my year from surgery update

Thats right its been a year! I went to my yearly check-in appointment. Lets start with the numbers.
Start:383
Surgery date:330
Today:237
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.

Start weight : 383
Surgery date:330
Now: 243
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
Start-383
Surgery-330
Now-255.8
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 inside..now i have a new huffy cruiser bike i can ride to get exercise.

Hi all, its been 7 months. Lets start with numbers.
Start weight-384
Surgery weight-330
Current weight-266.8
Total weight loss-117
Im losing slowly now. It could be im fighting with my food addiction. Ill be full and my head thinks still eat more.or eating sweet things and thinking it wont hurt. When i know in the back of my head that it will hurt me. Today im starting a new thing. I got some plant pebbles and a jar. And every pebble is worth a dollar, and for every day i stick to my food plan i get a pebble.at the end of the month i get to cash in and get a non food reward. Ive been exercising again.doing a leslie samsone walking dvd. I can do 30 mins of it. And i walk outside when its warmer.

6 month update

Yes its been 6 months...had my check up ive lost 114 pounds. And the dr. Said im doing great. Had blood work done. Still low on iron, vitamin d,low protein which i know why i had gotten to where i wasnt watch my drinking . I was drinking all the time and werent not supposed to drink 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after. I now watch it and have tried to up protein. My thyroid and cholesterol was great.

Been doing good really trying to watch the eating. My head hunger is strong. But i fight it.i eat low carb,low cal,low fat like im supposed to.

Been spending the last couple weeks getting over being sick..after gastric bypass it seems harder on you when your sick. After one emergency room visit,one overnight hospital stay for high heart rate and tons of medication later im better.
