It's been 2 years today!! Life is good :)

Nov 03, 2010

Here it is 11/3/2010 my 2 year surgiversary!!
It has been quite the journey and I would do it all again in a minute!  Iam maintaining my weight for the last several months and am happy with where I am at.  Wish I could have boob surgery but maybe someday as it will be very expensive.  Had my 2 year checkup with surgeon a couple days ago and my labs were all perfect in fact my doctor said he is jealous that my cholesterol etc was better than his and my BMI is better than his.  Going through my 2nd divorce which has been painful, he left me the beginning of July 2010 shortly after recovering from panniculectomy and moved in with a 30 year old with 4 kids.  They have since split, but that is what he deserves.  I think my weight loss is the reason we split but that is my own opinion.  I started seeing a therapist a in October which has been very helpful.  I just started seeing a new guy a few weeks ago too, and so far he is just wonderful and treats me right and with respect.  Will post some new pictures shortly to update everyone. 

Just had my panniculectomy

Apr 22, 2010

Went in Monday April 19th for my panniculectomy and everything went well.  My surgeon said I will be really pleased with the outcome, he got everything tight and moved the belly button about 4 inches up.  Said he took 3 lbs of skin off.  Was supposed to be able to go home the next day but I ended up passing out the first night while on the toilet and had no pulse etc so they called a code blue and then took some blood and found out I needed a 2 unit transfusion.  So I got that and then went home wednesday afternoon.  I can walk around a bit just when standing I get pretty sore. I will go see the surgeon tomorrow afternoon and see if any of the drains can come out. I will take more pics later on.

One year gone and feeling so good! Down 140 lbs.

Nov 03, 2009

I can hardly believe it a whole year gone by.....It's been an awesome journey that I would of never accomplished if it wasn't for my gastric bypass.  I am feeling so awesome now, so much energy and zest for life.  I am so GLAD I did this!  I got married 5 months ago, and am so happy!  I am currently at home recovering from abdominal hernia repair that I have had for quite some time but they didn't want to fix it untill I lost the weight.  Had it fixed Oct 23rd and going back to work Thursday.  Next is a panniculectomy in about 6 months. Doctor says I have about 20 lbs till I am my ideal weight but I am happy now except for the extra skin, so we will see what happens.  Wearing a size 10 or 12 and feeling GREAT! Down today a total of 140 lbs!

4 months out

I am 4 months out now and feeling fantastic!  Down 90 lbs from my highest weight.
Been exercising on a more consistant basis which always makes me feel better.  My next mini goal is 100 lbs and then my next goal is to be in wonderland by May 15th, I can do it! Love this website for encouragement and ideas.
