First day of my liquid diet

Monday, January 17, 2011

Today went well. Other then having to go to the bathroom A LOT emoticon. I ate more today then I usually eat. I felt like I was eating all day long.

I am having my Filter put in tomorrow along with doing my blood work & pre-registering for surgery. Then Wednesday I am having a EDG done, because 2 years ago I had one done and there were polyps in my stomach, and the doctor wants to check them again before I get the Band.

Then I will have my surgery on the 27th. It is going to go by fast.

    I'm curious...what is the filter for? I've not heard of that as part of the pre-op. The 27th will be here before you know it. You will do great. I hope the EDG proves no problems.

Finally have a confirmed surgery date

Thursday, December 30, 2010

I go for my nutrition class & my pre-op with the doctor on Jan 4th. Surgery is on the 27th, so I will start my liquid diet on the 17th; the day before my daughter's 19th birthday. I am really looking forward to starting this journey. Hopefully my husband's surgery will be in Feb. sometime.

    Best of luck - I just had my surgery on Nov 17th. Recovery was officialy 4 weeks but I added my school Christmas break to that for 6 weeks off. I'm headed back on Monday - ready!

    Congratulations on getting your date. I think it is great you and your husband are doing this together. Just don't compare yourself to each other.

Saturdays and shopping don't mix

Saturday, December 11, 2010

I don't know why I even tried. The kids were still with my parents, so I thought I would do a little shopping. Bad idea! I quickly came back home and just did things around here. It was a nice relaxing day, after that. I did break down and get the kids McDonald's on the way home, but I made myself a nice salad.


Things are going good

Today I have felt great. I have not been dizzy, nauseous or felt my heart racing. I have felt alert, but not pinging. And the best part is... I don't feel hungry at all. I can feel when I need to eat something, but I don't feel hungry. It's great!

Also, I called my doctor and they said they have submitted to insurance for my surgery. We just have to wait on them to approve.

Bonus - My husband just left for work & my kids are at my parents house!! Mom's home alone!!

I have been on Pristiq for three days now. My doctor gave it to me for an appetite suppressant. It is REALLY working, I haven't felt hungry at all since taking the first one. But... I have been dizzy, nauseous, very awake and sometimes it feels like my heart is going to pop out of my chest. I called my doctor today about it and they said that it should go away, but if it doesn't by Monday or Tuesday to stop taking it and call them. I hope it goes away, because it is working. I have really reduced the amount I eat, and I like that.

    I have not had surgery yet. I still hoping for a Dec 28th date. I have never been someone to eat 3 meals a day. So I am really trying to work on that. But that has made it where I'm hungry all day, when before with not eating I didn't get hungry. So he gave these to me to help.

    Please be very careful with this. Losing weight is not worth sacrificing your heart health. emoticon
