18 month surgiversary on 11-17-18

Recommended Posts

It’ll be 18 months post op on the 17th, and I truly still can’t believe that much time has passed since surgery. It’s all a huge blur. I reached my original goal weight on February 20, 2018. My final goal weight on my birthday (April 6, 2018) and I’ve been averaging 18 pounds less than goal for a couple of months now. I’ve actually been advised to stop losing weight for the moment, because due to my specific circumstances and severe muscle wasting I need to work on building muscle and can’t afford to lose any more right now. I really just wanted to thank you all for all of the advice, support, and love you have all given me these past (almost) 3 years since joining TT. Especially @Res Ipsa, @cinwa, and @Cheesehead from the veterans POV, and @NerdyToothpick, @CheeringCJ, @Jen581791, @tracyringo, @Cindy Lou Who and @TammyP...who have always been my cheering section here at TT!! If I’d forgotten anyone, PLEASE don’t be offended...im a currently unmedicated bipolar patient, and memory is not my strong suit at the moment. I love you guys and will be back soon, hopefully! 

Omg...and of course I can’t forget @BurgundyBoy!!!!! Thank you all so much!!

oh, and my @Carina!!! Love and hugs, sweet pea!!

Congrats on hitting 18 months @Nana Trish. I realised the other day I had just hit 18 months as well. Seems like it wasn't that long ago both of us were facing delays waiting for our surgeries. I look back at that time and I am actually grateful for it.... But also very happy that  surgery is now a distance memory...... and maintaining hasn't been as hard as we all dreaded it would be.

Happy 18 month surgiversary Trish!

I know that you've had some difficulties this past few months and we've missed you terribly.  Just know that you're in our thoughts and prayers.

Congratulations on your 18 months, Trish! You've had your ups and downs along the way, but here you are, a little teeny 141 pound lady, much much healthier than when you started. Take some time on the 17th to spoil yourself a bit somehow - mark the day, do a happy dance, give your family a big squeeze, and take a picture to make it official. You're a star!

Happy 18 month (belated) to you too, @Aussie Bear! You’re very right, maintaining hasn’t been as hard as expected for me either. Except maybe getting in enough calories to stop losing, lol.

Thank you so much, @cinwa ❤️

Your support has always meant so much to me...if you only knew. Thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers! I’m still doing great in maintenance, and trying to get everything else in order. I hope you have fun plans for the holidays and that you and your hubby are doing well ❤️

It's good to see you posting Trish.  I'm well but cold but the PNW isn't noted for it's warm weather at this time of the year and there's snow on the hills surrounding us - thank you for asking.

Sounds like idyllic Christmas weather to me cinwa. Roaring wood fire,  roasted ham and Turkey with hot pudding, snow outside. What can I say, here we swelter in century plus degree heat. I envy you. I'd love to experience a white Christmas just once in my lifetime. What can I say.... "The grass is always greener on the other side....."
