So as of today, I'm down 47 lbs since Nov 24th and have been feeling pretty darn good!
The only set backs I've had are as follows:
-getting in all of my vitamins
-getting enough fluids

I went to Dr. H for my 2 month check up and he agreed that my gallbladder needs to come out ASAP. My last u/s showed that I have sludge in it. So, next Thurs I will be having my gallbladder removed in same day surgery. I pray that all goes well (no complications). I must remember to start drinking like a fish 3 days before surgery *so I won't be dehydrated* and thus the I.V. placement will be much easier. I have terrible luck with IV's...I think last time I was stuck at least 7 times before one actually worked.

I'm looking around for a gym to join so I can start working out more regularly...I want this weight to keep coming off!
Anyhow, thats all of an update that I've got for now. I will keep you updated to the latest here.

Take care!

Long time no post!

Wow do I have a LOT of updating to do! As of today, I am down 40 pounds!! My scrubs for work are already huge on me! After I lose 10 more pounds I am going to a.) buy more scrubs  b.) get a promised pedicure from mom! Mom said that once I lose 50 pounds that she is going to get me a pedicure from a girl that does hers. I have never had a pedicure before, so that sounds cool to me!

For the most part I have had nothing but good things happen....with the exception of one or two...
Towards the middle of December I had to get re-admitted to the hospital for a few days. My bowels stopped moving and I was pretty darn dehydrated. While there I got plenty of I.V. fluids, another E.G.D. (to see if I had a stricture), another gallbladder ulstrasound and a medicine called Reglan (to help my bowels move again). Well the only thing that truly came back poorly was my gallbladder ultrasound. Basically I now have sludge in my gallbladder and will eventually have to have it taken out. By the time I left the hospital I felt like a new woman! I could finally drink more fluids, keep a little more food down and I have been fine ever since, with the exception of an annoyingly sore spot around my gallbladder.
When I saw my awesome surgeon again he said that if I started having any nausea and vomiting to go straight to the hospital and he will take out my gallbladder.
Well I've definitely had some nausea...and pain there...but I'm still holding out a little longer.

Anyhow, that's what's been going on here lately. I'll try to be better and update some more later on.

Take care everyone!
