  1. Well I have made it to Month 1 and 25 pounds down!! The only compliant I have is my vitamins make me nausea no matter the time of day I take them.

    I have to say, turkey chili sounds amazing right now. I am still doing lots of protein shakes.... not the most fun but I really want to wear my goal shirt for X-Mas Eve. I have always rewarded myself with food so I am having to change my whole mindset. Not the easiest thing ever.
    My surgeon in 5 hours away so I won't see her in person until next July. I just do phone consults (thank goodness no post op complications).
    STUPID FREAKING AVATAR!!! I have had exactly the same problem and it makes me feel dumb. I have no idea how to fix it. Not the most computer savy person ever, to say the least.
    I am mostly excited for crunch (six days away). I super duper want some tomato and basil wheat thins. Never realized what it was truly like to obsess about a food until this. Still, I am so happy and feel so good! My walk Sunday with my son was great. I can already see a major change in what I can do.
    If you don't mind me asking, what do you do? I work in hospital admitting and am going to school to be a teacher (-= I LOVE KIDS!
    Talk to you soon I hope.

    Open the image with paint and then 'resize', switch to 'pixels' and enter the max pixel size. I think it's like 150 or 200 depending. save, and upload it. Worked for me.

    Hi Amber!
    How's your Monday? I am feeling good but still fighting mental cravings more that my body actually needing something....grrrr. I am distracting myself with Christmas and 50's Pandora....

8 Days Post-Op

by Ambersnewlife on 11-30-2016 at 08:47 AM
I have survived my first week!! I went in kind of scared on how much my life was going to change post op after a lot of stories I had read about people being super sick after. I woke up from the surgery SUPER sick and immediately went to what the hell did I do. Luckily after the anesthesia wore off I felt great well as great as one can after a surgery. I had a really hard time at first getting the protein and liquids in but as of day 5 I noticed I could get more in not quite as worried about

I had my surgery on 11.22.16. So far all is good amazingly. When they first woke me up I felt like death I've never done well with anesthesia always wake up sick so they gave me extra nausea meds before i woke up didn't help 2hrs later finally the nausea slowed long enough for the journey home. I've been wide awake for what feels like hours now minimal sleep. Lots of back pain in guessing it's the gas? I hope the next few days goes just as well as the last 24hrs fingers crossed. I can't wait

Well I'm trucking along on the Pre-Op diet of 2 protein shakes a day 1 healthy meal and as many green veggies I want for almost 2 weeks now (even tho some days I felt like I was starving!) thought I was doing pretty good all gun-ho about it excited until I weighed my self today boy oh boy what a mistake that was. I never weigh my self EVER EVER but I thought what the hell I've done really good no cheating whatsoever. I lost 0 lbs in the last 10 days talk about a crushing to your soul. Just
