Having a revision

Sep 06, 2011

Ok so I finally had enough of all the weight gain and yo-yo "dieting" once again.  I went and saw Dr. J Steven Scott and will be having a revision on October 18.  I'm a little aggravated I have to wait so long but just keep praying the time goes by fast. 

Weight gain

It's been over 5 years since I have had my surgery.  I did well for the first 3 years.  After that, I went back to the little comforts in life and started drinking soda again. Then from there was the sweet stuff.  I turned to comfort foods and now am back to almost where I was when I started.  I am tired of feeling bloated and no energy.  I am now turning to OH once again for the help and support I need to get this weight off again.  My chest hurts all the time, my back and feet are forever hurting.  I am so tired of feeling horrible and no self confidence.  I am setting a small goal of 20 pounds by Thanksgiving.  I hope I can do it!

So many changes

Apr 08, 2008

There have been so many changes in my life since my surgery.  Mostly for the best.  I finally left the abusive relationship I was in after 7 years.  I felt great enough about myself to stand up and stop taking it.   I have moved into a new home, met a wonderful man and have gotten married.  It's amazing to look back at the last 3 years of my life and see how much things can change in such a small amount of time.  

I have gained approximately 40 pounds in the last year and have finally had enough.  I didn't have this life saving surgery to become a failure.  I have joined back at the gym and hired a trainer.  I also joined a soccer team and have committed to eating right.  I hope that in the near future I can get this 40 pounds off and more.  I never did meet my expected goal weight and now with my life stable once again, I am hoping to do just that.

Lost all my old posts

When I transferred over all my information to my new profile, I lost it.  Not sure what happened but it's all gone.  So I have to start all over.

I started my journey in June 2004.  I had finally had enough of being obese and not being able to breathe.  I had very severe asthma.  I was 313 lbs at 5'2".  I was misrable.  No matter what I did to loose weight, it didn't work. 

In December of '04, I was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks with gallbladder problems.  The doctors let me go home for Christmas and then right back in to have it taken out.  That was when I got really serious about GBS.  I started looking into it and found a surgeon that would take my insuracne.  I knew I was killing myself and if I didn't have this surgery, I wasn't going to live a long and healthy life.

I had my surgery June 17, 2005.  It was the best thing I have ever done for myself.  I am now 173 lbs and feeling pretty good.  

I am struggling with emotional eating again and know that I have got to gain control once again to get to my goal weight.  Carbs have been the "devil" for the past couple months.  As of today, I have started making myself accountable for me.  I have to rid my body of the carbs and get back on track with high protein and lots of exercise.
