Haven't posted in a while. Lots of things happening.

2-12-13 - broke my foot, 2-19-13 had surgery to put a pin in the bone, no walking for 12 weeks! Was in a boot and used a knee cart to get around. Because of the knee cart my arthritic knee kicked in full mode pain! I couldn't do much of anything. It hurt so bad all the time and was REALLY bad when I tried to ride my recumb bike. :( Went to see the ortho dr and my knee was at a 20 degree angle - normal is 7.
10-23-13 - had total knee replacement, weighed in at 268 (low was 234). Had problems with my blood pressure being too low so they kept me in the hospital an extra day with an IV. Came home dizzy and not able to keep anything down. Lost 10 pounds in two weeks after the surgery.
1-8-14 - dr put me on HP meds. Been running high since surgery - 142/92 average. I feel bloated most of the time but I have maintained the 10 pound loss.
1-31-14 - started at FitZone with a 6-week gift certificate. Haven't been going consistently but have been walking at work and using recumb bike at home.
2-24-14 - started tracking food intake again on SP, blogging daily on SP page the results of the day....holding myself accountable.

When I went to my bariatric surgeon in 10-18-13 I had gained again. She told me that the Bariatric Association had released that people 3+ years out should reduce their calorie intake to 1000-1200. She wants me to stay more to below 1100. No surprise there! I have to go back April 14 for a 6-month check-up to see how the weight loss is going. They were sympathic with all the issues thru the year last year but she wants to check my progress since having my knee replacement done.

With this weather my season disorder has been in full gear this winter - all I want is to cuddle in deep and not do ANYTHING! Full hibernation mode. Doesn't make it easy to keep yourself motivated when you are so BLUE. When I get cold, I get chilled to the bone and it takes FOREVER to warm back up. This morning it was -9 on the way to work.

I truly want to get back on the band wagon and get the weight loss going again. Everyone says that RNY is the lazy man's way out but it's not. It takes will and determination. It takes a want to. If I am to succeed it is up to me! :)

God bless,
Theresa

Maybe you could designate a special cabinet for his goodie foods? One that you know is off limits and can ignore. Or ask them to put the goodies in their room if at all possible. It's so hard when stuff like that is available to us. We just want to eat it up!

I know it is going to be hard, her hubby doesn't eat anything healthy, always junk food. My daughter and the baby eat very healthy so that won't be a problem. I really need to be hard on myself and not let my head to the picking of my choices.

Small steps, but everyday!

So today I have healthy meals planned all day along with a couple of protein shakes. I've noticed I'm not getting all of my protein in like I should. I also plan to walk on my breaks today and this is my biggest challenge of the day.

I have my daughter and my 18 month old grandson living with hubby and I. It's hard because they want goodies in the house and I don't. I've managed to get my daughter to hide her goodies so I don't see them. It helps!

I am doing pretty good getting back into what needs to be done, have decided I did not go through this all for just 99 pounds off, when I still need to lose 100 more to feel like I accomplished what I started out to do

Doing good, thank you. I am trying to keep up with my clothes-hard to. I have comparison pictures on my Spark Page and last Blog.
Started out right before my surgery wearing 4xL scrubs at work (I work in the hospital here) and now I am wearing XL and they are now starting to be a little big-but, I am holding off from buying right now.

Greetings,

I hope you are doing well. I run back and forth from this one and Gastric Sparklers. It looks like the other one is more active, though.

I am on soft foods and can have a little meat-chopped up good and mixed with some gravy.
Tuna I have chopped up good and mixed with something to wet it more to make it easier to go down. My protein drinks, however- the only one right now I can deal with is the Unjury's unflavored and I put it in my low sodium V8 juice. I have a sample variety pack coming in from Chilke so maybe I can have those-we will see.
Skim milk helps as protein. Cottage cheese. I had refried beans and I find them a little salty-so, when I eat them I melt some shredded low fat cheese on it to help.
Can only eat 2 tablespoons per meal and have 2 protein drinks per day and the rest is fluids, fluids, fluids and vitamins, et...

Carol,
I am here, new to this team so I hope that I have not jumped aboard a sinking ship! I had surgery on December 18th of 2012. How are you feeling?? I am feeling great, better every day. I can't wait to be able to eat chunky food again!

Everything went well with the Psych doctor-he went through all the paperwork I had filled out.
I had also included a print out of all the books that I had read on the subject, websites I checked out, etc...So I had looked into it alot for while before starting on the 6 month program.
Plus, in April they had weighed me in at 281.0 -in September I weighed in at 266.0. They tell you here to lose 5% and so I had already done that.

Next I have a support group to go to-which has to be the day I am off from work. I work night shift at the hospital and sleep during the daytime.Nov 5th I am off and it is also a day for the support group-so hubby and I are going to it. He is my support system at home.

Then I have my Pap Smear to get (I haven't had one in 15 years-so it is due)-that is on Nov 14th-the day after my birthday. Then on Nov 20th it is the Pulmonologist to go through his check up to see if I need to have the sleep study or not-as I do not snore and I have no trouble sleeping. But, I cannot sleep at night so it will have to be a daytime study.

Then the first week of Dec it will be my Dietician and my PA.
So with this progession I am thinking either the end of December or in January is when the surgery will be.

As soon as they do give me the date I can set up my FMLA-family leave from work. I work at the hospital that I will be having my surgery at.

HI Carol

Hope you got your clearance from the psychologist. Do you have a date set yet? My insurance had the 6 month jump through the hoops program also. I had the lapband done 2 years ago on Dec. 13. We are glad to have you join us. Let me know how everything is gong.

Hey where is everyone???

Well, things are moving along for me and I get to see the Psych doctor today at 1pm. I was off work Wednesday night so it won't be too bad. I work the night shift and will be working Thursday night. Oh, well-it has to be done for the clearance.

Getting there. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Greetings;

I hope that everyone is doing well. I went for my Info Sessions on Oct 9th and 11th and they went well-I am still tired from being up at that time of day as I work the night shift there at the same hospital. On Monday-tomorrow I will be going to the Nutritionist at which time I will be given further appointments and I can see how things are moving along in this process.

I am on D3-prescription strength now as my PCP found my levels to be extremely low. Seems that alot of people that live up here in Upper New York State have that problem. So, I just started my D3 yesterday-I take one tab once a week. It is 59,000 iu's at a time.
After 12 weeks I go back and get my blood work done again to check it.

Moving right along here. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Greetings Everyone;

I am new here to this forum. I just recently started my WLS journey. On Oct 9th I go for my first Info Session. The second one is on Oct 11th and then my dietician is on the 15th.
I have already been reading alot of books on the subject and talking to a lot of people up here that have already had the procedure (RNY). So, I have been doing my research.

My insurance company said that they would cover the RNY only for me as that is the procedure that would be the best for me. Our insurance here has you go for the 6 month period before the surgery can happen.

So, I will see how things are moving along tomorrow. I go from 3p-5p (need to be there at 2:30pm). emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Amanda, WOO HOO!!!. Now how about an update. : ) I had the lapband done back in Dec. 2010. Went and had my weigh in today and had lost 1 lb. But not that I am out for the summer, I am ready to lose more than one pound a month. I teach in the public school system and stay under a lot of stress most of the year which seems to slow down my weight loss. Ok enough of my excuses. Have a great day.

Hey Everyone,

I'm assuming you mean for staying on track. The best thing for me is writing everything down. It doesn't matter what I'm eating I keep track of it. Sip, sip sip all day long. Get in as much water as you can. It keeps you hydrated and full, so you can't hold a lot of other things.

I hope everyone has continued success on your wt loss journey.

Cassie

Hey Everyone,

I'm new to the team, but not to sparks. This team was recommended by another team member, so I thought I would try it out. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Good luck to every one on their journey. I live in South Florida, and am from NY. I had lapband 1 year ago and lost 80 lbs. Best thing I ever did for myself.

I have a surgery date!!!!
Feb 16th

I'm going to have RNY gastric bypass.
I feel so overwhelmed. I'm very excited but at the same time panic is trying to sneak it's way into my emotions. I have plenty of time to get nervous about the surgery itself. Right now I'm just going to enjoy being very excited. LOL

Sounds like you have a great attitude. Glad you are here. Hope you will post often. What procedure are you looking at? How much will you need to lose?

I had gastric bypass in 2002. I lost 230 pounds and have maintained between 210 and 220 of it for six years. It is a new wonderful life.

The nutrition planner here can be very helpful for tracking nutriends, protein, etc. The teams are also very beneficial. There are sure to be several that match your interests.

Hope you will post often!

Lee

Hello Everyone!
My name is Karla. I'm a 33 year mother of 2 little girls. I'm in the beginning stages of my WLS journey. I have already seen a dietitian and have my education sessions scheduled. My next appointment in Oct 7th. I'm down about 4% at this point and very excited (and scared). I have tried so many times on my own unsuccessfully to lose weight. After a lot of research I truly believe this is my last chance.
I have a positive attitude about everything right now. Which is not normal for me but I am ready for my life to change for the better. I know it's going to be a lot of hard work but I'm ready.
