2 Years Post-Op Today

May 09, 2009

Today is my 2 year surgiversary!!  Time has gone by so quickly but it is amazing how much better I feel today than I did two years ago, even at being 18 weeks pregnant.  My lowest weight was 152 and today I weigh 161.  Over the last 18 weeks have have gained 9 pounds.  I hate to think what I would weigh today without having VSG.  The pregnancy is going just fine, I have not had any complications what so ever.  I met with a dietician in the beginning because she was worried that I wouldn't be able to eat enough to gain the weight I needed to gain for the baby.  I assured her I would do the best I could and I/we seem to be doing just fine so far.  I will say that with this baby I have had a huge sweet tooth.  I have never been much of a sweets person but lately I have wanted to eat anything sweet.  I'm sure that is what helped put on the 9 pounds although the doctor at my last appointment was so happy that I had finally put on a little weight, who would have ever thought a doctor would say such a thing to me!!  The past couple weeks I have focused more on eating fruit when I'm looking for something sweet instead of having a cookie.  I know that is a much better/healthier choice for me and the baby.

Anyway, I just wanted to update you all and say I still feel VSG is the best choice I could have ever made 2 years ago!!
