My Dietitian passed away

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

My RD Connie Plowman passed away over the weekend. She was training for a marathon when her lung collapsed into her heart. It is very sad.

    I am so sorry to read this! How sad!!!

I'm with you in spirit~ 18 months ago at Thanksgiving time I had an emotional breakdown and finally went to a therapist for help. She was wonderful and we totally connected on a professional and personal level (we knew some of the same people, but not each other). I worked with her twice per week for a month when she passed away very suddenly. Felt like she had the flu one day, went into the hospital and died the next day. Very shocking to all of us!!

I'll be keeping you and your RD in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and 'Be Kind To Yourself' (that's what my friend-therapist always told me)

Getting the implant...

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

No, I am not getting implants, but rather the implant.

Since my R-n-Y I have been concerned about birth control. Actually, concerned doesn't really begin to describe it. Paranoid might? Since I am no longer able to absorb things like a normal person, I have been paranoid that I will experience malabsorbtion issues with my pill. Many of you know how I feel about children... so, I think it is in my best interest to get the implant.

My appointment is for May 16th. I hope it doesn't hurt. Then again, I don't think anything can hurt as much as my surgery did.

Things here are going really well. I am very pleased with my progress. I have had no adverse reactions to any foods that I have had. All is well.

I think that is all for now

    I've heard that women get pregnant a lot easier/faster once the weight drops off. I had my tubes tied after having one child and then my gastric bypass 10 years after that. No chance of pregnancy!

OMG Coffee!!!

Friday, April 27, 2012

I have finally found a dark roast decaf whole bean coffee! I bought a pound of it. It was wonderful.

I ground some up and used my french press this morning to make it. It was a slice of heaven. Since I am not allowed caffeine, I thought I was doomed. Most decaf coffee that I have had lack body and flavor. Most of them are basically dirt water to me. I was at Giant Eagle and found French roast decaf. It is beyond amazing!

I used a little fat free 1/2 & 1/2 - and made myself a wonderful treat!

Eating real food is going well. So far I have not had any bad reactions to anything. I have had...

scrambled egg
turkey chili
turkey meatball w/ small amount of red sauce
98% fat free thin sliced ham w/ laughing cow cheese
pumpkin pie w/o the pie (see my awesome spark recipie for it)
corn flakes (they were alright, but I don't think I will make a habit out of eating them)

Everything has went down well and I have had no adverse reactions to anything. Of course I am taking my time and eating very slowly and chewing everything very well. I ate 1 meatball (1oz) and in the time it took me to eat that my boyfriend ate 7 of them + a plate of pasta.

I think that is all for now

    Glad to hear you have found a decaf coffee that works for you. I've been suffering coffee frustration of late--every brand I formerly liked seems to be musty or acidic now. I'm starting to cut back and considering my caffeine consumption as well. It's possible I may be on a quest similar to yours before long.

Sooooooo Tired!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I need to get it together. I should be going to the gym, but I am sooo tired! I think I am so tired because I haven't been sleeping well at night. I keep waking up. Then the cats know that I am awake, and they won't let me alone and they carry on.

I think I am going to go for a walk outside. That might help get things moving

Surgeon's Appointment - 2weeks progress

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

My surgeon is very pleased with my progress. He has released me back to work, normal physical activity and all the rest of that fun stuff. He has also cleared me to move onto the next stage of my diet.

It is so wonderful to eat real food again.
