So as the title states I became pregnant directly after my sleeve operation due to birth control failure. I just delived an healthy baby girl ( thank goodness)9 mos and 1 week post VSG. I took a break from all boards during my pregnancy as I needed to focus on having a healthy pregnancy vs weightloss.

I have lost 75lbs thus far and have about 30lbs to goal. I am so ready to focus on my goal and get back on track. Although I lost weight all thru my pregnancy I was encouraged to have a higher carb intake and now find myself craving them everyday. I am thinking a few days of shakes may help me detox these carbs and get focus on the high protien low carb diet my body needs to make it to goal! Looking forward to getting to know some other folks on this journey.

Thank you. I am anxious to get back on track and implement some exercise as soon as I am cleared. I need to get out of the habit of grazing back to meals and axe the carbs!

Oh and 75% Cacao chocolate Bars from Lindt. [emoji4] They are VERY low sugar and lowish carb in moderation and have a lot of magnesium. [emoji4] Combine with 10g of almonds and maybe a couple of frozen blueberries??? DAYUM hold me. I need a moment! [emoji3]
Just 1 square satisfies any desire for rich sugary dessert! Especially with its little friends: almonds and frozen blueberries. [emoji4]
Where can I find the Lindt chocolate bars?

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
