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.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
