Foods I Miss & Weigh-in

This week I weighed in at 243 which is a 5 pound loss for the week. More than usual. Probably because I’ve been sick and have had a hard time eating enough. I’m feeling better now though. There are certain foods that I can’t eat now that I’ve had weight loss surgery. The foods I […]

The Pros Still Outweigh the Cons for Weight Loss Surgery

I’m a little ambivalent about the surgery sometimes. But overall, the pros still outweigh the cons. No pun intended. I’m still glad I got the surgery. And the more weight I lose, the more grateful I am. But it’s hard sometimes. Sometimes I’m like, “Dude, this is easy. I can kind of eat whatever I […]

Measuring My Food and Weighing in

This week I weighed in at 255. That’s 3 pounds lost this week. That seems to be about my average. I’m feeling better all the time. Mostly. I feel pretty frustrated about the fact that I’m finding it harder to keep down my food. The other day I threw up after only taking my medicine […]

Six Weeks Post-Surgery Weigh-in

It’s now six weeks post-surgery and I weighed in today at 258. That’s a six pound weight loss since last week, which is a ton. I tell you, I’m learning that if you don’t lose one week, you’ll definitely lose the next. Overall I’ve lost 30 pounds since the surgery six weeks ago and 61 pounds […]

My Number One Food Craving Since Weight Loss Surgery

Ever since the surgery I have been having this one food craving. Not for anything sweet or chocolatey or any of the stuff I normally crave. Not even Diet Dr. Pepper. (OK maybe a little). The food I have been craving most out of anything else is meat. Especially Barbequed meat. I never ever ever […]

One Month After Surgery

I have my appointment for one month after surgery scheduled for tomorrow. The doctor should approve me to advance my diet to more solid foods. I still have kind of low energy and I’m hoping eating normal food helps. It’s already one month after surgery! Within the first 3 days of the week I lost […]

3 Weeks After Weight Loss Surgery

It’s 3 weeks after weight loss surgery. I weighed in today at 270. I lost 2 pounds this week. That feels awfully slow for eating so dang little. But it’s a consistent loss. I’m getting really tired of the “soft foods” but I don’t get approved to advance my diet until I see the doctor […]

2 Weeks Post-op

I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks since the surgery. I’m still on a diet of “soft foods” but thank goodness I’m not on a liquid diet anymore! I’m still tender in the abdomen, but my incisions are healing really well. And no more gas pain. Yay!!! I get worn out easily and pretty […]

1 Week Post-op

Surgery was one week ago. It’s weird because I was wanting this surgery for so many years and now I already have it. It’s definitely been a week of recovery. I’ve been tender and sore and had a ridiculous amount of gas pain, but all of that is improving. I can only drink this much […]
