Almost 3 Months out and 70lbs gone :)

Saturday, October 08, 2011

Well it's definitely been a while since I blog'ed. I am well overdue. Next week is my 3 month surgiversary. I'm doing really well! My doctor is lowering my blood pressure medicine and I will probably be off my CPAP by 1 year out. I can't wait!

I did a 5k walk last weekend for Breast Cancer and I was so happy I didn't have to stop and I was barely winded by the end. I have a lot more energy, confidence and pride in my appearance.

I am so lucky to work with a lot of supportive people. They are constantly complimenting me. Although it can feel embarassing sometimes, I do enjoy the positive attention.

Food and I are doing ok. Sometimes I eat something that doesn't agree with me and it makes a reappearance. But overall I can eat a lot more than I could a month ago. I have learned a lot about portion control and chewing well. I still only drink water or sugarfree beverages.

Walking is still my favorite exercise and I try to do some band exercises to help firm my arms up. I am excited for Halloween as I got a feminine Gypsy costume and I can't wait to wear it!

My 3 month post op check up is this coming week and they'll be doing my first set of lab work to check all of my levels. I do a great job taking all of my vitamins so I hope it all comes back ok!
