I'm Jogging!!!

Monday, June 30, 2008

I'm excited because I did not think that I would be to this point yet without a few more weeks under my belt. My daughter and I actually jogged this weekend. Of course I could not complete the whole track my first time, but I did half emoticon I can see a great improvement in my measurements from increasing my intensity.

What's going on?!!!

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

I've just realized something, or should I say that I have just acknowledged something. . . . this job is ruining my diet right now! The first thing I did after having a stressful meeting today was purchase a candy bar from the vending machine!!!!! I have not been to the vending machine in about 2 months, and now this!

    I do the same thing. I have a friend at work that keeps chocolate in his desk for my stressful days. I guess it's better than me keeping the chocolate.

    Stress? Emotional eating? Sometimes the folks you work with just plain make you want to drink, jump, eat chocolate -- well it's better than reaching for their throats! Hang in there - it's not just that job it could be any that you find yourself in!

I'm Approved!!!

Friday, June 20, 2008

emoticonI'm so excited that I can't contain myself. I've been approved for my surgery, and should be having it within the next 2 weeks. I plan to be able to attend my sister's 30th anniversary in August.

    I've been approved, but I can't get in to see the surgeon to schedule surgery until August 1st! I'm looking at not being able to have surgery until mid-August - early September. emoticon

    Thanks for the feedback. Everyone that I've talked to about the surgery has told me to be careful, because no matter how careful you are with your food choices, you will experience an episode of dumping. Have you come across that yet?

    Congratulations! I am 3 weeks post op. Had the Gastric Bypass RNY. I have already dropped 2 sizes in pants and tops. My surgery went very well. I ended back in the hospital less than 2 weeks later but it was something I ate. Had trapped gas and it made me vomit. Other than that it is not bad.

Do exactly what the doctor says and surgery will go much better.

Good luck

Rough Week!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

It's been a very rough past week, and I have gotten a little off track with monitoring my food intake - especially my carbs! There has been so much activity surrounding food, that I feel trapped. Even though I am restrictive in what I take in - it's still too much that I'm taking in. Starting today I'm clamping down and regaining my focus before I get too off track. emoticon

I just found out about 5 minutes ago that my brother David has lung cancer. They have not told David yet because his mental capabilities are that of a 10 year old. We are supposed to have a family meeting with the physicians on Monday to find out more details. The crazy thing is I don't know how to feel! I mean I'm not happy or anything like that, but I can't help thinking of the extra burden this is going to be to Momma. It seems as if she is doing so much better than her children, and has had to be the caretaker for 3 of her children already. I guess this is what happens when you have a lot of much older brothers and sisters. You find yourself dealing with health issues of siblings that your friends don't have to.

    David passed away Thursday evening. I am thankful to God that he did not have him to suffer long, and that David passed away happy and laughing. He touched many lives, as I have witnessed with the outpouring of emotion that has come from people who have encountered him. He truly touched people with his child-like imagination and starry-eyed look at life.

    emoticonDavid was released from the hospital right before the holiday, which was great! They are looking at some test results to see the best form of treatment for him. He was told that he has cancer, but I don't believe that he fully understands the complexity of it, because he is just happy with all the attention he has been getting. We all spent the holiday together, and it was nice. He thinks the attention he was getting from the nurses was because they had a crush on him emoticon

    Thank you CJSTRIP for your comments, they are truly appreciated. I know I have to avoid making rash decisions right now. I'm just coming back from a meeting, and my whole thoughts were - "do I really need this?", is this what I want to be doing years from now - in a meeting discussing budget matrix?
