Just a quick update. I haven't lost any weight over the last month. I am fluctuating between 185 and 190. I am really ready for this to move. I am loving the spring weather but darn with these rashes. I have more energy than I have had in years. I love life and want to live it to it's fullest. I'm thinking of joining the YMCA just trying to debate whether I will use it enough to justify the cost. Anyway...gotta get the scales moving a little more. I realize that I have this panni and part of the weight is from it but darn! I would love to get to 160. No problems other than the rashes to report. Later....

I am now down to 185, I slip between 188 and 185 most days. I hope this isn't the end of the weight loss. I have a lot of loose skin on my stomach, during the summer this area really gets in a mess. I have had several rashes with peeling, itching and redness. I would love to get this taken care of. Maybe later this year??? That would take care of 15 pounds...I'm sure. I would also love to have a breast lift, possibly with implants to make things back where they are supposed to be. I am going to start a saving account to save up for this. I do hope to get the tummy taken care of first. I have lower back problems d/t a bulging disk and I believe getting rid of this excess stomach weight pulling down would help a great deal. I'm trying to tone my arms and thighs up, I am thinking about joining our local YMCA, the kids would enjoy that.

Well....it has been a while since an update. I am down to 203 pounds. Only 4 more pounds till onederland. I am ready for it to come on! I can't believe it will be 1 year since my surgery in just a few more weeks. I hope to be under 200 by that time. I have had some stresses in my life lately and haven't been as on track as I should be and I know that but I am still losing and feeling physically good most days. I would do this surgery over again in a heartbeat. I feel so much better than I did 1 year ago. My DH, son and brother in law and I went to Auburn to see the game Saturday and I actually had a good time. A year ago, you couldn't have paid me to go. I will update again soon. Toodles.....

Today marks the day of my 16th wedding anniversary. I went for my follow up appt with Dr. Sherer today (supposed to be 3 month, I am almost 4 months). I was down by 66 pounds...I am now at 255 pounds. I still have a way to go but I am happy. I am losing my hair but Dr. Sherer said not to worry it will come back. I feel so much better than I did this time last year. I am beginning to love myself again. Will update more later.

My surgery was 11/11/2005, it went really well. I hardly have any bruising at all. I walked the day of surgery and have been walking ever since. I have not been nauseated at all, and have tried several semi soft foods since surgery. I am also able to tolerate protein shakes with fat free milk, they are very good. I go to the Dr. tomorrow for follow-up and will see what my weight loss has been so far. I will post more later.
Hi Everyone! I weighed on Sunday at the beginning of the week and had lost 15 pounds total. That's in 2 weeks, 2 days time. I am pretty pleased about that. I can tell the difference in my clothes, they fit a little looser. My mom says she can tell in my face around my eyes and such. I can't really tell myself. Tonight is the Birmingham area Christmas dinner. I can't wait to see everyone. I will update more later.
Well...I weighed last Friday and was down by...drumroll please...31 pounds. Unbelievable. I already feel so much better. It's amazing and I thank God for allowing me the priveledge of this tool to assist me with weightloss and regaining my health. I will update again soon.

It's been a rough week. I had been sick at the beginning of last week and ended up in the E.R. on Wednesday night. I thought it might be something G.I. related but it wasn't. I went to my GYN on Thursday and decided to have my right ovary scoped to see if that was the problem due to the cyst that has been there for quite some time. Well, ended up being in surgery for 2 1/2 hours (much longer than the dr. expected). My left ovary was attached to my colon and my right ovary was pulling and twisting and my bladder was involved. He explained the procedure as having to pull layers of wallpaper off. He said I had a lot of adhesions and scar tissue. I am still in a great deal of pain and hope it passes very soon. Saturday after surgery I was up to 230 pounds...I freaked out. He said that he left 2 liters of saline in my abdomen..but darn. I weighed 220 yesterday and am back to 217 today. I haven't hardly been able to eat without getting sick on my stomach so I really was worried about all that weight. I guess it was just the swelling and water retention. I started my Premarin Sunday night and hope that I don't have any ill effects from it. I have been a lot warmer than I was before, kind of a warm flush against my skin. I was soooo cold before. I was terrified about my bowels, but they have moved now and I will be watching them very carefully. I am going to be JUST FINE.
