Monday....WHATEVER! on November 26, 2007 9:48 am
I'm not a huge fam on Monday! Especially after having had a couple of extra days off! But at least I did get those days, and I got to see my family, so that makes it all worth it.
Well I think I finally broke my plateau I weighed yesterday and had lost 4.5, so I'll take it. Tomorrow is my 2 month surgiversary, and I have lost 50 pounds. Works for me! I have been retaining a lot of water, and was able to get rid of it during my time off (not sitting at my desk for hours on end). Now I just need to make sure I get up and move around and drink more water so it doesn't float back!
Thanksgiving was good. I was able to eat more variety than I had expected, but still only a couple of ounces. Everything tasted so flippin good, and I just wanted to be able to scarf down my mom's mini quiches, and my aunts garlic spinach dip. Not to mention the usual spread of yummies my Grammy puts on. But alas, not for me. That's all right. What I had was great, and I didn't vomit, so !
I uploaded a few nex pixs, but they pretty much suck! I'll have to have my kids start taking my monthly pix cause my camara phone is pretty limiting and I would like to be able to look back when later down the line and be pleased with the chronology.
I was fishing for somethin to wear to work this morning and found a size 20 suit pants. They are a tad snug, but zipped right up! Right on! And my jacket is an 18! Yes! I'll be happy to get my butt into a 12 when this is all said and done. I guess time will tell.
That's it for this Monday....talk to me friends!! D.

I love Friday!! on November 16, 2007 12:26 pm
I just love reading people's posts! Some of you are so friggin funny, and some of you break my heart. What a flippin roller coaster we are on! I wish I could be as funny, or profound, or insightful, but alas...I'm not! I'm just kinda here and everyonce in a while have something to say.

Oh, I did get excited yesterday! I was trolling my closest for something to wear that is not hanging off of me (not complaining...love that they are all hanging off...just haven't bought new stuff yet cause I am trying to get to 50 pounds first...I'm at 46) and I pulled out a shirt I haven't worn in years. I didn't actually think it would fit, but wondered how close I was. Well that sucker slipped right on! It was a little more snug than I usually like, but then again I am used to wearing things lose....cause I just know it hides 100 pounds!! (Right!) And here is what amazed me....before surgery I was wearing anywhere from a 28 to a 32. That shirt was a flippin 18-20!!! What the crap!!! It's hard to think things are still changing even though my evil scale is still possessed and stuck at 255 for the last stinkin 3 weeks, but I guess they must be cause that shirt sure didn't fit 3 weeks ago. So, Yipee!! I was thinking I'd go shopping this weekend for something to wear to the fam on Thanksgiving so they can maybe see some progress. We'll see.....!
I'm not really worried about Thanksgiving dinner cause most things make me sick anyway! (Anybody else still having this issue?) I can eat something today and it goes down just fine... but tomorrow....watch out! Is this normal?? (My husband would tell you there is nothing normal about me!)
Well even though our weekend has nothing exciting planned (except the ever thrilling kids soccer games!!) I am looking forward to not being at work and walking around the house in my Tinkerbell jammies! Until next time...
Plateau...crud! on November 12, 2007 9:00 am
So here I am, just 6 1/2 weeks post-op, and at a stinkin plateau! I know, I know, it's normal... but it still sucks! It's been nearly 3 weeks, and I'm beginning to think my scale is broken... or just evil! I know 45 pounds in a month and a half is awesome, but when I am eating next to nothing it is just frustrating.
I must admit that I have had some trouble getting in my protein, but it all tasted so nasty. I did try a soy protein shake this weekend that was much better than the whey, so that is helpful. A freind also told me about Red Mill dry vegi soup mix that I cooked up last night. It has 20 grams of protein for just a half cup! Great...if I could get that half a cup in! Anyway, the soup tasted pretty good (I sauteed some carrot, onion, and garlic first, and used half chicken broth/half water, rather than just the water it called for), but I cooked it too long, so it was too mushy. I will try again as I know I have to get this stinkin protein in one way or another. So, I don't know if that is part of my plateau problem...any of you have that issue that caused a plateau.
I have been wanting to eat more lately, but my body is just so picky about what I can keep down. Something that agress with me on Tuesday makes me sick on Wednesday! Again, very frustrating. I was hoping to be down at least another 20 by Christmas, so what do I need to do??
Here's a secret....(I wonder if I am not alone...?)... I have struggled so much with my weight over my 41 years that it is still very difficult for me to believe that this is actually going to work for me. I keep feeling like I will be in that small percentage of people who have the surgery but still can't lose the weight. I know that is a negative veiwpoint, and that is bad. I am trying to be positive. Any words of encouragement?

Well hello OH friends! I have been poking around this sight for about the last month and thought it was about time I figured out how to update my profile! I read comments on here every day, and I know that I like to be able to check out a person's profile, see their pictures, learn their experience. So on the off chance somebody might want to see my smile, here it is! It ain't much, but it's what I got! I still haven't figured out how to add my signature on here so I can add the tickerfactory.com tracker, so if anybody has any advise, I'm all ears!

So I had my surgery just over a month ago and have lost 42 pounds. I think I may be having my first plateau, as I have not lost in about 5 days, but I know from reading here that that is normal. I mean, you lose 42 pounds in a month... if my didn't want to slow down and catch up I might worry!! I wondered if it might be beacuse I have been trying to increase my variety a little bit as I am of so sick of the same like five foods for the last month! My volume is still very low, obviously, but I was able to keep down two baby carrots and two bite of brocoli last night, and that was awesome! I love fruits and vegetables and have been missing them terribly. (Had I stuck to those fruits and vegatables and not so much ice cream and 2nd helpings I might not be where I am! Oh Well!)
I am finding it hard to find time to fit in the exersise. I know I need to make time for myself, but my energy is still pretty darn low. I also have two very active kids in soccer and baseball, a full time job, and never ending laundry!! My husband has been good about trying to help around the house, but it still seems like there is no end to the chore list!
Anyway, that's it for today. I'd love to hear from any of you and maybe add some friends to my list! I mean, who can't use a new friend! Take care and God Bless, Deni
The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.
P.S. I add the ticker manually....surely I don't have to do that everytime!!
