Well tonight I thought of another one!!! I take a class at night, and it's on the second floor. I will admit I've always taken the elevator because I used to be winded. Well tonight I thought, I in better shape...why not take the stairs. And I did. And I wasn't out of breath!! I have no idea why I waited so long. Maybe just out of habit. I'm going to take the stairs from now on. Let me tell ya, that felt fantastic!!!! Yay.

how is your recovery going how are you feeling? Thanks for asking. It's going well, but slowly. I'm trying to quicken the pace and the surgeon and therapists are telling me not to be so anxious. I'm still on the walker even four weeks out. I thought I'd be done with it but not yet. The pain however, is more and more manageable and for that I'm grateful.

I have another one! About 4 yrs ago or so I was diagnosed with asthma which was because I was overweight. And if I caught a cold or sinus infection, my asthma would kick in.

Well, since I've lost weight, I'm not saying I'm cured, but this is the first time in a very very long time when I had a sinus infection, it doesn't hurt to breathe! My asthma didn't activate! For me this is HUGE! And actually, it was one of the things which pushed me towards getting the band. Being on so many different medications, and not being able to breathe really scared me. I feel almost like a normal sick person! Hahaha. If my head wasn't killing me right now, I'd probably go and Celebrate by running or something.

I'm so happy about this! Anyhoo, thanks for listening. :)

I think I finally had another good one! Today I went down one more size. That's not it, but I still like it. My belly roll is finally smaller than my boobs! Yay!!! I'm liking that one more than the smaller jeans!!!

I only need ONE pillow to prop me up while I sleep..... I still use two (because I'm so used to it) but I don't feel like I'm dying when I only have one.

Went out last night and danced and danced and danced. Never once thought my feet hurt or sit this one out cuz I'm tired. I did sit some out if I was getting hot but there were plenty of people sweating so I know that was just the situation not me being out of shape. Met some new people and plan to go out next weekend too! (Happy dance lol)

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
