    I know I need to stop with the scale.. A very bad habit I started months ago. It has become part of my morning routine. It is not too bad but I know I should not do it. I wish the sight of food made me nauseous... right now it makes me wish I could have it. lol. Today was a lot better though. I am working through my issues with food, still seeing my therapist and that really helps. I think I want more then anything is to have some kind of texture. I can not wait to have refried beans.
    My incisions look great. I am very pleased with how they look.She did a nice clean job. She used the surgical glue, and now it is flaking off. I think it will be fine though.
    I hope you're doing well. Have a great Thursday.

    That is good to hear. Yes, It will be one week tomorrow. I am adjusting slowly.But I am doing well. I am down 3 pounds since the day before the surgery. I was starting to worry a little with the 6 pound gain from the hospital. I know it is all liquids from the IV and gas, but it it was still a little nerve racking not seeing it come down. Walking a lot helped with that. Sticking to my post op diet really well but I am craving soft foods. I am not going to push it. Making yummy dinners for the family is the hardest. But I am finding soups I have never tried and different yogurts. I am a little tired of shakes, but still have them as well.
    The glue over the incisions is starting to peel away, it seems too early. It is itchy. I will be glad when it all falls off and I can put some vitamin e oil on them.
    Have a great Tuesday

Six Weeks Out....and NOW you want to have a panic attack!?!

by binalyn on 10-06-2013 at 10:39 PM
Panic set in and set up within a blink of an eye....

I was planning my activities for tomorrow and realized that I needed to go the grocery store. As I started to make out my grocery list, it hit me - you're about to enter phase 4 - which equates to solids and your forever sleeved life eating style!


What does this mean?
What do I eat?
How do I keep this weight loss going? I have too much to lose to

Drain-less in Georgia!

by binalyn on 09-12-2013 at 01:54 PM
It's finally out!

Of all the things I experienced, the poking, the prodding - the surgery....the drain that remained with me until my surgical follow-up was the MOST annoying.

I admit it - I was terrified at the thought of the pain that I would have to endure to have it removed - but I wanted it GONE more.

And after all that build up in my mind....it didn't hurt at all. It just felt like a weird tugging sensation. I think that may have been because

Two weeks out....and I'm still here

by binalyn on 09-09-2013 at 08:01 PM
I am amazed that it's been two weeks.

I have resisted the urge to weigh myself. I have my 2 week follow up in 3 days. I want consistency in the numbers - so, I will wait (anxiously) to see how I have done.

What I have done right:

  • Drinking my water and staying hydrated
  • Taking slow and steady sips.
  • Resting when I need to and respecting my body's voice.

What I could have done better:

  • Walking 15

Wow....I'm almost there....

by binalyn on 08-26-2013 at 12:04 AM
It's 1am on the 26th of August....My surgery date is on the 27th.

I am surprisingly calm - there's no desire to back out - just calmness.

I am putting it in the hands of the most High and it will be as He wills it.

10 days out....

by binalyn on 08-17-2013 at 10:33 PM
And counting....

Getting all my vitamins and supplements in liquid forms for post-op...

Getting my house cleaned the way I like it....

Stocking up on my post-op liquids.....

And praying for strength and guidance to see me through this journey....
