    02CDMB got a reaction from XYZXYZXYZ1955 in What Was Your Final "straw That Broke The Camels Back"   
    As many have said before me, there are several straws that have broken my camels back. For me it is just being tired of being tired & feeling like crap all the time. I have three German Shepherds that I would love to walk but there is too much pain in my back and hips to tolerate it. I have recently discovered the restaurant booth issue. I have always been the one to ask for a booth because they are more comfortable. Not anymore!! Not only are they not comfortable but when I look across at my husband and see that he has a huge amount of room between him and the table even after I pushed the table over, is ridiculous. I have also recently discovered Facetime which is awesome because I get to see my daughter while I am talking to her but ugh, why do I have to see myself as well! I despise having my picture taken and for some reason, people who are not obese do not seem to understand that. I have been outright rude sometimes to avoid it & have had to practically beg to not have my picture shared on Facebook. I don't want to be that person anymore. I am tired of having to sit on a stool to fix dinner or do dishes. I am tired of having to take breaks when I am cleaning house. I have been in denial for way too long. I have used food and alcohol to avoid dealing with myself. I am ready to find a way to love myself. I was actually just recently promoted at work. I was completely blown away by this promotion because of my self-image issues, I didn't think I had a chance. I started my WL journey in Dec 2015 and am not looking back. I believe that 2016 will be my year to shine. I am half way through my 6 month diet/exercise program and have the sleep study in May. After that I will hopefully be scheduled for surgery in July. I have read this entire feed and I am so grateful for everyone's input. A lot of what has been said really hits home for me & I wish you all the best of luck in your WL journey.

    Having my surgery this morning. Wow, this has been a long time coming. Six months of preparing & research. I'm very nervous about this. I know it's the best thing for me but that doesn't take away from the enormity of it. Please keep me in your thoughts today.

    Day two post op. Everything went very well. Had my swallow test this morning all was well. They showed me the X-ray of my new pouch. It's about the size of an egg. I did get a drain which will be removed tomorrow &a catheter which was removed today. Pain is tolerable today. But as I was coming off of the anesthesia the pain was really bad & very bad nausea as well. They worked quickly to get them both under control. Getting the drain out tomorrow & going home. I have also done a great deal of walking.

    My AF will probably come in the middle of surgery this Wednesday. Having trouble with the pre-op diet. Had a lot going on this week traveling for work. It's not easy doing this when your not at home. I have fallen off the wagon several times this week. I feel absolutely terrible about it. I almost feel like I don't deserve the surgery. Almost!! I cannot wait to get on the other side of this so I can start my new life!!

    People who constantly complain about their job but yet don't want to do anything to change their circumstances and then treat me like crap when I decide to improve my situation and then try to tell me that my promotion was only a level move instead of upward. Funny how this level move will be paying me more and also giving me annual bonuses! Hm!
    People using the diesel pump at the gas station when there are clearly other pumps open to use.
    People who write that they are loosing weight instead of losing weight! Sorry guys, I had to add that one!

    Smoking certainly does bother ulcers, and can even be part of the cause of them. I quit smoking two years ago, and I have never looked back. I used an e-cig to quit, and started with nicotine juice and within 6 months went to no nicotine. I vaped until last October and then that was all she wrote. I wasn't even planning on having surgery at the time I quit.
    Good Luck.
