February



Recommended Posts

I may have to push my surgery to February. Starting a new job and the surgery is to close tothe date I have in October to take off. Then the holidays. Plus said January would be hard to get any time off. So I am going to call tommorow, see what February looks like. That's so long away. Maybe I can try a diet once more. Don't know what to do. I already had to change from August to October now all the way till February. I will have a secondary insurance from my work by then. Diet or patiently await till February?

Wait patiently and work on lifestyle modifications. Try getting some walking in, start eliminating things from your diet that you won't be able to have after surgery. I found that this was very helpful. Recovery is hard enough without going through withdrawal from cravings. Give up the sugar, simple starches, caffeine, soda, alcohol.

If dieting worked for you, you would have already lost the weight and kept it off by now. Like many of us, you have probably lost and regained many times. All that does is wreck your metabolism and short circuit the stomach-brain transmissions, making permanent weight loss nigh unto impossible. The time will past quickly, with holidays right around the corner, and starting a new job. Hang in there!

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
