6 months post-op

Jan 18, 2012

 haha I just read my previous post from 3 months ago.  I wanted to be at my goal weight right now.  That is hilarious.  I have only lost 33lbs in the past 3 months for a total of 93lbs since surgery.  113lbs from my heaviest of 300lbs.  That's not that bad, but I'm upset the weight loss has slowed down so rapidly.  I think I drink too many calories and I'm not consistent with exercise.   Some weeks I'll workout really hard and other weeks I do nothing at all.  I'm shocked by how much sugar I can consume and not get sick at all.  I always thought I'd have dumping syndrome with even the tiniest amount of sugar... but I can eat a strawberry sundae from mcdonalds and not get sick.  It's kind of good because it means I don't have to give up sweet treats for life.... but it is bad because I don't like that I can sabotage myself.

I'm at the point where I could maintain my weight at 187lbs.  But I'm determined to keep going and make it to my goal of 130lbs by the end of May.

3 Months post-op

Oct 17, 2011

 It has been 3 months since my surgery.  I have lost 60lbs since surgery and 80lbs total from my heaviest.  I see myself every day and so I didn't realize how much of a transformation I have made until I looked at old photos of me at my heaviest and compared it to the latest body shot of mine. I was shocked!  I am actually developing a womanly figure as opposed to being a round blob! I am so excited. I have lost 80lbs and have 80lbs to go to hit my goal. I hope to reach it by the middle of Jan of 2012.

I did it!

I am almost one week out from my surgery on July 18th.  I've backed out twice before when I was 19 and again when I was 23. So, the fact that I actually went through with it this time is still shocking to me. I'm still in pain and I can't sleep on my stomach and sometimes I wish I could order a pizza and stuff my face like old times, but I know things will get better once I heal. I've already lost 10lbs. I'm just thankful everything went smoothly and I'm looking forward to getting this weight off quickly.
