So Another couple weeks go by

I am still trying to figure out what I can and can't eat. Some things still go down much easier than others.

It can be frustrating at times, but then I realize I've lost 40 pounds and decide that it is all worth it.

I have been on the boards at, it's been an education. I did some research before I underwent surgery, but really relied on my friends (whom I trust with all my heart) who had been through this or something similar. I also trusted and relied on my doctor (who is awesome). I'm not a big researcher, but will if pushed. Of course, while getting my "education" from the website, I have invented things that may have gone wrong. Nothing big mind you, but my mind plays tricks on me. I have stopped with all of that, thankfully and am feeling great.

I am also very thankful that I haven't gone through the worse of the complications that can occur. I am also thankful that none of my friends experienced any of those complications. They sound painful and disheartening.

This week has brought more of the same. I still need to get into a regular workout routine, yes I am procrastinating. But I have been doing some stuff at home, so not being a complete slug. Wish me luck on this endeavour.


  1. Start with what you can and will do. I started with just walking. I also used 3 pound hand weights that I lifted when watching TV. I added a bit at a time. It helped when I enlisted my family. My husband usually walks with me, and my girls do the Zumba and dance things with me. They usually get me going when I can't get myself going. :)

  2. Congrats on the 40 pounds! Your butterfly is moving right along up there. :-) Keep up the good work!

  3. Linda and Karen, thank you so much for the encouragement. I am feeling better about the working out. Just need to get there!!
