    Feeling like a pin cushion.
    I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

    Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.

    Week 5 Post Op Report

    What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

    I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

    I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

    I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

    I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

    I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

    I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

    I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

    I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

    I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

    6 Weeks Post Op!

    My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

    I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

    I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

    I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

    I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

    This is my new world and I am happy it!

    Today I walked 3.4 miles. It was a beautiful walk. I am so blessed to live by the ocean. I like the gym but these outdoor walks have really made me happy. I may even try to start jogging once I am approved to do so.
    Set your intentions now! Start working toward them NOW. No matter if you are pre-op or post op. Go get it! You wanted it, and it's up to you to grab it.
    Four weeks post op and all is well.
    How is is going for you?

    I am sitting here in AWE of this past week. I have done well. I am able to get all my liquids in and I am not hungry and my progress is steady!

    Today was my first week post-op nutritionist meeting. I have been released to the next phase! So I can look forward to sugar-free puddings, low-fat cottage cheese, creamed soups, eggwhites, humus, and pureed/refried beans. NOTHING with chunks, seeds or spicy.

    In addition to that I am still to get 48 ounces of CLEAR liquids in (broth, water, decaf tea) And I am suppose to have my vitamins as well as my protein shakes! Right now I am just loving Muscle Milk. It’s 25 grams of protein per bottle. I love chocolate but I find the chocolate one seems a bit too thick for me at this phase. So I am drinking the Vanilla Creme and Banana Creme.

    This morning I had 1 ounce of Kettle and Fire Butternut Squash Soup with is made with bone broth! So yummy!

    TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
    I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
    I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
    SO HAPPY for this journey!
    You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

    One thing I was NOT prepared for when I had my LapBand and lost all my weight was how others reacted to my changes. I was so focused on me and getting healthy that I did not see the others around me seething with toxic thoughts and words. Took me completely by surprise how you know people for years then all of a sudden their true character showed up.
    This time around I am prepared but I am totally documenting this journey from the very beginning in my blog! It's been therapeutic to write it all out.
