Bad news and probably short lived good news



Recommended Posts

Bad news? I have been laid up with the respiratory flu for the past two days.......fever, chills, sore throat, headache........

The probably short lived good news? The scale was down 5 lbs today.

I am sure it is because I have been on Clear liquids for 48 hours but hey---I will enjoy it while it is there!!!

I am supposed to go for a fill first thing tomorrow morning. I am not sure if I should or if I should re-schedule.

Sorry your sick. I don't know what I would do if I was you. If you are pretty hungry Iguess I would go in for a fill even though your under the weather. Good luck and feel better.

If your illness involved barfing I would put off the fill as your tummy is very sensitive. Otherwise I agree with the poster who said if you are hungry go for it.

By the way, sorry you were sick, but congrats on your 5 pound loss!!!

No barfing.....just the respiratory crud.

I am going to see how I feel in the morning. I had a fever again today but it is gone now.......I really could use a slight fill.....

Do not get a fill! I had respitory issues a few weeks ago and had to get an unfill. I was so miserable...couldnt breathe (cuz I was sick) and couldnt eat....cuz the respitory issues made my band so tight. I would def wauit til you are better. Get well soon!77

I agree, I would not go for a fill. Besides, I am not sure your surgeon will fill you. You are doing great without. But, if you are feeling hungry, reschedule your fill for after you feel better. karen*kll724)

Awww...that sucks being sick! Hope you feel better soon! I personally wouldn't get a fill until I was fever-free for 24 hours w/o medication and it would suck if someone else got sick at the dr. office from you being sick. kwim?

i'm just getting over bronchitis and my nasal drainage was causing me major nausea. i've been surviving on liquids too for the past 7 days AND i hit my goal weight lol

i'm sure i'll gain the 5 pounds back as soon as i start eating again but it felt SO nice getting on the scale and knowing i'm finally "normal" according to the BMI chart!!

i hope you feel better soon!

Well, I didn't get a fill today....it was rescheduled for 2 weeks from now. I did go into the office though because I was the first appointment of the day and it is hard to call in advance and cancel.

I am down 9.5 lbs since my last fill a month ago---I know I will gain some back when I start really eating again.......

Thanks for the advice everyone.......and wash your hands! This crud is horrible.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      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

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      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.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
