Happy Feelin's in the air...

Recommended Posts

This will be a quickie. I needed to purge my thought surrounding my first post-op shopping trip yesterday.

Given my previous post and the whole emotional roller coaster thing?I think retail therapy helped a bit. I have a wedding to go to this weekend, and don?t have anything to wear that FITS *grin*

liquid diet on 9/7). To try on a size 20 dress, then a size 18?? After I have been wearing a 22 or 24 (depending on the cut)?totally made my day!

Im certain the size 18 dress was cut WAY big, but still?Just looking at myself in it?thinking ?wowwwwwwwwwwwwww?. I couldn?t stop smiling? I?ve even noticed that my knees & back aren?t hurting as much. I guess 30# can make all the difference in the world.

food again after having NOT for a month. Especially after that chicken salad incident?but we?ll see.

I guess other than that, everything is ok.

I?m looking forward to many more milestones and shopping sprees. And I can?t WAIT to to rock my new SIZE 18 dress at the wedding. *super smile* Nope. Folks ain?t ready?

1stshop5.jpg?w=225&h=300 Yup - wearing this to the wedding!

Thanks again for all of the encouragement, and for taking this ride with me. It?s gonna be full of ups & downs?but it?s sure to be memorable!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
