    Thanks for the reply! I love both of them and they are a staple in a low carb diet, I hope after surgery I'll be able to eat them also, along with brussel sprouts and cabbage...

    Thank you! I walk just about everywhere, and I also am a big fan of weight training, but I also take swim strength training classes three times a week as well. I highly recommend swimming of any kind if you can get to a pool/lake/whathaveyou, especially for people recovering from injury; it's so low impact on joints and burns sooooo many calories. Plus it's swimming so it doesn't feel like exercise. It just feels like fun!

    Hi Sandra! I appreciate your input. Tell me more about your body composition scans. Have you had the DEXa scan?

    Hi Sandra! How are you doing? I started an accelerated nursing school back in June so I only have a couple of minutes a week or two weeks to come on here and see what's new. Unfortunately, my stomach is about the same size it was 6 months ago, but I'm sure I'll reach my goal. At this point, I doubt my stomach will change much without me actually exercising so I'll be making time for that I hope everything is going great for you!

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
