    2 Years Post-Op (It's been a while).

    Thanks everyone! Life is so good right now. My first week back at the gym really kicked my butt, I think this week will be a little easier though (At least I hope). It's going to take a while to get back into a routine.
  2. It's been a while since I've been active on BP since I found myself pregnant at my one year surgiversary (9/8/15), But that doesn't mean I haven't been "Active" in my life!.. This year has brought so much happiness, May 25th of this year we welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world and in June moved from NJ to PA where we bought our first house. At a year out I was down 100lbs, during my pregnancy I gained 28lbs and since have lost the weight and have been maintaining my 100lb loss. Just this past week (3 months postpartum) I started back at the gym and am looking forward to getting back into the groove of things and continuing on with my WLS journey and future success. Hope everyone is doing well!

    Pregnancy Complications.

    @@Miss Mac I've been told I'm not even aloud to go to Plan B. No Intercourse, No Orgasms, No Nipple Stimulation (Which is hard to do since even putting on my shirt stimulates them lol), No walking for long periods of time, No traveling long distances, No lifting anything over 10lbs. Might as well lock myself in a chastity belt and put myself on bed rest at this point..

    Pregnancy Complications.

    @@Miss Mac Thanks for the encouragement!, I'm happy to hear that you & your daughter made out well and your both thriving all these years later I guess I'm not so much worried about the PP as I am the 2vc since that come's with a whole new set of complications to the point where they have me going to a Fetal Cardiologist at the end of this month, Scares the shit out of me just to think about it. Having both together is really stressful and scary.. When I went to the Ob's tonight she pretty much scolded me for having intercourse with PP, When I went for the Anatomy scan where they told me I had it that was it..I was never told I couldn't do certain thing's, they didn't send me home with a book or anything. So that's just grand.
  5. I was officially a year out from VSG when I found out I was 4 weeks pregnant with my third back in September and 100lbs down. My pregnancy starting weight was 155 and I'm now standing at 165 and 22 weeks pregnant. With my first pregnancy (Pre-vsg) I was around 190 and ballooned up to 235 by the end when she was born at 35 weeks due to high blood pressure and preeclampsia, I dealt with those issues throughout the whole pregnancy. With the second I was 250lbs, High blood pressure and lost the baby at 12 weeks. Going into this one being the lowest weight I've ever been and feeling great I just automatically assumed this would be a breeze and pregnancy would be fun this time around. I'll be honest it pretty much has been exactly how I envisioned it (A delight) up until the beginning of this month when I went for my 20 week anatomy scan where I found out I have Placenta Prevaria and also a 2-vessled cord (most have 3) so there's possible complications to both and it has me feeling really bummed out about myself and my body. I don't understand how I could lose 100lbs, be the healthiest I've ever been and still my body is failing me in an area where so many other people succeed (Some without even trying). So I guess I'm really just here to vent and looking for support of some sort as I don't really know how to process my feeling's right now and it's hard to not hate my body with this current situation I've been handed. We tried for so long to have another baby after the loss and it took 3 years going through PCOS and Dr's, Finally breaking down and having surgery, Loosing 100lbs and I just feel conflicted all of a sudden like maybe I'm just not meant to have another, My body obviously can't deal with it.
  6. Sleeved 9/8/14 with a starting weight of 255, I wasn't made to do a pre-op diet so that's where I was the day of surgery. I'm 6 day from one year out and currently sitting at 156lbs, 1lb away from 100lbs lost. This has been an amazing journey and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat, If I could sooner..
  7. @@tami1970 Thank You. I'm sure you'll do great and get to your goal!
  8. This time last summer I was sitting at the beach with my family and friends discussing the fears/doubts/hopes that we all felt about my decision to undergo VSG that coming September. I could never had imagined then what a wild ride id thrust myself upon and where id be now. As my one year anniversary approaches (9-8-14) I think of how far I've come as a person, The self-esteem I feel now and the power within myself that I never knew I had is overwhelming. This time last year I had a few goals for myself going into surgery... 1. Don't Die-- I assure you now I didn't! 2. Don't Cheat, Not even once!--I'm human, and somehow then I guess I thought I'd come out perfect after surgery didn't happen. 3. Get To Your Goal Weight.-- My goal weight at the time was 170 and I thought that was good enough as I didn't have any high hopes for myself. As of today I have lost 96lbs from the 255lb uncomfortable person I was to 159lb person who is comfortable with herself and willing to do more in life, Who puts herself out there and is thriving. It's Amazing to me that I could ever be where I am. And like a lot of others out there, I wish I had given myself this gift sooner!

    Feeling Heart broken and defeated

    From what I understand the lower your BMI the slower your going to lose. Currently I am 174lbs (8Months out and down 81lbs) but I'm taking in 1000-1100Cal a day and burning anywhere from 800-1000 4days a week at the Gym and I've been seeing a consistent weight loss of 5-6lbs a month since 4months out.

    I'm also 8 months out, I think I recall seeing you on the forums early on when I was here pre-op. I'm sad to hear that you think you are a failure or have given up, I've also been a slow loser compared to some (80lbs down) but you have to keep going!..Everyday is a struggle to not eat what we want, to not over eat, to go to the gym, to fight for our lives and the body we want. But it's a something worth fighting for! I have day's where I fail, there's day's where I skip the gym, eat too much and you know what I do? GET UP AND TRY AGAIN! Keep your head up and get back to basics. Believe in yourself, You got this
