Week 8 Post Weight Loss Surgery
It’s been almost eight weeks since I had weight loss surgery in the form of a gastric sleeve and I am afraid I may have made a terribly costly mistake. The surgery cost me over seventeen thousand dollars which came out of my superannuation and it is starting to look as if I have just completely wasted that money. The first week and a half to two weeks after surgery were great. I was losing about a kilo a day and all the fluid that had been pooling in my feet and ankles went away but I lost a total of eight kilos and then it stopped. For the period…
My Weight Loss Surgery – POD – day 11
It’s day 11 of my 42 day pre-operation diet (POD) and it’s the first day I have not cheated but the day is only half over. I’m feeling a mixture of things. Shame because I have given in to temptation over and over again. Anger towards the surgeon. I just want to yell at him: “HEY – If I could stick to diets and lose the weight myself I wouldn’t NEED the surgery you moron!” Sadness because eating is the only thing in my life that gives me pleasure these days and now I’m about to lose that too. Frustration because how come I can’t get control over this aspect…
Health And Weight Update
They are still checking me for cancer and so far so good but medical providers continue to behave like assholes. Meanwhile my latest diet is getting results.
I'm doing well on the diet but I face the biggest challenge yet as I am being parted from my diet company for a whole week soon.
I have been on my diet for 12 weeks now and it's wearing thin. I am sick of going without my usual foods but I can't give up yet.
Black Forest Cake
I resisted all temptation to break my diet until Christmas day but I couldn't resist the black forest cake.
It is day five of week four of my Lite-n-Easy diet and I am starting to see results. Christmas temptations are not getting to me or not yet anyway.
I'm feeling empty and discontent and it isn't just because I can't eat much. Eating does, however, seem to have been the antidote to these feelings until now.
Alive But Hungry
I'm still alive and I have cut back on the diet coke but my stomach doesn't seem to be able to recognise fruit and vegetables as real food so I'm almost always hungry or peckish.
A Word From God
God spoke to me about my health. He wants me to cut back on the diet coke. This entry tells why.
