Welcome, MOMMYDOC!! Glad to have you - best of luck for your upcoming surgery!

It doesn't matter how slowly you go, only that you don't stop.

If today were perfect, there would be no need for tomorrow.

Bliss cannot be disturbed by loss or gain.

Welcome to the team!

I also have the magic number 3 at home - 2 little boys and 1 big one (DH).

A Few Rules of Running from Mark Remy:

1. You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip.

2. Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is.

3. Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day.

4. If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you're a runner.

When I had a friend doing low-residue, I realized how precisely the opposite it is to what I'm used to eating. I can't even wrap my head around the rules! EAT mac-n-cheese, but DON'T EAT fruit? Whoa. It'll be a shocker to the system, that's for sure.

I'm sure you'll do fine in surgery, but it is hard anticipating it. Glad to have you on the team.

Welcome to the team, it sounds like you have a full plate! Good luck with your surgery. I know that no matter how long you work as a health care provider, being the patient still sucks, haha.

Hi, found this team when I started suspecting a common thread between my spark pals, and this was it.

I'm a Mom of two boys, and a family doctor, and three is a magic number. Also the number of boys in my house counting DH.

I've been about 135 to 160 lb since I was 11 years old, at varying degrees of fitness. I have never gone for classic diets. I think I've pretty much been doing the SP thing since I was 15, trying out different exercise strategies and picking up healthy strategies along the way. The ones that work for me stick around.

I got pretty fit in med school because I lived in Manhattan and walked everywhere and exercise was the cultural norm, and I was prepping for my wedding. I mostly maintained somehow in residency until I conceived. Wish I'd had babyfit! Instead I really threw away all my healthy habits and quite literally gained a pound every week. Never quite lost it all between the two and finished the second at 199lb. I joined SP in June 2009, as soon as W was weaned and the site would let me on. Tracking has always been my best redirection strategy when things get out of hand.

I set SP aside over the holidays and gained back the 8 lb I'd lost. But in Jan I found out I need a kind of big surgery so I've been working really hard since then, visualizing my mesenteric fat melting away, to reduce my risk of complications. But I'm still wicked anxious (did I mention I live in MA?).

I'm booked for the OR on 3/16 so I have about a week left. I'll post a pre-op photo before I go in as it's the last time I'll be scar free and I have to show off these abs! Not a six-pack but not bad for after two babies.

It will be interesting to see what happens after a day of "prep" (yes that kind of prep) then a day of IV fluids then a day of clear liquids then 2 weeks of low-residue diet. Which means: no high-fiber foods, no nuts or seeds, no raw fruits or veggies. Only white and processed grains, canned or cooked fruits and veg, dairy. So mac & cheese is okay but my favorite TJ's vegetable and flax seed chips are right out. I think I'll have grilled cheese and tomato soup for my first full hospital meal. Wish me luck!
