    Hi Sandra and thank you! At this point I need to start working out with weights in order to lose weight and tone up at the same time And you're right - we definitely have to wait until time has passed before any more surgery like a tummy tuck. I doubt I'll get one of those, but if I had a big apron I might. We shall see!

    I went to the doctor for BP as a follow up from the previous appointment. Guess what ???! He prescribed another pill !! He then said with the weight loss I should be able to get off ALL my BP meds, eventually. And some others as well. I am feeling better. I am going to Wal-mart today to get some more Premier Protein shakes. That seems the only way I can get my 60 g's in and my 64 oz. of liquids. I get things at the store that are high in protein, but I can not eat a whole serving yet. Nor do I really want to. My husband is a good garbage disposal...he eats the leftovers. Sometimes he tells me he wouldn't mind if I bought some more of an item. However, he may be too good at being a disposal. Sometimes I do not eat it all and intend to eat it at my next meal and when I go to get it, it is not there.
    I can tell I am getting better, too.
    I hope everything is going well with you. Take care. (psst...I am at 188)

    I was having a no good, horrible, very bad day. 1] lack of sleep due to heartburn, 2] I am using a breathing mask for sleep apnea and I am having trouble sleeping for more than 5 hours with it [ I am suppose to be sleeping 8] . 3] Acid build up keeps me nauseated 4] can not seem to get full amount of protein and liquids down [ I could do it prior to surgery and for a few weeks after but not anymore] and to top it off my blood pressure has gone way up. It all added up to a very bad day.
    I am better now except for my BP. I saw the doctor on the 16th and she prescribed Prilosec and a new blood pressure medication. I have to give both of them time to get in my system.

    Hey Sandra! I just noticed we have the same surgery date! First person I've run into so far with the same date as me I'm 2 days into my all liquid pre-op diet - so much hunger! How's yours going?

    Hi Sandra!
    How are you doing on your preop diet! Your surgery is less than two weeks away! How are you feeling?
    Best,

Back on PPI-pain after 5 days...argh!!!

by Sandra3 on 05-13-2019 at 10:17 AM
So...I couldn't make it to 7 days! H2 was not strong enough...shame...

Early Sunday, reflux was so so bad I decided to go back on my PPI...and had to take 80 mg at first, it was soooo bad.

Today, after a long discussion with my friend (pharmacist) and an other (less interesting, he only talks about meds) with my cousin, also pharmacist, I finally decided to try an other approach.

Since my last research does show that the hernia is raising my stress level

Trying to stop the PPI...again...and surprise!

by Sandra3 on 05-10-2019 at 09:01 AM
On Wednesday, I realized that my GP was off on holidays, and since I was not going to wait until next week, I spoke to the nurse, and decided to give a try to the H2(Zantac).
It's been three days, I did lower my carbs a bit, but not that much...and surprise!!
6 pounds lower!!!
So I won't jump up and down right now since it has to be showing up several times on the scale to be "real" and not just water retention getting better...
But the encouraging thing :

New whale...new scale...

by Sandra3 on 05-07-2019 at 02:56 AM
The last past months since October feel like it's been one setback after an other.

And with many issues pilling up, one that sub-stain hard and strong is weight regain. I feel like a whale again.

After I was done with months of prednisone, I was hoping in February to see my weight go down, like it did since the sleeve. One week of prednisone would make me gain like 5 kgs (5 months out) but 3 weeks later it was all gone! same thing happened when I was like 18 months

Veggies or no veggies...

by Sandra3 on 04-12-2019 at 02:46 AM
Katrina made an interesting post about apples a few days ago, I will share my last experiment with veggies. So weird....I don't know what's going on!

Before the sleeve, I had a hard time eating veggies, because my kind of IBS couldn't stand fibers, so I was limited in my choices.

Post sleeve, for some mysterious reasons, I was able to eat many more veggies!! My IBS was almost gone!
But a few veggies I liked and could eat before sleeve with no issue (cruciferous:

Ready? go!! exercise starts in two weeks!! yeah!!

by Sandra3 on 04-01-2019 at 04:33 PM
I had my one month post-op this morning (hysterectomy to stop hemorrhages)
so far I'm doing great, still little pains but no more bleeding.

The surgeon seemed very happy about all the scars and cleared me to start (finally!!!!) my exercise routine in two weeks!! Counting the days!

Pathology report was good too. I'm very glad I did follow my instinct and went for the "full surgery" and not the conservative. Because the report did show several issues
