Its been a while since my last update so i wanted to post a little something. I am now at 307 and almost at one of my goals of being 299 by Christmas. I am feeling so much better then I was at 451. I am able to move better and balance better with having Multiple Sclerosis. I did a booboo though. I ate a half of an oat meal raisin cookie reg. and OMG no no no it came right back up in a matter of like 1 min. Take it from me when you find that you have those feelings you feel like crap but I am glad I have my tool to make me behave and remind me! I hope everyone is doing well and that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Ill try to be back to let yall know if i make my goal of 299 for Christmas! Big hugs!
Another Day in my Journey
May 31, 2013
I am now down to 375 and its slowly coming off but hey I'll take it!! I am still having issues getting in all my water its constantly sip sip sip of the water! Food still isnt so easy to get in but I am now at the phase of eating more solid foods like Salmon, Shrimp, Ground turkey/beef, over cook veggies,and protein bars. If your looking for a great tasting protein bar "The Zone" Has great bars...I was recommended to only have half because of the sugar most are a meal portion of sugar and has 12-15 gms of protein but if your on the go and cant do breakfast half is great!
I wanted to add a post I did on my facebook for anyone in Phase 3 having cravings for real tasting foods and was tired of the same ole same ole could enjoy like I did!
If you are missing spaghetti and are trying to stay away from pasta then I gotta tell ya Spaghetti Squash is a great substitute for the pasta. I took Meat balls and cooked them in spaghetti sauce low sugar of course (hunts makes a low sugar spaghetti sauce) took Spaghetti Squash (just one will feel the whole family), cut it in half salt peppered and drizzled olive oil over it, then put it face down in a 475 Oven baked for 30 mins or until you can put a ice pic or wooden skewer thru it easily. Took a spoon and scrapped it all out (it comes out like pasta strings) then let it simmer in the spaghetti sauce and meat balls for 20 mins for it to grab the flavor. Put it in a baking dish sprinkled cheese what ever you like on your spaghetti and baked it for 30 mins on 400. OMG that is lip smackin goodness!
I hope everyone is doing great!!
Post Op 2 1/2 wks!

If anyone one is looking to have this surgery be prepared! I am not saying not to have it cause I would do this all over again cause in two weeks I lost 30lbs but keep in mind before the surgery I was retaining fluids also. I still say Praise God for it though! I am now 386 and so proud to tell others my weight. I cant wait until I am down more and closer to the 2's. The first two weeks are what I call hell week like some say in college with the sororitie. If you can tough it out until soft food stage you will do fine! Once I got some soft eggs and mash potatos and yes my Dr let me have soft mashed potatoes it was wonderful. I just have to push more in the way of water and just not to over fill myself. Its easy to do being we cant have a lot. Some say to use baby spoons some say not to but for me it is helping me gage my bite size and not to take too big of bites. I say do what works for you. DO NOT LISTEN TO OTHERS NEGITIVITY!! Everyones experience is different!
Day 3 post op
Mar 15, 2013
I am starting to feel better with the soreness but its still sore. I might sound like a baby to some who have had surgery before but for me this is my first surgery so I really didnt know what to expect. It is so hard to get in all the protein and water cause i feel so full most of the time. I do keep up with my pain meds cause they take off the edge of pain. The pain isnt bad but its easier to manage and walk with taking it every 4-6 hours. I am so thankful for all the prayers and support I have had from everyone and couldnt think everyone enough!! If you are looking to have this I say do your research and be prepared for everything you can. I am one that doesnt like to not know everything before walking in so, I did my research and Thankful I did because I was prepared and ready! I am happy with everything this far and I am sure I will be more and more with each passing day.
