1 year post op

It's been exactly one year since I had my bariatric surgery. I can't believe how fast the year went. Seems like yesterday I was being wheeled into the operating room. Well here are the results: I'm down to 214 as of this morning. Since surgery that's 82 pounds and that makes a total of 104 pounds lost since I started this journey. I still can't believe how different I look and feel. I'm so happy I chose to do this. I was so unhappy with my weight in the past and now I finally feel that I have it mostly under control. I still have more to lose (like another 40 pounds would be fabulous), but I'm ok with it now. It'd be great to get under 200. So that's my next goal. It might be a while though before that happens because in about 7 months I'll be having a baby. Yep, you heard it here first. I'm due August 2. So I'm 11 weeks as of yesterday. I wasn't going to say much until 12 weeks, but it's almost here and it's slowly being leaked to the public. I'm not ready to blast it yet on facebook so only my faithful readers here will get the inside scoop. I'm exhausted, tired and even more tired than I was with Elise. I can't keep hardly anything down and the toilet is my new best friend. Luckily I have a great doctor who has been willing to help me with medications and they seem to be working a little bit. So anyway, there's the inside 411 for you all. Happy Friday :) Oh, and I'll have some pics to post soon of my newest quilt and one that I finished a few months ago that I haven't put up here. I'm excited to be done with quilt 1 of the 12 to do this year :) And I joined a virtual quilting bee and am very excited to be in one this year. It'll really help my skills. Ok, this is long enough now.

So excited for you!! You look fabulous, by the way. I feel your pain with the morning sickness. I had it bad with all 4 of mine- hope it passes quickly!
