    Thank you! I'm feeling really good too. I'm enjoying getting my cardio in; there's a nice park nearby with a lake that I walk around...did 3.5 miles after work tonight...with my steps from work and walking the dog I'm at 5.1 miles total today. Never thought I'd enjoy this so much! LOL

    How are you feeling? Progressing well?

    That would be great! I don't venture to OR much at all...in fact I think I've been just once in the time I've lived here. I have a friend who lives in Vancouver WA area and we met up and spent the day in Portland. But we've lost touch lately and that was years ago.
    If you are up this way I'd love to meet up!

    That would be fun! I'm actually south of Seattle, in Puyallup. You're in OR? Do you make it up this way often?

    The eating is going well, however I was starting to get really bored with the simple foods I was eating. Yesterday I made a chicken salad with ingredients I already eat but a touch of added mayo. It was good, broccoli, carrots, chicken, avacado. I had a really bad lower tummy ache last night, crampy. So not sure if that was what caused it. The veggies were raw. It is crazy how little we can get by on. In the past I was always told you won't loose if you don't eat enough. I've been craving crunchy things too. I just drink more liquids. I'm not sure I'm getting enough liquids either and haven't been measuring. I need to do that. I don't feel dehydrated though. When you say regular food what are you eating? I have thin sliced turkey and beef lunch meat, avacado, cooked broccoli and carrots mostly. I also bought some frozen turkey meat balls. And Costco has these great little round egg things with carrots, broccoli and quinoa in them. They come frozen and are the perfect size. Garden Lites Super Food Veggie Cakes

    Hi Juanita! I'm sleeved since Monday, home yesterday afternoon and feeling pretty good overall. How are you doing? Bet your glad to be past the liquids phase? I'm tolerating it okay, but its only been a couple days

    HI Juanita, I am pleased to hear that you are doing well. I don't have a doctors check until 6 weeks post surgery. The dietitians called me one week after surgery and I see them next and then the surgeon unless i have any problems. I have been walking everyday and its so nice to go for a walk. The hardest thing is being on liquids for 4 weeks. I am not hungry and don't have a desire to eat but i am bored of just soup, water and shakes. I make my own shakes/smoothies and soups, but its still boring.
  7. I'm doing good. Down almost 15 pounds, but i'm ready for my pureed foods next week! Soup is getting old...lol. I'm going to attempt a 10k on Sunday. I was supposed to do a half marathon, but it's too soon. Over all, I feel really great. How are you feeling as your date gets closer?

    Actually, my date has changed and is 5/7 - I can't figure out how to update it.
    I'm excited that I finally have my final approval and am good to go.
