month 16 after rny gastric bypass

Thats right month 16 , lets start with numbers.
Surgery date:330
Loss so far 160 pounds!
I really believe . That doctors dont get weight loss surgery patients enough psychiatric care. They should really make sure we have gotten to the root of why we are over weight! What causes us to eat the way we do,that got us so obese. And for us to understand and be prepared that the surgery doesnt cure that need to eat. What ever you reason be. i wish now i could have brain surgery to fix my brain!  Fix the head hunger,the eating when bored,sad,lonely,upset hell even eating when happy. Every emotion can be a reason to eat sometimes. Ok let me get off my soap box.
Thanks giving went pretty good. I ate turkey and a small portion of sweet potato with marshmallow on top. Well sweet potatos are my favorite. No one else wanted any so i shouldnt have even bought them. Lesson learned! Tomorrow i start with a new plan! Stay on plan for a full month and ill treat myself to a kindle. On plan two months another treat.

month 14-15

Starting with numbers
Total loss:158 pounds
These last couple months have been good. I been sticking to plan only had a few mishaps of eating off plan. I have a dr. Appt this month on the 20th to see if my hital hernia gets fixed. If thats what been causing my pain i hope she fixes it! Today i started the 5 day pouch test, if you want to know more google it. It helps a wls patient get rid of carbohydrate and sugar cravings. Even supposed to shrink your pouch. Im on day one full liquids. Going easy so far. Other then head hunger. Whats everyone plans for thanksgiving? I plan on staying on plan except i might have small portion of foods i love. Its only once a year. Ive really have lost alot. Im able to fit a large shirt and 18w in pants. I love being able to buy off regular rack! Thift stores are more fun now.

my year from surgery update

Thats right its been a year! I went to my yearly check-in appointment. Lets start with the numbers.
Surgery date:330
Thats a loss of 146 pounds! 4 pounds away from losing 150 pounds! My visit went good they weighed me and drew blood. A few weeks later the blood test came back all good except need to take vitamin d 1000 iu. I also have been having pain right at bottom of my breast bone. At first i thought it was a heart attack. It wasnt it is my stomach. I think its happening when i eat certain foods and eating to fast. I havent lost alot lately because my eating has been slipping, ive been letting foods im not allowed to eat back in. Ive been working hard to stop the bad habits. And ive gotten back to exercise i walk anywhere from 2-4 miles a day. I finally moved into a new apartment complex that has a walking trail in front of it. Its a good mile each way.

Thats a loss of 140 pounds! Im glad, im so close to 150 lost. My yearly doctor appointment is coming up on August 11 th. Im wanting to be at that 150 pounds lost mark. So ten pounds. Im doing pretty good except ive been having strong pain right below my breast bone( stomach area) for a couple weeks. And when it hurts i have bad nausea. So my doctor did a endoscope and found a hernia. Then they did a upper gi, the test where you drink contrast stuff and they take xrays after you drink it. Still waiting for results of that test. Its only been a day but i hate waiting. I kinda havent been exercising its exteremly hot here in oklahoma! So i have to find some sort of exercise to do inside. Ive had a small non scale victory i fit into a size 20w pants down from a size 36w. And can wear a xl to l shirt.

9 months update

Lets start with the numbers
Total lost 128 pounds
Ive been good. Really been fighting with the mental aspect of weight loss. I try so hard to stick to the plan my doctor has set forth. But its hard for me i always have anxiety over the fact that i think im missing something. It doesnt help having a boyfriend that can eat what ever he wants in front of me. He offers me food and im thinking no in my head, but my mouth says yes. I eat it and feels bad afterwards. Ive been looking into counseling for my eating issues. I think it might be beneficial for me. Ive been trying to keep up with the exercise. Walking outside or walking dvd i have a new huffy cruiser bike i can ride to get exercise.
