Almost a year



So i had my one year post op appt today( Its really not til November )  and I am well I dunno .
I told him im concerned I can eat too much . We talked a little bit and said we could do a endoscopy to see how big my stomach was ,if it was too big. After talking some more he said " lets do this I know you have not focused on your weight loss or your food for a while which is fine , he said lets spend 3 months with you REALLY Working at it and see what happens. On top of that lets get your thyroid checked ( because my hair is still falling out, mood swings and not sleeping well, all signs of thyroid issues  ) I told him that sounded good. So i asked him " What if my stomach is too big " he said " WELL We could do bypass over the sleeve which would reduce my stomach to HALF of what it already is ... " He said he does not like to do that nor does he want to on me , but its an option My husband would SHIT if i told him i needed a THIRD WLS ! So paleo is kicking in full force this week as well as working out !


I also saw a migraine speclaist today for my chronic migraines. 

She said her goal is to keep her patients at their jobs , in school and living the life they want . She wants to start with an MRI because I have not had one in so long, put me on Nortriptyline to try as a preventative , gave me amerge as an abortive , phenergan and zomig nose spray for my knock me out migraines that wake me up in the night. I have to have 15 migraines a month to qualify for botox, and i have 14 ! So she said to make a REALLY Good migraine diary for when i come back .. She said if the Nortriptyline did not work we would do botox and hope insurance will pay . I feel like I have a good plan so far !

  1. Omg, it's already been nearly a year?? Wow! I've lost about 50 pounds since last winter, but I've been kicking ass and taking names. After I separated from hubby, I started tracking what I eat (VERY important for me) and exercising 5 to 6 days a week for 50 minutes. I just got into my first size 14 in about 17 or 18 years. It certainly isn't as if having the band helped the weight melt off. :o/
