sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have been BUSY. I wanted to tell ya something about the "Walk from Obesity". I took a picture with someone and the woman who took the picture asked if I wanted to see it. Well I looked ( keeping in my head, "HELL NO" I'm HUGE in every pic. I have ever taken) Anyway, I looked and tears came to my eyes. I had on some shorts that were 2 sizes too big, a shirt that was just right XL, and a light jacket that was huge on me too. And then I pulled out a picture of me in May 2007. When I tell you it looked like two different people. I am so glad I had this surgery. And THANK YOU GOD FOR ALLOWING ME TO GO THROUGH THIS WITHOUT ANY COMPLICATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm getting so aggravated

I met with my nut the other day and she was in such a hurry to go pick her kid up that I couldn't ask her any questions. She wants me to keep a food diary and count calories and proteins. Do they make a book for dummies, for counting and reading nutrition labels. I work so much that I am going to have to start drinking protein drinks instead of eating soft food. I never have time to eat. I went 4 hours the other night without anything to eat or drink. Thats not good. But I work in the ER so some nights you never get a break....
I did something exciting today though. I had to wear a belt with my jean shorts b/c they were too big. Wish I would have taken a picture I thought I looked cute..... Well I did get a face shot though.....
3 weeks out, WOW!!!!

I am down 32 lbs. I am 66.6 lbs from my first goal. I have no regrets at all for having this WLS. I love my life now. I can walk 1-2 1/2 miles without getting short of breath. My GF said I don't snore anymore. Which is good..... I can eat just about anyhing I want as long as it is soft. I see my surgeon in December. He said I should have lost 30 more pounds by then, equaling 50- 55lbs lost. I am doing good at work with working my 12 hour shifts. My water intake is not the best, neither is my protein intake. But I am working on that. I am eating high protein soft foods though. I put on a pair of shorts the other day and they were hanging off my but. I have lost alot of weight on my backside. More than on the front. But I am satisfied with there I am right now. Well I feel myself starting to get a headache so I will go now................

Hope everyone is good. I sure am. Well I have my ups and downs. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me and kept me in your thoughts. Thaank you Shawana and Jennifer for calling an d checking on me and plus putting my update on here. I remember beng rolled in to the OR and arms out like Jesus on the cross. Then I was in my room about 4:30. Dr. M said everything went well.
I had alot of visitors my first night. I got up and walked after they all left though. I got up about 3 times the first night and Weds, I was up numerous times walking. I think I walked so much I made myself nauseated (sp?) So they gave me something for that, plus it knocked me out.
Dr. M came and saw me at 7:00 this morning, and released me. I finally left around 10:30am.
My calves are about to kill me though. And I walked ALOT so I'm not sure whats wrong. I'm gonna call Rita the nurse tomorrow if its not any better.
I need to start writing down he times and oz. I drink so I can keep up with it.
Well I think I am going to take a pain pill and get some rest. Talk at you guys later.
Until then I'm gonna be
TODAY IS MY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today (saturday) I have been so depressed. I just want to cry. Me and my gf got into a big argument. And it was not even that serious. I can't understand why she would say the things she did. But hey maybe she was right about everything. I don't know.
All is well...

in the the body of Dana Frederick. I went from 283.3, to 279.6, to 277.2. Did you hear me 277.2. WEWHEWWWWW!!!!!! Do you know how long it has been since I have been under 280. OMG!!! Forever I think. And it is only going to get better from here. I went to my pre-surgical appt today and I had kinda oversleep but was there on time. Anyway, they had to draw blood and they had to stick me twice, because I had not drank my protein drink or water. But besides that I was fine and everything went fine. Dr. Norton explained to me what they were going to do the day of surgery, what meds to stop taking to prep for surgery. I am getting so excited I can't stand it. Well until next time...............

When I tell you Im so sick of Chocolate CIB and Chocolate protein shakes, I mean gagging everytime I talk a swallow. I don't get paid until next friday so therefore I have to deal with this Chocolate $hit. However, I'm not hungry. I am going out of my 4th day of liquids, and I am suprised. I mean don't get me wrong I will open the cabinet and frig and see something, I ask myself "hhmmmm can I have that?" Knowing good and well I can't but the thought at that moment was nice. I haven't cheated but have been very tempted. I am also eating sf jello sf icepops, and broth. Anyone else have any other advice of what I can have. I know I can have yogurt and pudding but I'm not really feeling that.
