emoticon Checking in today thankful for the little shower we had early this morning. It is a beginning and indeed cleaned the air a bit but not enough to help all the forest wild fires . Maybe this weekend will bring more needed rain!
Have a great weekend everyone.

emoticon Checking in on this hot day. Hoping the forecast for rain comes true. We need it for sure.
emoticon Well just spent 2 hours at the dentist office for nothing. Part time waiting for impressions to be made & the rest waiting for a ride home. They couldn't do impressions without the last 4 teeth pulled. I couldn't have that so I am waiting until next week to do the last extractions before hiding away. I have a party (on Saturday) for my 18 year old granddaughter & it is a going away to college party as well. The whole family family will be there. I couldn't go if I had the teeth pulled. LOL yes I'm vain! emoticon

Stock up on sugar free popsicles, pedilyte pops(has electrolytes and you freeze them-great to crunch), powerade zero (has electrolytes)-that is all for as soon as you get home from surgery. they are all clear liquid and some are crunchy to give you something to chew as well. Satisfies the crunching part.

emoticon I'm checking in and sorry I missed checking in yesterday but I slept through the whole day & nite. Went to the dentist Friday & had more teeth pulled. Now I only have 4 front teeth on top so no eating wisely for me or at all. I hate this. I literally look like I was slugged in the jaw. Big bruise & lips swollen. I wish I had had good dental care when I was little & continued as an adult but my kids teeth were more important. I'm sorry for spilling this out on all you. Have a good week.

emoticon It's me checking in. I look horrible right now and won't be eating wisely for a little while. I had my front bottom teeth extracted today and I look like someone who had a stroke or something. Trying to drink is a joke too. Not feeling too well so will probably do a lot of sleeping for a couple of days.

Who doesn't like a nice snack in the evening? lol Try and make healthier choices. I love grapefruit. I buy the jar of grapefruit sections at walmart no sugar added. I have them every evening. They are lower in calories, fat. I also find if I have a craving for something bad....i have a bite or two of it to get it out of my system. Many times what I was craving doesn't even taste good. I then make sure the next snack is a healthy one. Another goal you could do is only snacking every other night. Another good tip is to set a time in the evening when the kitchen closes and no more food is allowed by anyone. Say 7pm. Gum also helps.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

I've been having trouble with evening snacking emoticon I figure I just have to put it out there.

Camping was great, but too short. Work has been crazy busy all week - a good thing!
I'm looking forward to Sat to spend some quality and quantity time on SP

Happy Friday!!

Glad to hear your day went well. Have you ever heard of True Lemon....well they have another little pack called True Grapefruit and it has a bit of citrus grapefruit flavor but not strong or bitter. I like to use 1 splenda to help sweeten it. True lemon will send you samples if you ask.

Well today is a busy day for me. Errands all day. Library, take garbage to the dump, post office, nutritionist office, and then to do some geocaching along the way. Oh and grab a bite to eat. Then home to cook dinner and maybe jump in the pool for exercise. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

What is true grapefruit? Is it kind of tarty tasting? Cannot do sour things. Otherwise will try it.

got off work this morning at 07:30 and went over to cardiologist for stress test-got out of there around 11:am-alot of waiting involved.

We got home, I exercised a bit and had something to eat and then layed down to rest. got up around 6pm-my Windows 10 download was in and ready to install. That went well and so far things are going good-just trying to stear my way around it t get used to it. Hubby is still waiting for his to come in, although I think he is just a little tired of Windows and would prefer to use his android. He has a Windows 7 machine. His laptop is google Chrome.

So, it was a busy day and good thing we are off work tonight.

I pray things go well with your husbands tests Carol. I had to do the stress test before my surgery and I thought I would pass out on the treadmill. lol Now that I have dropped a few pounds I think I could handle it much better.

I need to work on drinking more water. I have slacked a bit. Would rather drink something with a bit more flavor. Today I have mixed in some True Grapefruit into my water....YUM!!! So maybe that will help me get the water in.

Hope you all are doing well.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

It was a busy Monday night at work last night-hope tonight is better. Hubby has to go for a Stress Test in the morning after we get off work. It has to be the chemical one as he cannot do treadmill due to his back. His herniated disc has been giving him a problem.

Wish I was going camping this week end. We are saving up for our 30 yr anniversary trip the end of August. We are in the 90's here in NC today. Not sure what we will do this weekend. Maybe travel to a new area to explore. We went to outer banks last weekend. Love getting out and driving to new places. Hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend. Oh and my July total weight loss is 11.8 lbs. I am so happy!!! Total weight since surgery 121.8

Have a blessed day, Sheila

Didn't make any Park Circuit walk/jog outings this week- 106 is just too dang HOT!! emoticon plus hectic work = more butt in chair time. ARGHHH!

Going camping this weekend emoticon

Activity will be UP and since I grocery shopped for the fam (7 of us going), I bought 99% healthy choices! I HAD to cave on the S'MORES stuff tho emoticon I splurged on apple chips and chocolate coconut chips so I won't feel deprived as the fam is scarfing around the campfire.

I everyone, hope you all are doing well. I have not been on in a while. My surgery date was Jan 5, 2015. I had no complications and everything has gone well. I am going into my 8th month and have lost a total of 120 lbs so far. I have been doing everything the drs have told me and still losing at least 10lbs a month give or take. I have not lost my hair and I pray I don't. Taking my vitamins (when I remember) for the most part and added biotin for my hair. If anyone that is thinking about surgery or just have questions...please feel free to message me. I will do my best to answer. Hope you all have a great week. You get out of this experience what you put in. This is not a quick fix.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

Happy Monday everyone!

Had to take the car to get repaired this morning and it ended up being a lot cheaper than anticipated-so that was good. Instead of it needing Struts-it only needed a Sway bar as that was loose and rattling-due to all the darn potholes up here.

THANKS Carol!
After gently trying to open the back with a coin - it wouldn't budge and I didn't want to force it-, I remembered there were the tools in the box I saved in my drawer.

Viola! Battery replaced and back put on without any breakage emoticon

What then hung me up was figuring out how to re-set the darn thing. After wasting a bunch of time going thru the site's web pages, I finally decided to just wear it 'as is' and let it re-set itself as usual at midnite. emoticon

I am feeling great today! I have lost 10 lbs in the last two weeks, the best since surgery. And I did my measurements today and I have lost inches as well. I am starting to believe I might reach my goal! I have no idea what that will be like.

Had some kind of intestinal bug for a week emoticon

Was still too tired & discombobulated for the next week to really do much emoticon

Today my work calendar is meeting-free emoticon so I can catch up on stuff at MY pace and get back to my eating/drinking/walk-jog routines! emoticon

It's so important to stick to the RULES OF THE POUCH. Yesterday was not a good day due to my not following the rules that include my water and water loading before I eat and waiting for 1.5-2 hours after eating to drink. It is a new day and the only way that I can meet my goal is to follow the RULES and exercise at least 30 minutes per day and I will feel so much better.
IDEAL MEAL PROCESS (rules of the pouch):

1. The patient must time meals five hours apart or the patient will get too hungry in between.

2. The patient needs to eat finely cut meat and raw or slightly cooked
veggies with each meal.

3. The patient must eat the entire meal in 5-15 minutes. A 30-45 minute meal will cause failure.

4. No liquids for 1 hours to 2 hours after each meal.

5. After 1 to 2 hours, begin sipping water and over the next three hours slowly increase water intake.

6. 3 hours after last meal, begin drinking LOTS of water/fluids.

7. 15 minutes before the next meal, drink as much as possible as fast as possible. This is called "water loading," IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN DRINKING OVER THE LAST FEW HOURS, THIS 'WATER LOADING' WILL NOT WORK.

8. You can water load at any time 2-3 hours before your next meal if you get hungry, which will cause a strong feeling of fullness.

These rules work soooo well if you just follow them. I don't feel hungry and I get my water in. I also have lots of energy so that going to the gym is a no-brainer. I hope these rules will help everyone. If you haven't been following them, it will take a few days for your body to respond. Just hang in there. emoticon

Thanks Carol! Nice job! ❤️😄

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.... Www.like

Had my RNY on 12/17/2012 and have lost over 183 pounds.
Moving right along.

It is a journey. The surgery was a tool.

Great idea to do a check in thread without tons of separate conversations! Thanks! I had an open long limb RNY 15 years ago. I lost 170 pounds from my highest weight, the day I first went to see the doc about surgery. I was 340 lbs. then, I lost 23 pounds to qualify for pre-op approval. In the first year and a half I lost down to 170 lbs. I then got scared by how vulnerable I felt, as a survivor of extensive childhood sexual abuse. I gained back 10 to 20 pounds, which I go up and down with. My original goal weight was 140 lbs, but I never made it. But I have maintained a 130 lb weight loss since the pre-op qualification. I have learned a lot along the way! I was told by the surgeon that if I wanted to see permanent results, I had to be willing to go the distance, seriously! That was defined by him as no sugar, ever, no refined carbs, either, protein, veggies then whole grain carbs, in that order.
I have b.s.'d myself into taking back and surrendering over and over, since then! But, now I am 51 going on 52 yrs old! I have been very committed to following my plan and getting support. For me, it was always about medicating my emotions with food. So, I see a great therapist, work hard at writing, expressing feelings, meditating and finding my peace within, not outside! I have come to realize that I am doing all of this because I love myself! It's not easy, but I have what it takes to love myself through releasing the last of my protective wall!
I hope that you have a great experience with your surgery, and that all are well this weekend!
I am recovering from pneumonia and focusing on healing this weekend!

Softball tournament all weekend emoticon

Tummy acting up for last 4 days- had some kind of intestinal bug for the first time since WLS emoticon

Interesting that my interest in food / appetite seem to have re-set to my days-post-surgery levels, meaning I just **don't** want to eat emoticon I am sipping my water tho - don't want to dehydrate! emoticon

Made homemade pizza for the guy I'm dating last night, made it as low fat as possible and he loved it (didn't even realize it was "diet"). Heading up to Michigan to see family on Sunday, then a busy rest of the month. The neighbor guy across the street told me yesterday that I'm disappearing I said THANKS!! :) Now if I could just get rid of this pesky cold!

Glad to see you were out and about, Patti. Weather here has been rainy and nasty-hope to get a break from that this next weekend. My husband and I want to get out on our weekend off.
Working at the hospital you have to work every other weekend. We work the night shift and so have to plan things around our sleep for that. Plus, the weather has not been a help lately.
