    March Roll Call!

    I just returned home from having surgery on 03/09/12. I feel suprisingly well. I am a bit sore around the main insicion but overall feel better than expected. I am going to take it easy and enjoy the rest of my spring break. It feels good to be on this side of the surgery!

    Pre-Op Prep

    VSG scheduled 03/09/12 with Dr Almanza in TJ Flights and hotels are booked Read books, blogs, multiple diet recommendations for pre-op and post-op eating Starting the kitchen cleanse in stealth mode so daughter doesn't notice an abrupt change in pantry items Healthier meals started for family Making a list of vitamins, supplements and OTC meds to have on hand for post-op needs Food funerals over except Valentine's dinner when I will have wine and large meal/dessert for last ime before pre-op diet begins Smart phone app installed for ease in tracking nutrients, activity, and weight - need to start using during pre-op diet so I can get used to using it Need to deep clean house now so I will not feel urge to do so post-op and hurt myself Much more to do but thrilled to be in action mode instead of state of indecision!
  5. I am excited and eager to get to TJ. I am 4 weeks away from the surgery so I'm starting to prep by cutting out the easiest stuff for me (carbonated drinks and caffeine). I am getting into the habit of seperating liquids from my meals so I am used to it when the time is right. I am also gradually saying goodbye to some fast food favorites. I plan to spend the next couple weeks decreasing carbs and increasing proteins. I am also going to sample some protein drinks now so I can have a better idea of what to have on hand later.
