    Hi Jenna Just reading some of your blogs and posts. You have maintained a long time! Its great to see your success and you are still active here and sharing, I appreciate that! I see you are in the diabetic group, did you or do you still take diabetic meds and how has the sleeve helped? Did the progress for your A1C take long? That's a first major goal for me, NO MORE MEDS!!

    Hi Jenna, I'm approaching my 2 year anniversary on Aug. 27th, I lost as much as 76lbs. but I have recently (the last 3 months) started to gain. I have gained 11 lbs. and I'm terrified of getting fat again. I contacted you because you were sleeved almost 5 years ago and I was wondering if you had a similar issue. I understand that the body eventually recalibrates itself. I'm 5 ft 3 and 1/2 inches tall so I was hoping to reach a goal weight of 120 lbs but I only reached 139 Lbs for a very short time then calibrated at 141 lbs and now I'm gaining. I would appreciate any advice that you may have since you've been through it already. Thanks.

    Hi jennak89, thank you for your "welcome". I'm in awe of your courage and stand at the very beginning of my new life. I have made the decision and am waiting on tender hooks to see if I will be accepted as a candidate. Best of luck to you on your journey!

    Congrats on your progress. How are you coming along. At 2.5 years out, I'm finding the hardest part is maintaining but I continue to work hard. I can now eat more at least a small saucer of food. I have to strive to make good choices. I've worked too hard to get to this point. Just sending you words of encouragement. I tell myself that eating the junk food does not make me nearly as happy as being healthy feels.

    Good luck on your journey im sure you have worked real hard too. Best of luck on your success

    I have been doing very well thank you.
    Life has been pretty good, no complaints.

    I gained a few pounds over the holiday season enjoying the "Holiday Spirit" a little too much, but lost them (oh well, live and learn).

    Hopefully everything is going well for you.

A new sport

by jennak89 on 04-20-2018 at 04:18 AM
greeting and long time no see or talk.

I am doing good, I know my blood work is low on Iron and my Vitamin D, is low since I do live in Alaska. I have been taking all required medication.

That is key post surgery and I can say I have been slacking. I remember to take them when I wake up from my after noon nap before work.

To get into shape I am taking up Rugby, I know its a tough sport and it is very cardio keyed. I have also joined the YMCA, I like

Food for thought

Well I started taking a new anti depressant over the past years, I have lost a job or lost a family member and yes I am talking to a counselor .

I am on 10 mg does, I have noticed a difference.

IF you need to take mediation after surgery please talk to your provider, and if it doesn't work please give it time.
