Wow, has it really been that long since I've blogged on here? I guess it has considering I took a 6 month hiatus when this site started becoming unstable, which is following the same trend again.
Here we are, just a few weeks shy of my 1 year bandaversery. My starting weight in this process was 287lbs. My lowest weight was 207lbs. Holy shit. I had high hopes to be in onederland right now, but bigger things are in store (no, not ME).
It seems our family is growing again. I am currently pregnant with baby #3 who will be making their appearance at the end of July. The decision to TTC wasnt hard. I had this surgery so I could have a healthier "thinner" pregnancy. My husband and I decided in October to start trying for our baby, and low and behold, 3.5 weeks later on his birthday, I got that positive pregnancy test.
Pregnancy and banding so far have been ok. I had to have fluid removed a few weeks ago because my band decided to get a death grip on my stomach. I was vomiting violently all of the time and was on the fast track to malnutrition, so I swalled my pride and I had 1.6 taken out. I feel so much better but the fact that I put 2lbs on in a week scares me. I worked so hard to get it off and it is already coming back THAT FAST. I know the #1 priority now is the health of Bean, so my loss will take a backseat.
I'll be exclusively breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months, so I know I can knock the weight off in no time. I'm gonna be an even sexier mama
So there we have it kids, here's my yearly blog update lol
And I finally update this again!
Well its now February 2010 and I have gone through my 6 month diet, all pre-op testings, and got the approval from my insurance last week. I am scheduled for surgery on the 22nd. I am soooo excited.
Its so funny to look back on the past 6 months, it went so fast but at the same rate went really slow. I can say these next few weeks are going to feel like they are going to take forever too.
I'm just ready. I am sooo ready.:bored:
Tomorrow is my seminar for the lap band. I went to one of these a few years ago, but the surgons office said I had to attend before I can make an appointment with them.
I've been wishing, hoping, and praying that I can get through this process quickly. I would like to be banded by the end of October, but in reality, I think it will be closer to the end of December. I've been doing WW for 5 months, and I can only hope they will accept that as the "failed diet" so I dont have to be on a 6 month supervised one.
I've made a wish list of things I wanna do when I'm thin, and I'll probably post them here. I have a journal but I think people here would understand more since we're all going through the same thing.
Anyway, I'll update this tomorrow on how the seminar went. If anyone reads this wish me luck :cursing:
