Don't buy into the "Think of the starving children in(insert country here) brainwashing our parents gave us as children. My own, bless their ❤ and Lord Grant them Peace, had just emerged from the Depression. a scant decade before. They felt it was their Christian Duty as parents to plump me up in case of another famine. Now as I am eating and drinking a diet designed to slenderize earthworms and exercising like the Viet Cong were chasing me with bayonets at full tilt, I wonder if I had been better off with less devoted dietarily parents. They literally nearly killed me with their kindness. If you shipped me. to the South Sudan I'd still be living off of fat when they all died off.I would suggest sending me to the atheists except everyone of them I've encountered were also fine people. Oh fiddlesticks, I'll just have to reform to the best of my abilities.💇

I need to get away from all of this food!!! Been exceeding 15k steps a day, so maybe that will help, lol

Good for you! Taking the stairs each time was helpful. And yes walking helps me. Hopefully you too. Have a fun time. A few liquid meals at home will help. LATER.... FUN. NOW!

I just sent my husband to the clinic for something for his tummy. Oh yes he did -- he ate so much he is sick for going on 24 hours now. 2 months of eating fish, chicken and frozen Veges, then too much and too rich did him in!!

The final tally was +6 pounds, 4 of which are already gone. How shocking is that?? I was hoping to break even because calories were higher than normal, but evidently I retained significant water! I really do wonder if cruising is such a great idea for bariatric surgery people like us.

From Friday to Monday, the 6# went away. Thought I'd post this for other vacationers who relax a wee bit and see a gain -- its all Water.

I have a cruise booked for 13 August. I’m planning on avoiding the buffet and eating at the restaurant instead. On my last cruise I gained 1kg using this strategy. This time around I plan on doing the morning yoga too.

I.m thinking of packing my scales to keep me on track, do you think this is a good idea?

      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.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
