I wanted to send an updated picture.  I am now down to 196. I am feeling great!

OK…so I have not posted lately.  Just wanted to update a little.

I have lost 92 pounds total.  Actually it would be 100 based on my highest weight from before surgery.

I feel great.  I do not regret having this surgery at all.  Would do it again in a heartbeat.

I am almost a month out.  I have only lost 20 pounds so far…kindof worries me.  I have lost lots of inches, which eventually has to mean that some more pounds will be coming off too. 

Me and the kids started working out at the rec center for NRH.  It’s cheap and has most of everything that I will need.  I am walking on the treadmill for 20 minutes and riding the bicycle for a mile.  I will increase this as I can.

I have not had any major problems.  I can tolerate most foods.  The protein drinks are not one of them.  Eating early in the morning is also not something that I can do.  After about 9 or 10 I can eat something for breakfast otherwise i will end up in the restroom. 🙁

I will check back in on my month anniversary to let you know if I reached my goal or not.

Wow!  Feeling great this morning.  I thought I would put my stats in so that I could keep a good record. My weights I am suppling both Dr./Hospital weights and home weights separately because of the slight difference.

I am 3 days post-op and feel great.  I got to come home last night and wow….so glad to sleep in my bed.  I am a little tired right now, but I have been up all morning.  Guess, I need to rest a little.
I am so glad I am on the losing side now.  I will also be glad when my stomach incision is not hurting.
I told Jeanette that I was not going to get on the scale until at least Wednesday.  Well, thought I better see where I am at based on my scale, since it reads different that the hospital scale.  So, it shows that I am 330 lbs, which before surgery it showed 340.  That makes me happy.
So far no complications, no nausea….smooth sailing so far.  I won’t hold my breath though.
Thanks Dr. Stewart…YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
