Just another day in Paradise

Dec 10, 2007

Well I am now 3 months and a few days out from surgery.  I think I have lost 47 pounds now.  I really think I look different in the face anyway.  It is that time of year for the goodies to come out, and I will just do my best with them.  I plan on eating some, but not all the time like I would have done in past years.  First Christmas party went well, but this week it is in Savannah and they have some goooood food there.  Oh well this is why I chose to have GSV instead of RNY, I like to have my sweets and eat them too.

Well I made it through my first holiday.  I had a few goodies but not enough to make myself crazy.  I decided to go back to the first of the year and put in  my weight loss for the year so far, I can't believe I have lost 55 pounds since January 1.  I am so glad that I had the surgery, I know I would never have done it myself.  Now if I could just get into that exercise....

Almost 3 moths out

Nov 19, 2007

Well with almost 3 months behind me I have to say I feel great.  Chicken can still give me issues but the last couple of weeks have been good.  I am getting in lots of protein maybe not 70 grams but close most days, water is a day to day thing.  I was on a cruise for 17 days with a couple of extra days in Venice Italy and came home 4 pounds less, what a great vacation.  I do worry about the holidays and my eating, but have decided it is what it is.  I will do my best, but I will not deprive myself of anything.  I am really glad I chose to have the sleeve done and not the band as I first had decided. 

One week out

Sep 08, 2007

Well I made it through the first week.  I get close to my 70 gram of protein but 100 oz of water, come on.  I do about 64 oz a day, so I feel good with that.  Tuesday I get to stop blending food and eat it regular.  I am still a bit confused on soft food, how the heck do you eat soft chicken??  I am going to try dark meat chicken and see how I do.  I really don't get that hungry and I could just grab a cup of tea or a glass of water and any hunger I have is gone.  I will be glad to have this chewable vitamins done at the end of the month. Yuck.

Well Friday was my surgery day.  I spent all Friday night with the dry heaves so I was really sore.  Saturday was a full nausea day.  Dr. Perez says this surgery is know for nausea.... Sunday I had no nausea but even drinking is like trying to get a gallon of water down with every sip.  I can start purred foods today,as if anything even sounds good.
