It's SOO hard to believe it's ALREADY been 11 months since my re-birthday! WOW! Time flies! I spent my surgiversary doing something that I NEVER could have done last year at this time! I helped my brother and a good friend move! My friend lived in a 3rd floor apartment! I ran those flights of steps more times than I could count! It's amazing that last year, I dreaded going to visit her because her apt was on the third floor and those steps just about killed me! This year, I was hauling bookcases and boxes and whatever else I could lift down those stairs! AMAZING! We spent about 5 hours moving furniture and boxes! I'm pretty happy that I was able to work for that long! I counted that as my exercise for the day.....btw! haha!
My stomach ulcer, or lack of one, seems to be doing well now. I am still on the Prevacid, but when I saw Dr Loggins as the post-op support group last Thursday, he said I could try going off the Prevacid and see how I do. He said I should know the warning signs if I need to go back on it. So, I will give it a try here soon.
Weight-wise, I am pretty much maintaining. I fluctuate between a low of 118.8 and about 122 or so. I still weigh daily ( I know, I know.........not good!) The fluctuations kinda drive me nutty, but I'm trying not to let them get me down. I know my weight can vary from day to day, so I'm just weighing to keep myself in check, pretty much. I decided not to do measurements this month as I don't think they've changed that much. I will definitely measure and post a picture next month at my 1 year surgiversary.
The one thing that is bugging me at this point is that my mind is still craving those carbs and I've started to have some actual hunger. It kinda bugs me because I know that I have to control what I eat and I was sure hoping that I would never feel hunger again.........yeah, right......I SHOULDA known better from all the research I had done. It IS up to me! I KNOW what I need to do and how I need to eat, so I'll just keep at it and control things as much as I can!!!!!! I KNOW I can do this because I NEVER want to be where I was last year at this time!!!!!! NEVER!!!!!!!!!!
So...........time marches on.............as do I!!!!!!!!!
