Oct 19, 2009
Hello everybody it has been a minute but all is well I went to the doctors for my monthly visit and I am at I at 237pds with -19 in a months time so I do not have to go back for 3mos. I am down 10 dress sizes my shoes are to big lol and this feels really good I still need to work on something I know when I falter can always tell when I get upset I crave sugar whether it be soda or something sweet, it is my drug and I need to tone my body parts other than that I truly feel blessed and great. I have a goal of 200 to 180 I don't want to get very small cause I feel I am doing fine. Peace and Blessing to all.0 comments
10months with progress and hope
May 13, 2009
well I must say that the mind has a tendency to play tricks on you. I feel heavy as I did but the pics show other wise the last doc visit I spoke to the aprn and she told me to get my before and after pics so that I may remind myself I am not where I used to be. I am not my goal weight but I refuse to so heavy I can barely move. Today me and my son walked today got a bite to eat and I became lazy again (mind issue) I thought about the hill I had to climb you see when I first started I could barely make it without stopping or I had to and it was hard for me to breath well today was not a problem and I was in flip flops so what a milestone I have made there are changes to my regimen and eating I still need to make but I am thankful for blessings and changes that have been made.0 comments
At a plateau
Jan 13, 2009
Yesterday I went for an annual exam and do to the holiday season I expected to have gained alto of weight and to my surprise I did not. I have not gotten a second fill but I do also need to improve with my eating and start to exercise. I feel all will come together in time I am very hard on myself I have been for many years and this is something I have to change. I have new pictures and I have more curves and more changes with my body will occur when more weight is released.0 comments

Good evening well I am down 34pds and I wish I could say I felt great but I have some issues that need to tended too. I am broke out in hives due to an alergic reaction to medication as I was told I seem to be going around in circles. Also test came back from blood work at my primary care doctor and it shows my liver is inflamed the numbers today was a little higher than the first. No Hepatits but I want to get this all taken care of so please pray for me so I can truly enjoy my weight loss.
First follow up and surprised
Jul 23, 2008
Today was my first follow up apt since surgery I am 15 days post op I was expecting to be only -10pds but when I got weighed I could not believe my eyes I had lost 20 pds I am so excited I know I have a journey but with faith and persistance it will become a miracle and blessing and continued lifestyle change.
I cheated yesterday
Jul 19, 2008
well I had a piece of chicken wing and two small fries that i ate carefully it does not matter because the point is I cheated I am 12 days post op well the reasons I feel I cheated I watched a movie that disturbed me very sad and left me emotional I argued with my son I wanted egg drop soup I asked my mother to get it instead she gave me money to order food and said she would pick it up later well I order chicken/french fries for my youngest son and her food which I wake up this morning and it is still here hmm I really wonder is she being a sab and trying to mess me up considering I have really no support from no one.
3 days post op

Hi everybody I am getting excited I am 3/4 way almost there I just have to complete the test before surgery and wait for the day which will be approx about 4-6 weeks I have to get a filter originally I was supposed to get the bypass but due a hernia that the doctor does not feel is in my best interest he feel more comfortable with the lap band and is confident that I can still lose the weight I just need support. Also I have maintained a 23 pd weight loss since I been going through through the surgical process I have alot to be thankful and praise my heavenly father.
