[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]Hi everyone!!![/size][/b][/font]


[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]Well I have been overweight since I was a teen and had my first son.... Then over the years I simply just packed on the pounds through depression, abuse, stress who knows what all simply lead to food. I met my husband in August 2009 and we got married in 2010 and conceived my 2nd son right away (9 years in between my boys). I was sick with my gallbladder and pancreatitis throughout my pregnancy and hospitalized several times and ended up losing a great deal of weight throughout my pregnancy and 6 weeks after totaling 60lbs, 30 lbs during my pregnancy and 30 lbs in the 6 weeks after. Even though still overweight I was feeling and looked great! However I quickly started putting the weight back on this last year and just cant do it anymore so I want to start this forever life changing process to becoming healthy for myself, my wonderful husband, and my two amazing boys :) I plan to continually update whats going on with me and my process below :) Here's to a new begining!!![/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]I saw my PCP in Victorville, CA on May 31, 2012 and it took about a week and I got a call from Kaiser to set up Orientation. [/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]June 26, 2012[/u][/color] - Received a call from kaiser stating that the class for July 5th wasn't full enough so they had to reschedule me for July 17, 2012 @ 6:30pm at Kaiser in Fontana, CA.[/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]July 17, 2012 [/u][/color]- 1st Options class to begin @ 6:30pm. First class went good was basically an introduction to what you have to look forward to over the next couple weeks. I was told we would be doing labs after class 2 and the will be meeting with the Bariatrician class 3 once labs have been done. Was told to go out and buy and start taking the following vitamins.[/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]-Multivitamin & Mineral[/size][/b][/font]
[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]-Vitamin B12[/size][/b][/font]
[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]-Vitamin B1[/size][/b][/font]
[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5]-Calcium plus Vitamin D3[/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]July 24, 2012[/u][/color] - 2nd Options Class.. DOWN 4lbs for the first week of classes.... Got the go ahead to go and do labs, EKG, and Chest X-ray (Be sure to check your copays on these because I wasnt expecting the cost when I went in) Did EKG & Chest X-Ray before class on 7/24 and am planning to do labs on saturday morning 7/28 because you have to fast for 12 hours. I also received a call stating I had to schedule an appointment with the bariatrician because they no longer are doing it during class 3 and a separate appointment was necessary... They want all labs and tests done before this appointment which is scheduled for 8/3/2012.[/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]July 25, 2012 [/u][/color]- Called to schedule an appointment to have the copper IUD placed because I cannot take hormone birth control and cannot take a chance getting pregnant during the first 18 months. I was told i had to take a 2 hour class on the IUD which is scheduled for 8/17/2012 @ 2:00pm.[/size][/b][/font]


[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]July 31, 2012 [/u][/color]- 3rd Options Class Down another 2lbs this week :) This class was all about learning reason of why we eat.. such as comfort, stress, because we are happy, and gatherings etc. The class also gave us ideas to replace the stress and comfort eating with being externally mindful, internally mindful, breathing techniques, and progressive muscle relaxtion. Finding a hobby, or using thing such as exercise to replace the comfort of food.[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]


[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]August 3, 2012 [/u][/color]- Today I met with Dr. Turner to review labs etc. I have high iron by over 100 so i had to stop taking my multivitamin and get the one for women over 50 with no iron and retest in a few weeks and if its still high then something is wrong and i have to do some more testing. She did say that one of the things it could be is a swelling disorder which is very possible because i am very swollen by the end of the day in my hands, feet, ankles etc. so a little worried about that but overall the appointment went pretty good although it has been a rough week so far actually VERY rough week so far... My husbands grandfather passed away and daycare overcharged me overdrawing my account, my timing belt went out in my car and to top it off I got a new nail polish and I go to use it and there is NO BRUSH!!!! really?? the luch i swear!! :).. Luckily my wonderful husband is such a great fixer so it didnt cost an arm and a leg to fix my car and it got fixed right away and grampas service will be on the 13th. I think i was being tested with handling stress the right way as was taught in the previous weeks class and, i didnt do so good kinda ate bad the last couple days with family over meeting about whats next with grandpa....... Well will update you all on tuesday...[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive][b][size=5][color=#800080][u]August 7, 2012 [/u][/color]- Class 4 gained a few lbs back :( so thats not good definately due to my long stressful week..... Starting low carb today so that should help with my weight starting to come off. I really want to meet the 10% even though its not absolutely mandatory it states its "recommended" in southern california kaiser but they say ultimately its up to the surgeon... so the surgeon could say you haven't lost enough and postpone the surgery and i would rather be ready to go and on my way to being healthy, so weight loss here i come :)........ This weeks class was introducing better eating habbits such as good things to eat, how much to eat, what calories you should be at, and to eat slow due to it taking 20 minutes for a signal to get to the brain saying your full. They also gave a couple sample meal ideas and listed a bunch of food with portions and calories so you can compare or know what you should be eating of that food. See you next week![/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

Today I was down 6.5lbs for the week AWESOME!!! This week was a little better than last week so not tooooo much stress...Had grampas service yesterday and that went well :). This weeks class was all about fitness... Being sure that you start somewhere even if its just as little as 10 minutes a day just to be sure and start somewhere.... My plan is to start little to at least get myself in the routine... I know for me if i say oh i need to ride the exercise bike for 10 that doesnt seem like a lot and i can do it and once im doing it i can go a little longer cause i already got into it so thats my plan... i want to do five days a week and just tell myself to start with 10 minutes and go from there :) See you all next week :)[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

The one i attended i didnt really enjoy not as informative and supportive as i expected it to be.... So i know that the place i went to in san bernardino, ca i wont be going to again, I wanted to go to one closer to home but the days they did the support group were the same days as my options classes so i couldnt do those so post op i plan to go to the ones closer to home in the HD :)[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

I think the main thing i need to work on is working out even if its for just a little bit 5 days a week.... Im excited things are getting closer to happening and cant wait to be a skinny minnie :)[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

I gained a couple lbs :/ blah i think its ovualtion and i ate a piece of cheescake yesterday so probably retianing water from all the carbs :(....... I asked the instructor about the timeframe and she said probably early next year :/ which sucks... She was one of the 2 psychiatrists for the fontana location and she said she is already booked for appointments for september and october and she doesnt know how november looks yet so the chances are that a psych eval after classes arent gonna happen quickly which sucks because it is required before anything else happens..... Makes me wonder if i can just stick to everything and lose a bunch before i would even get there and not need surgery at all?????? maybe thats just crazy thinking..... Guess we will see where i end up at the end of all this.... another 5-6 months seems like an eternity, that would be almost a year from the time i got the referral to go to options........ :( anyway thats where im at, til next weeks update[/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

But i think im coming to my senses and feel better and back to being secure in my decision to do this.... I actually talked to a couple of the people in the options class with me and they said they have been feeling the same so i guess im not alone on this...... This weeks class was with one of the psychiatrists that we could meet with before surgery for our mandatory psych eval.....The class basically just let us know what to expect in that eval and things to watch for that could be our triggers for over eating and things like that. I asked her about how long it would take for a psych eval and she said shes seeing people that have just graduated which was nice to hear since before i heard they were booked sept and october and not sure about november and our surgeries wouldnt be til next year.... it just gave me a little light at the end of this long tunnel........ Im just tired of being "Fat" :/ [/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

Basically the last class the reminded you of some things and let you ask any unanswered questions you had and let you know what the process is from here. Some of the people in my class already had there bariatrician appointment and i was a little sad considering i had finished everything and never missed a class.... But all in its time i guess :) but im excited to move on to the next couple appointments and who knows maybe they will come sooner than expected and surgery will happen this year rather than what i was previously told about it being next year :) [/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font][/size][/b][/font]

[b][font=comic sans ms, cursive][size=4][color=#800080][u]December 19, 2012 [/u][/color]- Received a call from the hub to schedule my preop for January 8th :) hurry up January 8th! A little nervous about telling my work that i have to take off work since i just took off a week for my miscarriage hoping it works out ok :/[/size][/font][/b]

[size=5][color=#800080][u]January 8, 2013 [/u][/color]- Met with my surgeon Dr Chin at the Kaiser Redlands CA office... He said all looked good and scheduled me for surgery in two weeks on January 24th. I was NOT expecting so soon so im a little nervous but excited at the same time.... So here goes to preparing for the hospital and for when i get home... Luckily im so very blessed that my sister is going to come down from northern California to take care of me over the weekend since my surgery is on a Thursday .. Then my husband will be home with me for Monday and Tuesday and hoping ill be all good by then to just be home :)... the doctor put me on a 2 week 1200 calorie diet before surgery and the liquids only the day before surgery. Cant Believe its so soon :)[/size]

[size=5][size=5][color=#800080][u]January 15, 2013 - [/u][/color][size=4]Just a feeling update.... well as surgery is just 10 days away i find myself feeling a little down.... and feeling like i should eat eat eat.... although i dont really want to and feel guilty if i eat things i shouldnt.... I guess its the fear of the "What if i cant eat it again?" Food tastes so yummy and carbs are so yummy.... but at the end of it all i know im doing the right thing and that it will all be worth it in the end :)[/size][/size][/size]

[size=5][size=5][color=#800080][u]January 23, 2013 - [/u][/color] Today is the day before surgery... I have liquid only diet today and no liquids by mouth after midnight tonight and have to arrive at the hospital at 6:30am...... It wasnt so bad... but did feel like i should have done one last meal trip at some point for my two week diet lol[/size][/size]


[size=5][size=5][color=#800080][u]January 24,25,26, 2013 - [/u] [/color]Surgery Day!!! Well surgery day is here... I arrived at the hospital and checked in and made my necessary payment that was required... I went up to the preop floor and they weighed me in at 225. I got my IV going and they gave me a blood thinner shot in my stomach. My husband had to go take the baby to daycare so he wasnt there but arrived around 9:45... surgery was supposed to be at 10 but they didnt take me til around 1 or so..... i got asked a million questions over and over by a bazillion different people and then i was taken to surgery and then i just remember waking up in my room... then going right back out... the rest of that first day i dont really know what was going on lol..... but once i was aware i was very nauseated and hurting thinking what the heck did i do? and kinda regretting getting it..... i got up and walked and all was good there but i couldnt get liquids in and i was very nauseated and threw up so they kept me a second day... the second day i could get some liquids in and i was ok to go home... still thinking what the heck did i do to myself. I got home saturday evening and ill update you on another day from there.[/size][/size]

[size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][color=#800080][u]February 04, 2013 - [/u] [/color]Well the last week has definately been up and down... I finally stopped hurting for the most part just a little sore in the tummy still but its coming along. For some reason I carry the fear of developing a leak but i guess thats normal.... I once ate a cheezit and then regretted it and freaked myself out over it really wasnt worth the worry to eat it.... I dont have hunger but i want foods... super bowl the boys had nachos and chips and salsa i sooo wanted chips and salsa but i did really well and didnt..... I usually will eat broccoli cheese soup without broccoli chunks once a day around lunch time and its only about 2 oz that i can hold in my stomach and ill have a protein shake for breakfast and dinner and try to get as much liquid in as possible the rest of the day. Today is my first day back at work and i am tired but so far its okay... i almost wanted to continue to be off til at least the 14th which is when my doctor has me off til but i think i may be ok... although the constant up and down is kinda rough getting copies done etc...... ive lost 10lbs so far since surgery which is a total of 22lbs between preop and post op :)[/size][/size][/size][/size]

[size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][size=5][color=#800080][u]March 04, 2013 - [/u][/color]Well I hit my first month goal of 20lbs so that was pretty exciting... i feel normal just not able to eat a lot at a time..... at 5 weeks out im down a total of 32 lbs :) and my goal this month is to hit another 10lbs down.... i noticed if i eat carbs ill gain a lb or two so i tend to stay away from them...... I work out everyday now even if its just for 20-30minutes. Looking foward to wearing my bikini this summer :)[/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size]
