Oh nekkidity...my frienemy! :)

UGH- nekkidity - after my surgery, the drain was put in a really awkward place, too low on my right side for me to change the dressings. So, hubby had to do it. Only way to do it was bright light and naked from the waist down. aarrrggghhh! That lower-tummy is soooo fugly! I definitely prefer low lights for shenanigans. I can live with whatever he discovers by the Braille method, but lit up like Times Square was so embarrassing. Even after almost 30 years of marriage, a girl'd like to have a little dignity left!

I know! I mean birthing 4 kiddos did a lot of dignity damage, especially twins because there were even people looking into the room from an observation window! And yes, the window looked straight into my lady parts! But that was a long time ago, now. I guess I felt I had reclaimed a little!

Does the actual fasting period kick in faster for bypass patients? I mean, food doesn't stay in our "stomach" for hardly any time at all, really.

I would potentially "think" so? But have no proof of that. Some say being in keto makes things go faster also, but again--no proof. I do know my ketometer (breath) shows when I'm getting benefits cuz it finally starts going up--while blood glucose is going down. When I'm eating poorly, or eating big meals, then it goes pretty low (.10-.15). Mine never gets over 1 though. And that's fine by me! :)

I've used keto sticks and a breath meter. Neither ever showed that I got into ketosis, even in the beginning when I was only eating 300 cals/day. I had to have been fat-burning, but never could prove it by the meters.

Yes, folks. Alice is officially down the rabbit hole. :) :blush:

Autophatea...just sayin'.

Ugh, so I need autophagy .... but don't need to lose any more weight

It's possible to do doll! But you will likely still end up remodelling your figure with it. :( But there are many in Dr. Fung's Facebook group who are doing autophagy fasting and maintaining their weight.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
