    No problem, Kerry, I work in a large bariatric surgery department and am also a patient so have a unique perspective! I'm sure you'll do great and really it's important to remain positive and not be ashamed of reaching out for a tool to assist with a problem. You got this! Lots of great information here and in the beginning this site saved me many times

Self care in the midst of chaos...

by KerryPG on 04-23-2018 at 09:24 AM
Hello Everyone,

It has been a little bit since I have posted. I have popped on to read here and there but have been so buried in personal upheaval that I haven't had a coherent thought to add.
My weight is at a bit of a stand still and I understand why so I am giving myself some Grace so as to not sabotage the good work I have done both physically and mentally. I am doing the best that I can and some days it feels like an accomplishment just to get through the day.

Second Follow Up Visit Today

Good news - I am a little ahead of where my doctor thought I would be at this point.
Bad news - He prepared me for stalls and plateaus :-( Hide the scale, measure myself and go by how my clothes fit.

Good news - I am allowed to eat soft solid food. I am looking forward to chewing again.
Bad news - My stomach isn't quite ready yet. So I will continue to primarily eat pureed and liquid foods while very slowly introducing solids.

Good news - I am released

25 Days Out - 26 Pounds Down - Counting My Blessings

Happy Friday!!

As I sit here on this cloudy Texas morning, eating my lightly scrambled egg with a sprinkle of cheese I am counting my blessings. I am about halfway finished and I am feeling full. I count that as a blessing. I remember the days not too long ago when I could and would eat an entire medium thin crust pepperoni pizza and not blink an eye. I felt full-ish after it was all gone. I would buy two medium thin crust pepperoni pizzas because I love a two-fer bargain deal

Dizziness & Hunger Montsers

I do fear that once I am able to have real food the "Hunger Monsters" will rear their ugly heads and I will want foods I shouldn't
