The Century Mark Has Come And Gone

Got Ahead of Myself
Jun 27, 2008
Haven't had a chance to workout as much as I would like, but that happens when the kids are out for the summer. I've been so busy I'm dizzy, lol. So I get to keep doing what I'm doing and go back in 3 months.
The dr. wasn't as worried about the protien as I was and said that it was normal to loose some hair when the weight comes off this fast so all in all I'm extremely happy.
More Losing Ahead
Jun 05, 2008
Great news again, I'm well on my way to being a member of the century club!! I'm down 82 lbs. Yippeeeeee!!!!! Had my visit with the Dr. a couple of weeks ago and I was down 20 lbs. in one month which is perfect she said. Don't have to go back for 6 weeks and maybe by then I'll be at the century mark.
The bad news is I'm still having problems with my protien and losing a bit of hair. Don't know what to do, everything is starting to make me gag and I can barely tolerate the water but I struggle daily to get enough in.
My moods come and go, but I believe that has more to do with losing my mom than with the WLS. I just got back from my son's high school graduation in Panhandle. I'm sooo very proud of him and he was so excited to see how much I've lost. I did notice that I acted more like my old self. Didn't hang back and hide from people, I talked, laughed, smiled and had a great time. Soon I hope to have some new pics to upload.
I LOVE BEING A "LOSER"!!

Go back to see Dr. Patel and Dr. Rogers on the 16th of this month. Hope to be down by 75lbs by then which is totally do able. I actually can't wait to find out what Patel has to say :-) First time ever I have looked forward to a Dr's appointment. I'll also have the results of my first post-op blood work done so I'll know how to adjust my vits, or if I'll even need to adjust them.
Will post after next appointment.
AND THE JOURNEY REALLY BEGINS

Go back to see the Dr. on the 16th in May...hopefully all will be well and the weightloss will be at a steady loss rate.
No More Liquids....
Mar 23, 2008
Got released for food and over did it right off the bat and made myself sick so much that I started bleeding internally and had to make a trip to the emergency room. They gave me meds to keep me from being nauseated and I backed off to liquids and soft foods for the time being. The good news is that I've lost 10 more pounds in the last week and half.
I'm Officially A Loser
Mar 06, 2008
Needless to say I was blown away and confused as to what to do. After much talking and praying I went for it and spent the next few days getting blood drawn and having another stress test.
As of today I'm 2 weeks post op, still on a liquid diet and getting over the soreness. Doing better every day and still posetive that this was the best decision I've made for myself.
Don't have a working scale so I don't have any data about how much I've lost so far. Will have more details after next week when I go back for my 3 wk appointment with Dr. Patel.
