My blog is 1 year old today and an update……

Hey everyone.
I’m so sorry I haven’t been blogging for so long. I’m still not feeling very well after my infection last spring. I’m so tired and I don’t have much energy. This is driving me nuts. I want to do so much. I want to exercise but I’m to tired to do it. But I know I have to and that I probably will get more energy. But I have lost: (drum roll…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) 77 pounds (35 kg). I’m so happy for that and so grateful. I can move more easily. My current weight is: 214.72 pounds. In kilos I’m under 100 kg. 97.6 kg. So I’m so happy that I did have the surgery. I know I couldn’t have lost so much weight without it. I’m glad I took that step. Even though I sometimes regret it, and that’s when I’m dumping. I have dumping a lot. Everyday. And I don’t know why because sometimes I can eat something and the next time I can’t. Oh well…. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today it’s my blog’s Birthday. It’s 1 year old. Happy Birthday Angeljens Blog! Time flies so fast.

On New Years Eve I wore my dream dress. I bought it a couple of years ago and it have been hanging on my wardrobe. So I could see it everyday. I still look big in it but I did feel beautiful in it.

I have also cut my hair. I love my new hair cut. Since surgery I have lost so much hair. So I haven’t been getting enough of protein.

My new hair cut.

I will go back to fluids. 2-3 bags a day. I have been binging the last 2 months so I have to do something to get me back on track.
I will also try to blog more often.
Happy New Year!

I will see you in the next blogpost.

1 August 1995….

1 August 1995 was a very special day. It was a day filled with joy and love. Today 18 years ago someone special was born. Someone who filled my life with joy, love and sunshine. Someone who didn’t care that I was overweight. Someone who loved me for me. It was love at first sight. Today my niece Louise turns 18 years old. I can’t believe it. It feels like it was yesterday you were born. Time flies so fast. Happy Birthday sweetheart. I love you so much. I’m exactly twice your age. Crazy haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re an adult know. A beautiful young woman. I’m so grateful that you’re in my life. I couldn’t love you more if I was your mother. But I’m just your aunt. The best aunt in the world. ๐Ÿ™‚ And you are the best niece in the world. I love you.

Happy 2 Months Surgerversary to me……

Hey hey friends.
Today it’s my 2 Months surgerversary. It feels like so much have happened. I haven’t lost that much weight since Thursday last week. I think my weight is standing still at the moment. But when I was at the hospital I gained almost 10 pounds. I think it was the antibiotics that did that. But I lost it again when I came home. The antibiotics gave me dumping after every meal. And that made me regret that I had the surgery. I still feel that way, but it’s better now. I don’t have dumping after every meal now and that’s good.
I had an appointment at the hospital today. The doctor in the infection ward (where I stayed a couple of weeks ago) wanted to see me again and see how I was doing. I’m doing better but I’m still so tired. Which the doctor said that I would be for a while, since I was really sick. They took some new bloodtests too, to see if the infection is gone. Which I hope it is. I will find out later what the tests say. The doctors don’t know why I got sick. Oh well.
I don’t have any new pics to show. I will take some new pics tomorrow. I can’t see that I have lost weight, but I do feel it in my clothes. But others see it. I ordered some new clothes online on Sunday. And they have arrived already. I will pick them up tomorrow at the postoffice. Yay! I hope they fit. ๐Ÿ™‚ If they don’t, they will. I might take some pics of them tomorrow too and show them.
Mom and dad; I’m so grateful that I have you guys. I love you so much. โค

Take care and I will see you in the next blogpost. I love you all.

8 weeks post-op…

Hey hey hey friends.
Sorry I haven’t been here for a couple of weeks. I haven’t been feeling very well. As for some of you know that I have been to the hospital couple of weeks ago. I was there for almost 1 1/2 weeks. The doctors don’t know what was wrong with me. It started with a crazy pain. I have never been in that much pain before. And I hope I never will again. I couldn’t walk, eat, or get dressed. I’m so thankful for my parents. They had to take care of me. They fed me and helped me in the bathroom. When the pain didn’t get better we went to the ER. And I had a fever too. The doctors thought it might be my stomach that made me sick. They x-rayed my lungs, my right shoulder and my stomach. It all looked fine. The bloodtests where fine too, exept that the could see that I had an infection. They pumped me full with antibiotics. I have been home for 2 weeks now. And I’m still so tired. That’s why I haven’t been bloging or been on Facebook. I’m feeling a little bit better. I’m taking day by day.
Today have been a great day. I have been sitting in the sun. I always feel better when the sun is up. So now I am nice and crisp. Haha. I don’t think I have burnt myself but I do feel a little bit crisp.
Oh well.
And now some numbers. ๐Ÿ™‚
Starting weight February 5 2013: 291.72 pounds (132.6 kg)
Weight on surgery day April 11 2013: 271.48 pounds (123.4 kg)
Todays weight June 6 2013: 239.58 pounds (108.9 kg)

3 weeks post-up… A little late

Hey hey hey my friends. I hope you’re all doing well. I’m okey, I guess. I’m sorry this post is late. I haven’t been feeling very well. I hate dumping. I have been having that a lot lately. On Tuesday, last week, I experienced when food get stuck for the first time. And not being able to drink to help the food out, is hard. I miss drinking to my dinner or lunch. It happened twice that day. In a couple of hours. For dinner we had meat. I tried cutting the meat in small pieces. But I guess they weren’t that small. Then about 2 hours after dinner we had some dessert. Ice cream. I had some lactosefree ice cream. The ice cream got stuck. I had to run to the bathroom. I thought that I was gonna be sick and vomit. But I didn’t. Thank God. I hate vomitting. I really hate it. Then the rest of the week I have had dumping and food getting stuck. But I did weigh myself today. So my new weight is: 246.84 pounds (112.2 kg) Total loss is: 44.88 pounds (20.4 kg)
Since Feb 5th. I think it’s amazing. And I’m so happy with the weightloss. I just wish that I could start exercise. My ankle is still a big problem. I had no problem when I ran. But a few days later I danced. And the day after that my ankle hurt. One day last week I had to sitt in the wheelchair again. When is my ankle gonna be fine. I want to start moving. Like Zumba, walking and running. But I can’t because of my stupid ankle. It takes time because of my reumatical diceases. I wish I didn’t have them. And if I didn’t have them I wouldn’t be overweight. Okey I have to stop complaining now and feeling sorry for myself. It’s just one if those days today. But I have to get ready now. I’m going to a Tableline Party. And I don’t know what to wear.
Take care and have a great evening/ morning or day. It depends on where you are in the world. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will see you in the next blogpost.

Today a nurse took this away. Finally. (The picture is one of the cuts on my stomach) The nurse said that the cuts looked fine. They have healed really well. And that’s great.
Now it’s dinner time. ๐Ÿ™‚
