I've missed you all. This is our month!!!

I can't believe it's been a year!!! It's been great having you all as encouragement and support! Everyone has done a great job! Now we have to work towards the next year. I'm a Sept 12th girl!!

I started out at 241 and now at 123!!! God I hope I can maintain this!

That's my biggest fear. So many people say ow proud they are of me, I tell them this was the easy part and they can be proud when I'm this weight next year!

Wow u too have done great! I am slightly jealous haha...i started at 280 and im only at 192...blah..only ten pounds in 4 months.

Oh well better that then gaining. I did want to be at 100 by my year mark which is on 9/5.

New goal is to be under 190 at my year visit with the surgeon on the 23rd.

I have started looking into plastics..anyone else? I want my boobs and stomach...maybe thighs but i dunno if i want to go through that pain!

I want it "all done baby! ". But the wallet has other ideas. I have to have a hernia repaired eventually so hopefully can have that and a Tummy Tuck at the same time!

Dear September Sleevers:

I feel like I'm here for a confession..lol. To recap, (lol), I was sleeved on Sept. 17, 2012. I started at 245lbs. and am down to 178lbs....from a size 16/18 to a size 8/10/12 (depending on the pants) lol. So, I am currently home post-op from a gallbladder removal surgery due to gallstones. Apparently, gallstones are a common side effect for people that lose a lot of weight rapidly. =( .. The excruciating pain began a little over two months ago. It came like spells taking over my upper abdomen and upper back and making it really hard for me to breathe in addition to elevating my body temperature, getting sweaty and nauseous. =( So, finally after 2 hospital visits and no answers and an outpatient procedure of removing an ovarian cyst (that doctors thought was causing the pain), on my 3rd hospital ER visit, an ultrasound was conducted and it revealed gallstones. =( So, other than being sore, I'm looking forward to not havin anymore ridiculously unnecessary pain. ......Lol. Yeaaaa riiiigght, I still have this sleeve. A blessing and a curse. ...I have been fluctuating between 175lbs and 183lbs for the past 3 months or so. ...THIS ISH IS EFFIN DIFFICULT.

Here's my laundry list of complaints:

1. I love food but food doesn't love me.

2. I get full ridiculously quick when I sit down to have a meal, but somehow Snacks go down very easily.

3. I can start eating a meal....get full, nauseous, unable to breathe regularly....but then wait 10-20 minutes and am able to get the rest down little by little, including bread. Smh. (By the way, "little-by-little" doesn't mean an hour, it's more like an additional 10-20 minutes. ....makes you wonder.

4. Having to explain to people why I eat so little when I'm clearly still overweight. Lol.

5. Not liking to exercise... No, scratch that, hating exercise at times, because while my body has changed, my mind is still that of a cheese, chocolate, bread, bacon and candy loving chubby kid at mind and heart. Lol.

What the hell am I to do?...

The OR nurse at my last gallbladder removal procedure asked me if I was happy with my sleeve... I answered, sometimes.

=/

There is nothing wrong with ONLY losing 53 lbs!! Thats 53 lbs you didnt lose before the surgery. I just think you need to figure out what works for you...i went four months this year without losing a pound and it took me awhile to get my head back in the game and slowly its coming off.

Also does the 53 lbs include pre-op loss or is that only 53 since the surgery? I still think youve done great :)

Sleeved Sept 19.....down 151 lbs from surgery and 47 more for pre-op that started in June 2012.

Some days I am feeing smaller and sometimes I catch glimpse of reflection and see a fat girl still. I am at 170 this morning and still have 40 more to lose. Wearing size 10 clothes, and am glad I found some really cute clothes at the thrift stores.
