Emotionally roller coaster:

Yesterday I was so upset! I didn't blow my top but I wanted to. I finally ended up taking my anxiety meds and calling it a day. Today I'm super depressed.

Anyone else running the gamut of emotions?

Yep, I did today as well...

Hey everyone, just checking in cause I haven't in a while. My scars are healing nicely. They're little pink thin things. Much, much better than the ones from my gallbladder out where they sealed the incisions with glue and the scars left are big circular deals.

Had my first post-op appointment with the surgeon and my dietician cleared me for all foods, not just soft. However, I've still been sticking to soft foods just cause they're easier on the tummy. Getting in around 500-600 calories a day, which my dietician mentioned was to be expected this far out. So feeling better about that. I had been worried that I wasn't eating enough even though I sort of felt like I was eating all the time. Still so strange to feel like I'm kinda constantly eating but still only be eating so few calories. I am down to 242, so my stall is long gone, which yay! It lasted about 2 and a half weeks total when I was at 252-251. Total of 28lbs lost since surgery on the 8th which is pretty amazing. Also down 12 inches over the past 3 weeks, not all from one spot but an inch or from various spaces (thighs, biceps, chest, hips, waist, neck).

Starting to feel more "normal" again which is amazing! Getting on soft foods and more regular foods really really helped. I think my favorite meal right now is just deli turkey, cheese, and some olives or dill pickles.

Hope you are all doing well too!

Wow! You lost alot! Good for you!!:) I'm at 5 weeks today and I've lost only 15lbs:( it's very hard to stay positive and be patient right now bc of that...so I've been doing what I do best unfortunately and eat the wrong things or eat too much. It really stinks! I was trying to be what I call active which isn't much unfortunately but now I haven't even been doing that! Idk whats going on with me...I had 2 premiere Protein Shakes today and my 4 chewable vitamins and still hurt all over and have no energy. I probably didn't have enough Water though now that I think about it. Gosh, I gotta start logging everything I eat and drink. I have been slacking with so much since I've had marital problems going on, family issues, and daughter going off to college, and my 2 lil boys are just driving me nuts this summer:/ I need to step my game up I guess ughhh
Well anyways, glad your healing real well and feeling good! I hope to join you there soon lol

I hear you, Christina! I feel the same way. I had to buy different Vitamins because the chewables made me nauseous. I barely lost any weight and I have no energy whatsoever. The scale finally moved today so I'm feeling hopeful. If we keep doing what we are supposed to be doing, it's going to work!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
