  1. Stomach feels a little sore/tired today. I guess it's hard healing with me putting food and drinks in it all day long!

  2. This weekend's adventures too me to NOLA.... and the Quarter. Friday night did a dinner cruise on the steamboat Natchez, Hit all the hot spots, Saturday spent the day walking the streets, went see miss Audrey for a card reading, went to Gretna Fest (only to find out that Lynard Skinard cancelled), and sunday and nice brunch at The Court of The Two Sisters..

  3. Down 46 lbs. Pants are getting looser, will likely have to break out the "skinny pants" box from the back of my closet this week. Have a HUGE pile of clothes to donate to a friend who had VSG and is having wardrobe challenges.

  4. So as of this morning...4.5 months after my surgery I am down a total of 80 pounds!! 80 POUNDS!!! Can you believe it??!!! I actually wore a size 10 jeans out to dinner last night! (okay they were big 10s but they were 10s)....on the day of surgery I wore a size 22 to the hospital. I wonder when my amazement will wear off? I hope it never does!!! Everyone have a great weekend!!!

  6. Hmmm.... Got some theories to test out.

  7. Today (Day 2 at home after surgery) we got out of the house and went to Sam's Club and the grocery store. I have been sipping water and powerade zero all day and will get to 32 oz by the end of the day. I've had 1/2 cup of beef broth with some unflavored protein powder. So far, so good.

  8. Feeling sassy and perky in my first ever Victoria's Secret Bra! Lovin' the NSV!

  9. I exceeded all of my fluid and protein goals yesterday! Let's see what Day 3 post-op holds!

  10. Leftover spaghetti squash and turkey meatballs thrown into into a delicious beef and tomato broth makes one of the best easy and amazingly yummy soups I've ever made! I don't know what smells better, my soup or the garlic chicken and red potatoes baking in the oven. ^_^

  11. Today is my 2 year anniversary! I have been maintaining for over 6 months now. Yay!

  12. Keep your fingers crossed for me....On Friday I finally had an epidural injection in my thoracic spine to try to get my mid back and rib pain to improve. This particular pain has been plagueing me for 1 1/2 years following my cervical fusion. Yesterday was the first time in 1 1/2 years that I had NO pain! Today I have pain but it is mild and totally tolerable. It takes a full week before you know the results of an epidural completely but I am so very hopeful that we finally found the cause and have treated it properly.

  13. Well good news! I appealed that $2300.00 charge for my 18 month nutritional panel and I got a call from the insurance company today. They said they would review it if I got the doctor to change the coding from bariatric follow up to a routine lab code. So, I called my PCP today who I sent a letter to explaining their screw up and she promptly changed the coding for me. Lets hope now that the insurance company does what they are supposed to. I have already paid the 2300.00 bill and would love to get that money back. It is money I simply dont have to spend on lab work. Cross your fingers.....

  14. Been working like a crazy fool! Decided I would take a break and make some grilled BBQ chicken, Brocoli/Cauliflower casserole! Now I am full and happy and could sleep for 3 days.

  16. Feeling excited! I just started my own consulting business and had my final interview with my first client. It went very well and most importantly I did not have to deal with them trying to reduce my rate, at least so far. Keep your fingers crossed.

  17. Ugh, I am in terrible back pain today. Here's hoping for a better tomorrow. See what happens when I over do!

  18. Three down, four to go!

  19. Well I can't eat Watermelon!! Holy Shits!!

  20. I haven't been around much! I started school Monday and let me tell you, this has been one of the longest weeks of my life. It feels like Monday was weeks ago. I have two 12-hour days and two that are at least 6 hours but will almost always be closer to 10 hours after factoring in studio time. Bring it on! This workload is huge and intimidating but I'm truly loving it. I do have a slight problem, though... I've been horrible about getting calories/water in. I'm going to have to figure out how to balance this new life... D:

  21. I think I lost all my tailbone cushioning, hurts to sit for periods of time! Owww

  22. planning to go through the closet and get rid of all the "fat" shoes this weekend. then, I'll know what I need to buy.

  23. Gonna play with my sausage n' ballz on this glorious afternoon. Also gonna smoke some herb. whilst doing so. Hoping for epic results. And, no....sadly this isn't an undertaking that directly involves sex or illegal stuff......yet it may lead to the former if I do it right. Check my grilling thread for updates. Hope all have a great Friday. Some of us may even be having a Freaky Friday.

  24. I am so hella sick of protein shakes. Having to force myself to drink them to get my protein, as the powder makes pre-made pudding and yogurt taste funny. Won't get cleared for puree/soft until Wed afternoon. I'll get through this, but last night I seriously wanted to suck the salt off of a cracker my hubby was eating. LOL. Chew and spit makes more sense in my head now. LOL

  25. Three down, four to go!
