Stage 3 is a go.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

So I've started stage 3 foods. This has been a little more difficult. I can't seem to sense when I'm full and some foods are disagreeing with me. Such a bummer. I was so looking forward to chewing. Tonight I ended up having soup because my stomach was so upset.

I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. I saw my surgeon yesterday and he said I'm doing really well.

I am dropping clothing sizes and it has really been fun. Until I can't find anything to wear and then I'll be scrambling! LOL!

I'm sure I'll get this worked out. If you have gone through this I could sure you some pointers!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Hugs,

Keri

I have no helpful advice because I haven't been through this process. I know with patience and persistence you will find a new way of eating that is satisfying and good for you.

    So glad that everything is going well. You'll be chewing in no time.
But it sounds like you may have to invest in some belts. :)

    What are stage 3 foods? Are there any more stages? I'm sure in time you'll get this whole thing worked out.

Progress in the works...

Thursday, November 13, 2014

So it's been three days since surgery.

I am still pretty sore and on pain meds. Thank goodness! I have 5 incisions on my stomach and all of them look good. Two are swollen but it looks like they did the most work.

It is really different than I thought it would be. I'm not hungry at all and DH eating doesn't bother me so much....yet. I'm drinking and eating everything out of one ounce measuring cups.

They say my stomach is now the size of a small banana so 4-6 oz. really fill me up. But I am supposed to keep sipping every hour.

I am also exercising already....well moving. I'm supposed to get 5-10 minutes of walking in twice a day. Unfortunately, my treadmill is buried under a bunch of junk....DH is going to help me uncover tonight...so I have been using my Walk away the pounds video. That is a low impact walking video and it has been a great start.

So my change has begun. I feel it, I know it....I embrace it. It's not easy.....but it's mine and I am going to use it to it's best.

The key has been all of the great support I have. I can't even begin to measure its value.

Hugs,

Keri

    Keep that positive attitude and follow the doctor's orders. A little activity will help with the healing and you will feel better than just lying around.

I did it!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

I came through surgery really well.

In addition to the gastric sleeve, they removed my gall bladder and repaired a hernia. So I was a triple threat.

But I'm home now, and recovering well. I'm sore and tired but moving around fine. I can't believe I have finished this part of my journey. It took so long.

I am on Stage Two of my diet which means cream soups, juice and jello mostly. And lots and lots of water.

This is the beginning of the rest of my life......I'm excited to see what's next!

Thanks for thinking about me!

More to come!

Hugs,

Keri

    So glad all went well with the surgery. Yikes at least the took care of the other things too, so your down time might be longer, but taking the time to recovery will will serve you well.

You will do just fine. Follow all directions from your Doctor's and rest and heal well. I'll be thinking of you.
