I just got my blood test results back from my physical a few weeks ago. Iron, Vitamin D, and B vitamins were all ok. My thyroid is okay. Only areas that were a bit off were cholesterol (198) and folate. See? I DO need to lay off the fats! I go for a mamogram on 7/9 and then I will schedule an appointment to go over all the results - and get a copy for my records.

Were you told they were okay or do you get copies of your labs?

B - Coffee protein shake with sf white chocolate powder (boy do I love this stuff)

L - sausage/cheese again (made two yesterday, only ate one) and maybe some asparagus in a bit

D - not sure, I have chicken but lately I am just not in a chicken kind of mood. I might go to the grocery store. I need a few things anyway.

Some days I am a bit low, but other days I am a bit high (since I have VSG and no malabsorption my recommendation from my surgeon is 60-90). Sometimes I get sick of meat and start eating more veggies to feel full, and an extra shake in the evening.

Lunch was Cafe Brazil. Meh. I had a cup of chicken tortilla soup (no chicken to be found in it fyi) and a house side salad, dressing on the side. I ate all the mushrooms, tomatoes and cucumbers off the salad and just a little bit of the lettuce.

Snack was an apple. Later snack was mint cookie protein.

I've been asked to be interviewed for a "health news" newsletter/newspaper that's placed in doctors' offices around the area/region. It has always seemed to me to be more of an advertisement system... I'd be in the article along with my WLS surgeon and maybe my nutritionist. I'm fairly certain there will be pictures involved. I am kinda flattered, but also a bit apprehensive. Any thoughts on this? What would you do if you were me?

I'd say go for it, so long as you would not be embarrassed by it if someone who didn't know you were ever heavy or had WLS saw it. I am going to be in a UK women's magazine lol perfect scenario because I can share my success but no one there knows me lol

D2 - <4

Alkaline Phosphatase - 68
Bilirubin - 0.4
Calcium - 9.6
Sodium - 139
Chloride - 102
Carbon Dioxide - 26
Creatinine - 0.6
Glucose - 89 (I was averaging 350 pre-surgery!)
Albumin, serum - 4.2
BUN - 22
A/G Ratio - 1.8
BUN/Creat Ration - 37
Globulin - 2.4

Total Cholesterol - 147
Triglyceride - 55 (169 pre-surgery!)
HDL - 67 (50 pre-surgery)

If it something you were comfortable with (even if just an advertisement) then go for it. Maybe you'll get hair and makeup lol!

These are good. Total protein is down but your albumin is good. Up your protein intake. What's your average?

Where's the CBC, iron, and B-12?

B - mint cookie protein
L - chicken breast, sliced radish, cucumber, green bell pepper, onion (all raw and chopped) with a squeeze of lemon juice. Hb egg if needed. I'm trying this whole cleaner eating whole foods type thing, but baby steps. I'm going to try to omit wheats and gluten, sugar (I already do this), and possibly dairy. I'm up in the air about dairy - I usually only eat cottage cheese and greek yogurt and I hate to give that up, but I've met a few people that it has completely turned their life around health wise. Post WLS people with the same bloating/gas issues I get.

So, I'm reading about it and looking into it. I know the family won't do it, but I could.

Ran 2 miles this morning with Molly in 21 minutes. Not super fast, but my pacing is getting better! That's what I'm working on lately... pacing so I don't wear myself out in the first half mile and end up needing to walk.

Ok, H&H and RBC are good. But totally important to see what your iron is too! B12 probably okay if you supplement, but it's one of those things that you don't know is low until the symptoms are already causing issues so it's best to watch.

Was sitting at 820 calories for the day, so I just added a protein drink brining me to 1030. Still low but I have no desire to eat. Good but bad. I need to be around 1400. Not happening today. I'll need to adjust tomorrow. When I eat good food I'm consistently too low and have no hunger drive.

I try to get in at least 1 protein shake a day, but need to up that to 2 and even 3 if needed, going forward. I made one for dinner last night with 1 heaping scoop of Unjury chocolate, a tsp of FF SF banana pudding powder, and a tbsp. of PB2 and it was awesome. I put half a cup of unsweetened almond milk (15 calories!) in my fake Bullet, then added the powders, and blended for 1.5 minutes. I added about a cup of crushed ice, and blended again just until the ice quit making noise. It was thick like a real shake w/o being too "milky".

As of yesterday, with my A1C being in the "normal" range, my PCP/diabetes specialist has declared my Type II diabetes officially "resolved" and removed it from my list of current medical conditions in my "permanent" (computerized) record. While I love the weight loss, this has to be the best thing to come out of WLS so far.

B - mint cookie protein
L - hb egg, radish, bell pepper, cucumber, chickpeas with a squeeze of lemon juice - all mixed together except for the egg lol.
s - apple or mint cookie.

Workout - not sure. Insanity maybe, I need to jump back on that again.

Weight was down. 152. That's about 2 pounds. 4 more to go to get to 7/4 goal of 148. I woke up feeling "skinny" until I got on the scale. That "skinny" feeling always tells me the bloating is less and I'm getting the fluids off.

I'm doing okay except today was the revision to two areas of previous plastic surgeries. I now am very sore from liposuction above my belly button and also have about a 4" - 5" new incision in my upper vaginal area where she fixed some puffyness... No running for a while and no walking for at least a few days. I'll be watching my food intake very carefully now.

Just remember you'll probably have swelling and fluid to those areas and to anticipate that on the scale. It doesn't mean you aren't losing, it just means it isn't showing yet!

My son comes home from camp #2 today. I made banana bread last night with some super smooshy brown bananas that I let sit in the fridge for over a week on purpose. I use Splenda and a mixture of flour, whole wheat flour and oatmeal. That way I can have a slice or two if I want and the family still eats them.

No yoga this morning. The studio went to the largest yoga class at Cowboys stadium instead but I didn't care to spend the $35 and gas to go. Spent over $1000 on the two camps for my son along with a whole new camp wardrobe since he grew about a foot I swear. So moneys way tight until Friday.

Slept in.

B/L - mint cookie protein
Need to push the water cuz I feel puffy. My knees feel puffy and ache too.
s - apple or mint cookie protein
D - probably something grilled. Maybe just some fridge stuff, cucumber, bell pepper, etc if its way hot today.

Workout - want to go for a run.

Hi all, I am excited... although it is super hot out, which puts a damper on things... I am going to a big flow event... hula hoop, poi, etc and the best part... it's my first fire event!! It's from 1:00pm until dark, when we'll start the fire fun.

On another note, I saw photos of myself from my brothers birthday party. Although I looked put together, I looked how I feel.... fatter. Time to start tracking everything again. I had a nice "vacation" of not counting (just eating what I am supposed to) and not weighing (just going by how a specific pair of pants fit). I don't know how it is that my pants still fit but my face is rounder I have been struggling with depression since I turned 35 in April. I really don't want to weigh myself as I don't think it will encourage me.

I am thinking of seeing if a doctor will weigh me backwards (so I don't see the number) then weigh me again in a month and tell me if I have lost weight or not.

Do you all think that is crazy???

For some reason I thought I replied to this, but I must not have! Crazy busy week I think...

I know the feeling. I'm a few up from where I lived for a long time. I'd ideally like to lose 10-15. Probably no more than that I think. And while the clothes still fit, I can see the difference - especially around the middle where I can never seem to see anything but fat. Clothes still fit fine, but yeah, it's there. 6 pounds of something is there.

Do I think your plan is crazy? If it were me - yes it would be. But that's me. I'm one of those that NEEDS to see where I am at all times. If I don't then it's easier to kid myself on what is or isn't happening. Pre-op I didn't weigh myself for forever at a time. I lied to myself - I haven't gained, I've probably actually lost, etc etc etc. So for me - doing it blind wouldn't work. You have that accountability of coming back to the doctor wanting to have lost, and that's something, but is it enough? If that's the case, just get a friend to look at the scale while you close your eyes, write it down, seal it and you open it in a month... sort of the same concept. It could totally work for you if your brain is wired that way!

I've been struggling for over a week now. Last week I had stomach problems with restriction and no movement, if you know what I mean. Ugh--tried lots of stuff, finally have gone back to magnesium and fiber caps. Heather--being a nurse, I had the sleeve, do you think I'm absorbing the fiber in the caps??? Just hate to take them if they're not helping. I don't know which is working but something is. I feel better this week but it's a lot of pills to take, 6 of each plus all my other stuff. Ugh Plus I was emotionally a mess too. That's better too but I'm not going to make goal for the 4th. Oh well, such is life, right?

Damage undone... back to where I was Friday. But if I don't push water and keep it up I'll be hard pressed to meet 148 by Thursday. I'm 151 (again) today.

Ugh Plus I was emotionally a mess too. That's better too but I'm not going to make goal for the 4th. Oh well, such is life, right?
The whole purpose of fiber is that it's NOT absorbed by your body. There are two kinds, soluble and insoluble. Soluble absorbs water, keeping stool softer and larger and easier to move. Insoluble bulks up your stool, making it move faster through your colon. You need both. And if you are supplementing or increasing your fiber you need to up your water. Does no good to increase if you don't give it water too. Women under 50 need about 25 grams a day to stay regular.

Went for a 2 1/2 mile run last night. 2 miles with Molly, and the older dog (Tito) looked so excited when I was getting her ready that I told him if "he was ready" when I got back I'd take him for a loop too. Well, when I did the 2 miles and came back he was watching through the window for me so I clipped him in and took him around the block. He's about 7 years old, but he's an 80+ pound pitbull and he has hip issues and arthritis. We've cut back recently on his food (I have, hubby still overscoops) and he's dropped a couple of pounds. He also "plays" in the backyard with Molly. He actually ran for most of the 1/2 mile! I was impressed. Of course when he's clipped in to my running belt he can yank me around if he wants. If he stops (to assert his man-ness on things) it's not pretty lol. I need to get him a pinch collar too if he's to go out with me more often (Molly's won't fit him).

Tonight - probably a run, maybe some Insanity or a blacklight yoga class at a different studio.
