Had my preop appointment today



Recommended Posts

So i went and pre registered for surgery on monday found out that i had met most of my out of pocket. Had to pay about 900.00 which is why i was pushing for surgery this year next year i probably could not afford it. Did blood and x ray and did a final weigh in before surgery. I was only required two days of a preop diet before surgery however i took all the info given to me in our meetings and put my self on a high Protein low carb diet happy to say i lost 11 pounds on my own Now i know that is not much but let me tell you for someone who started at 391 that means the world to me. It gives me the i can do this feeling. The one major issue i am facing is the exercise which i can do mostly outside of a gym however doc wants me to do resistance exercises to keep muscle mass. Anyone one know of a way i could do that without going into a gym like equipment that i could buy was thinking about the total gym. I dont know, any ideas?

What about resistance bands? I hear they work good also I've been doing calisthenics ;) Look into it

I only had 2 days of preop diet, too. :)

I do weight training in my apt. I bought weights so I can use them whenever I want. Day or night.

Just free weights. I own 1lb., 5lb. and 10lb. ones. I used to have a weight bench and curl bar so I could add weight onto it. You can google curl bar and see what I mean or I can point you to some links. I had to sell the weight bench and curl bar, unfortunately, bc I have tendon and ligament issues and am only allowed to lift up to 10 lbs. That's why I now use free weights. Oh, and these tendon and ligament issues have nothing to do with the DS. They began long before I had it done.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
