A lovely young lady stopped me and asked me about what I do for a living. Someone had told her I was a writer. We were talking a little bit and she asked me a lot of questions I didn't have answers for right away. I had to think about them.
|How have I been doing???|
But first, how about some pictures? I'm now 4 months and 10 days post-op VGS and I have lost 45 pounds. Add that to the 72 pounds I lost pre-op and my total equals 115 pounds lost. And add that to the 20 pounds I lost between December 2011 and February 2013 and I have lost a whopping 136 pounds!

My hair has not fallen out -- in fact, it's growing faster than ever, so are my nails. My protein levels are perfect. The only "problem" I have is my B-12 and Vitamin D levels are too high -- so I've dropped those supplements for now. I'm also having an issue with my WBC but it might be a medication I take and I see my primary next week. I've had blood work at least 6 times in the past 6 months...so I'm not really sure what else they can do except more extensive testing. I honestly believe it's my allergy medicine causing the issue. I have severe environmental allergies and take a prescription medication every day.
There's a lot more to share with you, but I thought I'd first get up some photos and general update on my health. I have more energy than I ever imagined and the days when Meniere's sidelines me frustrate the hell out of me because I just want to get up and GO and I can't.
