April 22 Dr , APP to get B12 shots

Apr 22, 2010

I went to Dr Allen my gp to get b12 shots started she said they dont really encourag e them anymore and people dont like them I wouldnt want them lalalal, any way so  that aside I am taking my supps at home as I have been, so no change there.
  However BIG NEWS!!! My BP was 125 over 75 and I am able to get rid of one of my bp meds!!!! As if that werent enough I am also changing my anxiety depressionmeds for a new one and a smaller dose. I m going to try it and see if it all goes well if so its good!!!!!!!  So exciting!! The lower dose ands=change in meds should help with the weight loss also because well its a lower dose/ I went to visit where I worked with people over 18 years and I got so many compliments!!! Isnt it great ! I love my RNY!

protein shakes are bleckkkkk, not doing it anymore for a while,

Apr 17, 2010

I am hating the protein shakes they make me nauceous so I am not dinking them  for a week now,I will go back to them when I feel I can, I am making sure all meals are protein based though and taking all my pills etc., feel good. I am also walking daily 1-2 hours just a relaxed walk but a walk none  the less. I did miss two days this week but every other night i did my bit. Bought a new pair of good cross trainers New Balance 552's they are mens because I need the width and size, they are tres cumfy and I wore them all day yesturday. My feet never got sore! It was fantastic...My dog is exhausted all the walking but I do walk with different people all the time so they dont get tired out.  lol.
ALso I bought a new smaller bra yesturday now Im not sure if its the right size exactly but I started out with a 46 plus extender (3inches) , ddd and ee and the one I am wearing now is a 42 d no extender! It may be alittle small in the cup for now but thatll change. I think because I am walking more I have slowed in weiht loss but probably not in inches because I am building muscles back that used to be there . My butt is getting smaller and my legs are definately more toned, my arms I will have to work separately on when Im allowed back at the gym, also all the wlaking has helped tone my backa nd a little of my stomache as you always use your stomache muscles to walk upright! lol!  My nech and face have definatley lost poundage and inches, I now have  a defined waist again all be it a big one. I wore my jeans yesturday tha I havent worn in ages and I tried to put them on a coupel wks ago they wee still tight. I put them on yesturday with ease and the button did up with room to spare! How exciting!!! I put on a belt and tucked my top in. It may not have been that pretty to the rest of the world but damn it I am not hiding these new curves of mine ! ITs been awhile since my waist was smaller thn hips!  Everybody MUST know!

2 week checkup

Apr 06, 2010

Had my checkup today at Dr Sohi's office, and made a couple of house calls whilst in the To area. My hunny and I went to HRRH to deliver a "Pen Plant" An invention of mine to say thanks to all of the nursing and docs and everyone on fifth floor, as when we needed to borrow pens a couple of times we were allowed under strict rules to return ASAP as they supply their own, I bought a pretty clay pot tied a bow on it, stuck some artificial oasis in the bottom and 2 bags of pens  all over some wrapped in green ribbon and about 20 silk pansy blooms , they all thought it was great! I was happy to do such a small thing.
Then we ran into Dr Glazer;, on our way to the elevator and I delivered his Thank you card for making sure I got through it all in one piece and not forgetting I was a person too, And I made an appointment with the Nut because I was told on the phone I would be into May before appointment I was very dissatisfied as I will be on solids by then and I d really like to know what I should be eating and not waste a month not wasting away (LOL) , In person  I had no probs and my app is April 29! woot WOOT! Same day as my sleep study so that's a nice tie in.
 Then we went to price chopper and I found out that I can eat Tuna ! YEAH ME and keep it down more importantly!  ! 
I also found some SF rice pudding by jello in the fridge section Creme Brulee flavour! YUM MO!
  I went to my appointment we waited an hour and half, saw Dr for 5 m which in retrospect am VERY glad I didn't wait 5 m and see the doc for 1 and a half hours because that would have meant something was wrong. !  He is happy with my progress. Everything sounds good t o him he weighted me and I'm on my way! 
Half way home we stopped in Cobourg Wally world and found some "click" espresso-latte protein shakes on sale from 17.98 to 10 clearance price. Bought one to try , have found I only like them for a short while then I need a diff flavour best not to stock up any one kind. I had half of one in the car. ti was OK but apparently can also be enjoyed hot so will try that maybe tomorrow. who nose! (lol) Also got the b12 strips that melt on your tongue, took that for first time. tasted OK . Dr gave out I wasn't already doing that! oops! all over it now! app To see GP for monthly  B12 shots instead. 
 I came home and had some yummy crab meat salad I made and yesterday I ate same thing only didn't puree today I did puree and added some red pepper but it was ewe! today. It tasted really good then i didn't feel well.so maybe to rich when it is pureed?? 
I then laid down for a short while,went to  chapters to check on recipe books called "hungry Girl" which all three look quite  appealing and two more that I'm interested in about eating after Geriatric surgery, recipes etc! Although I couldn't buy any because my tummy wouldn't even allow me to think much about the foods in them. SO maybe Ill go another day but I would like to research more what the barriatric books have in them to decide which one is best. I will let you now which one I have chosen and hat wonderful things I am making! :) 

Well I do not feel very well right now

Mar 25, 2010

 I know veeryone is so hppy nd thankful so I feel kind of poopy complaiining . I had my surgery on March 19. I was so excited! I couldnt wait. Now I feel really crappy . I am tired and full and thirsty but I cant get enough in  to drink. I got up this am and got kids to school. had my breakfast, 1/4 c oatmeal, 1/8 (?)c yoguert, my coversyl, sertraline,multi, my reactine and my indapamide,a little water and a serving of tomato juice, I had a shower, i had a nap cause  id idnt feel well. ANd m side hurts I feel really full. I woke up went and had my blood test for potassium cand a coupl eof other things to do, had a  tomato juice and 1/2 single serve cottage cheese. then i came home I was giong to go right to bed but I was afraid I d get sick if I didnt eat more. So a Had about 1/8 potato soup, and 1/2 c protein shake. went to bed. slept all aft. I woke up evry thirsty and still full. I think I am over indulging still for the size of my tummy. I think you have afalse sense of not being full whne in hospital because they give you antiinflammatories, out of hospital you do no get them, I havent gotten sick but a coupel of times since surgery I have had the sweats, mild cases, like Im overexcerting myself, i dont think it was a dumping issue. I just want to feel better.
