A year ago… 10

A year ago today I was in a hospital bed, very drowsy, and wanting something to drink. I couldn’t have anything to drink, though, because I hadn’t had my pouch checked to see if it leaked. It’s weird, the closer it has gotten to my 1 year anniversary of the surgery, the more I seem to remember about it. It’s like I had forgotten some of the little things from that day, but now I remember them like it was yesterday.

So, a year has passed and I have lost around 100 pounds. That’s a lot of weight. I still need to lose 100 more, but losing this next 100 seems to be happening a lot slower than the first 100. Of course, that’s to be expected since I can actually eat meals now, whereas for 2 months last year I couldn’t eat at all…and then when I could eat, I was having so much trouble keeping things down that I threw up once a day for several weeks, then a few times a week, then once a week. Now, its down to a couple of times a month. I’d mention how much I miss it (because I just spent a lot of time doing it), but people would probably start to call me a bulimic…which I’m not.

Mom and I had to take Molly to the vet today. She’s having tummy troubles, and my mom was worried that she might have swallowed some glass last night. (Molly pulled a glass bowl off the stove and it broke.) We’re having to keep an eye on her. I hope she didn’t swallow any glass and that her tummy problems pass.

    What an inspiration you are. I have been seriously contemplating having the procedure done. I have heard an equal amonth of positive and negative things and I am very scared about having it done. It’s wonderful to see someone that’s had it and it’s done well for. Best of luck!

    awesome layout, i never see alias fans around..i was looking around to see if you had any pictures of what you looked like before to what you look like now. i’ve never known anyone to lose so much weight, that’s really amazing. my ex lost 80 lbs in about 7 months on weight watchers, and that was awesome enough.
    you sound like you’ve been through a lot, and that’s a lot to look up to.
