Drink definitely! I love me some flat 7—up when I get sick. I go off coffee too (even though I only drink mostly Decaf these days)

I keep falling behind-- 17- hold myself back because I procrastinate everything!

18- I wanted to write a book...have started and stopped several times (see #17).

b-side ?-- drink more. FEEL BETTER!

B-side - Traditionally, I go for Soup when I'm sick and I crave popsicles then too...so I'm going to have to say fluids. I haven't had to address this post surgery yet.

DAY 18: Idea I'd like to Persue: Becoming a writer. I love to read and would love to write a book about nothing some day!

B-side question: drink more when I'm sick, then lay in the bed miserable all day!

Stalls are the worse... They test your sanity.

Reflux is low-level so not terrible. It is only from Water after all.

Hello hello! I'm doing well, although my weight keeps bouncing back and forth and I'm up today! Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

What am I grateful for today? I leave for a 5 day vacay starting tonight! So happy to be off work! Woo hoot!

It’s a mix depending on type of virus. Sometimes I’m ravenous and other times I can barely keep down small sips. I hope you’re feeling better soon 🥰

19) what I’ve made that I’m most proud of is a relatively happy home.

Honestly, I haven't made progress on the scale....but I'm at one of those weights that is an old set point. So, I'm working to out-stubborn the darn thing. But this week, I noticed my thighs seem to have done a bit of disappearing. I don't think the scale necessarily keeps up with all the rest of the activity going on with my body's changes.

19. I'm with DanaC84. I am proud that I've made my home my home. Also some of my artwork. Oh, and yes, some of my poetry.

19. I'm proud that I've taken a commitment to take care of myself not just physically but mentally and emotionally to. I found a therapist I love and see her once a week. I also go to the post-surgery group at my surgeon's office.

Also, update on my goal for the month. Now that I have the full fitness clearance I'm back on track with three workouts a week. Eventually, I'd like to work myself up to more.

      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
