Down 50 - Halfway There - And Kidney Stones!

Rate this Entry
Happy to report that I am down 50 pounds - just 10 days prior to 2 months post-op. Not as happy to report that I got to experience my first kidney stone and if the pain I felt is anything like child birth, I will now declare that I am never going to have children!

I am told that that issue is potentially tied to not drinking enough water - which seems to be the endless scourge. So hard to drink water when you are used to guzzling an entire glass or bottle after the gym and knowing what that would feel like now really discourages that kind of fluid intake. So it's a question of remembering, remembering, remembering to drink a bit of water all the time. Compared to the pain of that stupid stone, it's worth making the effort.

    Congrats Dave!!!! On the weight loss, not the birth of the kidney stone. I've given birth to 3 children and about a dozen kidney stones. I'll take the kids anyday! It's NOT fun at all! Hope you get to feeling better!
