My weight loss has slowed way down and on a good day I'm at 199 lbs but at my one year appt I was up 4lbs and got fussed at by the doctor. I've not been to the gym since knee surgery and I know that is one reason I'm not getting the weight off any quicker and the fact that carbs have found a way back into my life and it's been hard to stay away from them but I'm trying. Anyway that is what is going on in my life.
Knee surgery and update on me.
Jul 23, 2009
I was down to 205 lbs 2 weeks ago but since surgery I'm back up a few pounds so praying it is just fluid retention!
I'm doing alot better with my eating but still have to watch what I eat when it comes to meat.
To all my friends on here please keep in touch!
Off to Florida
Jun 11, 2009
I'll be gone to Florida for a couple of weeks starting today so if you leave a message and I don't get right back to you that's why, not sure where I'm going to have internet.
I'm also down to 207 lbs this morning so its going to be hard without a scale for two weeks but I hope it will be even less when I get back. Have a great weekend!
A little update on me.
May 27, 2009
Below is what I found on the internet and he showed me some stretching exercises to do and to keep my knee iced but this pain just started up last week when I was sick and that's why I had to get an ultrasound to see if I had a blood clot. Not sure if this has anything to do with the knee hurting for the last month and that I'm having a MRI done for on Friday because the new pain in my thigh just started. Anyway I went and seen the "Nut" today and was down 2 more lbs and since I first seen her in July last year before the surgery I'm down 80 lbs. So I hope next week when I go for my B12 shot at Dr. Miles I'll be down there too. According to the WLS boards a stall after 6 months is perfectly normal so I know as long as I keep doing what I'm suppose to I'll get the rest of this weight off and I have no time limit to lose the weight because this is my life now not just 50 more lbs. She also said that I don't look as big in person as my pictures make me look so when you look at my picture think of me 10 lbs lighter lol. What is Iliotibial Band (I.T.B.) Syndrome? The I.T.B. is a thickened strip of fascia or muscle cover. It begins as a thick band that covers the outer thigh muscles, and travels down the outside of the leg to the , where it attaches to the outer edge of both the tibia and fibula, just below the knee joint. In so doing, the I.T.B. must lie against the protruding outer edge of the femur, just above the knee joint. As the knee is flexed and extended, the I.T.B. rubs against a thin fluid filled sac (a bursa), between it and the femur. The bursa acts to reduce friction, and to protect the I.T.B. However, when the bursa does not function properly, or there is a change in your running or cycling pattern, or a biomechanical foot or leg problem begins acting up, the I.T.B. becomes inflamed and painful.

Update on what is going on with me lately :(.

I have a Meniscus Tear and strained Ligament in my knee...got a cortisone injection and was told in about two weeks might have to get an MRI. The shot hurt like hell because he hit the bone and I could feel it even after he numbed it :(. I was told to keep it iced for a couple of days which I've already been doing and in 48 hrs it should be feeling better and to give him a call in two weeks and let him know how I'm doing.
He also put me on another antidepressant medicine which is Wellbutrin which I had in the past and couldn't tell it done anything for me but maybe it will with the Lexapro I'm on might do the trick, all I know is I want to get out of this mood I've been in for a couple of weeks.He says he's going to take me off the Lexapro eventually because I've been on it for about 2 yrs and now it doesn't seem like its working as well, so I guess I'll have to wait and see. His reasoning for what is going on with me is either Menopause rearing it's ugly head with the mood swings and being hot one minute and cold the next or that for the last 7 months since weight loss surgery that I've been on this high with losing the weight really fast and feeling good that now that it's slowing down and having pain in my knee is making me feel like I'm not doing as well and who knows maybe he is right! I just feel like I'm mad at the world at times and things seem to be getting on my last nerve! Has anyone else felt like this?
Okay well going to go kick back in the chair and rest my knee because the numbness is wearing off and starting to feel pain again.
4 months out.

I'm still getting sick from eating more often than I would like and beginning to wonder if this is how it's going to be for the rest of my life. I do feel better about myself and have more energy but this vomiting is starting to get old and not never knowing what will make me sick. One day I can get something then eat it again another day and it makes me sick.
My hair has really been falling out for almost 2 months and today I decided to get it cut short and have a new color put on it and my stylist said she didn't see any new hair coming in so I'm like well I hope my hair is going to grow back.
Anyway I have some mixed emotions going on but for the most part I'm happy with the outcome so far.

Had some blood work done at the diabetic doctors the other day and got the results today which were A1C was 7.6 and in August was 7.5 so don't know why it's up a little but I'll take it because Dec 2007 it was 9.4 and normal is 4.3 - 6.1. Also they said that my kidney and liver functions were normal. Next month I will get my blood work for my 3 months follow up and that will show how everything else is working I guess.
