It has been awhile!!

Jan 19, 2008

It has been a while since I posted so here goes. I am almost a year out from surgery ( it will be 1 year on 2/6/08) and as of today I have lost 135 lbs. I feel like a new person. I can cross my legs. Yipee!! I can keep up with my grandson and we are expecting our 2nd grandchild in july of 2008. I have been very busy at work and am sorry I have not been able to update lately. My hubby and I joined the YMCA and try to workout at least 3 times a week. Having this surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I would not have changed anything even the dumping as it has taught me alot about myself. I am a stronger person and more confident in myself now than I ever have been.

Yea, everything went well in surgery. It only took one and a half hours. My blood pressure was really high right after surgery and the next day but seems to be fine now.

Well, It has been awhile. 

I went thru all the tests and the 3 month doctor supervised weight loss that my insurance requires. I also had to have my gall bladder removed (gall stones) . 

The doctors office submitted the info to the insurance and I was approved within a week.

My surgery is scheduled for Febuary 6, 2007. I am excited to have this done. I know I will probably be a little nervous the closer it gets but, I will be fine. I have my family's support and love to see me through.
