In other news, my consultation with the weight loss surgery people went well. Next step - psychiatric evaluation. If I pass that okay, then I can start looking at scheduling the surgery. I think I will even though I'm terrified. Surgery scares the crap out of me, but hey, I've got to have some help. It won't be easy, but it's another tool to help me achieve my weight loss and I'm not afraid to admit, I NEED HELP!!! So, I'll keep educating myself on it and learning what I can to be successful and go from there.

Sunday, October 10, 2010
Well, I have not posted anything for awhile again. I just cant seem to make the time to regularly post. My eating is ehhh okay, I am still working out3 days a week with my awesome trainer, but my weight has not moved from the 225 area... Blah.
DH and I went camping for a few days last week, that was fun! Camped on the beach and near the "treaty" line for any Twilight fans, and almost camped at Cape Disappointment, but ended up without dinner being packed for that night so we headed to a hotel.
Anyway though, since my last post I was also officially diagnosed with Sleep apnea. Been using my CPAP for some time now and it is starting to help!! I'm super excited!!!
Also, I have a consultation on Tuesday with the surgeon's office. I am considering Adjustable Gastric Band surgery. When my primary care doc told me I was morbidly obese it kind of hit me. Yes I know I'm overweight and that does not help my sleep apnea or anything else, but I always kind of figured I wasn't that overwieght. I work out and dont have too many other issues, but reality set it. I really am that overweight I guess. My stuggle is I am always always always hungry even if I just ate, so time for help!! I lost 70 lbs on my own before, but can't seem to do it again and I've gained 60 of that back! sheeshh.... Tuesday is the day to meet for the consultation and see where to go from here. Good thing is I know insurance will cover it. I already did my research on that end!
I will update again when I know more.
