The Scale is moving again!

Sep 10, 2009

Well I'm 9 days out from band removal to RNY.  I have to thank God for a really good, uneventful surgery and no pain.  I went to see my primary care Doc. today just to catch him up on what has happened and when I got on the scale I could not believe my eyes.   I started my preop diet 7 days before surgery and I weighed in at 341 and weighed in on surgery day at 332, came home full of IV fluids and weighed 345 and today when I went to my Doc I weighed 318 on his scales.  Mind you I don't care for his scales because it has always weighed me 5 lbs more than the surgeons scale.  Today I am estatic!  My scales have been weighing me totally wrong so I guess I will stay off of them. 

That's all for now... I found a way to get in lots of protein.   I really like Glucerna, butter pecan supplement.  It has 200 cals per 8 oz but I can sip on it for a long time until l can get it all down.  Yesterday I started adding a scoop of unflavored protein powder to on the bottles and the taste did not change.   By doing that I upped the protein from 6g to 26 so two of those in a day and I have had 52g of protein.   Hey it works    

Until later!

I can smell Twoterville!
