FINALLY another post :)

Sep 22, 2009

I have obviously not kept this blog updated but I assure you... it is NOT because I am unhappy or not losing.. it's just because I live a super crazy busy life and don't take the time to do this :)

Well, I had my surgery on Nov. 4th 2008 ... today is Sept. 22 2009, 10 months and 18 days (i think... i am tired, totally could have miscounted that) into my journey and i have lost ..... *drumroll please*  90 POUNDS !!!!!!!!!

Now, I know i could have had more off by now if i had been more strict on myself but I am super happy with what I DO have off... I am still losing regularly... I've had I think 3 fills and that brings me to 2 and 3/4 cc of juice in my 4cc band so I still have a ways to go :)

I will try to put pics up soon.  I still have a ways to go but I have come A LONG way !!!!!!!

Still love my Doctor and still love my band and most of all... I LOVE LIFE !!!

2 Weeks Post-Op

Nov 19, 2008

Life has been great since my surgery. Like I said, I have had absolutely NO PAIN AT ALL, just a little sorness for about the first 3 days. Now, my tape is off, my stitches are out, and i'm doing great! It has been about 2 weeks since my procedure... I can't hardly believe that.

The weight I have lost (now 34) is including my pre-op. I've only lost about 3 lbs since I came home but when you gradually start eating again from 3 weeks of STRICT YOU BETTER FOLLOW THE RULES dieting your body sometimes freaks out and says... "WOW, she's feeding me again, i'm gonna keep it all and not let her lose it!" lol This is to be expected... I am not upset in the least! I know in a week or so my body will level out and start losing again.

I have not measured since being home but my clothes are seriously about to fall off of me, lol And THAT in itself is VERY EXCITING!!!!! :) I will probably go for my first fill in a couple of weeks... so, we'll see how that goes :) They say that is when you REALLY start noticing a huge difference. I'm ready to get this show on the road!

I have no juice in my band at all and my food intake has SERIOUSLY went down. I mean... before the surgery... I LOVED TO EAT!!!! And I could eat alot... but now, I still like to eat :) But I am seriously not hungry. When I crave food, it's the taste i crave, not the feeling of being full which is a MIRACLE! I went to Taco Bell yesterday and got 1 soft taco, meat and cheese only and i could not eat the whole thing... about 3/4 of the way through i could not eat another bite... I used to could have eaten probaly 4 or 5... seriously. I eat about 1/2 package of Ramon Noodles, I can open a can of soup and eat the SAME can for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and still have some left over... CRAZY STUFF!!!!! 

Anyways... I'm excited about my journey... it has only just begun!
