I jumped on the scales this morning down 3 more lbs.That takes me to 110 lbs lost in less then a year.It will be one year the end of April.I'm finding the weight loss has slowed dramatically.I work out 5 days a week cardio everyday weight lifting alternate days.I am actually on a beginners running program now.Every morning faithfully I get up and start my day out on the treadmill.

Im down 3 more lbs since the 18th of January.Grand total lost 107 lbs.Its getting more and more difficult for the weight to come off.I am working out everyday cardio and weight lifting alternate days.Ive noticed an increase in my appetite and struggle with hunger.I write everything down I eat to keep a record and keep me on track.Its going to be a long journey to the end.

Im down 97lbs so lost 4lbs this month.Hmmmm the weight loss is slowed down alot.I now go to the gym 5 days a week an hour a day and walk alot.I am finally drinking my 8 glasses of water a day.

I live in fear of regaining my weight.I see my scales sway back and forth a few lbs each day.I find that I am now starting to get hungry and am able to eat more.I still measure everything I eat and abide by the no drinking within 30 min of eating rule.But my hunger makes me fearful.I know that I could eat more then the cup of food.Im not sure if this is normal to feel hungry at this stage.I will have to check with my surgeon when im down in January to make sure everything is ok.

As for food I can eat pretty well anything (within our eating plan).I have no problem with meat or bread or pasta's.Im thinking of ways of speeding up my weightloss or giving it at least a boost.

I have some medifast pacakes left but will check to make sure its ok to take it before I do.

The weight loss has definately slowed I am now down 93 lbs so thats 7 more lbs this month.I have been exercising 4 days a week with the book camp program I'm in and doing everything I am supposed to be doing.

A week ago I had a bit of an issue and had to go into the emergency dept at the local hospital.I was having a deep aching pain in my upper left quadart  next to my inscision.The pain didnt seem to go away.When I started feeling nautious I decided I better go to the hospital to find out what was going on.

I ended up spending the night in the emergency dept hooked up to IV.The doctor on call sent me for xrays and came back to tell me she thought I had a blockage in my intestines.She thought they may need to put a tube down my nose to release the pressure.

I told the dr on call she needs to ceck with my surgeon in moncton before they do that so they dont cause damage.She was very rude saying...well you did after all choose this surgery and with this type of surgery blockages are common in some.Some doctors are just rude.I waited for the surgeon at the hospital to see me and he was quite honest saying that they do not have training in this procedure.That he only knows of one doctor in the province that knows the surgey but isnt practicing.He told me there are risks with putting the tubes down.He requested my surgical files from moncton and decided to put me on a soft food diet for awhile and see how I do.If I start vomiting that I need come back in that they may need to do the tubes after all.I also found out that I shouldnt be taking as much brn buds as I have been eating that may have caused me some of my problems.On my boot camp program they want me to have a half a cup of bran every morning for breakfast.I guess we dont need as much fibre as the rest of the "NORMAL" figure.

Lesson learned.Wish me luck for next month hope the weight loss continues:)

I am now down 86lbs and have lost 8 lbs this month.I joined a program called the healthier weigh program two weeks ago.I meet with personal trainers and work with a nutritionist for 16 weeks.Wish me luck I hope it assists me with the weight loss.

I now go to the gym 4 days a week for about an hour and also now wear a pedometer trying to work on walking 10,000.00 steps a day.Still have a ways to go.But Im sure it will come.

I have no issue with foods or vomiting and thank heavens no dumping syndrome.Sometimes I wonder if the surgery was ever did and that scares me.

Well lets see I am down 6lbs this month the weight loss has definately slowed.But its a loss and not a gain I will take it 78lbs lost thus far.My hair loss continues to happen.Handfuls still coming out.Thank heavens I had lots to start with.Im taking my vitamins and eating as directed but the hair loss still continues.I guess there is nothing more I can do just hope it stops soon.I went and seen my hair dresser the other day.She told me I still have lots of hair and not to worry.Its just a scarey feeling:(

I've been feeling very tired the last two weeks cant seem to get enough sleep.I see DR Beausoliel the end of this month to have my check up.I will mention this to him along with my hairloss and see what he thinks.
