How great does that make a person feel to get kicked out of a group!!!  I have posted like ONCE so I don't think I said anything to piss anyone off!!!  Talk about an awesome support group there!!!

Sorry to vent! 


Fill #1...

May 20, 2009

I want to my 6 week post-op visit today.  The scale was NOT my friend today.  I have actually gone up a pound since last month.  I should be thankful that I didn't gain over the past 4 weeks.  I got to the place where I could eat more than I should have been able to.  But I got my first fill today.  1.5cc is what he put in. 

I also got the schedule for the support group so I am really ready to start going to that. 

I am heading to Texas on Friday so I won't be on here for about 10 days.  I will see you all when I get back!!!  Hopefully the next time I check in, my weight will have gone a long way in the right direction!!!

I Feel Stuck...

Apr 24, 2009

Today has been one of those days where I am discouraged.  The scale isn't moving.  I am eating like I am supposed to.  I am taking my vitamins.  I am not drinking while I am eating.  I just seem to feel hungry so often.  And I feel like I can eat so much more than I should.  I am not scheduled for a fill for another 4 weeks.  So till then, any ideas? 

On a brighter note, I am going to join the gym this afternoon.  I need to get busy and start working out!  I don't want tons of excess skin that I have to have removed surgically. 



Today is Day #3...

Apr 09, 2009

since I had my band placed.  And today I feel like I have been hit by a Mac Truck!!!  I am still really sore and I don't think the way I slept last night helped matters any! 

Yesterday I ate some oatmeal and cream of chicken soup.  It tasted so good after 2 weeks of the Optifast diet!!!  I didn't have any problems with the food and all went well. 

I will write more later.  I need to get back to work!

Just A Fast Update...

Apr 08, 2009

Before I go back to bed!    lol  My surgery was yesterday and it went well.    I was able to go home the same day.  It was nice to be able to sleep in my own bed!  My surgery lasted a bit longer than expected because when Dr. Haley got in there, he found a hiatal hernia that had to be repaired before he could place the band.  Nobody was expecting that!  So I was on the table for about 2 hours.  I find that as I get older, and with each surgery that I have, that it gets harder to tolerate the anesthesia.  There were no problems, it just gets more difficult to bounce back.

I want to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and notes of encouragement.  I feel so blessed to be a part of this site and to be meeting all of you wonderful friends to go on this journey with!!!  Together we can all be extremely successful!!!

Day #2...

Mar 26, 2009

Today is day #2 of the pre-op diet.  I had a bitch of a headache yesterday because ding-dong me decided to cut all caffeine and sugar at the same time I started the OptiFast diet.  Caffeine withdrawal is not a pleasant thing!  And they say it isn't addicting!!    It is going to be a long 2 weeks on this stuff.  Eww is all I can say!  I am really glad there is an end in sight and this is all for the betterment of the surgery.  I have lost 3 pounds since yesterday.  It may be a lot of water weight, but I'm not picky!  lol  It is a step in the right direction!!!


Starting Wednesday...

Mar 23, 2009

Today has been an extremely full day!  I went to all of my pre-op visits at the hospital this morning... anesthesia, business office, pharmacy & nutrition.  Lots of information, and quite overwhelming!  :-)  Starting on Wednesday morning, I switch to an Opti-Fast diet.  800 calories a day.  WOW!!  The last time I ate 800 calories a day, my doctor got worried and put me in the hospital.  Granted I was eating 800 a day, without physician's supervision and it went on for months.  Now he is telling me to do what I got in trouble for doing before.  Can anyone say IRONY?  lol  Really, when I was doing that, it was a bad time in my life.  This is a good time... and it feels like the beginning of the rest of my life!  (Cliche I know but tue!)  So, my goal for now is to stay on this diet for the next 2 weeks.  My surgery has been scheduled for 4/8/09 at 8 AM.  I'll keep ya' informed!!!
