June 1st, 2009....almost a year!
Jun 03, 2009Well...June 10th will be my one year since surgery. I'm still huge but you can't beat losing 87 pounds. I could not have done it on my own. I bought a bike and yes I've actually been riding it...when its not raining. I'm at a loss for words anymore. I have lots of energy now except when I get home from work. I can cross my legs and bend down to tie my shoes and walk much further than I have been able to in years! I have not lost a pound since 7 months out and I feel very discouraged. I am going to see another doctor and see if somethings going on I don't know about and if I have to go under again I will. I talked to someone last weekend who had gastric bypass 2 times and is now going in for a third surgery. She gained all her weight back because she didn't follow her surgeons plan. I told her I follow the food just fine, excercise is my current issue. I'm dealing with the anemia. I guess I don't understand why she would continue to get this surgery- which I'm pretty sure she has no stomach at this point- and NOT follow what her surgeon tells her!!! I will only go again if they find something wrong. I'll post when I find out.
