    A mouse in the house

    Surgery was 4.5 weeks ago. Tonight Joshua, my 21 year old son turned on the oven tonight to make some dinner. The smoke detector went off, and the kids found a "broiled" mouse in the oven. I guess I haven't been doing alot of baking since surgery. I found it very funny, the kids not so much. Just another chapter in this weight loss journey

    one month

    one month out, 40 lbs lighter, my grandmother died, I feel exhausted and painful. no NSAIDS or steroids for another 2 weeks. I have dropped one pant size, but I don't feel any lighter. I don't have buyers remorse, but I thought I would feel better than this. I still take 1-2 hour naps every day after work, but is that really so bad. I spoke with the exercise therapist, and am working on strengthening my back, walking a bit more during marching band rehearsal, I just thought I would bounce back quicker. I do feel better every day, I just want it to happen faster.
  3. Hi I am now 5 weeks out. I am getting enough Protein, but liquids seem to be my problem. I used to love drinking water, now I can't stand it. I have tried it ice cold, room temperature, filtered, bottled, flavored, but it just all seems to make me nauseated. Does anyone have any ideas about how to get more liquid in. I am supposed to be drinking 64 oz, but struggling to get 40 oz. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks Karen

    tired of water, what to drink?

    thanks for all the ideas I hadn't thought of sugar-free popsicles, I did try propel zero grape flavored. That worked well. I am getting back on track with my fluids, I'm glad we have a place to bounce around suggestions. Karen

    Scale hasn't moved in WEEKS!

    I'm sorry this is happening to you. I also hit a STALL at week 3-4. Finely this week the scale went down 2 lbs, And yet like you, I am down one pant size. We need to trust that the process will work. We didn't gain this weight in one month, so it will take longer than a month to come off I'm glad we have a place where we can vent Yet support each other in this adventure Keep doing what you are doing, good things will follow Karen

    This is soooo weird....

    I also was sleeved 11 days ago. I am still on liquids and am getting soooo hungry for something to chew on. food commercials are beginning to haunt me. A big greasy pizza sounds so good. I'm sure if I tried to take one bite, I would immediately throw up. Thank God for my sleeve. I just need to get past the "head" hunger. I go to the dr's soon, so I hope starting "mushies" will help.

    Good luck July 12 sleevers!

    Hi everyone, I'm home, and all I feel is full. I was really nauseated the 1st day, but now I am just full and a little bit tired. It now takes me an hour to eat a "meal" instead of 2 gulps. I am taking it easy, tryin to get alot of rest. I hope all is going well with all of you, nap time here I come. Karen

    1st day of June, and a new Journey

    Today is June 1st It is also the first day of a long and winding road. My life feels like it has been rolling downhill, out of control. I am ready to put a halt to this path, turn a corner, and discover something new. I'm looking for a new, healthier, sassy woman who weighs 160 lbs. The problem is that the person walking on this road is 350 lbs and feels trapped in a body that can't move. I decided to look into gastric sleeve surgery after speaking with my PCP. I have seen the internist, surgeon, behaviorist, GI doc, and the sleep specialist. I have been scoped upper/lower, labs drawn, ekg done, and after speaking with GHP (dr's office) I have been approved. I will find out my surgery date tomorrow. I have informed my sister of this decision, but no one else in my family. I am not ready to discuss this with anyone else until the date is set. I am going this for me, I want to have my new path set, then I will include the kids, siblings, and parents. I am looking out into my back yard. The leaves on the trees are dancing in the wind. The sun is shining, it is 73 degrees and windy. It is a perfect late spring day. It really feels like I am starting something new today. It hasn't seemed real until today. It is the first step of a new Journey.
  16. Hi everyone, I just found this website and am encouraged by what I see It sounds like we are all going to have a busy summer. I just found out today that my insurance has approved the gastric sleeve, I will find out my surgery date tomorrow. My surgeon is scheduling for the 1st week in July so I will find out all the details tomorrow. Good luck to all Please keep in contact. Kamay1234
