10 months.......

Dan is right at the 10 month mark and I am a few days from it.  I know I have been neglecting this site and I feel bad about it....but we are so busy.  Now that summer is over and the kids are back in school I may feel like I have alittle extra time on a day off from work.  Except we are moving to a new house on Oct22nd :0
Well, lets get to the numbers.  Dan is now at 179.....yes I is alot......He has now lost over 140 lbs.  He is looking very SKINNY.  He is in a 34 pant size and a L mens shirt.  He is feeling just fine.  His pulse is still a little low but he is doing just fine.  I am at 202....I just cannot get to 199.  I go up and down, up and down between 4 and 5 lbs but the scale will not go below 200  :(     But I am doing fine.  I am in a 14/16 misses pants and a XL shirt. Loving my new body and the clothing choices I get to make.  I do have a few issues that are in the are a few that some of you might be experiencing too.  My iron is low.  A 7.4 .....not good.  I am now on 2 iron supplements and may have to get an infusion if things don't improve.  I also have had my 3rd UTI/Kidney Infection since March.  Seems excessive huh?   Well my doctor thinks it may all have to do with low iron, immune system and heavy periods (TMI).  So we are working on all that too.  My hair is still thinning and growing back at the same time....It is driving me crazy.  But at least it is growing back.  But even with my list of small complaints I am so happy we did this.  We are different people because of it.  Things are just easier when you are thinner.  Being heavy just isn't the way to live a life.  Here is a new picture of us:
I hope everyone is doing well.....I have been catching up with blogs, facebook posts and of course watching videos. Maybe I will do a video soon :)

  1. You guys look great!

    I am on the verge of getting iron infusions too. My iron is a 5 and i can't get it up even on my high dose which I'm sure is the same you are taking. I have had recurrent UTI's too. I really wonder if it IS from iron. My doc never mentioned it. My hair is falling out in clumps still but I do have little sprouts. Mine is from the low iron and protein.

    I am a year out today and still struggle :(
