Been away for a little bit. I've been pulling my hair out as to why I have stalled completely. I first stalled at the 3 week mark then things started moving again. Now I am in another stall where I can't seem to get down past 226lb
For all of yous that struggle to get your protein in on a daily basis. I've been doing a little research with help from Google.
I found a recipe for Chocolate chip cookie dough protein balls (5.4g of protein per ball) 5 ingredients total. So he
So I bought myself a full length mirror the other week. I'm not sure what prompted me but I knew I needed it. I haven't seen my reflection in quite some time. Well I got home and installed it (one of those over the door type so it wasn't rocket science
So here I sit as my hubby drives us to his nieceâ€™s wedding reception. I am so freaked out about what I can and canâ€™t have that I made a protein shake to come with me.
I know there will be lots of my past favorites laid out before me, prosc
well im one week + 4 days post op. I can now get out of bed or off the couch without having to get my hubby to help me. I no longer wince in pain when I move. Been to see the NP and all is well. Sheâ€™s now added vitamin B to my reperto
ah home. My creature comforts around me ( not forgetting to mention my husband, love you honey) so for the most part Iâ€™m feeling ok. When I get laying down I canâ€™t get up again without yelling out in pain (enter husband here to help pull me up) one
Surgery was the easy part (at least I didnâ€™t feel it). dr Gmora decided to go with the sleeve on me as my stomach was nestled in behind my rib cage. Iâ€™m ok with that. So now the hard part. I can seldom get comfortable, I canâ€™t pee on my own, taki
So I'm sitting here at work doing my thing when I look at my desk and I just found this oddly funny. I'm used to having something on my desk to nibble on during the afternoon hours. Today I have the choice of a decaf coffee, water or beef broth. My sha
Ok peeps I really need your help here. I am on day one yes I said day one and on my third shake. I have one more to go tonight. Problem is I canâ€™t keep them down! I am sooo nauseated by them that I can barely choke them down. And if I do, they come r
for those of you that have or are going through the opti phase, how did you manage your shakes and work? Did you pre make them or take a blender with you? I am thinking about this as I finish my very first shake and type this question out.
So I called the booking clerk again on Friday, left a message again, and waited yet again. Today I got my long awaited phone call to confirm my meet and greet with Dr. Hong. I couldn't be more excited! Has anyone dealt with Dr. Hong out of St. Joeseph'
A thought just occurred to me as I wait patiently for my phone call to meet the surgeon appointment. What happens if you are declined? Who gets the horrendous privilege of letting us know that tidbit of bad news?
Thus far, I am a green light go
Omg! Omg! Omg!
i think Iâ€™m in shock. I met with the internist this morning. She went through all my medications, health history and then told me that that I have the green light to meet the surgeon!
I was driving home from my appoint
so I saw the dietician today. She has cleared me to go ahead for WLS. I just have a few tiny things to tweak such as swapping my green tea for decaf etc. No big deal.. totally doable. Now the list of pills ugh,
prenatal vitamines, got it must t
Just checking in. It's been a while since my last post. I was off work there for a bit with a bout of major depression and when it hits me, it hits hard! Thank goodness it's over and I can start to focus on me again. My doctors are t
So Iâ€™m sitting here waiting for my next appointments with the dietician and social worker with the Hamilton group. Those appointments arenâ€™t for another 2 months. Iâ€™m so excited that time seems to be at a stand still. I called for cancellations a
Here's what I have learned this week..
I cheat on a daily basis (I call it self sabotage) but I tell others that I am happily going along with their recommendations. This attitude only defines my self denial. It is harmful and also disrespectfu
I took some advice from another member and called St. Joe's in Hamilton to inform them that if there were any cancellations to please call me and wouldn't you know, the very next day I get a phone call. My nutritionist appointment has been moved up by
Good morning all,
I was at my appointment with Wharton Medical Clinic the other day and the doctor prescribed me Saxenda. It's an injectable hormone that is taken once daily. I'm wondering if anyone else has been put on this medication and what
