I guess it's been quite some time since I did any kind of update here. My one year post op passed in September. I am maintaining at right about 270 pounds. My surgeon says I should be able to lose another 40 lbs before I am done. I guess time will tell. I haven't been as diligent as I could be and I know this.
My protein levels are down. I just cannot eat enough protein. I have to find a drink I can tolerate but so far, they all make me gag. I have a friend who said to try Muscle Milk and she is going to send me a couple so I don't waste money if I don't like it. My B-12 was also low, but I had to stop taking my sublingual a week before my blood test because of a minor surgery I was having to remove a cyst from my left calf. Doubling up on it and it should be fine once again.
Went to Lincoln Park Zoo today and was totally amazed at my stamina. I had such a great time and met one of my dear Sparkfriends there with her family. We've been talking for three years here and to me it was like we've known each other forever!
That's about it for now. I tried to do an update where I usually do them, but must be at the cap for characters there as I coudn't type anything at all. I may have to copy all of that into a blog post and then start over. We'll see how it goes.
