3 years Post Op. Wow

I just had an unfill this past week.  That is two this year.  I haven't had a fill since March 2008, but had two unfills this year. Funny how that works.  Turns out I am stressing myself tight lol

So here's where I am.

I started at 315 in December 2006
I got as low as 206 this spring.
I am right now 217. 
I went up to 222 last week because i was too tight.  (IF YOU ARE TOO TIGHT, GET UNFILLED DONT WAIT)

I went from a 30/32 to a 14/16 top and 16 bottom.
Sizes 9W shoe to a 7 regular shoe.
Ring size 11 to a 7
Bra 46DD to 40C/D

Life is great.  I'm not at any scale goal.. but I am at a life goal.  I can do ANYTHING I want to do.. and my weight doens't hold me down.  That's all that matters to me as the scale doesn't rule my life.

The angels in my life Dr. Curry and Lisa and Erin.. Thanks for helping me get where I'm at!

I am researching a doc in Mexico for my husband's band.  I am also researching a doc to do my arms in Cleveland.

Working hard with my store... lots going on there as usual.  So far behind

Sizes 14 and up.

Going to school and also working another full time job.  I am happy that I am not gaining weight even though I am not losing any.  I am in plateau land, but very okay with that.  I wear between a size 14 and 18.  Depending on the make and model lmao.

I went to Wal-Mart yesterday and bought a spaghetti tank size 12/14 size LARGE lol  too funny.

Only thing I want to fix is my freaking arms.

Anywho.. I will do measurements again October 1.

That's all for now.

May Update

May 09, 2009

Okay.. let's see.  I couldn't eat for about 3 months.. I finally grew a brain and went and got an unfill of .4.  Feeling much better now, and I can eat.  I started to lose again.  YEAH ME.  I didnt think I needed an unfill because I hadn't gotten a fill in OVER A YEAR!

My shop is going really well..  come on WLS people.. lots of centers in CLEVELAND.. where the hell are you!!  Sell your too big clothes here.  Curvy Consignments  13902 Puritas Ave Cleveland, OH 44135

Got my old job back.. life is going to be quite busy from now on.  Which I like.  I was on a plane for the first time since my surgery.. I dont have to snuggle with my neighbors anymore.. wahoo.. although in this case it sucked.. all my plane neighbors except one were hot. lmao

I am on a break from School for the moment.. too much going my MBA will have to wait.

I am going to attach my measurements now..  I am surprised on how much they have changed even though my weight really hasn't.  Keep in mind..the June is JUNE 2008.. May is now...

Arms are getting bigger because of HANG TIME lmao  Not a pretty sight at all.. but my midsection..way down.

That is pretty much everything at the moment..  I am aiming for another 25 lbs for Dr. Curry.. and for me..still looking for 157, although I highly doubt it without having skin removed.

Later Gators!

Back on Track

Mar 02, 2009

I went up as high as 222, and now I am back to 216 this morning.  I spend around 12 hours a day on my feet at the store, and have been playing hockey at least twice a week.  My food is much less than before, and not nearly as much junk... so why aren't I losing more?  I know I have to increase my water intake... which is bizarre for me.. because I used to drink 12-16 glasses a day. lol, Now I am down to like 3 glasses.  Just not that thirsty in the winter.  I haven't seen the gym, because I have been working so much getting the store ready.  My legs are constantly killing me from standing all day.  I have Meralgia Paresthetica, which basically means pinched nerves in my hips that make my legs numb.  That isn't so bad (minus the bruises, because I dont feel myself bumping them) But when you stand too long they go numb, like the "sat on your foot too long" tingle feeling.  OUCHIE!  And it doesnt go away for hours.

Anyway, so I am going to get back to the gym this week, it won't be today due to having school tonight, and tomorrow is hockey practice, so Thursday will be the day.  I think I will start working out M/TH/F/S/S Since I have school on Tues and hockey on Weds.  For the days I have hockey on Sunday, I wont go to the gym that day.

I am aiming for 199 by my birthday.  (May 6th, send gift cards) lol  That gives me 9 weeks from today to lose 17 lbs.  Roughly 2 lbs a week.  I think that is doable.  I just need to up my water and down my Taco Bell. lol

I fit into a size 16 Talbots Pants lol and a 14/16 Lane Bryant Top yesterday.. that made me very happy.  But I know in a regular (non plus size) store I am still a 18. lol  I am working at it...

So my official weigh in day will be Tuesdays.  Today was 216.  Til next week!

February Update

Feb 09, 2009

I haven't been around in awhile... Funny thing, lost my job.. and then got busy lol (but not busy losing weight)
Since losing my job, I have gained back 10 lbs.  Although I am playing more hockey, so I am hopeful some might be muscle? lol  But my clothes still fit.. so I'm happy.

Okay.. on to the good news...

I am opening a plus size consignment shop on March 1.

More good news.. I am back on the wagon.  I am at 218 as of this morning.. my goal (although a lofty one) is to get to 199 by April 1st.. or at the very latest May 6th.  My best friend of mine is in need of motivation, and I plan to help her along! (and help myself)

That's all I got to say about that... (how's that Miss Kelly?)  lol

Nothing good to report.. in the land of plateau. 

I guess the bright side is, I'm not gaining.  I am still over 100 lbs gone.. but I still have 50 to go..   I am going to set up a program to start 11/1/8 and lose the 8-11 lbs I need to lose to get under 200 by the New Year.

Things are changing in my life... Greg is basically gone, and I have many things keeping me busy.  I will be going to the gym 4-5 days a week starting Thursday 10/30.  I have 5 hockey games to play between Saturday morning and Monday night.

So my goal is under 200 by 1/1/9.

September Update

Sep 13, 2008

I live in the land of stress.. had some major issues going on for awhile.. so I am back on the horse.. my husband is out over the road trucking.. so I am basically by myself.  I am working 3 jobs and going to school for my MBA.  I am also on two hockey teams.  And my 3 dogs to take care of.  Full life.  Surprised I have time to eat. lol  But that's just it.. eating the wrong stuff and chowing down on chocolate.. ugh.. i put on 5 lbs in the past month.. but I am happy to say I have lost 3.5 of them. 

So I am back on the wagon.  I am playing hockey two nights a week and going to the gym 2-3 days and working 14 hours a day on my feet when the Browns are at home. 

So no complaints here..  Still over 100 lbs gone, still under 40 BMI, and still in 16/18 clothes.. what is there the complain about when I used to weigh over 300 lbs, used to have a BMI of 59 and used to wear a 30/32???? 

Monday I am recommitting again. chicken once a day for dinner, exercise at the gym on Monday/Thursday/Friday.. Hockey Weds/Saturday/Sunday (when no Browns) and Rest on Tuesday when I am in school.  I want to get to my 4th goal of being under 200 lbs.  And I want to do it fast!!!

BMI out of the 40's!! Woot Woot!

Aug 06, 2008

Finally my BMI is out of the 40s.  I have been waiting for this day for awhile.  I know this means I still have a ways to go.. BUT I started at 59, so this is incredible for me.  I got to my first major goal of clothes out of the 20's, then my second goal of 100 lbs gone, and now my third goal of BMI under 40.  I wouldn't even qualify for surgery anymore.. yeah!!! (I never had co-morbidities). 

All is well here with my band... although I did get stuck last night on popcorn lol  That was a first!!!!
