Bye Bye Curves, Hello Baby Bump!
Jun 19, 2008
Hey ya'll! It's been a while since I've written an update. Everything is wonderful. My journey has been so amazing and my life has changed in ways that I couldn't even have imagined. I'm almost 1 year post op and down 152 pounds as of Wednesday, 6/18/08.
Although not specifically in my plan, God's plan for hubby and I to become parents has been launched! I am 11 weeks pregnant. My medical team (OB/GYN, Bariatric Surgeon and Primary Care Doc) are all on board and talking to each other. I'm looking forward to a wonderful pregnancy and welcoming a little person to our world in January!
I hope that everyone is doing well, no matter where you are in your journey!
Wow, 6 Months Gone By!
Jan 10, 2008
I can't believe that I actually had surgery 6 months ago. My life has changed so much since July 6, 2007. I am so thankful that I did my research and finally moved forward with having this surgery.
The support of my husband, parents, friends and family has been wonderful. Although I've been an OH member since 2005, I was not active until October 2007. I am awed by the tremendous amount of support that I receive from the individuals on this site.
I came through surgery with no complications and have not had any in the last 6 months. I am diligent when it comes to my vitamins, supplements, protein, water and sleep. God willing, I will stay healthy and problem free.
Not sure how much I've lost, but last checkup with the doc was 12/11 and I was down 111 pounds.
Before surgery, I was forced to shop only at Catherines and Roamans (online) to get the 34s and 36s I needed. This weekend, I went to Lane Bryant for the first time in about 10 years. I'm happy to report that I purchased a pair of grey slacks and I wearing them today, in size 24.
I can't promise to keep this blog updated, but I will try! Best of luck to everyone on their journey!
