Well I am almost 2 1/2 years out since my surgery and boy has things changed. I was just getting ready to CELEBRATE my 2 yr surgiversary on July 24th and the fact that I have lost over 150 pounds and BANG I found out I was pregnant!!!! Over that now and very happy to be almost 6 1/2 months pregnant with another little girl. Due March 17th 2009.
Weight is going OK I have only gain about 12 pounds so far during my pregnancy but because it is a GIRL and weight all seems to be going to my butt and legs just starting to get a kangaroo pouch.
Hopefully once the baby is born I will lose what I gained. Have been doing good with the diet the only thing that I have started to drink again is Diet soda every once in awhile also carving Chick-fil-a and black licorice.
Just alittle update!
Hope everyone is doing well!

I haven't written in quite some time, I didn't even update for my One Year Anniversary. I will try to do it this weekend and post some new pictures. I just have a minute to post that I went to the mall the other day with my husband and decided to pass right by Lane Bryant and go into New York& Company
to see if there clothes fit yet.......... Well guess what I only wanted to try on Jeans and a tee shirt The 16's were too big and the 14's were alittle baggy also I was so EXCITED and didnt want to try the 12's yet. I walk out of the dressing room with the BIGGEST smile I was so excited I can shop in a REGULAR STORE NOW
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have to gather all my coupons that I have been saving and go SHOPPING
Will update later.
11 months and counting!!!!

It has been 11 months since my surgery. I can not believe that I have lost over 125 pounds in less then a year!!! It has been a wonderful journey so far and I am so glad that I have done this. I went to a wedding last night and it was so neat!!! There were people there that didnt realize it was me and they thought my husband had a new wife.Very Funny. I always like to shop for other people but now it all about ME I love to shop now. The dress I brought for the wedding was a size 16!!
Until next month....

Wow !! Where has the time gone????
I am just over 9 months and I have offically lost 110 lbs.
I am wearing a size 14/16 top and an 18 bottom. For the first time since I was 12 years old I am wearing JEANS!!! I am so happy that I did this and I wouldn't change it for the world. It is so nice when people notice your body before you face I no longer just have that "pretty face" comment that everyone used to say. I just recently took my 9 months photos and I can really start to see the change.
6 months today!!!!

Well I am offically 6 months out today and have lost over 90lbs. I havent been able to reach 100lbs yet. I would like to hit that by my birthday in March. I am very happy that I had this surgery and wish I would have done it alot sooner. This website and the barix support meeting have help me a whole lot of help. I am just starting to feel more hungry then usually but I think I need to check which tank is empty(like Shauna says) I think I may be more thirsty then hungry I still have a problem with my fluid intake especaiily protein drinks(yuck) I am still struggling with hair loss but Thank God I have enough so it doesn't look bald I just keep getting it cut shorter every 6 weeks so it looks healther but thinner. Just a quick update on more progress and I hope everyone is as happy as I am about doing the surgery. I would like to Thank each and everyone of you for all your help and support over the last couple of months and the continued support thru my journey.. THANK YOU
