One Year Out from Surgery!

Apr 24, 2010

Hello folks, it has been a year since my surgery on April 14th, 2010.  By that one year date, I was down 150 pounds.  It seems this year has gone by really fast, maybe because I hit the big 40 in two months.  I see on the board the big question you regret having the surgery?  My only regret is that I did not do it when I turned 30!  I am glad the procedure is so streamlined now, but I know my thirties could have been so much more productive.

So about my progress.  I am doing very well in both mine and my doctor's opinion.  I just had my one year with the surgeon and nut on Thursday, and all of my numbers were spot-on.  I am so happy about this, as I often forget to take all the vitamins I need sometimes.  A few days before the one year surgaversary, I had lost 150 pounds.....yea me!  My doctor took me off my last blood pressure medication, which resulted in an eight pound gain in one week  :(   It is now coming off as my body adjusts.  I would so LOVE to be under two hundred on my birthday in June.

My hernia is getting worse, and the Doc is sending me to see a plastics guy now.  We really wanted to wait until I had lost more weight, but he is not sure I can wait any longer.  I asked if they could give me rock hard abs, lol.  My arms are a sagging mess, and well as the breasts, but I am still healthier in this state.  I have become a clothes whore, and I love new outfits that I can FINALLY wear.

Any particular questions.....just ask!  :)
