Pedometers are notorious for malfunctioning.Try moving it to another location on your body. You want it somewhere where it stays up and down and not tipped foreword or backward.

Yesterday I just wanted to eat all day! emoticon emoticon

While I foods I ate were all healthy and not junk, the quanty and frequency were high. I was just HANGRY. emoticon

I think it was the caffeine coffee I've been drinking the past few days (1-2 c per day caff, the rest de-caf).

Today is all no caff coffee and we'll see how that works. emoticon

Pedometer still registering crazy numbers (124 steps ALL DAY??? REALLY?!) Still working the bugs out on it. emoticon

Patty, Did you do well today with what you ate. Healthy and Variety of Colors and as close to un-processed food as possible?

I am struggling a bit now that I am back at work and the pressures are with me while I work.

Sounds like the new meters do help focus on one's performance. Being so short get lots more steps in for same distances. Too cold to walk out so at mall to get steps in.

I'm having some **FUN** these days with my new pedometer. emoticon

I started blabbing all about it on the Exercise Check In thread and realized I should really post my blatherings on my blog.

So altho scale is NOT my friend these days, my jeans are getting looser and my eating is better (discounting my lapse in judgement in putting 'regular' Cool Whip on my sf jello instead of sf Cool Whip....Tummy rebelled Big Time!! emoticon Insert Head Slap Icon Here! :)

Last night after a late night of reunion planning, stopped by McDonald's to pick up a small burger and fries for son to have for dinner. Starting with just a couple of fries as I drove, I ended up consuming the whole bag. Needless to say I will not do this again. Did not have a protein bar in the car so not good planning.

So thankful. Our house finally sold. So glad no longer paying for taxes, insurance,, electricity, yard upkeep etc. on two houses. Stressful. Know I could have gotten more but would have been out the expenses so six of one and a half dozen of the other.

Actually this was the second hip replacement on that hip. I passed all the physical therapy and occupational therapy exercise goals in the hospital. Mostly due to the fact that I had so many restrictions/limitations after the 1st hip replacement. Many of the exercises are the same as for a lumbar spine problems which I struggle.
I do what I can and am working with physical medicine both MD and Naturopath to get the muscles to relax and get flexibility back. Inflammation will go away slowly. I see improvements every day. In a couple of weeks I hope to be back to normal most of the time with set limitations.

Congrats smilingeyes2!
Today was tough for me and gray skies and fog did not help.

My back is bothering me it hurts bad when I sit up from prone position and standing from seated position. Sitting is just painful feels like i am sitting on a sharp rod. It will get better as I continue to heal from the total hip replacement.

Countrymom congrats on your surgery and no diabetic meds. I had my surgery on 12/17/2012 and when I left the hospital I was no longer on diabetic meds, either. It is great!

The surgery is a tool and it is up to you to keep up with what you are supposed to do, etc..
Get plenty of fluids. Walk alot. Follow your Team's advice.

Hi everyone, Hope you all are having a great week.
I just had my first family doctor visit since my surgery 3 weeks ago. My A1C was 5.7 and they told me to stop taking my Diabetic meds. I had not been taken the meds since the surgery because I could not stand the taste of it crushed. They are going to recheck it in 6 weeks, they said, if the numbers come back 5.6 and below I will be diabetic free!!! I am down 35lbs as well!!

To those that are getting all the snow....send me some!!. LOL I miss living in an area that gets a lot of snow. I am in North Carolina near the coast..so not much snow here.

Have a blessed day, Sheila

Hi All;

I know, I've been bad being M.I.A. for a while. But I'm back again and PLAN not to go M.I.A. again.

Been having issues with My Daughter and her Mother so that is some of the reason I've been gone for some time.

I am doing great. I will get a lift for my shoe next Thursday. Can only move forward from here! Today went well. Friend took me to get bloodwork (for warferin) and then grocery shopping. Dinner was wonderful Thai noodles with peanut sauce with chicken and cucumber and cabbage, fresh raspberries for dessert. Lots of noodles left for an few more meals this week! The benefits of RNY one entre spread out over many meals with added protein!
I love the ability to take a nap when tired.

Moving forward with a good attitude.

I came home from Total Hip Replacement on Monday. I was supposed to only have plastic liner and bone head replaces but the surgeon found that the stem was lose (my hip is the old cembented style) so he re-cemented it and made my leg about 1 inch longer. It is really bothering my back and I will see my podiatrist next week to get a lift made for my now shorter leg. Needless to say I am angry about the lousy job my surgeon did. I told him that with my bad back even length legs was of high importance.
After the surgery appointments are complete I will switch to another surgeon for future.

Energy is good, PT told me to back off the walking as I was doing too much. I was told in the hospital that they did not see people recover from hip replacement so quickly. I was mistaken for a visitor frequently after day 2.

It will be 3 more weeks before I return to work.

Hope everyone is doing good. Just woke up. Hubby and I work nights and so sleep during the daytime. Off work tomorrow night so it will be great to get some things done in the am- hair cuts, store and finally getting my ears pierced. Hubby and I both need our hair trimmed.
The place for ear piercing does not open until 10am so that will be the last thing we get done before heading back home.

Congratulations on the surgery!!! Remember to sip, sip, sip! sugar free popsicles and pedilyte pops are clear liquid and good for crunch and fluids. Powerade zero another good one due to electrolytes which your body especially needs right after surgery. don't forget to let your body rest. It has just been through alot.

I think the 'hardest' part of my experience is coordinating what my mind thinks I should eat (what and how much) with what makes my tummy happy. emoticon

To quote a fellow SP: "When I eat crap, I feel like crap." Otherwise, WLS saved my life!

I didn't have much pain at all or any other issues.

I have given in to a couple of graham crackers every now and then. At work around 4am when we are starting our morning blood draw EKGs and I am running around on my floor (I work on our Cardiology floor here at the hospital-night shift.)-my blood sugar has been dropping about that time and my surgeon told me to get a couple of graham crackers for that.-or peanut butter and crackers.

Hi everyone. Just checking in to say howdy. The past few days have been quiet and I appreciate it so much because it has allowed me to catch up on some rest and other stuff that was needing to get done.

Back to work today.

I was proud of myself for remembering vitamins and packing a protein filled breakfast and lunch. :)

I am still struggling with the darkness of winter making me tired. Job stress is very high. I am doing better with family stress. Financial I was just given a at large rent increase again making it difficult to do more than pay rent, gas, & food. Plus I need 2 tooth implants at $$3,500 to $5,000 each. Not sure how to do it.
The good thing is I am slowly loosing the regain of last couple of years. It is hard to remember that I am 4 1/2 years out from RNY.

Wishing all of you a successful new year.
