First Trip Back Home Post-op

by newclear on 06-06-2014 at 05:17 PM
I spent 10 glorious days home to lovely NYC. 10! My mother-in law passed, so it was good to be around family. I am so happy to have taken all that time off, relax, catch up with people and not weigh myself. I didn't log at all. The closest thing to logging that I did was ask my mum what her pedometer said when we were out all day once. Turns out we walk a lot... some 10 miles. My mum says she usually gets 8 mi in when she goes out, but have done up to 14 in an outing. We both love seeing the city,

New Tummy - Case Cracked

by newclear on 03-22-2014 at 06:44 PM
Without going into explicit details, I've had issues with my body's ability to retain practically anything nutrient rich (non-clear fluids, including yoghurts).

***NOTE: I'm not promoting the sleeve over the band. These are my research based opinions. I am not in the medical field. You should discuss your options with your doctor to determine what's best for you.****

A few years ago through last December, I thought the lap band would be the perfect tool to help me lose weight. It's minimally invasive, lower risk, adjustable, reversible and nutrient deficiency doesn't have to be a lifelong concern. Even though it doesn't have great long term

7 Days Post Op

by newclear on 03-21-2014 at 05:43 PM
It's official! I'm 7 days post op and I can't say all has been as I expected it, but I'm on my way to where I want to be. My journey started several years ago when it comes to considering bariatric surgery. I was not heavy enough for the procedure and had otherwise good health, so there's no way I would qualify unless I ate myself back into the place I was right after college at 263 lbs. The idea of that sickened me, it wasn't an option, but I was still left with a problem - my weight was very unhealthy.
