A year and a half later...

Mar 29, 2011

Well, it's been a year and half since my surgery, and I am still doing quite well. I haven't reached my normal BMI, and feel, I probably won't make it there and I am fine with that. I've lost about 105 lbs. I've been loosing inches, but no weight has come off for quite some time. I've reached my size goal. I can currently wear size 12/14 jeans and large shirts in most brands. I am very pleased with my results thus far. I feel great, and have not had very much trouble at all with the surgery. I don't regret doing this at all. Here soon my husband and I are going to try to get pregnant. Since loosing the weight, we pray we have better chances this time around at conceiving. I'm looking forward to the future.

Almost 4 months!

Jan 31, 2010

Well, It's been almost 4 months since surgery and I'm now down 55lbs. I'm doing really good with my food intake, and I'm getting my protein. I need to focus on more exercise. My daughter is done with basketball for the season, so I will be able to focus more on physical fitness. I feel great though! Can't wait to loose more!

Surgery went well

Hello. It's been about a week and a half since I went through my VSG surgery. I weighed in Monday and I have lost 17 lbs so far!!! It unreal. I've been trying to loose this weight for years! It's a total miracle. The first week at home was very rough for me. I was in a lot of pain. I went to my doctor and he prescribe me some different pain meds, and things got better. I'm still sore in the abdomen area. I go for my appointment tomorrow to see when I will be returing to work. I'm hoping for another week off since I'm still hurting some at this point. I work in a factory so I don't want to push things too quickly. I want to be healed properly. Eating food has went really well with me. Everything I've tried to eat has went down fine. I haven't gotten sick yet thank god! I'm getting my protein in and my water intake is really good. I'm so thankful that I have gotten this surgery done. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself.

Surgery is Almost here!!!

Well, I think I'm ready to get on with this surgury. I went to the store and bought a bunch of Jello, broth, and popcicles for the first few days. Shopping for me was actually a little intimidating. I know I'm only going to be eating a little bit at a time, but I feel like I'm going to run out of food or somthing. I know I won't, but it doesn't seem like much ya know? Tomorrow will be my final day of eating BIG. Lucky for me it's the biggest day in the town I live in. We celebrate Oktoberfest. Lots of food. I'm going to be hitting the food booths tomorrow for the last time. I will miss that, but it will be worth it to loose all this weight. I'll miss my beer and pop. I think I can do it. I will have to do it. There's nothing else you can do once you get this done. It's the final moment...better enjoy it!

I got a surgery date!
