Another Day

Well, yet another day of my new life and I'm surviving. It's hard but every day is a new day. I've realized that I really need to start eating more protien. I've been eating too many carbs. Will be updating my weight in a couple weeks. Tuesday will be 3 weeks. Seems like longer, but only 1 week and 4 days until I can eat normal food.

2 Weeks Post-Op

Well, I'm two weeks out and down 17lbs. I was hoping for a little more, but I guess that's pretty good when you think about it. We made it through Christmas. So many temptations and I can't eat anything. Just mush! We had lassagna and garlic bread and homemade peach cobbler. I did lick a little of the cobbler it was so good! I had the lassagna in small small bites but without meat so it didn't taste as good. I went shopping today and got a lot of bargains. Anyways, going to go for now, will follow up soon!

Another Day

Well, according to my scale I'm down to 281.5 as of this morning with clothes. I've been doing pretty good. The eating is just so hard mentally. Knowing I can only have things that are smushed up! I want a burger or a pizza! I know with time this will go away. Healing pretty good. Still a little soar. My back is hurting more than anything but that seems to be letting up too. Will follow up again soon

Tomorrow Will Be 1 Week

Well, hard to believe tomorrow it will already be 1 week after surgery. I go for my appointment at 2. Hopefully everything is OK. I'm still sore, not using the pain meds though. The eating just sucks and is so hard but I'm managing. I'm just craving everything I can't have. Will check-in tomorrow with my weight and progress! :)

3 Days Post-Op

Well, the day has come and gone. I had the surgery on Tuesday and came home yesterday. I'm hurting a lot. Mainly when I get up and sit and when I cough. OMG that hurts. I didn't have the best experience. I lost a lot of blood so they had to give me 2 pints Tuesday night. Then I got poked for a blood check like every 4 hours for the next day. Anyways, I'm home and doing pretty good. Will try to follow up daily or every other. I want to keep up my "thoughts".

3 Days to Go

It's almost time. Just 3 days left. I've been feeling a little nautious today and I think maybe it's just nerves. It's starting to hit that I'm having major surgery Tuesday. I'm trying to keep my mind off of it, but that's easier said than done. I'm going to get a facial at 2, so I'm fixing to head up to get dressed. Just trying to get the Christmas cards finished up. Printing pictures as we speak. Will probably post tonight! :)

5 Days

Only 5 more days. Wow, so anxious, these 5 days will probably go by super slow! We went to see Santa today and Athena was having no part of that. She cried and cried. At least we got to snap the picture! Anyways, off to bed.

Pre-Op Appointment

Well, I had my pre-op appointment today. I weighed in at 307..yikes! My surgery is scheduled for Tuesday at 2:30pm. I have to be there at 10am. I will only have to stay one night. I thought it would be two, but the doctor said normally one is enough. I will be on a pureed diet for 4 weeks. There is really no limit with lifting or driving or anything, so that's good. I can't believe in 6 days it'll be time. I'm suppose to start my period Friday, which sucks, but I guess it's better I'll be almost done before the surgery....I'd hate to think of having to go throught that right after surgery. Didn't mean to share so much, but hey, you know how much I weigh I mean come on! About two weeks after surgery I'll have to start taking vitamens and a gall bladder pill. I'm not sure how long you have to take that one, if it's only for a few years or just when you're going through rapid weight loss. So Christmas dinner will be some yummy mush! :) But gosh, it will be worth it. Well, I'm watching a Primetime special, What Would You Do? So far it's pretty good. Have to wrap one more gift too. We got my dad a big thing of foreign beers for X-mas. Anyways, I'm sure I'll be posting daily now that I'm so close.

One Week Out

Well, one week from today is the day! I went and got my cashiers checks for my copay. I think that's when it really kicked in that I'm a week out! OMG. My pre-op is tomorrow at 10. It will be a group appointment and will take about 2 hours. Then after that I have to go to the hospital to register. It'll be nice because people at the appointment tomorrow will be having the surgery the same week as me. Well, I'll follow-up tomorrow with what time my surgery is.

9 Days and Counting

Well, we're at 9 days.....almost there! Today was a busy day eventhough we didn't leave the house. Let's see Jacob has friends over to play for a few hours. I got a ton of laundry done and we got the outside Christmas lights done. I had a client who I had to send out Christmas cards for, so I got those addressed today too. My friend who had the surgery brought over a bag of clothes today. Mostly shorts and T-Shirts. If I can fit into that stuff by summer I will be so super happy! She was over today and I just can't get over how great she looks. I'm so happy for her and incredibly jealous at the same time! Anyways, Pre-Op is in 3 days...going to get my cashier's checks, for my co-pay, on Tuesday.

10 More Days

Well, I'm almost there, a week and 3 days. Time is going by so fast and so slow at the same time. I'm getting very very anxious and nervous. I'm just ready to get it done and move forward. I've got the Christmas cards done, just need to put pictures in them. I think almost everything is done. Just need to mail 2 packages and then all the gifts are done.
