Its official. I'm 4 days post op. I had surgery on Monday. Thank you for all of the well wishes and prayers. I can honestly say that the pain wasn't too bad. Maybe because the meds right after surgery but when I came to I really tried not to press that heavenly button. I only used it to sleep. The only real pain is from the incision in my belly button. It really hurts and when I try to stand. I also miss the hospital bed. So I'm sleeping on my couch with my back against it. Can't sleep laying down. Trying to get my liquids in but I want some damn food. A grilled cheese, some chicken, something solid. Is this normal? lol. I wonder if they really sleeved me? lol Well I good luck to those going in for surgery, god bless and may your surgery be a success.

Welcome home n grats to u! And yes, ive read others who've asked the same question as u bc they wanted food. Remember, its a tool to help us and according to my surgeon, it doesnt take away the head hunger bc we have grown accustomed to not knowing real hunger, hence, we r overweight. But u hang in there and tell ur lil head to chill n let ur lol tummy heal:)) gl n God bless. U got this

Yes it's normal. All I could think about on day 4 was a juicy steak and a large pizza with extra cheese. My sister said, I thought you weren't supposed to get hungry for that stuff..and that's when I told her, it's the "mind" not the stomach. The cravings have dwindled quite a bit...but for some reason I still think from time to time abut a juicy steak..lol

I started pureed food day, so it helps...yummy mash potatoes thinned with low sodium beef broth for dinner...it was delish.

I understand. My score on my labs was 99 (one point below being pre-diabetic) that result had spur me into action too. We are reversing it by taking control. Hang in there.

Yeah Ms. Yvette your on the other Side and healing. Hope the head hunger doesn't stay around to long. I'm also worried about the hunger afterwards. What have you been typing to ward them off?

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
