  1. Running and shooting and shopping, oh my!

    So today I completed week 4 day one of the C25K. As I expected, it was hard but not as bad as I had anticipated. It felt the hardest the last 1 1/2 minutes of the final 5 minute run. It did not help that it was super windy today. Like crazy wind. So there were times that we were fighting against the wind while running. I may have to do this week twice to feel completely comfortable with the running portions and I am ok with that. I want to be sure that I feel like I am enjoying the running ...
  2. Operation McSkinny Jeans

    3 Weeks Post-op

    Eating hurts.

    The top of my stomach and/or lower portion of my esophagus cramp when I eat anything remotely solid.

    I am now 11 days post op. My only complications, so far, are that 2 of my incision sites are infected and painful. I need to see a Dr. I think, maybe get stronger antibiotics. I think it's weird that I've followed the post-op instructions and have been taking my antibiotics as directed and STILL got infected. hmm...

  5. Decision to have Lap-Band Revision

    Good morning guys,

    I am now 1 week post-op and I thought this is the right time to create a few post for folks looking to do a revision. There are countless blogs on here about the vsg. But the lap-band revision to sleeve is certainly something else. Please excuse the typos, I wrote this on my iPad.

    So...let's start off.

    How did I know I needed a revision? And why did I choose the sleeve?
    As I'
    ve mentioned in many earlier posts, I had successful ...
