Well, I'm now officially (according to the Bariatric Clinic that I saw 2 days ago) 106 lbs lighter at 240. The doc said my ideal weight should be around 150 lbs. And this time, I'm gonna do it if it kills me!! I just wish my mom could see me know. I'm thinner, can do a lot more things like shopping with the hubs and walking through stores WITHOUT my seat walker. In fact, I'm selling it. So if you or someone you know needs a walker, I've got a nice one. It's burgandy in color and a basket up front to hold your things. It is a nice walker.
OK....Let me show you something astonishing.....
BEFORE THE SURGERY, topping out a close to 356 lbs. I really hate this picture, but it's the best way to do a comparison. So promise you won't laugh too hard!! Isn't that a horrible picture? And needless to say, I couldn't breath, walk stops, and every joint in my body screamed pain.
Here I am AFTER THE SURGERY, now weighing 240 on the bariatric scale. The doctor says I'm doing very well....they don't usually get results this quick and I would fall into the gastric bypass category!! I think I set a new record for the gastric sleeve (where they take 80% of your stomach and leave the intestine alone). Cool!!! I just took this picture today. Remember that sailor's shirt I put on my blog a year ago, gazing and hoping I could wear it before I died!!!
I'M BACK!!! After the six month went, I stared to feel better. I guess my "new" stomach was getting used to handle food again and I've been taking it really slow. My hubby & I went out for breakfast the other day and I had eggs. Oh, man, those made me sick!!! And I can't have bread until I've reached my goal rate. She said I could actually regain the weight and I surely don't need that!!!
Santa Clause has already left me a gift. It's the new Kindle Fire with color. I cannot tell you how much I love it. I can surf the web, listen to music and read books and magazines. It's a godsend....I can check my email more frequently and keep up with the blog now. Maybe Santa will come back and give me a gift card for the Amazon Store. I can't seem to get all my Janet Evanovich's onto one device....and I tried everything!! I've got 5 Evanovich's on the Kindle Fire and the rest on my Kindle 3. Bummer!! So I need to buy them again at the Kindle store, very slowly as we don't have much money to through around. But as soon as I get all the Evanovich's on the Kindle Fire, I'm putting my old one up for sale. It still works fantastic!!
Alrighty, I've gotta stop here. It was really nice to post another blog. I missed it and seeing yours, too. Now that will change!! Hope you all have a great week!!
