Cutting slack while ill



Recommended Posts

I'm full to the brim with cold and up at 2.15am UK time cos I can't sleep with temp, blocked nose, dry throat from mouth breathing, upset stomach and starving cos I've been up about 4 hours longer than I allowed for with food and drink.

Also feeling a tad sorry for myself...did you notice?

Carbs will be thru the roof as the idea of meat, fish or eggs is...well...offputting right now. Crackers all the way. But did do 2250ml Water by bedtime.

Guess I came here for.sympathy but also to say you should remind me of this if I start fretting about a stall :-)

Take care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.[emoji855]
Thanks xxx Managed 2 hours sleep before the coughing started, but on the mega brightside I had already drunk 750mls by 5.30am

It's hard to eat healthy when you don't feel good. I've had a cold for the last 10 days and thought it was getting better and going away but now it's back and I'm taking cold medicine again. I've been tempted to comfort myself with some carbs, but I haven't yet and hope I can hold out. chocolate Protein Shakes are my "go to" splurge.

Thanks all - Better now, but made the silly mistake of weighing myself the day after I felt human again - 3 pounds off in 5 days. 2 of which I had regained by the Monday weigh in 🙂 Such a relief to realise it wasn't just me being lazy and out of shape as I initially thought when I was sickening for it.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
