10 Weeks Out

Sign in to follow this  


Wow, I'm officially down 50 pounds as of today! I must admit that I am not eating as much protein as I should, but the shakes are yuck! I am forcing one down as I type this blog entry. I know it's important, and I don't want to be losing muscle vs. loosing fat. My primary doctor ran some routine blood work and it came back that my kidney function was off. I googled my blood work numbers and apparently I am not getting enough protein. So anyway, shakes, here I come, yee haw (as we'd say here in Oklahoma) GO POKES! :cursing: I was going to update my pics after losing 25 pounds, but I just couldn't see the difference yet. I have decided to join a women?s walking/running club called RunnHers and train for a 5K. I am up to walking about two miles and I'm excited to take it up a notch. There is a Route 66 Marathon, half marathon & 5K run this November and I hope to run in it. I'll keep you guys posted. My two older sons, my husband and I logged 25 miles over the last two months and then ran the last 1.2 miles in downtown OKC at the OKC Memorial Marathon. It was a program for the kids and then the adults could log the miles with their kids too, so we thought, why not? IT was so awesome! I will post the pics as soon as I get them developed. Yes, I used one of those old fashioned cameras that actually have film in them. :ohmy: Good luck to everyone out there, I love my surgery and I know all of you will too!!

Thanks! Good luck with the CPAP. What health insurance company do you have? I hope the insurance company gets back w/you fast!!

I have United Health Care. The surgeon's office told me that historically they've been very good about approvals, but they usually take close to the full 30 days to respond. Oh, well - as long as I get approved. That's the important part.
