    Hi! I know it has been forever! How are you doing?! As you know I was dealing with a lot of issues after the surgery. I still have really awful acid reflux but have it under control with medication. I kept getting into the hospital with dehydration and things were pretty terrible. But to say the least, I have dropped over 100 lbs in less than a year. I am still not sure if that is a good thing. Lol. But I drink protein and lots of vitamins! Email me.

    Hi. I'm glad to hear you are and have had a nice recovery. I still have been very ill. I have an appointment with the gastroenterologist to look into a few things. But I'm not even sure if I can make it till then. It showed on a CT scan that the stapling in my stomach is twisted (spiral) and I also have a hiatal hernia. That I'm not sure was there before. I have lost 50 lbs. But I no energy and can barely pull off a shopping trip. I will keep plugging away till things get better. Thanks for checking up! ��❤��

    How are things going? lets see with me I am plugging along weight coming off slowly which is fine. Averaging 1 to 2 textured meals a day, still feel pretty picky about what tastes good to me any more, not always reaching my protein, was trying to not have protein shakes, and getting protein in by eating, that doesn't seem to be working, so back to a shake or bar a day to up the intake...

    you are doing wonderful, and you are right, it will come off eventually. Have you discovered anything you do not like anymore? I find I need lime in my water, don't like coffee anymore, drinking tea. But I do have lots of energy and have been getting lots of things done around the house. I start back to work tonight...

I'm very happy with my weight loss but struggling with my hair loss. It's like a double edge sword.This year has been quite a challenge from so many life changes which has effected my journey: 1. My living situation keeps me from not eating the most nutritional clean foods I should be eating. Protein and veggies. 2. More water!! 3. Stress, stress and more stress. 4. Need to incorporate more exercise which should help with the stress.

Month 3 was very trying time for me and now I'm

Hair Loss!!

by Vanessa7 on 06-08-2017 at 09:10 AM
Yup...it's happening and i'm not thrilled about the 3 month hair loss. I had a full head of hair when I was younger than after unhealthy dieting it resulted in massive hair loss. I became very conscious of my hair loss and started using hair extensions which made it worse. Once i realized how bad it gotten where it was thinning on the stop, I starting applying biotin shampoos and vitamins in my life which helped regrow some hair back. For now the hair loss is not too noticeable but seeing the loose

3 months out and still on track. Weight loss has slowed down but I'm guilty of not exercising as much as I should. I moderately walk but need incorporate strength training. I use to be able to lift heavy items but now i'm so week so hoping once i get to the gym i will be able to build my strength back up. Moving and working over 40 hours a week can drain the hell out of you also...my legit excuse. I'll start going to the gym next week so ready. My intake of water is still an issue. I typically drink

Under 200!!!

by Vanessa7 on 05-10-2017 at 03:15 PM
I'm FINALLY under the 200 pound mark...its only 1 pound from 200 which i'll gain after drinking a bottle of water lol, but seeing my weight under 200 for the first time in years really brought a smile to my face. The weight has slowed down but i'm not stressing about it. I'm just happy it's consist. No more yo-yo dieting and binging. I miss binge eating at times but seeing the results pushes those thoughts to the back of my mind.
Note to self: Be proud of yourself and stay positive.

It has been a crazy ride. I still can't believe I had the guts to go to Mexico alone for surgery but thank God everything has turned out well. In the beginning i was having some major mood swings but it's gotten better. Those lovely craving never completely goes away but you have to learn to deal with it. As a reminder I like to try on one of my dresses that didn't fit before and I can honestly say...wow.... curves popping out instead of fat rolls lol. It's a beautiful feeling.
