1 year Gastric Bypass surgery anniversary
Monday, June 09, 2014      3 comments

I had Gastric Bypass surgery on May 28, 2013, so I'm a little over a year post op and I'm down 103 pounds. This has been a life-changing thing in my life. After losing and gaining and dieting and all the medical problems I was having, I really... Read more
Well life just sucks this weekend.

Life has me very frustrated right now. This will probably be a long blog and not weight loss related, but I need somewhere to vent and release all of this and I find this to be a "safe" place where I won't have to worry about hurting feelings o... Read more
I have lost 100 pounds!!!
Saturday, April 05, 2014      14 comments

It hasn't really sunk in. I still get surprised when I get on the scale and see a "1" at the beginning of the number..lol I'm 15 pounds away from my goal (which will probably be adjusted, but 145 has been my goal for years as it was my high sc... Read more
Surgery day with a couple of "wins"
Friday, March 21, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday I had my hysteroscopy, except for the doc being an hour and a half behind and having to wait forever, it wasn't too bad. Was cramping pretty good when I woke up and got some meds, but was pretty much pain free the rest of the night af... Read more
Potentially scariest doctor appt I ever had
Sunday, March 16, 2014      4 comments

Well, I had my doctor appt last week. The outcome certainly wasn't what I expected. Bottom line, my lining of my uterus is way too thick and I've now developed pollups in it, which he wants to now do a hysteroscopy on Thursday to remove ... Read more
Men-don't read this blog! Unless you really want to...lol Warning-girly issues! ;)

I'm not normal....nothing about me is normal. Nothing about my family/friends/pets is normal. So of course my health and body are not normal, why would I expect otherwise? lol To sum it up...I have PCOS, over the last 10 years or so I'd ... Read more
My medical complications that aren't that complicated...
Tuesday, February 18, 2014      3 comments

Well to update since it's been a while. My energy level has been lower than it was before surgery for the last few weeks at least. I haven't exercised hardly at all. My body just feels so tired all the time. I assumed it was from working a l... Read more
My 4 checks for success.
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      7 comments

After such a stall in my weight loss over the last few months, I decided to take the doctor's advice (what a concept, huh? lol) He said, if you're in a stall, you're probably not doing one or more of the following four things: 1. Getting... Read more
Jogging? me???
Sunday, January 19, 2014      4 comments

So since it's actually above freezing today and the dog seemed to be restless we went for a walk. Now yeeeeears ago I was trying to get healthy (when I was simply chubby) and I started walking every morning, then after a few weeks I started jog... Read more
Let's see what I've accomplished...
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      5 comments

I've been struggling in the 180's for forever! I just can't seem to get under it! I'm still working on it and I know I need to be more strict on my exercising and logging food. I am better than I used to be, but there's always room for improv... Read more
I'm selling out my blog for a measly 3 points!
Wednesday, January 08, 2014      5 comments

Haven't blogged in a while so thought an update is needed. Oh and I need another 3 sparkpoints, so I'm selling out by blogging ONLY for the points...yeah, I admit it. I'll still try to make it a quality blog and interesting. lol Consti... Read more
Cows graze, I graze, therefore, I am a cow....hey! wait a second...
Friday, January 03, 2014      4 comments

No, I'm not really calling myself a cow, but I do graze..badly! Weight loss surgery does not do anything to fix your brain. If you had an eating disorder before surgery, you'll have it after surgery. It's like an alcoholic will always be an a... Read more
New year...positive and negative
Thursday, January 02, 2014      5 comments

Start of a new year! And how am I feeling? Not sure, pretty mixed emotions, honestly. After the holidays, I always feel a little melancholy and get the winter blahs. I'm not where I thought I'd be (weight wise) at this time, but I'm still tr... Read more
Baggy jeans=lower size! Super duper WIN!
Friday, December 06, 2013      5 comments

Haven't blogged in a while. I hit quite a stall in weight loss over the last few months, only dropped 15 pounds or so in the last 3 months. Doesn't make me terribly happy...but I wasn't exercising. I know it's needed, but I just wasn't doing ... Read more
Visiting with gossipy family..oh joy....
Sunday, September 15, 2013      4 comments

Family was in town for a wedding (I wasn't invited to...very extended family, no biggie) but I did go to see them today..kind of obligatory visit. I'm down 60 pounds and apparently it's very noticeable (a little to me) but I've been struggling ... Read more
