I had WLS!  This is uncharted territtory for me! I have stopped losing weight and now its about maintanance! Thats tough! I'm older now too so my body is going through some crazy changes! I am ALWAYS concerned about weight gain because I have come too far to get big again! I haven't been on this site in a long time! I know that it will help me stay on track and focused.

I have stopped losing weight. Its my own fault and I am soo afraid of getting big again. I have been stressed out and I turn to food to relieve that stress.

Onderland!!

May 20, 2008

Well its official. I am in Onederland!! I weigh 198. That makes my weight loss so far 125 pounds. Thats a person. I have lost one third of my body weight. Life is good but stressful. I have been trying to win my battle with sugar these days but stress makes it tough to say no. I have been going to the gym again. I gave it up for awhile because my car was broken into the last time I was there. I am a size 14 now. My family and friends don't want me to lose anymore weight but I am working on being a size 10. Thats about another 30 pounds to go. I am coming up on a year since surgery. I think thats an attainable goal by the end of summer.

Six months out!!

Feb 20, 2008

Well I am six months out from surgery and doing okay!! I have been sick but nothing to really worry about.  During the week that I was sick I lost twelve pounds!! The very next week the scale told me that I had gained 4 pounds. At first I was upset by this but I soon realized that it was just my body trying to recover. I am now a size 16. I love shopping for new clothes(typical) and I have a hard time wanting to eat food. I still remain happy with my decision and only wish I had done it sooner.

Until next time,

120 pounds lost!!

Feb 05, 2008

So I was sick last week and with that I had no real desire to eat. I knew that I had lost some weight but I am now at 120 pounds!! Gone forever!! I am soo excited. I am almost in onderland.

Five months out!!

Jan 22, 2008

Well I am five months out from surgery!! I have lost a total of 100 pounds. I am a size 16 in skirts and some tops I am a medium-what? I feel good. I have days where all I want to do is drink fluids eating is not always easy for me. I have a hard time with taking my time. I am great with the 30-30 rule. I am still not getting in enough protein. I am taking my vitamins and calcium. I am not expereincing and hair loss. I have dimples in my face that I never knew about because they are cover by my fat. I love the attention that comes from members of the opposite sex. I will try to not let it go to my head. People who haven't seen me in a long time are shocked by the change. I love that. I love shopping for new clothes. I no longer have to buy things with an "X" in it!! Clothes are cheaper with all of this weight loss. I am amazed.

Update on me!!

Nov 09, 2007

I am down 83 pounds!! I have lost 43 since the surgery and I am three months out!! Crazy. I am happy to say that I can cross my legs now. Who knew that I would get such pleasure out of something so simple. 

More to come later.

One month post op....

Sep 16, 2007

So today is my one month anniversary. I spent it sick in bed because I ate some food yesterday that I was not supposed to. I am still going through that trial and error period where I can get sick if I get the wrong thing. I have lost 24 pounds since surgery and am excited to lose more but I have not been going to the gym like I should. I have not been taking my vitamins, something about those Flintstones chewables just don't agree with me. I am looking for a new one to try. I don't regret my decision to have this surgery and am pleased so far with the results even though I have been sick. I know that it will pass.

Two days in the hospital.....

Sep 01, 2007

Well somehow this week I landed in the hospital becuase of nausea.. I woke up on Tuesday not feeling well at all and by the night time I was admitted to Abbott Northwestern for it and an overnight stay. The doctors can't really tell me all that was wrong with me but lets just say that I am better now and have been home for two days now.  Thank God for fast healing.......

Five days post op......

Aug 21, 2007

So I am home from the hospital and am soo happy to be home. My surgery experience was great, no real complaints except for one nurse that was asking too many personal questions, but thats just her personality I guess. The only time I asked myself "What have I gotten myself into?" was when I woke up in recovery and was in some pain. My mouth was really dry when I was put into my overnight room and the nurse would not give me water. I survived though. 

Since I have been home I have NOT been getting in the recommended protein. Drinking the water is a chore, a happy chore but one none the less. I have no hungar pains and no appeite to eat anything. Thats makes it rough to even think about food. I am hopeful that over time this will get easier. I know that it will. I am off of work for the next two weeks and am looking forward to the time to just relax. I am on pain pills and don't need to take them all the time which is nice. I don't like being drugged up. I am soo glad that I did this and I have told myself that I will not step on the scale until my first post op visit with Dr. Drew. Wish me luck with sticking to that.
