    Christie, glad to report my ticker is fine, so my cardiologist has signed off. Next Wednesday July 19 I will have my final meeting with dietician and Psychologist, soo all approvals will be in place. I guess I will get a surgery date soon. I am started to get a little scared but I can't go on with the extreme fatigue I have had for 4 years now. Thanks for being in my corner!

    Thanks for writing Christie. I decided to have the surgery and my wife is on board. I was on track to get a late August surgical date but the cardiologist put a temporary hiatus on things as he found a blockage in my heart. I will have to have a heart cath on July 11 and hopefully will be back on track after that. My insurance required the cardiologist check and I guess I am lucky they did. I hope things are going well for you.
    Mike

    Thanks for the well wishes. My surgery will be Monday. I am pretty nervous to be honest.

    Hi Christie, it looks like you have done great. I am 5'1" , 180 lbs. and contemplating the gastric sleeve as well. Yes I am nervous. I am a little confused on whether to have a Mommy makeover to include a breast reduction or gastric sleeve. Any suggestions?

    No worries, I have been busy so haven't actually checked in for a bit! I ended up cutting my hair to mid neck and the hair loss is evening out a bit, at least it's less hair now that it's shorter! It's also way easier getting ready for work, which is good because I started a new job that is 1/2 hour earlier in the morning so I'll take anything that lets me sleep a few extra minutes Hope you are enjoying the early part of summer!

    Well I have officially joined the sleeved side of life! Surgery went great and I am recovering well, sitting here sipping on Apple juice as I type this. I will definitely keep you posted and probably be asking for a lot of advice. Thank you for the well wishes and have a great day!

I'm back!-Gelato Every Day-Awesome Vacation

by Christie13 on Yesterday at 04:01 PM
So I had a fantastic vacation!! It was a lot of fun and a lot of food....well a lot for me. So the interesting thing is that I did not weigh myself for a full 2 1/2 weeks as I did not have access to a scale on my vacation. For whatever reason, my dad no longer had a scale in the house. At first, I was kind of freaking out about not having a scale. But I did try to pay attention to what my body looked like and how my shorts fit.
I ate anything and everything I wanted. After all, I

Shopping-Trip Preparations-Smaller Size Please-What a Bargain

by Christie13 on 07-01-2017 at 05:41 PM
So going on a trip after extreme weight loss calls for some shopping. I have been putting it off long enough and have only bought a few items to get me through over the last (almost) 8 months. A lot of that in part, though, was because I had hoarded my smaller sizes in the garage. Today I went to Kohls and did some shopping since they were having some big sales. I needed some jean shorts to add to the ones I had bought back in March. I went and grabbed some size 5 from the juniors department.

Interview-119-Italy-Going to Rock a Dress

by Christie13 on 06-27-2017 at 07:02 PM
So today has been a great day!! I just found out I will be getting interviewed for a promotion at work. And the interview is TOMORROW!!!! I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I really hope I am able to get the job as I had just been promoted in July of last year. It is a really competitive company I work for so whenever positions open up they have to weed out the applicants (internal applicants) to see who will get interviewed and then they interview quite a few for the limited positions.

Do a little dance...make a little love....get down tonight......get down tonight....

I hope you are all up dancing because guess who hit her goal weight today??? THIS CHICK RIGHT HERE!!! I feel like I have just won the freaking lottery. While I was completely satisfied with where I was...there is just something mental about hitting your goal weight. I was scared that 120 was too small. Too thin. Too low. I was probably never going to make it. Right? I mean, we have all been there. Set goals. Tried with all our might like the

And waiting on the last to fall.....

by Christie13 on 06-11-2017 at 01:02 PM
Took me about 10 days but lost another pound. As I have gotten closer to goal I figured the last pounds would be hard to lose. Surprisingly, they haven't been as hard as I thought. I have just continued on my path and they are coming off slowly but surely. I am just a pound away from my goal weight. I feel absolutely healthy and confident. I am pretty sure I have at least a couple of pounds of excess skin. I would think about 3-5. I took a few more pics today. I am losing slower now so
