hi everyone... long time no check in.

**sighs** bubs is now 5 mts old and an absolute treasure!!! as for my weight... PFFFTTTTTT i was breast feeding for a few months but it wasnt enough. she was crying all the time as she was hungry... the very first night she got a bottle she slept all night.... and i got the first good night sleep in 2 months. the thing is while i was pregnant i was being told to eat a bit more which i have apparently become accustom to and now am totally struggling with. i lost weight for the first 2 weeks after my baby was born and have been mostly gaining since. its not a lot of weight but more than enough to stress the hell out of me and start the whole weight tug of war again. its like my body is use to the sleeve and the intake and now without the demands of a baby, on goes the weight!

i found while i was breast feeding and awake wayyyy more than i should of been, i was actively seeking sweeter foods which i found weird after not wanting any sweets during pregnancy???? i have to try and get back to what i was doing early sleeve. 16 months post op and my weight is like a crash with me in it!!! so upset with myself for not being able to control what the hell is going on. after all this time it seems i am still battleing fat demonds!!! do the ever go away??? what makes us slowly revert back even tho we have come so far.

it seems i mentally may be a fat person all my life. **sighs** even sadder is i have come so far losing over 130 pounds (60kg) but still am nowhere near my goal weight!!

yes my weight loss was excelent through my pregnancy after sleeve and yes i am battleing now from pregnancy issues.... and self control issues.i wonder if having to eat more durring pregnancy has ruined me now or this was just the normal cource of the sleeve maybe/hopefully its just a platto and all will start up again.... who knows!!!

till soon

A big hug for you Ange!!! I haven't been on in forever either, but I just read your post and had to reply. You are such a SUCCESS! 130 pounds gone is AMAZING. You should feel so proud. Yes, I think those old fat demons are still with me too. I felt I got too skinny (was not happy with how I looked) and allowed too many of my old bad food habits to creep back in and easily gained the 5 pounds I wanted to...unfortunately another 5 creeped back on right after the first 5:-( Something that has helped me get back on track (sort of) is joining an in person wls support group and attending pretty regularly (until the last month or so). I'm sure it's difficult with a baby, but maybe there is one in your area.

Okay, this turned a bit longer than I planned:-) I just wanted you to know that you are a success!

Happy Holidays!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
