I joined spark people in september of 2007, more than 5 years ago, ive been up and down and kept finding myself back to about the same weight or more. Well this year in September i realized we were close to meeting our out of pocket max for our insurance, I decided that i should look into gastric bypass surgery. Looking into it turned into me determined to have it done before the end of the year. These things take time to get approved by insurance but luckily my insurance is one of the easier ones to convince that its necessary. i was originally expecting to be cutting it close and possibly having surgery in the last week of december, much to my surprise on friday nov 30th the nurse called and told me to expect a surgery date on dec 19th, i was excited that i would be a little sooner than expected... then mon dec 3rd she called surgery was set for mon dec 10th!! it def didnt give me much time to prepare! I was excited, hubby was nervous, and we were both surprised it was all happing so quickly! So here i am about 7 days post op, im doing pretty well, on a clear liquid diet and having a little trouble gettingenough liquids in, but tomorrow i start the full liquid diet and suspect it will get easier as the stomach swelling goes down. I cant even put into words how excited i am to finally be able to play with my kids and have the energy that ive been lacking for SOOOO long!!

    Hey Katie. We are about the same weight. I have a 19 mth old, an 11yr old and a 14 yr old. Makes life interesting. lol
    Youngest was a big 9 yr old vasectomy. hahahahahahahahaha
    All girls and I love doing it again but i'd like to lose the weight.
    I don't think 140 is right for me though. I was 205 when my hubby and I first met. I'd love to get down to that again and then we'll see....
    Anyhoooo, welcome to Boise Sparks. There's only a few of us so it's kinda quiet.
    Hope to here from you more.
    See ya on the flipside.

    Hi! Welcome to SP, and to the Boise Sparks Team!! Feel free to join in any of our threads any time!!! Yes, you can loose the weight! It maynot be overnight (and I know you don't expect it to be), but you CAN DO IT! I've been doing this for almost a year, and have lost 50 lbs (I have a slow meatbolism, and have had a few bumps in the road on this journey), but anyways, that's how I know you can do it! Congrats on your baby! Take care, and I look forward to getting to seeing ya on the team!
