    I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

    5 days Post op Update:
    Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!

    As of today, I have lost 60lbs since my journey began (first WLS appt)! Most of that weight has been lost in October,  since I weighed 282 on 10/2 and I now weigh 239, (25lbs down since surgery). I can't believe it! Wish my clothes would be falling off, but not quite there yet. I'm super excited about the progress I've made so far and even more motivated to lose, especially before vacation

    I hope everyone has had a great summer and i hope you go into this holiday season from a better place than the year before.
    This last week was my 30th wedding anniversary and i am happy to think that i will have many more to come. In the not so distant past i was not so sure i would live to see this one and 35 or 40 was beyond my expectations. Anything could still happen but at least i have stopped digging in my effort to get of the hole i found myself in.
    I have made 3 life changing decisions in the last few decades.
    1. asking my wife to marry me - being a child of divorced parents colors your expectations about getting and staying married.
    2. saying yes when my wife asked if i wanted children - This was a lie at the time. having a child was THE most terrifying thing i could think of. Today there is nothing i would not do for my daughter and i feel a love  i did not know could exist inside a person.
    3. accepting that i could not control my weight by myself and getting this surgery to save my own life. Putting myself first as a way to be there for them is not a concept that I lived by before.
    If you ever wonder is it worth it yes it is cause i was worth it and they are worth it.
    Never give up folks
    Whatever you are working towards you have the rest of your life to get there.

    This place can be positive or negative depending on your outlook. I've noticed that when I remain active here by following the struggles or joys of others and, most important, leaving a comment, I'm helping myself probably more than the person for whom I'm leaving a comment. It takes courage initially to post your first question or topic. What if no one responds? What if I make a fool of myself because I put words together like a monkey with a keyboard? 
    I forgot what my intended message was here. I guess it's something like the penny jar one finds in a store. Take a penny for yourself when you need it, leave a penny for someone else in case they need it.
    Thank you to all the kind people out there who've left a penny for me. Here's my penny for someone else. Please take it if you need it. (This penny is a metaphor,  ).

    Onederland....
    It's been a few years since I saw the scale tip below 200, I woke up Monday and checked my weight and was excited to see it under 200 (199.8) I didn't really count the weight as I had just come off of being sick for 5 days and barely eating. My appetite has since returned, so much so I hate to admit I was terrible on Tuesday. Had a carb overload day (sort of) - I had about 3oz of angel hair pasta with grilled veggies, baked sweet potato with sour cream and butter and even had dessert (Madeleines). I felt horribly guilty at the end of the day, but my body was craving something other than animal protein.  Woke up this morning prepared to see the scale back over 200 and to my surprise, it was 198.8. I'm only 0.8lbs from my first goal, hoping I can hold steady and drop that lb before my body stalls again.
    Having this surgery has been one of my best decisions, sometimes I feel like I've cheated and took the easy way out, but deep down I know that medically supervised weight loss,  countless diets, weight loss drugs and many medical conditions couldn't  help me lose the weight. Since Surgery, I'm down 37 lbs and off my BP meds, no longer take anti-depressants, no more PPIs. I'll have my first series of blood-work drawn in about two weeks, hoping that I can lose at least one more pill...

    OK, surgery's done (Weds), I'm home, and I'm trying to tough it out with just Tylenol in the daytime, because the oxycodone makes me too tired to function. I might take it before bed, just to give my liver a break from Tylenol each day.
    I'm taking the anti-nausea pills preventatively. I'll want to go off them as soon as possible, but the patch they put on is only good for three days. This is day three. I'd like to avoid forcing my new stomach and the nicely sewn up hernia to send things backwards, if at all possible.

    I'm doing small loops around parts of the house and using the spirometer often. Just trying to heal up, you know. Coughing hurts, but that's to be expected. So far, Jello is the main thing my stomach seems willing to accept, though I've had a little luck with black tea, too.

    It took all of the courage in my soul, but I did manage to give myself the shot of blood thinner in my stomach. Blood clots are serious business.

    Had a wedding in Reno this last week but managed to have a good time anyway (lol)
    My numbness that i thought was a pulled muscle was a rare but not unheard of side effect of rapid weight loss. It is a pinched nerve probably caused by the loss of fat around the nerve that allowed the nerve bundle to shift.
    weight has been steady and holding within half a pound these last weeks so it looks like i have the correct calories dialed in for maintenance.
    I can still do my treadmill time but weight lifting is off the table for now. So more lower body work and hopefully the pinched nerve will resolve with the stretching and time.
    Got Scottish games to go to this weekend so looking forward to a fun if long day.
    Wore a Suit for the first time in 20 years, can't say i enjoyed it but i survived the tie.
