    Thank you! No I'm not taking any supplements. I've been thinking about calcium and trying flintiness vitamins because I can't take any other (make me sick), but I don't feel weak or anything. I am currently able to drink 1.5 protein shakes and working on getting 2 in. I do drink less liquid than I should, but getting there. As days go by, I'm able to intake more liquid.

    I just tried cooking my own version of chicken broth with zuccini, carrot, onion, and cilantro and a boneless skinless chicken breast for flavor. I took carrots and zuccini and onion and blended them with some of the broth....it was heaven....I can't take any of the other broths I used to. I'm sticking to this now.

    Thank you! Sorry for delay in response. I had been really tied up catching up with home/kids/school. My surgery went very well. I am approaching 2 weeks on the 18th and feel good.

    My first day was rough! Kind of expected it since I've never been a jogger or runner. I wasn't able to finish the program the first day. But I'm going to keep on trying. I was sick for a few days but I'm getting back into it now. Trying to go to gym at least 4-5 days a week now. How are you doing with the program?

    Surgery went well. I was told I was the star patient. I was up and walking 2am.4am damn all the time!! LOL One thing I have a question about is that the first night I had a starving feeling. The hunger feeling seems to be going away.Maybe I have it mixed up with a rumbly tummy,. Other wise day 4 barely any pain

    Started Monday buddy. My schedule is funky so I gotta get organized quick. Most of my running will be indoors until spring. Yesterday was Day two...plus I had 90 minutes of soccer in the evening and ran the whole time. 23,000 fitbit steps and a buttload of burned up calories. A hot bath and I felt amazing going to sleep last night=) Lets keep checking in and if you ever get a fitbit, you can link up with me so we can encourage each other through the app.....Alvin

    Good ideas, thanks again! I know the planning is going to be extremely important to help stay on track! Yeah I'm going to try some coffee w/splenda and skim milk and see if it's tolerable. I know once you get your body out of the sugar addiction phase, things taste better that you didn't like before. Because when I was first diagnosed w/diabetes I was able to cut out sugar and just use substitute... but then after my A1C got under control I started slipping here and there and before you know it I'm ordering a mocha frap every other day :/

    Cool thanks for posting that! I know what you mean and I'm definitely not expecting this to be a magic bullet. Don't we wish LOL! Luckily I had already quit pop when I got DM2 three years ago. BUT I traded it for coffee, which isn't much better considering I put hot chocolate, cream and Splenda in it. So I'm going to stop that because I don't want to drink my calories. Thanks for the advice & enjoy your day!

Running and shooting and shopping, oh my!

by Christie13 on Today at 08:33 PM
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

And the number is....................... ....

by Christie13 on 01-20-2017 at 06:47 PM
So I went to my PCP for pap today. I had seen him last on the 20th of December. I was curious to see what my total weight loss was for the past month. I just update my ticker and have not been tracking my weight loss weekly or what not. I thought I had lost about 10 lbs over this past month as my best guess. Turns out I was 12 lbs lighter than a month ago. I was really pleased with that number. I am definitely on a nice steady path for my weight loss. I am sure that it will continue to move

11 Weeks

by Christie13 on 01-20-2017 at 12:36 AM
Completed week 3 of the C25K program. Still feeling great. No soreness. This week was definitely doable. Warm up 5 mins, run 90 secs, walk 90 secs, run 3 mins, walk 3 mins, 90/90/3min/3min again, 5 minute cool down. Not bad at all. I did peek at next week. After warm up it is 3 min run, 90 sec walk, 5 min run, 2.5 min walk (repeat), then cool down. I am a little intimidated. Hopefully I am good to go!
Tomorrow I have an appointment with my PCP for my girlie parts. Aw the joy of

Woohoo! Italy baby!

by Christie13 on 01-17-2017 at 05:34 PM
So today we booked our tickets to go to Italy in July for 16 days. My dad is getting remarried (my mother passed away 2 years ago) and we found a good deal on tickets. It's going to be me, my hubby, my 2 kids, and my mother in law. (My step kids are not going...no way their mom would let them.) So very excited. We had to go get passports today for the hubby and I. My husband hasn't had one in 20+ years and mine was going to expire in August and still had my old last name on there. (We got

Instructions from my surgeon

by Christie13 on 01-15-2017 at 10:42 PM
So I have posted some pictures of stuff that was given to me from my surgeon. I have had 2 people request I email them a copy of it. So tonight I scanned them into the computer (with the exception of the pre op diet). Anyone who would like a copy, just PM me your email and I would be more than happy to share.
