Happy Anniversary to me. It was 7 years ago today. I have gained 30 lbs back..I'm trying to get back on track. I can tolerate so much more these days. I hate that. I still drink a lot of water, but I started working fulltime in June of last year, and I noticed I am drinking more soda than I ever had. I have half of can or bottle once a day or once every other day. It's bad. I make myself not drink the whole thing. Cause I know it's bad for you. I don't drink coffee ...wish I did sometimes for the caffeine.
I am going to try harder. It's my goal!
Wish me luck!
Wow it's been a long time-6yr surgiversary today!

I can't believe I haven't written since my hernia surgery in 2010. As for that mess, the recovery was hard. I ended up with an infection and my incision opening up, so I had to "pack it" everyday with gauze. and it was dreadful. I saw Teel every Monday for about 3 months. Just to make sure everything was ok during and after the infection went away and the hole closed up. As of today, which is my 6year surgiversary!! I am doing good, sadly my thyroid is acting up, trying to control it. I have gained 13lb in a year. and gained 30lbs total since my DS. I WANT to get to back to the 180's or lower. I need to cut out all white stuff, I hate that I can tolerate sugar as I still seem to have a sugar cravings. Overall, I do not regret having this done. It was the best thing I could do for me. I have taken up boxing, I love it. it a great work out. but I need more exercise. And to eat less.
on the road to recovery

Otherwise, I am hanging in there.
TT/hernia repair date scheduled
Jan 12, 2010
I am excited about the TT however, I REALLY can't wait to get the hernia repaired... it has hindered me for nearly 5 years... I want it fixed. I should have it repaired during the DS surgery--hands down. Getting things in order at my house, such as got my "old" cleaning lady coming back. I stopped using her about a year ago. Well, she is coming back. I do not want to have a messy house, while recooperating, I do not want to feel compelled to clean and open any incisions... I want to be very careful. Have also explained to my boys they can't jump on me while I am sitting/standing... or anything. they need to be helpful, as I am sure they will. I go for the pre-surgeru stuff on the 25th. we'll see how that all goes.
1 year surgiversary!!

So I am at 104 loss from day of surgery (4-8-08) and 123 loss from my heavist (June 07)
I can't wait to get my century card, I finally talk to someone- she seems to be all over it.
Still having trouble getting all my protien in. I try to eat it more than take the supplements.
My hair has thinned, which sucks, cause I had GREAT hair. I pray it will come back.
But overall, I am happy with my decision. I am healthier, thinner, and proud of myself.

5 months out!
Okay I am at 215lbs...
Aug 28, 2008
Still going strong with my salads... I can eat more.. and I don't get ill at all. I can't eat anything I want... I am still okay with that. I don't measure my protien intake, hopefully I am getting enough. I really don't like those shakes. Blech.... Overall, I am pretty happy.
I have more energy, I can keep up with the boys, not always having to sit down.. you know what I mean?

July 3-- final Check up since the surgery
Jul 03, 2008
I am eating better, or atleast more, and most of the time it stays down.
Dr. Teel says I am doing great!!! So I'll go with that. Now I don't have to go back for 3 months.
Oh and I wasn't supposed to get any blood work done until 6months out, BUT he decided to order them today. So TEN vials of blood later- I swear I needed some juice and a cookie. Now they should have the results in 3 days, I can't wait.
