I'm on the Road to Onederland!! Who's with me?



Recommended Posts

Good day!

I?m posting this in the ?success? forum because that?s exactly what I intend to do. BE A SUCCESS!

There are many stops along the way of success and for me; my biggest successful dream is to finally be back in onederland. Yes, even more than hitting my target weight. I have not seen a one in front of my weight since June of 1992. *WOW* ?that is such a long time ago!

I?m just going to give a brief history here. I used to be thin all through my high-school days, and I maintained my weight in an unhealthy manner of almost near starvation and incredible lengthy workouts.

I got married right at 21 years old and the weight piled on as I laxed a lot on my physical upkeep.

One day at the Dr.?s office I was informed that my blood pressure has been too high too many times, and was officially diagnosed with hypertension. I was given many medications and was required to see my PCP monthly until it was controlled. She also forced me on the scale, because I was always able to talk myself out of it before.

I weight? 315 LBS!!! OMG!!! Here?s the kicker. I?d been on a diet for about a month and lost a whole clothing size, which were size 28W bottoms and 3X tops. I was in 26W and still 3X tops at the time of my first official weigh-in. So I usually guesstimate my top weight at about 330 Lbs.

Well the whole hypertension thing scared me enough to trek on to diet harder. I ended up getting less than 300 Lbs to about 290. However I kept bouncing up and down from that ten pounds. It had been a year doing this when I finally decided I needed more help as I still had quite a bit to lose.

Long story short, I had WLS ? specifically the Lap-Band and was able to get myself down to 227.

I was so close to onederland, I could see it from the distance! I could smell it, it was so near!

Then problems arised and here I am today. Back up to the 280?s. I?m back to around the same weight I was at surgery. No worries though, I?m going to get a second chance and I absolutely will make this work!

So? ONEDERLAND HERE I COME!!

Anyone want to go along for the ride??? :confused1:

I also have a long way to go, but onederland is a huge thing for me as well. I haven't seen a 1 before my weight since 1998, when I was a junior in high school! I have a long way to go still, but that's probably what I look forward to most is having my weight start with a 1.

We are about the same as far as how much we need to lose, so I say you and I be each others personal cheerleader :001_smile:

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
