My scale at home is broken. For 3 weeks it told me I wasnt losing much at all. At my followup i was weighed and was 7 lbs under what my scale says. Still seems slow but we all have our own normal

Almost end of week 2, have been feeling great, no pain barely any discomfort and can drink my Water at a decent pace. When I hit my water goal, barely hungry. Tomorrow I start my pureed/mushy stage, excited to try the recepies I have seen online for this stage.

Hello everyone, had my 1st meal outside of liquid, not sure why I chose chili aside from my team saying we could have it. I took my sweet time eating it (about 40 minutes), chewing one bean 50 times and checking my body for signals, I added 2 oz of broth to thin it out and dilute the spices. I was able to have 1oz when I got a hiccup and since that is one of the full signals, I stopped immediately. I'm monitoring myself like crazy to check for anything out of sorts, but I will skip it for a few meals to try things maybe with a little less spice.

Hope everyone is having a great start of their weeks!

I am putting myself back on full liquids for a few days. I was put on soft foods (not pureed) on Nov. 28th, but the last few days my stomach seems to be more upset. I figure maybe I need to restart, slow down, and watch my intake a bit better.

It could also just be Constipation because I misplaced my dulcolax.

But better safe than sorry.

I met a coworker from another department who has the sleeve on Halloween this year. So that was pretty cool. I am thankful for the amount of support I get at work. My immediate coworkers watch my intake more closely than I do 😅.

infection round two

surgery 11/3

went to er 11/11 for infection that burst

thought that it healed up- skin was skin colored, no heat, no hard knot under skin, white scar formed, area was concave..

until sunday….. became red, tender etc… got antibiotics on monday and took two doses; woke up this morning and saw my incision was breaking open subq with thin skin holding it back from bursting … went to my surgeons office and he was i. surgery but i tried to wait on him but it burst while waiting… (i luckily brought a tea towel and most of the infection was caught by it… soaked through and now in the trash). his nurse spent 30 mins cleaning and getting some of the yuck out then sent me to er where i got another ct with contrast, two rounds of antibiotics, potassium and fluids…

sent home again and follow up later this week…. oh the joys that come with surgery

Don't let the infections get you down. You have already come amazingly far in this and eventually the infection will give up.

Oh no! Not again. Praying! You have really had a tough time. Keep your chin up though.. you have already made so much progress and you'll be back to normal before you know it.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
