    How are things chicky? I'm doing pretty good. Stuck in a little rut, but I know I'll get out!

    Hey Brandi... just noticed you are from a town called 'Warren.' I used to live in a very small town in the far west of New South Wales, Australia- about 500km from Sydney. The town at that stage had about 2000 people in the district but is much smaller now. Thanks to Australian droughts and floods, and offshore markets, they lost their cotton production which was the main form of farming in the district.
    What's your 'Warren' like?

    Hi Brandi! Thanks for checking in. I'm three and half weeks out and down 30 pounds. I'm under 200 now, so that's exciting. Still a long way to go. Enjoying not having the cravings, although I'd really like a piece of pizza. Hope that everything is well with u!

Woke up to Onderland!!!!

by ruinessx9701 on 07-01-2012 at 09:51 AM
Well, I woke up to Onderland today!! Woo hoooo!!! 198 on the scale this morning I havent been under 200lbs in about eight years. I cannot believe that I have lost 54 lbs in less than 14 weeks, its crazy! On the flip side of things, I have been having some pain and tightness in my chest since right before bed last night. Im hoping its just because I didnt take the Prilosec yesterday. Nutritionist said I could try stopping it at around 3 months and yesterday seemed about as good a day as any. Seems

3 Month Post-Op Visit

by ruinessx9701 on 06-26-2012 at 04:43 PM
Had my three month post op visit today. Labs drawn, everything is perfect except for my iron, which is very low. Odd, but whatever. I hate iron supplements. Wierdest part of the visit was when she said she thinks that im a bit too focused on protein. I am averaging between 80-100 grams per day and she said based on my height, I shouldnt be going over 80 grams per day really. She said that long term wise, too much protein can be as harmful as not enough. I have been drinking two protein shakes per

And the hair loss begins...

by ruinessx9701 on 06-21-2012 at 11:26 AM
This hair loss is no bs... Its actually awful. I have gone through this whole journey so far with almost no complication or side effects at all - until this week. Out of nowhere, just started falling out non-stop. Started in the shower, usually I only have to clean the drain every few days and this week I have had to clean it after every single shower. I have been wearing my hair up since the surgery hoping to avoid at least noticing the hair loss and yesterday my sister (who is a hair stylist)

Large!

by ruinessx9701 on 06-08-2012 at 09:23 PM
I have always hated buying clothes for all the obvious reasons and hoped that I would get through most of this journey with buying a minimal amount. Well so much for that. Down only 45lbs (still a lot though, I know!) and already most of my tops dont fit me... So far I have lost more up top than down below. So last weekend I set out to find just one or two new summer tops, sleevless or tanks, whatever I could find to fit that didnt hang off of me like all my old 3X tops. Well I end up with two new

40lbs down and damn proud!!!

by ruinessx9701 on 05-27-2012 at 01:02 PM
Today is 60 days out and as of this mornning I am 40lbs down and very happy about it!! Happy with my slow but steady rate of loss, I really dont want to lose too much too quick because I do not want to have to deal with all this skin being saggy... Have only had some minor hiccups so far; biggest one being high estrogen issues. Turns out that fat cells store estrogen and as they deplete, they release the estrogen into your system. High estrogen gave me a 17 day period and teenage acne. Still working
