Post op day 14
Apr 21, 2015
It's been two weeks? Wow. Times flies when you are learning a new, healthy lifestyle! I am now down 29 pounds since I started the preop diet 4 weeks ago. I am still on full liquids but I have added baby food meats to my diet, which helps me deal with the cravings for a nice meat-forward meal. Too bad I can't barbeque it. :P Still, I am doing a good job of keeping up wiith my protein requirements and when I don't, I feel it the next day.
Two days ago I was noticing extreme fatigue. Like, get up, get the kid off to school and go back to bed for a 3-hour nap. I was exhausted by 10 pm even with the ridiculous naps, so I decided to add my sublingual B12 to my morning medication regiment, even though I should have waited until this Friday because I meet with my surgeon that day. I have had no ill effects from this and I absolutely feel less fatigue. I was able to stay up all day yesterday and I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night and took the B12 first thing this morning. It is now 1 pm and I feel great!
I am so glad I decided to take control of my health again. I was (still am) a little skeptical that this would be any different from the Lap-Band debaucle but each day I feel better and more hopeful that this is the tool I needed to help me create the body and the life that I want.
