WLS and Schooling



Recommended Posts

I signed up for classes this semester and I was wondering if anyone else is attending the Spring 2019 Semester? I am working towards a degree in Radiology; I have a very high interest in the medical field and I worked on pinpointing exactly what I wanted to do. So Radiology it is! I have a very dense class coming up, A&P I (Human Anatomy and Physiology I) so I am a little nervous. I am still suffering from mild to moderate fatigue, so I am hoping I can juggle work and school.

But let us use this as a place to rant and vent about school! :)

I'm currently smack-dab in the middle of my master's program and have a FT career (and a husband and 2 girls, 11 and almost 9). (Sleeved 10/17/18). I am still struggling a bit with fatigue and mental fog, but I can't quit now!!

Yes, my Batty love! I am entering semester 2 of my master's program next week. I had surgery mid-December so that it would fall between semesters! I can't wait for my classmates to see me again in awhile!

Yeah, I had my surgery on the same exact day for that reason too! It's been really nice not having to deal with schoolwork when we're this tired, right? :)

Yeah, I was sleeved on 12/12 and I am a little worried about fatigue. I do not have any kids, but I have a FT job with a house and a bunch of animals. I've been needing to sleep more and more - I just don't feel like I am going to have any energy or time.

I just started a new course and I hate it. I'm having to put effort in and I don't like it! I'm too busy using all my effort to live this new lifestyle!

I had this professor for my undergrad courses a few years ago but she is much tougher than I remember her being. *sigh* Back to reading my 2nd of 3 required readings before I can even start on the actual homework...and then move on to the quiz. I can't wait for December when my program is over!!

      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.
