I have not posted in a while.  I am doing really well with my surgery.  I am presently 312 down from 375 in seven weeks.  I am getting my taste back, but still don't like to many things.  Yesterday was the first day that I actually wanted to eat.  I have only eaten because I know I need to eat.  I don't have an appetite to eat.  I am in the gym about three to four times a week.  I believe that has helped my weight lose.  My last doctor visit  on the fifth of February I was 337 and they only want me to loose forty pounds in the next two months.  I only have sixteen more pounds to loose before April  6.  I probably will loose more.  I will post a pic later.

Bad Tasting Food

Jan 26, 2009

I came upon a strange milestone.  For the last few days nothing taste good but fruit.  None of the meats I ate tasted like anything.  I have never heard anybody talk about anything like that.  Anybody ever had that?

Post Op

Jan 09, 2009

Three day post operative. Surgery went okay with no problems.  I was in the hospital for until today (1/09/09).  because they could not get a fever down and I was not releasing gas.  Day two of this I was wondering why did I do this.  Now I am on a clear diet and can drink water popsicles, and jello.Pictures will follow.

Day Before Surgery

Jan 05, 2009

Today is Jan 5, 2009 the day before my surgery. I have not slept good for two days  between the excitement of having the surgery and the fear of surgery.  My doctor have me on a clear liquid diet since breakfast.  I only had 4 oz of fruit.  I have drunk water and chicken broth.

Preop visit today

Jan 02, 2009

I had my preop appointment today.  It went great.  I have lost 7 pounds on the preop diet.  When they did an EKG my heart rate was high (113).  It does not run like that.  I really need some prayer about now that my heart rate drop to normal. 

Can't Wait

Dec 30, 2008

It is about six days from my surgery.  I have gotten so excited about it.  It is like a new birth going to happen.  I am so looking forward to loosing this weight because there are a lot of things that I can't do because of my weight.  Still fighting a cold.  My throat cleared up but there is still a little something there.  You guys pray that this leaves before Friday which is when I have my preop appointment.

A common Cold

Dec 24, 2008

I awaken this morning with a runny nose and coughing.  I'm stressing because I know that if I am sick my surgery will be postponed.  Even though it is not until Jan 6, I have been doing my best to stay well.  One of my co-workers has been sick for two weeks and came back to work.  She sits next to me in a cubicle.  I have been waiting too long for this surgery to have something this small to stop it.

Weight loss surgery seminar

Dec 17, 2008

Dec 16, 2008
Today I had to attend a four hour seminar on WLS.  One of the steps that my Doctor requires of all his patients.  Small requirement for such a great thing.  I have a preop diet to do two weeks before surgery.  My wife is part of my support group.  So to help me she is going to do the diet also.  So until later.

I got off weight watcher and gained all the weight and more back.  I had started to go to the gym but my wife got sick and they didn't know what it was.  She is better now.  So looking forward for the surgery.  Three weeks seems like eternity.

I have my surgery date

Dec 11, 2008

Today is Dec 11, 2008. Yesterday I talked with my doctor and got a surgery date of Jan 6, 2009.  After trying to loose weight for Kaiser for over three years I have Medicare and they approved me for the surgery. While waiting I was very excited but now I am very nervous.  Never been in surgery before.
