It's a new chapter!

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I started my pre-op diet for Lap band surgery today. I would say I'm excited, but more like terrified! I want this, Lord knows I haven't been able to lose the weight & keep it off on my own. It's just that so much of my life centers around food. Possibly why I have such a hard time keeping the weight off.

We use food to celebrate all aspects of life, from something as simple as just sitting down with the family for a little together time, to all out celebrations and everything in between. Maybe it's time to find a new way to celebrate life. I'll get back to you on that... emoticon

Thank you for your concerns! I doubted right up to the day of surgery. I'm 11 days post-op and just now coming out of the nausea coma. The last 11 days have been worse than any other surgery I've ever gone through, & I wondered at times if I should march in to my Dr's office and demand a reversal...if I'd had the strength & someone to carry my puke bucket for me. But here I am, smiling, laughing & finally beginning to crave food again...I will live. Now to recover, go back to work, and adjust to my new dietary needs. Thank you. emoticon

This site is amazing! I especially love the recipe calculator! I love, love, love to cook & try new recipes. Now I know exactly what I'm feeding my family & how to make it healthier! I use entirely too many prepackaged seasoning mixes. They are packed with sodium! Now reaching for those low sodium versions or looking for more natural ways to spice up our lives & learning where & when to add those veggies & fruits!

  Same here, I love the recipe box, and all the new recipes. Sadly I can't cook very well where I am living right now, but Lord will soon. Enjoy your day.

    I love the recipe calculator too!! So nice to figure out the calories in what I already cook!! Then I can adjust accordingly.

Glad you are finding your way and getting into the swing of SP!! It is awesome!!
