Protien powder [Jun. 23rd, 2009|03:16 pm]
WLS Nutritional Support

What do you miss most about being a kid?
Hi there, I'm new to all this so please be gentle with me.

Does anyone know anything about the use of protien powder? I have been told by the dietician that I need to up my protien intake significantly. Trouble is, meat makes me sick. I'm not a vegetarian, meat just does not  agree with me post op. My nutrition is now becoming a cause for concern which is a real bummer as i have lost 65 kg in 11 months. I'd be really grateful for any input. thanks x

Thursday morning optimism. [Nov. 6th, 2008|07:45 am]

[Current Mood |accomplished]

I do admit that it's been rough, but all in all, I am so grateful for having lap band surgery.

There will be many more  hurdles, and complications, and challenges- but I knew it wouldn't be easy.

On my darkest days, when I am miserable and cannot deal, I take have to take a step back to recognize what a life-changing experience this has been for me, and I know that I can do it.  I know I can reach my goal weight.  I want it that bad.  All of the pain and discomfort and sacrifice is a small price to pay for feeling this good.

So, all in all, it's been one hell of a journey... but I am optimistic and giddy about the future.

Just a little Thursday morning optimism.  Take it for what it's worth.

Acronyms, anyone? [Oct. 10th, 2008|08:37 am]

[Current Mood |confusedconfused]

Ok, I'm a newbie.  So tell me, guys...

What does HW/SW/CW/GW mean?  I'm assuming that HW is High Weight, SW is... Star Wars(???), Current Weight, and Goal Weight.  I think I'm on the right track here.

Sorry for all of the stupid questions.  Maybe once I figure out what some of this stuff means, I can post my stats.

newbie! [Sep. 6th, 2006|12:00 pm]
WLS Nutritional Support

Hi All!
I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new to the group, and have been reading posts for about a week now. I recently made the decision to have the WLS, after debating on this for over 4 years now. I have my initial consult with my dr in November, which is NOT coming fast enough. I'm really anxious to get the ball rolling. I can't wait to start feeling better, and being able to do more with my family and friends. I will be having my surgery at the Barix Clinic in Langhorne PA.

I look forward to reading and most importantly, learning along the way, as I continue to read posts, etc.

Good luck to each and every one of you.

So if surgery goes as planned? [Dec. 2nd, 2005|04:42 pm]
WLS Nutritional Support

What should i take with me to the hospital?

What did you eat after you got home?

I still can't believe i will be going in to surgery on Tuesday Dec. 6th.

i am going to try and protien load as much as i can.... sucks cuz i didn't have time to do it the way i wanted to.

Did any of you protien load before surgery? Anyone else Type 2 diabetic?

I guess i worry more about healing after because i am diabetic.

Well i have Part 2 of my psych eval... (1st part was the long as tests)
I am starting to wonder what to expect. I have been wondering if i should have researched on obesity help or somesuch.. to see what to expect.

But to be true to myself i have to go in blindly i think.. that is what its there for. To make sure i know what i am doing.

playing in my mind "it's the final countdown"

Thank you to everyone for your support.

My Sister's Surgery [Nov. 3rd, 2005|09:01 pm]
WLS Nutritional Support

Well my sister's (close friend) Surgery was Yesterday @ 930am. She came through very well... so far so good....
She had laprascopic RnY Gastric Bypass. On the table for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

She is doing so well that she will be coming home tomorrow. (me being diabetic, it probably won't be that easy...lol)

I can't wait for mine....

i am getting antsy.

i want this over with.... i want my new body, my new health.
I wonder how much she will lose? lol

i have this strange thing.... insecurity... that she will be tiny and i will still be Big..i have done that with most of my friends.. though i just brush that away... i will have mine soon enough...

November 7th is my Psych eval... then i will find out what other hoops i have to go through... hopefully i can have my surgery by January.
I was told i could be approx. # 30 on the waiting list ...I was told it could be 3 to 6 months ... and the hospital only can do so many surgeries... i think i heard 16 surgeries a month. and october was blacked out due to the troops coming home. who knows how many surgeries they can do with the troops that are home.
