  1. 10 days till sleeve surgery

    i have started the modified liquid diet.....two shakes and one meal ....during the day its not so hard but at night when i like to snack watching tv has been such a struggle, so i have tried to change my routine and walked on the treadmill for a hour while watching tv until i was soo tired and went to bed very early. i had to break this snacking habit one way or other and this is all i could come up with lol ...struggle is real.
  2. Moving on

    So now that my MD worked out a good food plan for me, I can put my frustrations aside and get to the work of making the most of this. I love solutions and the moving on part.So morning yoga is slowly morphing into more with additions. I have added strenthening exercises and ballet stretches. I do a solid 30+ minutes each morning.

  5. 22 days post op

    I can't believe i'm 3 weeks post op. I've been fortunate to not have any issues except 2 weeks of hives from the antibiotics but other than that its been an easy recovery. Yesterday i ate a little more than I have been eating and i felt uncomfortable so i'm going to have to just stick to half a cup of food. The worst part of the surgery is the food addiction still lives on, even after 80% of your stomach is removed. Food made me happy for 30 yrs and I miss it terribly but I know i made the right ...
