The Juice

I'm on day 4 of The Juice (protein shakes.) I've managed to cook for my family with their help. Tonight my husband is cooking chicken on the grill while I prepared the artichokes for the grill. I found the recipe a few months ago. http://prouditalianc...l-of-grill.html   Last night I was SO hungry that I couldn't sleep. I had to get out of bed and watch TV. My daughter was still awake and was delighted to be up in the middle of the night with Mom. Luckily it is summer break so I didn't have to get up in the morning.   Now its off to the garden. Those artichokes look totally delicious. I find its less tempting if I clear out and keep busy.

Post Op Vacation

The doctors and staff at the bariatric center tell me I can return to work after 2 weeks but can't go on vacation. This sounds a little crazy to me. If I can go and work with 26 wild 7 year olds at 2 weeks, I'm wondering why I can't go and veg in a resort in Florida. I have an appointment tomorrow to discuss this with my doc. Any ideas?

Here We Go!

After being humilated at a teacher's inservice I decided something had to be done. In February we were supposed to work on the federal government's Common Core Curriculum when the planners of the inservice thought it would be clever to play with those words and work on our 'cores.' So we were asked to do pilates to start the session off. Well, once I'm on the ground, it isn't easy or pretty to get up again. A week later, I began the journey to WLS.   It seems I've been trying to lose weight my whole life. I was a stick until about 4th grade. Ever since, I've been compared to all of my very athletic and thin siblings and relatives. I even had an uncle call me to congratulate me on the birth of my daughter who weighed 9 pounds. He ended the call with, "Have you lost any weight?" My reply was...9 pounds.   In addition to wanting to be able to move, look and feel good, and reverse my diabetes, I need to be healthy for my children. I have a 20 year old who is an amazing athlete and an adorable 11 year old. Both are often embarassed of my size. They rarely say anything but I've seen and heard comments from others. I want to be able to do things with them and have the energy to keep up with them.   I want to be active even into my 80's and 90's! So here we go!
