Ok, I think I am normal, I think I am normal. Thursday will be 21 days post surgery. As a car passenger, visited my parents, one hour each way. Rested at the folks house. Just starting pureed food. Got home, super tired.
Next day, one mile walk in morning and night decent energy. Today, in a fog. Also, when trying to do some work on the internet, (seeking new work) concentration is limited. Any thoughts?
GREAT NEWS, for right now, my primary care doctor says stay off my diabetes and blood pressure meds. YAHOOO!
For anyone on the fence, do this surgery.

I am a month out. I have experienced the brain fog a couple times my first week. Are you keeping track of your food and liquid intake?? If so, review it, if not, start. I was low on calories, protien and very low on liquids. Once I made it a point to never go to bed lower than 500 calories, 60 protien or 36 ounces of Water (still not enough water) i have yet to get brain fog again.

Best of luck.

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
