I had gastric bypass surgery on 03/31/09. I started really trying to lose weight December 2006. My starting weight was 275 Lbs. I did pretty good for a little over a year. Then I started to slowly gain my weight back.
The day before I went into surgery (03/30/09) my weight was 250 LBS. I am waiting for my post op. check up (04/14/09) to get my new weight. I can tell with my clothing I am losing weight.... Stand by for my new weight so far.
04/13/09 - I weighed in at 233 Lbs. today at my nutri. appointment. Yeah!
04/14/09 - Got my staples out. A few ouchies but not bad at all. Glad to have them gone. It was hard to bend over forward to put shoes on with the staples there.
04/30/09 One Month Post WLS Update: I am feeling better everyday. I have lost 28 lbs. since March 31st (just at a months time). My doctor has given me approval to start working out again but to start out slow. I had been walking outside a bit each day.
I am eating about 4 ounces of food at a sitting.
I was having constipation issues after I started to take a B12 & Iron suppliment. My doctor told me to stop taking these. He had me purchase Mag Citrate or something like that and drink half of the bottle. Within 45 minutes I was cleaned out and lost two pounds. (I weighed myself before and after) Wow!! I feel sooooo much better.
05/18/09 - Feeling great & I checked my weight this morning and I am at 213 lbs. Yeah... getting closer to that 200 mark every day. Constipation is still somewhat of an issue but not as bad as before when taking the iron pill. I have found a new drink I love and it is called SoBe lifewater zero calories and it has vitamins in it. :-)
05/26/09 - Weight this morning was 210 lbs. Getting closer to my 200 lbs. short term goal, long term goal is 142 lbs.. I am feeling very good these days. My only complaint is constipation. It was sooo bad yesterday I had to have someone run to the drug store and ask the pharmacy what I should use. It was like right there but all balled up. I was miserable, sweaty, and shaking. Ended up with a suppository which did work after a half hour. Thank goodness. :-) That was exhausting...
