2 months Post Op,.. and thinking I need a B 12... on July 19, 2011 8:37 pm
Two months,..tick tock,.. down to 289 from 335,.. for a lost of 46 lbs and 62 over all! Funny how getting the numbers out the way seems to be the first thing!
Ive been trying not to obsess about my numbers but it definitely is easy to. My energy levels have been wayyy down and I am not sure if its already a symptom of low B12,.. but I called my Dr. to get a script for the B12 shot instead of the subliguals. Ive been taking 500 mcg per day and 5000 mcg every other Saturday,.... soo we shall see.
Exercise is going pretty good even though I only made it to the gym 2x last week,.. all I wanted do is sleep. I have been working alot but I do feel this is energy related and not task related. Im still uber surprised at how well I am doing emotionally thus far ,.. I keep on waiting for an OMG,... wtf did I do,.. ? Or,...my life suxxx moment,..lol But u know, that isn't me,. Ive been such an optimistic and confident person all my life ,.. and even though at 360 I did have my moments,...and unhappiness about my weight,... I still recognized so many positive things about my life so I shouldn't be surprised that I am doing well emotionally. I think I am just hyper sensitive to the emotional journey being a therapist and all but I feel good,.. holistically good! And if and when I have my emotional dips,... I will have my support both internally and externally. I know they will come,.. just have to be mindful and mentally prepared,... as much as I can be. Blessings Blessings!
I finally took my measurements last week,.. I had no real desire to but I do know it may be something that I may want in the future. I had some measurements a few months before surgery so I will just use those as my starting mark,....
Mmm,...yea,.. I may post more this next month,.... Ive gotten caught up post surgery and enjoying less clients still school begins in September,.. its enjoyable,... taking care of me,... is enjoyable!

Thanks to everyone and my new friends for the kind words throughout these past few weeks. Im not much of a blogger but I do want to at least do an update every few weeks or so just ta' fyi myself and well as anyone who wishes to read.
I had my Rny on May 19 and was discharged at a weight of 335. My surgery went so well,..no complications thus far,.. no issues with gas,.. no extreme pain,.. I was practically fast walking down the halls. I was D/C the next day and my parents (Mom is a nurse) and younger sister, a nurse as well,.. stayed with me for about 5 days,.. and then my little brother , 19 y/o,.. stayed with me for two weeks just in case since I have no family in the area,.... only awesome friends. I started back work last week,.. getting my walkings in almost everyday and will be finally back in the gym to do cardio at least this Wed. Im surpised I havent had any OMG WTH did I do thoughts even though I was uber prepared with reminder cards and personal mantras to utilize to deal with emotions. I know I was / am scared of the emotional aspects of this journey,. but I also know I am preparing myself as much as I can while still being grounded to the reality of the surgery and the upcoming highs and lows.
I am currently at 303 at 3.5 weeks,.. for a lost of 32 lbs since surgery,... and a total lost 47 since April 1,... and I feel reall good,... energy has been up since about a week out and I have to be careful not to push myself too much even though I feel so well.
Im excited to get clearence to get back in the gym and do weights,... a couple of years ago when I lost 90ish lbs,. I lovedd the gym and I KNOW I will get back to that place where my day wont feel complete unless I exercise.
The only issues I have had is with some of my eating. Now, I know in general I tend to eat veryyy fast,.. people have commented on it most my life. lol Its been a struggle since surgery to slow down my drinking and intakes. One side effect Ive had that I have not found too much info on line,.. is when I eat too fast,.. I almost black out. I feel the stuck feeling then slightly light headed,.. then it seems as though the room fads dark then gets back light. Its quite scarey! Its happened about 3 times,.. and each time,.. I can look back and KNOW what I did wrong. So I have to constently be mindful of the mositure in my food,.. how big my bites are and how fast I eat. Sooo that,.yeah,.. its sometime I have work on,.. .. other wise,.... I feel very blessed! I began some soft foods this week,... scrambled eggs,.,. ground chicken with lots of sauce,... 75 % of the time,. its gone well,... bit by bit,...
