So this last thursday I had to go in for an EGD because my surgeon was concerned that I'm having trouble with all foods but lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions. (salad fixings) Everything else no matter how little I eat, and I start to get sick or

Woke up to being 198.4 this morning. I'm so proud. It has taken me forever to get to this major goal. Next major goal is to get to 180 so I will no longer be obese and instead I'll just be overweight! :) That never sounded so good to me. Next minor goa

I just got myself some pistachios. I ate about 1oz of them, and oh sweet mercy did I get sick. It did everything to me the same as when I get dumping syndrome. How in the world did I get this off of nuts? Just lightly salted pistachios. Nothing else on

Finding food to eat lately has been extremely hard for me. I can eat chicken, and different types of salads. (like green leafy salads, iceberg, coleslaw type (minus the slaw sauce) and I can eat a little cheese and those tuna packets. Outside of these

325 hw, 296 surg. weight (8/7/17), personal goal was 240 by Christmas. 2 days to go and I just hit 240. Honestly I feel like I'm loosing slow compared to everyone I read about here. But, considering all things I can't be too upset. Just got through a s

My vit. D was only 10 so Now I'm on D3 capsules. Much smaller than I thought, and if I open them up it has the crushed powder inside. Having some big trouble swallowing them. I took one and it feels like it sits in 1 spot for 30+ min. I doubt it is, bu

Got bloodwork done, other than my cholesterol being only slightly high (just .4 over normal) my Vit. D was 13. Yes I know that is extremely low and normal starts at 30. I have always had trouble with my vit D even before surgery, but now it's even hard

I have officially hit my first mini goal today. 250 lbs is where I'm at right now. I told my husband once I hit 250 I would have a little celebration. I'm so happy to be here right now, and while it's been hard. I'm proud of myself. I may still have tr

I find there are so many foods I just can't handle now. I was somewhat lactose intolerant before, now I'm VERY lactose intolerant. I can't handle mayo, certain mustard, anything breaded (like chicken), eggs (unless it's eggbeater brand), bread is even

Some things I have noticed now that I'm 7 weeks post-op.

  1. My bottom feels like it has zero padding anymore, no matter how little i sit, where I sit, it doesn't stop reminding me that my body is changing and oh my gosh does it get sore.

I've had the inability to have a BM (sorry TMI) for over a week now. So I went and got some Milk of Mag. I took the recommended 4 tbl dose (this stuff is gross beyond all thought, it was so hard to get down without it coming right back up) I'm really h

Husband and I went to the store around midnight to pick up a few things of powerade zero, some yogurt, cottage cheese, and some stuff for him. Probably spent around 10-15 min walking. Came up to the front of store and had to stand in line. While I was

Woke up this morning and weighed in at 267. That's 28 lbs down from 296 is what they had listed for me a little before surgery. For the first time in years I didn't wear sweats to the store. I was in a pair of pants that used to feel a lot tighter than

Nothing sounds good. I try eating what is avail. to me and nothing tastes good. I can drink hot liquids without too much trouble, but trying to get in just water has been an issue for me. When drinking just water or even some powerade zero, I get these

Slept quite a bit yesterday for some reason. I did get in a good amount of protein almost 34oz and did quite good on liquid so far, but today I feel a little spacey.

I'm not dizzy, just feel a bit uncoordinated, and of course I woke up with a b

Just sitting here, nervous and excited and can't wait for this to all be done and healing lol. Got about 1 1/2 hours before I have to head out to Spokane for my surgery. Left my dog at mother in laws for the time being and I'm missing him terribly. Sle
