I went to my one year post op appointment this morning. It could not have gone better. I have surpassed my doctor's expectations! My health is at 100% and I feel fantastic. I told him this surgery literally saved my life.

He looked at my

I am 10 months out and doing pretty well, however my book from the surgeon's office says that at 9 months out I should start trying to eat only 3 meals of 4-6 oz each per day and no snacks.  until now I have been eating 4 meals per day(4-6oz each meal)

I am about 8 months post op and I started drinking coffee again at about 6 months out.  My NUT told me I could drink coffee again after 6 months but I have been reading more lately on how WLS patients should not drink coffee because of the increased ch

Ive had these GORGEOUS knee high boots under my bed in the same box they came in for 8 years waiting for them to zip over my calves.  Today is the day people!   They zipped and they look fantastic with my skirt!

Although the scale actually went UP 1 lb this past week, I have experienced a few NSVs that I thought I'd share.

Seeing the success I have had so far with my surgery my mother has inquired about surgery for herself.  She is 67 years old and from what I can find online that may be too old for most surgeons.  Anyone have any experience with this?  

She has

For the last several years my Gynecologist has had trouble doing my pap smears because of my extra weight.  She has had trouble seeing my cervix during my exams.  Today I had to go for a 6 month repeat smear (my last one was a week before my surgery) a

I went in for my 6 month post op today.  Everything is going fantastic - except I have to take Miralax every day in order to not get constipated.  My dr doctor said I should NOT be taking Miralax every day and suggested I try probiotics instead, and if

We went to Cabella's over the weekend and I found a cute skirt on clearance - a size smaller than the clothes I bought a few weeks ago so I figured it would be a good skirt for the Fall with some leggings.  This in itself

Today I weighed in at 299.2 lbs.  This is the first time I have been under 300 since I was a teenager.  Feels great!

As of this morning I am now down 100 lbs since I started my 6 month pre-op diet last August!  I am so excited!  I know I am losing slowly since my surgery but it sure feels good to be down 100 lbs!

Let me start this by saying that before surgery I was a "puker".  If I smelled vomit or heard someone vomit, or smelled something gross I would vomit.  Everything made me vomit.  My husband said I was a professional.  

Since surgery though, the

I am 2 1/2 months out from surgery and I have lost 38 lbs since surgery - the rest was before surgery on my 6 mo diet.  I am just now starting to see a difference.  I can see it in my face and neck the  most, and my clothes are getting too big.  I have
