I know it's been forever.
Apr 14, 2011Hello all my beautiful friends! I know that it has been forever since I have written or even updated anyone as to what is going on with me.
There have been so many changes in my life where do I start. I first have to say that I feel amazing! Even though we have been through so much and I say we because it hasn't been just me it has been me and my entire family my husband and my three beautiful children. When you start a weight loss surgery it's not just you if you have a family it's the whole family at least I think so...
I have lost a total of 170 pounds and I am feeling great except for a few issues that I have had. In January I had to have foot surgery I had two broken bones. Then in on March 15 I had to have a total hysterectomy due to having Endometriosis which was in stage 5. So I have been through a lot this year but I am keeping on going!
My husband has been hospitalized twice for congestive heart failure but he is doing well now.
In November the Monday after Thanksgiving my house burnt down and we lost everything all my sons birthday gifts and Christmas gifts but God is good and he got us through it!!!
With all that being said I am feeling great now and I am loving life!!!
I started out at 318 pounds when I had my surgery in July 21 2009 I was wearing a size 28 in pants and now I am wearing a size 8.
It took me such a long time to realize that I was smaller than I was I would still go to the big girls section at the store for the longest time but now I go to the juniors section and I love all the cute clothes that I can choose from.
I went shopping two weeks ago for my daughters prom dress and I found this beautiful dress that I never thought I would be able to wear so I bought it (because it was on clearance for like $7.00 from $139.00 "great buy") even though I have no were to wear it to but it was so beautiful I figured I might be able to wear it to a wedding or something I am hoping at least... lol
Life is so beautiful and I am so excited about what is to come. I don't think that it can get any worse I have been through a house fire two surgeries a sick husband my daughters prom I think I am doing good if I can go through all these things that are hard on you life "except my daughters prom that was a joyous event we had such a great time getting her ready and seeing her off to her first formal dance of her teen years.".
Thank you all for listen to me and I pray that everyone out there who has had wls is doing great and that they feel great about themselves and always keep up the hard work and that the accomplish everything that they desire because one thing that I have accomplished is my weight and I know that I am going to continue accomplish my weight issue. I feel so great and I am so happy with my success...
God Bless you all and I pray for great success for you all!!!
