The Scale is moving again!
Sep 10, 2009Well 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
I can smell Twoterville!
