Laura's RNY Journey; Age 31 Starting Weight 365



Recommended Posts

I used the new directions products when I was on the Methodist diet. Half of a hot cocoa and half of a chocolate pudding, a pinch of baking soda and some Water will get you a cake. I loved the orange drink in the morning. Good luck on your journey. Am hoping for an early October 2018 date

WEIGHT UPDATE

I am down a total of 34 lbs in six weeks!
15lb on two week pre-op diet
19lbs in four weeks post-op

I’m feeling great! I can fit into chairs in doctors offices. I’m only six pounds away from my six week goal of 320. And only 9 lbs away from my goal of 315 which means I will have lost all the weight I gained in the last year (45lbs)!

After that 265 is my next benchmark!

HW-365
SW-345
CW-326
4 weeks post op

LETS TALK SHOES

So today has been a low day for me. I thought I’d do a little shoe therapy even though my feet aren’t back to their normal size. I was very disappointed in my choices. I’m a size 10 so 11 and 12 or 10W is what I needed to find. Well, I bought two pair but I don’t feel much better. I couldn’t fit in any of the cute styles. Today has been tough. I ate too many calories yesterday. I just feel blah. I thought I’d post because not everyday is wonderful.

Nope sure isn't but in the long run they do balance out.
Your feet are my feet also, I am hoping mine dimish enough I can go back to girls instead of burying guy cross-trainers etc . I was in sweats one day little kid came,up, asked if I was a women or fat? Both, thank you Junior, now go play in traffic or find your mama!
Once I get a good loss I am going back into lady clothes where there is No Doubt.

I ate well on Sunday but struggled a little with snacking today in the evening since I hadn’t had enough throughout the day. Getting into a routine now that I’m back at work and doing personal training is definitely an adjustment.

I’m on Track

My surgeon said I’m doing great. He said I should be eating 800-1200 calories so I didn’t mess up! Yay.

MY HOSPITAL BAG-PREP
I finally hit 15lbs lost on PRE-OP diet! The 3 day stall is over! Going into surgery at 345! You can see my preparation of Vitamins below and my hospital bag. I'm going with simple is best. I will wear a dress and flip flops to and from the hospital. I have one set of elastic pants and a workout top. My husband lives nearby and can bring anything I need.
PREP
I cleaned the house and all the laundry is done. My broth (chicken, beef, and bone) is in ice cube trays in the freezer. I have sugar-free popsicles, Protein Jello, protein Water, and an assortment of zero calorie beverages and water flavoring. I have some protein Soups, unflavored Protein Powder (to add to foods), vanilla protein powder, a variety or ready made shakes and a few powder mocha shakes. Some of my pureed foods are in my pantry so that I don't have to run out if I don't have to.

Actually, it was Walgreens. The Vitamin box I originally bought on Amazon did not have large enough compartments for BariMelts large circle vitamin.
