I'm post op as of the June 24th, I spent two nights in recovery instead of just one (I'm really sensitive to meds so I was a problem child). I'm feeling pretty good but I'm only able to get in 3 bottles of Water daily (and that's a struggle) every time I drink anything it feels like a stabbing pain in my stomach. I know this is more than likely because it's so new (Wedensday) but that's not making life easier for staying hydrated. I go this coming week to check in.

Other than that I feel great and am so exciting to get the ball rolling here with the weightloss!!

Feel free to friend me and keep in touch!

So I went for my 2 year check up this past week. Was a little nervous because I couldn't remember what I weighed in at last year, and I've put on a little this year after switching up my thyroid meds. Anyways, I'm down 4 lbs and that has me at the 80% loss of excess weight! yay! My dr was very happy with my progress. I think I may start looking into Tummy Tuck :)

Oh and let me know if you have questions about tummy tucks. I had the circumferential lower body lift which is more cutting but I can help you understand recovery etc. I am thrilled with my results! I am wearing a bikini this summer for the first time in 23 years. It's a mom bikini (I have big books and like that business covered really well) but it's a bikini! I got it from bare necessities because they have swim stuff made for girls double d and higher. I got a top in a 32 DD and size small bikini bottoms and it is adorable. I wasn't even shy about wearing it at all.

I never gave my update! My son graduated from High School this spring and we had his grad party followed by the 4th! The past two weeks have been a blur! My 2 year went fantastically well. I already knew about

OOPS! Hate when that happens!!

Anyway, I already had the results of the blood work, so I knew I was high on Iron and low on zinc. We adjusted my Vitamins to reflect these results. My doc wants a full blood panel again in 6 months just to be sure everything is still good, but I don't need to come in again until next year. Weight is GREAT! Found out that I can officially say that I have lost 100% of my excess weight.

Hope all of you enjoyed a great holiday weekend! It is so nice to really live this life! This weekend we went canoeing, hiking, biking, took part in a 75 minute Turbo Kick class, and went for a 3 mile run! 2 years ago I would not have been able to do one of those things, if I had tried I would have been down for days. I LOVE this new life!

Kristi, sorry about the blood work. I have always had bad veins. WLS has improved that too! It's nice not to have to dread getting a blood draw! I feel for you!!

Bloodwork results are on my chart and they all fall within the normal range... YAY I guess if some are lower or higher than they want they will let me know.

When I was overweight, they couldn't find my veins because they were too deep... now she says they roll around because my skin is loose... can't win for loosing i hate needles!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
