Just an update

 Wow had my life changed for the better!  The confidence and happiness that I have gained when I lost the weight is amazing.  Life is good.  Never would I have imagined that when I started this journey I would be part of the WWLSS group team.  Dawn, Teresa and I have been hosting meetings at the Hospice for the past year and a half.  Wow.  Helping people during this journey is so rewarding emotionally.  It's funny how life changes for the better when you feel better about yourself.

I've lost 100 pounds!

Well I really am quite surprised. I feel amazing, so full of energy and actually enjoying life! I thought I would miss my favorite comfort foods much more than I actually do or should I say don't, lol. At this point in my life I would be happy to live on Wendy's chili (26 protien and 230 cal in a small) and Wolfgang Puck tomato basil soup. Still drinking my 3 protien shakes a day and seem addicted to dill pickle pumpkin seeds. I'm looking forward to summer weather, something I use to dread. My life so much fuller now that I am not, lol.

What an amazing journey!

Well It's been a little over 7 months and I feel and look fantastic.  Has it been easy...not always, but it has always been worth it.  I am down almost 100 pounds....WOW.  I look like an entirely different person and my personality and zest for life if finally shining as I become the person I was ment to be!  I have gone from a size 22/24 to a size 8.  Thanks Dr. Marshall I am truly grateful!

It's been awhile but I a feeling great.

September 14th seems so long ago and it was only a month and a half ago.  How time flies.  I had my surgery and had a few minor complications (at the time it seemed like the end of the world, lol) I was opened instead of lap, my IV infultrated, I needed 2 pints of blood and I was sent home with oxygen.....I still use it at bedtime.  I have lost a total of 44 pounds and although I still feel weak at times, I am mall walking, block walking and feeling so much better.  Never did I believe the "you won't want to eat", who me?..please I can always eat.  BUT IT IS TRUE!  3 small servings of food each day, and I am talking small, and my beloved protien shakes (I truly enjoy them).  This whole experience, even the rough times, has been  the best gift I could have ever done for myself.  No more acid reflux, endless coughing, high blood pressure, sore legs and feet!  It is truely amazing!

Finally, I get my results from my sleep apnea appointment....

I've waited a month for the results and I now have to do another sleep study with the Cpap Machine on Saturday nite.  I'm actually excited to get this moving along.  Spoke with Sally Green at  Henery Ford Bi County and she said we can get thing moving, so I am hoping very shortly I will have a surgery date  .  Looking forward to moving forward with my new lifestyle!

Have you ever been so close, but yet so far, that is how I'm feeling right now. I have been working towards surgery since Feb. of this year.  My appointment with a gallbladder specialist held me up for two months alone!  All of my test have been completed, my sleep apnea follow-up is the only thing slowing me down.  I want my surgery date.....I know it will be in September but if feel so close and after all these months, now I'm impatient!!  Go figure.  There's nothing I can do the make things move faster, so here I sit and wait and wait.  But on the positive side....good things come to those who wait
