Oct 01, 2010

It is now September 30th.,2010 and 2 year ago today I under went my surgery and I'm a total of 155 lb lighter. I do bounce back and forth within 5 to 7 lb depend on the holiday and going to outing with church member, family and friends. But you have to let go once in a while knowing that I must be accountable after an outing. My husband in very supporting and does not rag on me for how I eat or don't eat. I make sure everything I eat is some kind of protein. I eat veg. every day and stay away from bread as much as possible.  I do eat sweets now and than but take that in to consiceration when eating the rest of the day. I hope this help someone and that you can enjoy life as I have been able to do since my surgery. O yes, I was excepted for a knee replacement since my weight loss so I not in a wheel chair yet. PRAISE GOD. To him I owe all. And a big thanks to Teresa for making me stick to my exercise for my knee or I would not have the great use I have of it, even my surgon can't believe the flesability I have with my replacement, I have 100% sureage of it.

Merry Christmas

Hello family and friends,

     I want to take this time to say Hello and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It has been a long 3 month since

surgery and at time's it's been really ruff. I started home on October3 with Bud's help and made it fine with the OH bear 

between me and  the seat belt to protect my surgery  ports. For the first month it was nothing but liquid and ice. Month

2 was mush food as instructed by Dr. Avara. This went pretty good. By month 3 (December) I was in trouble. I could not

keep anything down hardly at all. Dr. Avara found out I had a blockage in my esophagus and had to take me back to surgery

to open up my trough so I could eat again. This took another 2 week to try to get back to some kind of schedule of eating.

Today I can happily report I'm eating and going the YMCA as part of my Christmas present so I can continue to swim since

it has gotten cold down here and mine is close for the winter. It also has bikes and tread mills for walking since our winter

consist of rain not snow (bummer). I have lost to date a total of 80 pounds since the start of my journey in June. I have lost

total of 53 since surgery.  So please continue to read my blog and keep in touch. God Bless you all Merry CHRISTmas.

                                                             LOVE TO ALL, Linda

One week away.
