Still fighting with the scales
Dec 10, 2010
Okay, the scales haven't moved very much. I've lost another 5lbs in 2 1/2 weeks for a total of 45lbs. I lost inches though.
Total 24 inches lost!
Just a little depressed

Okay, I've only lost 35lbs since surgery. I know I should be really happy about this, but the darn scale hasnt moved in weeks. The wedding is over. I'm doing great on protein and water intake now and able to eat real food. I'm walking like crazy but still nothing is moving the scale. I guess I'll just have to wait it out, but I hope I haven't failed this too...

This past month has been a very interesting ride. First of all my daughter informed me the day of surgery she was getting married on November 6th 2010. Then, I went back into the hospital with an infection called Cellulitis. I finally talked the doctors into allowing me to go home and come back every day for IV antibiotic. We think we’re done with the antibiotic but we’re doing blood work for a while to make sure.
I’m doing well on the diet. I am having trouble with some of the proteins and getting in enough water. I have been taking Pro Slam protein shots and they seam to help. I just think the fluid thing is so hard. If I’m not thinking about fluid and meals all the time, I forget about it. Then I’m in trouble. So forget about weddings, cleaning, laundry, or shopping if it does not fit into the schedule of fluids and meals.
Even with everything that is going on, I would do the surgery over again. I have lost 32lbs since the surgery and I’m feeling much better. I’m not even thinking about shopping for a dress for the wedding until November 3rd.
Surgery Monday August 27th

Okay...I did not think I was going to be That sore. I remember laying there think..oh my what have I done. It's going to take weeks to feel better. Tuesday was better and I was able to come home yesterday. Yes I'm still sore and tired, but I'm feeling much better. I am finding it hard to get everything in that I need 70g of protein/64oz of fluids. I just not able to drink that much right now. I have a micro pouch that is about 12cc. I guess this gets better too.

After the Doctors office sent everything to Anthem on September 7th, 2010, I called everyday at least once a day but mostly twice a day. After Friday 9/17/2010, I started getting upset that I did not know anything. The lady on the phone from Anthem told me that they could NOT tell my the outcome except for in a formal letter that would be mailed to me. I just knew that something would happen and I would not get my approval or I would not get it in time. I even started getting depressed and just not happy about anything. On Sunday I decided to check the mail, not even thinking that I would have anything from Anthem but I did. It was my approval letter. I went ahead and faxed it on Sunday to my Doctors office for them to see first thing today. I am scheduled for my surgery next Monday.
