MAY 17, 2010: SURGERY DATE 5/20/09. WOW CANT NOT BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN ALMOST A YEAR, the best decision I have made FOR MYSELF! Wish I would have started this all sooner, but timing is everything and this was the right time for me!!!

September 2008 I started my physical and my journey to possibly having RNY, aka: GBS (Gastric Bypass Surgery). I am going one step at a time. So far it is the right thing for me and I am so excited. I want to become healthy and happy for years to come for myself, my family and my friends! I look forward to sharing this journey with whomever is reading but mostly doing this to motivate myself.

IT IS MAY 11, 2009
Long journey so far but all in all it went quickly, it is just not easy. Even with this I know it will not be easy but at least it will (thinking positive) be results worth working for! I am so excited for my surgery on 5/20/09 yet can't lie, NERVOUS at the same time. I think it is a good nervous. But I will just be glad when I am "asleep" and can't be nervous anymore because when I wake up there is no going back and it is a new and wonderful life for me (yes I know it is not easy at first) and I am sure I will go through the motions and wonder why but I pray like most all others I will be saying "I WOULDNT CHANGE MY DECISION!"

NOW DECEMBER 2009:
I AM SAYING I WILL AND WOULD NEVER CHANGE THE DECISIONS I HAVE MADE! I am a little over 7 months out and have gone from a whopping 340ish pounds to so far about 215 pounds, I started at a Size 26 pushing a 28 and now in to most 14s and almost all 16s, some are getting baggy. SO GETTING TO A 12, but that will be hard because I have SO MUCH LOOSE SKIN it is hard to ignore it and it doesnt disappear, I am hoping with more exercise and prayers my body will adjust, I PREFER not to go through another surgery but pretty much know that is inevitable in this situation, meaning getting a breast reduction or lower skin removal surgery. I WON'T BE DOING IT for "no reason" the loose skin is very uncomfortable and very itchy etc....so the looks part is the benefit but even told by some harder and more painful and issues than the WLS was, I am actually more scared or nervous to think of having some kind of reconstructive surgery (skin removal) in the future. I understand that usually occurs a year and a half or more out to make sure you are at goal but will just cross one bridge at a time. I can't afford it now anyway (don't think I ever could) so just have to find other ways to deal with this. I JUST KEEP REMEMBER that over 100 lbs was more uncomfortable than all this loose skin!!! Well will add more later but thought I was due to add to my JOURNEY. If anyone has questions or wants to chat, email me!!!

    Hey, thank you for stopping by my page! I'm so sorry it took so long for me to reply, my mom had surgery and I'm planning a wedding... you know how it goes! LOL!

    Right now I am comfortable in a 16, but could probably fit into 14's as well at this point... they would just be really tight! LOL So hopefully those 14's will fit real soon, so I can get into those 12's! :D I've made it my goal to work out at least 5 days a week. It's working, because today I broke 200!! I'm so excited! :D

    By the way, I hit my first plateau since surgery in April/May. Totally sucked. I was at 209 FOREVER! But now the scale is moving again. YAY! I do have to work harder for the losses now, they don't come as easily as they used to! LOL

    Anyway, I wanted to come by and say hi, and if you need anything, let me know, ok?

    Have a great day!!
