Two Weeks PostOp

Dec 31, 2009

I survived!  I'm 2 weeks postop and feeling great.  I've lost 19 pounds since surgery, but only 1 pound in the last 3 days, so I may have hit a stall.  I know stalls will happen and it's a natural reaction that my body will go through.  It has gotten a little frustrating since at first you see 2, 3, 4 pounds drop each day, then nothing. 

I'm on full liquids now and have eaten sugar free popcycles, sf pudding, yogurt, mashed potatoes, potatoe soup, refried beans, grits, and oatmeal.  I can't wait to start mushies on 1/6/10.  Casseroles here I come!

I can't eat very much, but what I eat is very satisfying.

I'm trying to do the Wii at least 4 days a week and last night I started lifting weights with my arms (2lbs only) to fight the flabby arms in the future.

I am so happy I got my sleeve.  I can't wait for what 2010 will bring!

Happy New Year to me!

6 Days Left

Dec 10, 2009

I have 6 days until my surgery.  I'm getting very nervous about it and the changes it will bring to my life.  I've made lots of changes so far and I hope my surgery will help me stick to those life changes.  I've been on the protein shake diet for 3 weeks now and I've lost about 10 pounds.  I'm down to 272.  My emotions are rollcoastering from excitement to anxious to guilt to scared.  I know I can do this and I know God has planned this for my life and I must use this new life chance to bring honor and glory to Him.  I've given control to him so that I can have peace.  I will be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister friend, and employee after this surgery. And to be able to shop in regular stores will be great, too!

Thanksgiving Plan

Nov 24, 2009

I've been on my protein shake diet for 1 week now and I've lost about 5 pounds.  I have a shake for breakfast and lunch, an apple with my lunch shake, a protein bar for afternoon snack and a sensible dinner.  Tomorrow, Thanksgiving, I will be swapping dinner for the yummy Thanksgiving lunch.  I am not going to pound the food like I used to.  Sensible smaller portions.  My surgery date is 12/16/09 and I've soooooo excited!!!  My husband is excited too, I think, but he is very scared and worried about the surgery.  He is a worry wart anyway.  I have two twin girls who will turn 3 on Jan. 8th., and I work full time as the controller for a company.  Time is very valuable.  I have to keep telling myself that I WILL be successful with this!!!  Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Surgery Date is December 16, 2009

My surgery date has been scheduled for 12/16/09.  I'm so excited and scared.  I have my nutritional counseling tomorrow along with the preop nutritional class.  I am assuming I will go to the liquid diet after tomorrow.  I've purchased a Wii and worked my way up to 12 minutes on the Wii Fit.  I have twin 2 year old girls, so time is very limited. My current weight is 280 and I'm 5ft 7in.   I pray that God will be with me throughout this process and I can remain positive and successful.
