I hope everyone has plans for the holiday. How to handle food issues. How to get in exercise and water. How to be thankful for all that we have and are.

What are your plans for: Thanksgivng emoticon and Xmas? emoticon **


Thanksgiving plans =

* I plan to go to Walmart on Thanksgiving Day

and stand IN line @ 4pm for the 6pm Black Friday sale that begins at 6pm.

WHY?

For a 50-inch Emerson Television that is on sale for $218.00 emoticon

It will be worth standing in line for it... emoticon emoticon emoticon
and they have the 1-hour guarantee... that if you are online and you get to the front and they run out of t.v.'s then Walmart will give you a ticket GUARANTEEING you that same t.v. by Christmas! emoticon

so YES I am getting a 50-inch T.V. for ONLY $218.00 plus tax, yahoo!!!!


Tomorrow: 11/21/14 I will partake in a Thanksgiving luncheon at work emoticon and NOT overdo it... absolutely NOT.


emoticon Christmas.... I will be enjoying my new 50-inch t.v. emoticon



NOTE: ordinarily I would have piged out on the Holidays but NOT this year..

this year it is NOT about the food for the first time in my life...

it is about being alive and being Grateful, hugssssssssssssssssssssssss

It is about celebrating LIFE!

New week, new start!

I'm trying to get back to my routines that helped me be successful - like reading and posting here.

Nov is a tough month for me emotionally - it's been 1 yr since my dad passed & 2 or 3 since my beloved aunt passed. emoticon

My food choices are getting better and my activity level is slooooowly getting higher.

Happy Day!

JMORRIS85,
You need to share your concern about coffee with your medical team. They may be able to help you find a way to deal with staying awake. Your medical team will help you figure out what is best for you and your medical conditions.

One of the biggest problems after surgery is dehydration, coffee, caffeine will cause you to pee out your water intake. They want you to get 64-84 ounces of water in a day which is hard to do especially when you cant drink 30-40 minutes before or after meals. You can have your coffee just make sure you drink 8-16 ounces of water for every cup of coffee.

She told me that people were waking up after surgery with bad headaches, and that they realized that the ones who were having the headaches were coffee drinkers.

I have narcolepsy, and the medication does not work well enough by itself. I usually wind up drinking a pot of coffee just to get through the day. Without coffee, I can not stay awake to drive or to work, and by the way, I commute an hour one way to work.

I was never told I could not have coffee. I only drink it on the way to work in the mornings, but it helps me get to work and start my workout! emoticon

What is the reasoning they are telling you? I gotta always have a reason.

Why do you have to give up coffee to have weight loss surgery? I can handle giving up food easier than giving up coffee.

I had a sleeve done on March 2013 and I have lost 100lbs. They want me to lose another 60 lbs by March 2015 so I can have an RNY. But though I have not gained any weight back, I have not lost any either. It is just a tool, for sure. I know I just have to keep trying and making sure I do not gain. It is difficult.

Slow but steady wins the race!

Well all is going well. The holidays are fast approaching and the leaves here have turned their reds and yellows-the pretty fall leaves are out. Pumpkin time! Harvest time-a lot of good vegetables and fruits are out.

Busy at work (our hospital)-tis the season and it looks like it started a little earlier than usual.

Patty, I know how you are feeling. I lost my dad when I was almost 2 years out from RNY. The stress of that situation and the situation with my mother since that time has given me much stress and I re-gain about 1/2 what I lost.
At 4 years out, I am now handling the stress better and see a counselor regularly. It really has helped. I am starting the weight loss cycle again and all of you are right the first thing is to get the exercise time up. I am also facing a hip replacement revision surgery hopefully in January, and see the rheumatology specialist next week to discuss the joint and bone problems that seem to give me pain all over my body.

I think Nena is right to focus on staying healthy and take better care of me.

Sorry about your Dad, Patty. I lost my mom a couple of years ago and went into a 'funk' for awhile. A few months back I came back to myself and remembered why I need to stay healthy. So I got back on track and I'm doing great.

I had open RNY bypass surgery over 14 years ago. I was post-op for about five years before I started gaining. I never got that I had to take care of myself physically and nutritionally. After a significant gain, I started a thought process to tame the appetite in my brain. I took baby steps to change and they all worked.

Any weight loss surgery is only a tool. I felt I chose the correct one for me, but it is only a tool. I must feed my body and not that evil, old appetite in my mind. Once I got that figured out the rest is easy.

And always, always, always remember that you can gain the weight back if you eat the wrong foods all the time.

I was a cash patient and I must never forget that, too. emoticon

There's a brighter day coming...

Eleeney01,
I had the sleeve done in 2008 and I must say, I wish I had chosen the bypass at that time, as the sleeve worked for about 6 months and it all came back within 18 months. Just my own experience here.

I celebrated my 2 year surgiversary on 10/8 emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm pondering writing a blog, but meanwhile, I'm still trying to wrap my head around all the changes and 'stuff' I've been thru in the past 2 years.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My lowest weight was 184 (I'm 5' 8 1/2") and wore a loose size 10 and actually zipped up a size 8 jeans!!! emoticon

During the stress of my dad's final illness and passing last Nov, I gained and now hover between 189 - 194.

I'm trying to get back into my 'zone' where I write here a bit every day, eat reasonable portions of healthy food and walk every day (I was even jogging a bit!!!!) Binge eating is decreasing and I MOST of the time I'm making good food choices again. Baby steps.....

Hi Sparklers!
I haven't been around for quite some time. I will be two years out December 7. I have come back to try to lose eight pounds I have put on. I am sure it is a change in my choices of food and amount of exercise that brought the eight pounds back. It has all happened since June too. I will be tracking my food and exercise so I can bring that focus back that I had before June.

So I hope to be chatting with you all to get inspiration. it's nice to see some of the same faces.
Hope everyone is enjoying this great fall season.

Congratulations!!! You can do it!!!!! Start a journal with your beginning weight, measurements, thoughts, etc plus a before picture. Add to it as your journey moves along. It is great to look back on.

Good Morning
I'm new to this site. Am in the processes of prepping for the sleeve surgery. Have seen the mental health nurse, taking a 12 week class, if all goes well should be able tohave surgery in December/january. Am pretty excited. Have to lose 20 pounds before they will do it. Glad to have team to talk to about pre and post surgery.

You can do it!!! Just don't get 'hooked" on using the Ambien. Also try natural ways to relax and then fall asleep.

The past 2 days went well food-wise. Slllloooowly getting back into my groove eating/drinking routine.

After not sleeping much for 2 nites in a row last week, now sleeping 6-7 hours per nite. THANK YOU Ambien! :)

Well, I am home from my doctors appointment. Two and a half hours there and two and a half back! I did not have particularly good news. The cardiologist said my heart is compromised because of my weight and the surgeon will not do the RNY. I have to lose 60lbs in the next six months. That is before she will consider surgery. I understand but that does not mean I have to like it. So I am 456 lbs today as my starting point. Away I go!!

Since August, I've been dealing with settling my dad's estate. That stress took my focus off my health emoticon

Now that things are 90% settled (details as well as my emotions) plus the fact my upcoming 2 yr ck in with surgeon is in Oct, I'm getting back on track.

Today's post is my start! Baby steps! emoticon

Happy Day!

For those of you with arthritis my naturopath is having me try a supplement called Boswelya Plus 3 capsels am 3 pm. (6 per day). It will help reduce the inflammation and we hope that I will be able to decrease or stop the nsaids I have to take in order to be able to move. 4 months till hip replacement revision (17 yo hip replacement). Yes my back specialist is the dr who told me to have my naturopath prescribe a supplement.
So if you have arthritis you may want to look this supplement up and discuss it with your medical team!
I will let you know next month how much it has helped me. My bottle is the in the mail via amazon right now!

Hope all of you are doing well! Now that temps are starting to come down I will try to get back on exercise bike.

Did well on the 14 days at sea and the 4 days in Seattle. Lots of walking got in. Only gained less than a half pound and lost 4 the next week so probably fluid retention when weighed as we got back. Have had some chips since getting home and gained back about a pound. Curtailing those from the house and joined a gym in our new town. Planning to go in for my annual check up when we go back to Virginia in October.
