    16 months post op. 105 lbs down.

    Hello everyone. Let me tell you my journey. December 16th 2014 I had RNY surgery. Life before my surgery was okay as far as I knew. I started the process in February of that year after I was feeling like nothing was working in weightloss. I tried everything. I was depressed and really hating myself. Im a bubbly person and always had alot of friends. Always the one to make people laugh and an overall funny happy person on the outside. Inside I was hurting. I felt like no matter what I did I was never good enough. Why did these people want to be my friend if I look like this? I had a fiance who I assume loved me for my personality. I could count the number of times he called me pretty on one hand in the whole 9 years we were together. He says complimenting made him uncomfortable. Even if I got dolled up and was confident. He wouldn't say a word. The only time he would have a comment on my appearance is if I was wearing a shirt or something he didn't like he would tell me. So as you can guess it made me feel alot worse about myself. I never felt like I was remotely attractive. So I settled for what I had thinking it wouldn't get any better. Fast forward to me having the decision for this surgery. He didn't like the idea. Didn't really support me in my choice. I'm independant and I did it anyway. While in the hospital for the 2 days it takes to recover. He only visited me once and that was just to pick up my best friend who sat by my side the entire time. Now fast forward to me losing weight, feeling good and getting my life back. Everyone is telling me how amazing I look and how proud they are of me. My fiance said he couldn't even notice. Unless someone was around he would just nod his head to what they said. In March of 2015 after getting even more depressed about my future with him and my feeling towards myself. I left him. I knew I deserved more and there was so much more to life that I didn't even realize. Moved in with my friends. Sold our house. He got mostly everything out of it because I'm "too nice". That's okay I guess. Looking back I would have done things differently but it's too late for that. Since that decision I have been living the dream. I dropped the people that didn't support me and held me back in life. In December 2015 I got a job offer in dubai which I took. I now live in abu dhabi in UAE living and loving life. I've changed everything in my life and I couldn't be happier. I'm in a new relationship with someone who thinks I'm out of his league and let's me know daily how much he appreciates me. In reality I think he is out of my league. He's an amazing person and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I'm 105lbs down which I know I could be more but I'm comfortable the way I am. I just wanted to share my story here with you all and share some pictures. I took life by the horns and I don't let anything stand in my way anymore. I'm confident and happy and no matter what happens I will keep pushing forward. I hope you all do the same. Love yourself and do what you need to be happy. Sincerely, Your biggest fan. Kelly.this is the new and improved me and I love her.

    Want to smoke

    i quit smoking over a year ago and it was so easy for me. i read the book "Allen Carrs Easy Way To Stop Smoking" You're supposed to smoke while you read the book too so it makes it easier. by the time i was done reading i threw out my brand new pack with only 2 smokes gone out of it. and i havent looked back. i was a smoker of 8 years and i quit over a weekend i just kept reading the book and couldnt put it down. i wasnt ready to quit either, it was more of someone telling me about the book and i said it doesnt work, sounds stupid. so i thought what do i have to loose, and it worked for me. but thats me. it probably doenst work for everyone. but give it a try!

    I had the dry heaves too. And i have so much gas built up inside me that I can't pass. So its painfull. I walk been walking as much as I can without getting dizzy . I had low blood pressure when leaving the hospital and low oxygen levels. But they let me go anyway so I hope that it will correct itself.

    Hi everyone. My surgery was today. In feeling alright. I had a bad allergic reaction to the antibiotic that they gave me through iv before I had surgery. That was the worst part of this. I'm not in much pain but I'm a little dizzy.

    Pre-op and Nervous

    My surgery is tomorrow. talk about nerves!! I am coming to realize to just visualise next Christmas time, and how I will look and feel. a family friend of mine had her RNY 2 years ago and is doing fantastic. she told me to buy something that is way to small for me. so that when it fits, i'll have an over whelming feeling of success. so I have something in my closet just waiting.. lol maybe get something like this?
