Music Playlist - Pre Op



Recommended Posts

What is some good music to get excited why waiting for surgery? Inspirational? motivating? etc.

I found this song today from the album coming out October 5th by For King and Country called Burn The Ships.

The song Burn The Ships- the lyrics really hit home.

Here is the lyric that hit me.

The albuim is based upon sailers who were so comfortable in their boats and didn't explore- that when on land for awhile, the captain ordered them on to shore and said "BURN THE SHIPS" taking away the comfort zone and forcing new exploration.

I think some of use getting WL surgery have often times either been afraid of trying new things for our health, or gotten comfortable- this song spoke volumes.

Lets make a WLS playlist- join me?!?!

“Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon a heartache
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don't you look back”

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
