Happy Vet's Day To Us Too!



Recommended Posts

Hi, in about 2 more days, i will be 1 year out a bandster. I know this has nothing to do with serving our country. But it does have a lot to do with serving ourselves. Our struggles, the ups and downs. Daily struggles, which anyone who doesn't have a weight issue, has no idea, what we go through.

So, high five to all us, who have decided to accept the band, accept that we needed help to become more healthy. Continue to be strong, and stay strong. This is our own personal war which we fight for life.

(please, do not be offended that i used Vet's Day to shout out to us all. That was not my intent. As for myself, I am a US Veteran and thought we should also recognize ourselves, today and everyday. Good luck everyone today and in the future.)

happy veterans day to my banded sistas and brothas

hope all the vets had a great day.....it was and is a special day for our country...my parents were both army (my dad served 3 terms in vietnam) and my 2 brothers were in the 82nd Airborne and Rangers respectively..i married an air force guy (still am for 29 yrs) and he retired out at 25 yrs and now my gorgeous son is serving in england with the air force.....

just this past weekend, my ole man's mc rode in 2 parades and i was the most proud (not at seeing his sexy self) but at seeing all the flags and all the people standing up and saluting or putting their hands over their hearts as the flags marched down the street...

respect america.....love it and be thankful......i sure am

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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.
