I try to keep my page updated. If I haven't updated in a while, feel free to Sparkmail me and ask me to update!


Most recent update = October 18th, 2020


I had a VSG - vertical sleeve gastrectomy - better known as a gastric sleeve on June 24th 2020. I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager and I am now 50. I am tired of it. I lost over 100 pounds in 2016, kept most of it off but simply had not been able to lose any more. I needed a tool that will help me do this. Please, for those that have not followed me in this, do not think "this was the easy way" it ain't even close to easy. But it is a beautiful tool with which to reach my goals and stay there!


Highest Weight (HW) 435 - BMI Feb 1st 2016 = 68.1 super-super-morbidly obese
Surgery Weight (SW) 352 lbs - BMI June 24th 2020 = 55.1 super morbidly obese
pivotal moment - 314 lbs - BMI August 23rd 2020 = 49 morbidly obese or class 3 obesity
pivotal moment - 299lbs - BMI Sept = 46.8 class II obesity- finally under 300
CURRENT WEIGHT (CW) 296 lbs - BMI October 18th 2020 = 46.4 morbidly obese or class 3 obesity


pivotal moment goal ...255lbs - BMI DATE ??? = 39.9 = class II obesity (severe obese)
pivotal moment goal...223lbs - BMI DATE ??? = 34.9 = class 1 obesity (obese)
pivotal moment goal...191lbs - BMI DATE ??? = 29.9 = overweight
Goal Weight (GW) 159 lbs - BMI = DATE??? = 24.9 = normal weight

of course now they have changed the classifications of BMI, but that was how the classifications went when I started... this is current information

BMI Classification[16]
18.5 or less underweight
18.5–24.9 normal weight
25.0–29.9 overweight
30.0–34.9 class I obesity
35.0–39.9 class II obesity
40.0 or more class III obesity
The surgical literature breaks down class III obesity into further categories, though the exact values are still disputed.

A BMI above 35 is severe obesity
A BMI above 40 is morbid obesity
A BMI above 50 is super obese

My Goals:
I just want to be comfortable in my own skin. To be able to walk around in the stores. To be able to take care of myself without help. I want to LIVE


My Program:
I have to make sure I get protein before any other foods or I may not have room for the protein. But I am not "low-carb". It's just that protein has to come first since my VSG

My real name is Kathy and I live in southern West Virginia with my Husband James.
we have no kids
I am a 1970 model - just like my husbands favorite car - his Chevelle!
I am 5'7"
I was 5'8" as a teenager! I lost an inch the wrong direction!!!!

    Welcome to Friday once again! I got a call today to remind me that have a dental appointment next week, and of course, that got me quite down in the mouth. . . So to cheer myself up, I decided to brighten my outlook and smile with some dental jokes. After all good dental hygiene is no laughing matter. I hope these don't leave you with a bad impression, feeling numb, or in need of some laughing gas.

    What do you call a dentist that doesn't like tea?
    Denis

    What is the most popular time for a dental appointment?
    At tooth hurty

    What the dental term for X-rays?
    Tooth pics

    What did the dentist say to his patient, the golf pro?
    You got a hole in one!

    What's the definition of a toothache?
    A pain in the mouth that sometimes drives people to extraction.

    What's the best way to get a job in the dentist's office?
    By word of mouth.

    What do you call a lecture from the dentist?
    His floss-ophy.

    Here are a couple more that should make you smile. . .

    My dentist was voted the #1 dentist in our county. All he got was a little plaque.

    A buddist monk went to the dentist, and he needed a cavity filled.
    He refused any novacaine or pain killers when they were offered.
    He decided to transcend dental medication.

    I guess these jokes must be getting a little long in the tooth, so I'll stop for now.
    But before I go, please tell me the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth . . .
    Did you REALLY like these jokes?
    Thanks for your support and encouragement this week, or just for dropping by to say Hi!
    Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!!!
