    Hello !!! I am so excited to have this done but scared,anxious and every other feeling is starting to hit me too . I started the pre-op diet yesterday and it is hard especially as I am fixing meals for my family and then had to go to the grocery store today. Talk abut never noticing how many temptations are around. You have had an amazing success story and I hope to have the same. I am really worried about my flight home though. I already get motion sickness and then to add the nausea from surgery to it.Also worried about blood clots. Maybe I am just over thinking things. Thanks for the support !

    I am in the mend. Taking sips and walks. Mainly chicken and beef broth and water. Can't stomach the protein shakes yet although it is part of this phase for me according to my doc. I'm thirsty. Can't get it quenched. Oh doing popsicles too. Went for ab15 min walk this morning. Starting to feel excited again. Surgery robbed my excitement for a few days. Lol. But your pics and story and many others truly inspire.

    Good morning.
    I have a few questions if you don't mind
    Can you tell me your starting BMI? Current BMI?
    What did you eat the first 30 days?
    How often do you have to have follow up care?

    Hi Tamera, I know what you mean about this being one of the best summers in a long time! I've worn my swimsuit not only in front of our annual 4th of July crowd here at the house, but I went to a water park with my grandson and never batted an eye. I feel so much better and don't know HOW in the heck I lugged around those extra 94 pounds! I can't carry a gallon of milk in each hand without struggling, and just shake my head when I look at ALL the fat photos of me! I'm glad you checked in!

About Tamera2

Basic Information

About Tamera2
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I'm a married mom of 2, a grandma of 4 and Aunty of 2. I love all three roles. I also love the ocean,spending time with family & friends. I also love discovering new places. I've been overweight for many years. It started when I developed MS in 1997. I became depressed and became an emotional eater. I would conquer the depression and every time I would push through and try different diets; I'd loose weight than my MS, CHF or another one of my diseases would flare up and I would have to ease up on exercise, depression would worsen and the emotional eating/snacking would start again. I'd overcome than I'd develope another disease and have a set back. I was not happy with my life, didn't like how I felt or looked. My weight was out of control and I made a decision to take control of my life and improve my health. After working with a counselor and attend some classes I choose to have WLS. I got my health stable except for developing diabetes,sleep apnea,high B/P . I had the Sleeve and joined the Marathon and found my passion. Hiking and Mt.Climbing. I no longer have diabetes, High B/P, Sleep Apnea. Bye Bypap/Oxygen Woohoo!! I would love one day to help others battling obesity and regain their life back. Maybe one day I will become an Motivational Speaker. I went from living my life either in bed or in the hospital and the little time in between went to my family!! NOT anymore!! I’m free to enjoy life since having WLS. I can do what ever I set my mind too. That is an amazing feeling!!!
