maybe it's my first slump?

Hi guys!

I think I am in my first slump and I need ya'lls help! I need advice.

It has been 19 days since I was banded. It has been 26 days since I went on my liquid diet, and it has been 5 days since I started my mushie diet. I had lost 20 lbs. before I started my mushies diet. 2 of those lbs. have come back and will not leave.

Can I just say depressing. I had surgery to loose weight. I know in the back of my mind that this is normal and that it will all get better when I can have a fill in late September. I know this is a test. It doesn't make it any better.

I was told by my Doctor to only eat 6-8 oz at a time. Which 8 oz is a cup, right? I think it is any ways! I have measured everything! Never gone over that amount. I am eating right? Should I be eating less? Does this sound right to ya'll? Here is like a sample menu....

Breakfast - 1 cup of Cheerios & 2% milk
Lunch - 1 cup of refried beans & cheese
Snack - 5 crackers (saltine) and a tiny wedge of soft cheese
Dinner - 1/2 cup of green beans 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes

I really think I have been eating about 500 - 600 cals a day.

Things I think I might be doing wrong.......

not drinking enough water
not drinking my protein shakes (which I had one today before I came to work)
maybe not eating enough cals
maybe eating too much

This seems so complicated! I just want to loose weight. I emailed the RN that works for my surgeon. She told me to just hang in there and email the nutritionist and ask how cals I am suppose to be eating. I am pretty sure she would tell me over 600 cals a day? Wouldn't she?

I just want to do this right. I want to be one of these awesome super star banders that looses a ton of weight.....Amy W. comes to mind!

I need advice.....what am I doing wrong!

august 12, 2010 ... the surgery

So, here is my surgery story and a little update on how I am doing. Hope you enjoy! I have been getting some emails and messages lately from ladies that are in the process of getting the band, or even just thinking about it. It has really been inspiring. I think it so important that I use this blog to post my story and information about me and my band! You never know who is reading! ;)

For me to have lap band surgery was a long long long journey. It all started in late January of 2010. I had thought about having weight loss surgery for years, but always decided against it. I would always think, "I can get this weight off myself, I'll just join a gym or start taking diet pills again." Which, I would do just that, and in a year would realize that in fact I had not lost any weight since the year before. To be honest, I would have probably gained weight. In February 2010, I went to the seminar. I wanted to do this so bad, but I wasn't sure if I would have the courage to go through with it. I was also told, due to my insurance company, I would have to wait 7 months to even get a surgery date. I knew it was going to be hard, but I also knew it was something I had to do. I knew there was a lot I was going to have to overcome, spiritually and physically, and I was the only one that could do it. No one was going to be able to do this for me, except for God!!!

So flash forward to August 4, 2010. 2 days after my 28th birthday, and more importantly 2 days after my 7th and final monthly primary care doctor's appointment. I prayed that morning on the way to work. I pray just about every morning on my way to work. I love to drive somewhere by myself and get alone with God! I prayed that God would give me the perfect surgery date, when it was time. I prayed that it would be a perfect date for a perfect surgery. That morning I called my surgeon's office to find out what my next step was in this long and trying process. I told her that I had completed everything. 7 months of consecutive doctor's appointments, sleep study, blood work, and support group. The only thing I had left was a nutrition class, that couldn't be scheduled until I had a surgery date, insurance approval, and a date. When I was talking to her she asked me how fast I wanted to have surgery? I told her that I would like to have it soon. I explained my reasoning, being that I was extremely nervous about surgery I thought sooner would be better. She said "What about next Thursday, August 12, 2010?" I was in SHOCK!!!! I didn't know what to say! I panicked! It went something like this,"Oh, that soon? Will that be safe for my liver? I haven't been on any kind of pre-op diet yet? Oh, I don't know that is really soon? Are you sure that will be ok?" She finally just told me to think about it and call her back in an hour. I thought about it, remembered what I had prayed, called my family, and then returned her call. August 12, 2010 sounded perfect! I was immediately put on a liquid pre-op diet. Immediately, like had a protein shake for lunch that day. I was scheduled for my nutrition class on Wednesday before my surgery on Thursday. Everything went great at the nutrition class; I also did all my pre-op blood work and testing that day. The only thing that was unexpected was that when I went for my last appointment with my surgeon, the appointment where he answers all your last minute questions and tells you everything is going to be fine, yeah my surgeon wasn't there. He had had a death in the family and was unable to be at the office that day. I had to see his partner instead. They assured me that my surgeon would be doing my surgery on Thursday though. Everything went fine. It would have just been more reassuring if I could have meet with my surgeon the day before he was going to operate on me! I had to be at the hospital at 8:00 am on Thursday. I was so nervous!

Ant and my Mommie drove me to the hospital. I didn't talk much. I cried. I cried almost the whole way there. I cried because I was scared. I was scared about the surgery, about the recovery, and if this was the right decision. It is scary. This whole process is. It is unknown ground. I even thought about backing out, but I knew they wouldn't take me back home! I prayed. I listened to my favorite calming praise and worship songs. I cried. I got a phone call from my sweet Gran Gran, that was on her way to the hospital to meet us. She told me she had heard from God and he said "Rest in Jesus." That gave me peace. I could feel it in my spirit. I new if I could go through with it, everything would be fine. We made it to the hospital and they put me in a room a couple of minutes after we got there. Anthony was allowed to go back with me at first. Then they would allow the rest of my family to come sit with me. They gave me my first blood thinner shot, which I would be on 14 days after surgery and Ant would have to give them to me. I got in my gown and tried to relax. I had my Bible clutched to me! Psalms 91 is what I read over and over. Finally they let my family come in. This is who all came to my surgery. Ant (husband), Mommie, Mandy (sister), Meagan (sister), Gran Gran, Paw Paw, Aunt Judie, Nealey (sweet girl in our youth group), and Carolina (sweet girl in our youth group)! That room was packed! I was so nervous they gave me an Adivan for my nerves. I didn't think it every kicked in, but Ant says I was acting really goofy. He said I kept starring off into space and saying really random things. :) I kept on saying I wish they would give me something else, because this isn't working! I had to wait a long time before surgery. There was a lady in front of me that had some complications. She was having her gallbladder removed and a band installed. Her surgery most have taken longer than expected.

Finally it was time for me to go to surgery. I made it quit the dramatic scene. Mary style of course! When the were wheeling me back I was crying uncontrollably. All 9 of my support team was telling me bye, walking with me down the hall. Everyone was crying. :) Well, maybe not everyone, but it sounds dramatic. Once I got to where they prep you for surgery, I was even more nervous. They put my iv in, and then I just had to wait. I was crying pretty much the whole time. I had asked earlier in the day if I was going to get to speak with my surgeon before surgery. They told me no, that there wouldn't be time. Everyone must have felt sorry for me because I was crying so much! The next thing I know, I looked up and there was my sweet surgeon. He wiped away my tears. Put his hand on my shoulder. Looked me in the eyes, and said this "I am going to take care of you like you were my own daughter. Everything is going to be fine. This is the right decision." All I needed to hear. He stayed with me for a few minutes until I calmed down. He patted my shoulder the whole time. Is that not the sweetest man? The next thing I know They are telling me they are going to give me a happy shot and it is time for surgery. They gave me the shot. I didn't feel anything, at least I didn't think ;) I remember getting on the operating table, them strapping my arms down, putting the heart monitor pads on, tilting my head back, and putting an oxygen mask on me. They told me it was time and to think of a happy place. Boom. I was out.

I remember waking up in recovery. The first thing I said was "Praise God!, Do I have a band?" They assured me the surgery went fine, it had taken 40 mins. I kept going on and on about I just loved Dr. Miles. I even told the nurses he was my best friend! It didn't take long until I was out of recovery and back in my own room. Ant was the first one to get to see me. I kept on saying, "I did it!" "Me and God!" My whole family then came in to see me. Ant said the surgeon said everything went perfect. He said that this band was going to work perfectly for me! He put in a 11cc Realize band. I was up walking around in about 10 mins. I drank my fluids, went to the bathroom, and then I was out of there! I felt great! Really not hardly any pain!
The next couple days are a little blurry. I think the liquid loratab might have something to do with it! I was pretty much off the pain medicine by like the 4th or 5th day out of surgery. I had a little gas, mostly in my chest area and under my ribs. Not anything unbearable. I took gas x stripes for the gas. It seemed to help. I never really had any shoulder pain! Thank God! My should hurt for maybe like 30 mins one day! My incisions are little, I think. I have 4 punctures and 1 incision where the port is. They don't hurt, but the one where the port is is a little tender. I have had a little port pain, but nothing to bad. :) Over all everything is great!

Now for a little update. I am down 20 lbs. since August 4, 2010! I am so excited! I feel great! Today is my first day of mushies. I had 3 oz of egg beaters with a little melted cheese this am. I made 4 oz but couldn't eat it all. It is so weird. Having left overs is a strange feeling. I am so not used to it! Did I mention I feel good? I do! It is a different feeling. Something I really can't explain. A feeling of accomplishment. A feeling of excitement for what's to come. A feeling of security. You see a year ago, I could have gone on this same liquid diet for the same amount of time and lost the same amount of weight. I could have worked just as hard, had just as much will power, and accomplished the same feat. The problem would be that I would eventually gain the weight back. It would have been inevitable. The weight would have come back. Now I have security. When I got on that scale this morning, I now know two things that have never been present before. I weighed 290 lbs. I will never weigh 290 lbs again. I have lost 20 lbs. I will never gain that 20 lbs back again. I have security. What a great feeling!

Here is a pic of my incisions. This is when I still had the staples in, and a little swelling! I will have to get some updated pics!!!!

low fat cream soup = yuckey

Hello Everyone!

I am doing great! Still on liquids, but guess what tomorrow I go to mushies! I am so nervous about this.....I know really weird. I am almost just scared of food now. I have been on liquids for so long now, it's just weird. This is the 23 day of my liquid diet. I am so worried that I will gain weight when I go to mushies. Or, that even worse I'll stop loosing weight! Did anyone else feel like this? I am almost a little tiny bit disappointed in my weight loss so far. I have done great so far, I think. I have lost a total of 18 lbs. total this far. I haven't lost any since Sunday. I haven't cheated AT ALL. The only thing that I kind of bent the lines on was I had apple sauce - no sugar added - twice. I didn't really see why that would hurt, because I was allowed to eat sugar free pudding. I don't consider apple sauce a heavier texture than pudding, so I ok'd it :) The only thing I have differently the past couple of days is I really haven't been eating anything, including my protein shakes. I know that is horrible, but I was just getting SO SICK of protein shakes, broth or really any soup, pudding, and yogurt. A girl can only eat broth or low fat cream soup so many meals until it just makes you SICK! I am just nervous. Why haven't I lost any weight this week so far? Is this going to work for me? What if I'm like the only person in the world that can't loose weight with the band, when they are trying and doing everything right?

This is what I am thinking about eating tomorrow...

breakfast - egg beaters omelet w/ cheese probably 4-6 oz
snack - crackers with soft low fat cheese
lunch - 3 oz green beans, 3 oz mashed potatoes w/ gravy
snack - not sure
dinner - not sure, maybe the other 3 oz green beans and 3 oz of mashed potatoes w/ gravy

I know I need to throw in a protein shake somewhere in there. I am thinking about drinking them at night before I go to bed?

I would love some suggestions.....

What did you eat when you where able to move on to mushies?

Ya'll are the experts - what where ya'lls experiences?

life back to normal, well my new normal

Wow. What a great ride this has been. I am back to work today after being banded on August 12, 2010. It feels great, I feel great! I have tons of stories to tell ya'll about my banding experience! Lots of post titles floating around! I will get to all of them I promise!

I am still on my liquid diet. 20 days in. 2 more days to go. Then on to mushies!

18 lbs. down!!!!!!

Did I mention I feel good!

As I get back on blogger this morning from a long absence I am hurt about what has been written about me on an ugly man's, and I do mean UGLY, blog. When is this going to end. I know your right, it probably isn't. I am tired of being nice. Just to clear my record. I started this lap band process in February 2010. I got banded August 12, 2010. I had to wait 7 months for insurance purposes. It was not my choice! It was hard. It was a fight. I did it! God and I.

My surgery went fantastic! My recovery has gone fantastic! I feel great!!!!!

I love all of ya'll, I really appreciate all the kind words and emails that were sent my way!

Ya'll really are the best!!!

I have a ton of catch up work to do today at work, but I can not wait to get back to blogging!!!!

I have so many things to say!!!!!

Fat Goggles

7 days on a pre-op liquid diet will make your fat goggles come off.

When did I get this big?


I was sitting on my Gran Gran's bed on Sunday night and I looked up and caught a glimpse of me in her mirror above her dresser. I didn't even recognize myself. When did I gain THIS much weight?

This is day 7 of my pre-op diet. I HAVE NOT CHEATED 1 TIME.

Let me tell you, it has been T.O.R.T.U.R.E. all the obstacles I have had to overcome. But, you know what? I DID IT! I did it myself, with help from God!!!! Let me just replay to all ya'll everything I have had to go through food wise.

1. I had to SERVE food, I could not eat, to over 100 recovering drug addicts.

2. Anthony's family had me a birthday party. Sweet huh? Guess what it was basically a freaking cook out. That I could not eat. Home made hamburgers, chicken fingers, rotel dip (if you do not know what this is....it is a southern speciality......1 can of rotel (diced tomatoes and green chillies), hamburger meat, and the biggest block of velveeta cheese you can find, all melted and cooked for hours in a crock pot), and 2, not just 1, 2 cookie cakes. They ALL ate this why I ate some nasty tomato soup and sugar free jello. I will have to add that it was nice for his mom to think of me and make me tomato soup, but it was actually HELL watching everyone else eat that.

3. My whole entire family decided to go eat at Olive Garden last weekend. They invited me to go. I just couldn't even go. Too much TEMPTATION. I ate chicken noodle soup instead. Not the noodles or the chicken......just the soup part.

4. I had to cook for my church. I had to make homemade chicken and rice soup. I had to shred delicious roisterer chicken, that I could NOT eat. I also had to make homemade spinach dip.

5. I had to help set up a table of food as long as an entire room for our church meal after service. Half of the table was nothing but desserts. I had to watch everyone else eat and eat and eat, tons and tons and tons of food. I had some juice out of the soup I made. Not the chicken or the rice.....just the soup.

6. There was a huge cake there on Sunday. Probably one of the biggest cakes I have ever seen. My brother in-law made it. He makes the best birthday cakes you have ever tasted. I mean THE BEST. There was at least half of the cake left. You want to know what I got to do? It was my job to cut the cake in gigantic hunks and wrap them up for people to take home. I couldn't even lick my fingers.

Is that not some obstacles?????

Did I mention I am almost, almost, like if a couple hairs fell out of my hair, away from 8 pounds down?????

8 pounds.

I have lost 8 pounds.

I am really proud of myself.

Tomorrow I start my clear liquid diet. I get to do fun stuff tomorrow also. I go to my nutrition class, go to my pre-op appointment, and meet my surgeon. I also get to clean my poop out. So much to look forward to :)

I still can not believe I have accomplished a liquid diet for the past 7 days. I never dreamed I would be able to do it. I think I just knew I had to. This is my only option left. I have to make it work. I feel like I will make it work. I feel good today. I have felt good since I have gone on this diet. I feel light. I am happy. 7 months ago this all seemed like a dream. It feels like a reality now. I know I can this. I already am doing it!

Friday, August 6, 2010


I am on day 3 of my pre-op diet. Pretty good so far. I know it is really really weird but I actually feel good today! I had a massive headache yesterday, and was not sure I could take anything. I had been told previously not to take ibuprofen, alieve, motrin, or aspirin. So, I was a little concerned on whether I could take ANYTHING at all. I emailed my sweetie pie RN at my surgeons office and she said tylenol would be fine!!! Yay, no headache now. I really believe it is from no caffeine or sugar for the past 2 days.

I was a little disappointed this morning when I got on the scale and I hadn't lost an oz. I guess I was so shocked yesterday when I lost like 3 1/2 lbs. I expected it again today!!!!! I don't think I am going to weigh myself everyday anymore........never mind I know I will. It is just so weird because I NEVER loose any weight. It feels so weird that I actually did loose a couple of pounds. The last time I lost weight on a diet was probably over 2 years ago. I went to this steroid crazy Dr. That put me on a weight loss program. Basically just took lots of my $$$$ :) He tried to prescribe me diet pills but I wouldn't take them at first because I wanted to do it on my own. I lost 13 lbs. in 1 month. I was so excited. I only ate foods that "God" made...basically only natural foods. The next month I only lost 5 lbs. he told me it was horrible and it was like kicking him in the balls. Can we say inappropriate??? He then used cussed words in the same sentence he talked about going to church. Oh, and used the "N" word, because he was mad at African Americans because they built muscle easier than him????? Needless to say I never went back.

I had to go to Walmart AGAIN yesterday! I actually got hit on by a creepy man. I was walking into Walmart and this creeper say "Hey good looking, how are you?" Gross. It scared me. I didn't know what to say so, I said "Thank you!" I know, I told you it scared me and I didn't know what to say!!!!

Last night was a huge accomplishment. I like to say it was indeed a Labor of LOVE. Every month our church helps out with a drug recovery program called Celebrate Recovery. We provide the recovering addicts with a meal, serve the meal to them, and then our Praise Team sings the Praise and Worship for their service. I always enjoy going. Sometimes we go 2x a month. Last night it was hard!! We weren't serving anything special. It was just sandwiches, chips, brownies, and drinks. But, let me tell you!!!! A person on a liquid diet has a hard time serving ANYTHING!!!! I was serving the chips......In front of me was huge OPEN bags of every kind of chip I would DREAM about eating right now. I am talking Cheetos, Doritos, Plain, Sweet Heat, Sour Cram and Onion. You name it and we probably had it there. I had to serve everyone who came through the line hand fulls of CHIPS!!!!! Guess what, I did it! Even though it would have been SO easy to just eat 1 chip. I didn't! It really was a LABOR of LOVE! It made me feel good! Like.."Hey I can do this!" I didn't sing last night because I was a little weak. I don't think I am getting enough protein in still. I just sat in the audience and WORSHIPED! I felt such at PEACE! I actually cried. I love having ALONE time with GOD!!!

Protein shake this morning was a little better. I added frozen strawberries instead of just plain ice. I am not 100% that is aloud, but they were blended VERY WELL ;) I only put 1/2 a scoop of protein in it also. I know that's not right but I figured I can add a little more every time. Maybe this will help me get used to it!!!!! Other than that I will have a low fat cream of broccoli soup for lunch. Low fat yogurt for breakfast snack. Sugar free jello and pudding for afternoon snack. Some kind of brothy soup for dinner. Oh, and another protein shake hopefully!!!

At Celebrate Recovery we always say the Serenity Prayer with everyone before we leave. Even though I am not a "drug" addict, I still find it very positive and it helps me. I'll leave you with it!!!

God, grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change...
Courage to change the things I can,
And Wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.

It. Is. A. Done. Deal.

Just heard from my surgeons office.

I have my official approval.

I have a date.


I don't want to post the date on my blog.

I have so many haters in blog land. I do not want any negative thoughts or words towards me.

I would LOVE to share my good news with ALL my awesome supportive followers though!

Email me so I can give you the deets!

Oh, and I took some before pictures, real before pictures ;) I am going to take some more because my husband told me my first round was a little provocative ;) Maybe I'll put on a little more clothing this time!!!!!

Now go email me!

I need all ya'lls support!!!!

I just want to eat some ham.

Good Morning Blog World!!
This is day 2 of my pre-op diet.

Have I mentioned I hate protein shakes?

Well, just for the record I do.

I dreamed about ice cream and cinnamon rolls last night.

Want to know the good news......I am down 3 1/2 lbs. this morning!!!!!!

What? Can this be POSSIBLE?????

I really would like to just eat a ham today.


I am not sure why, but ham sounds really good to me!!!!!

In all seriousness I guess I am doing good. Have not cheated, so that's great!!! I didn't get enough protein in yesterday. I am suppose to be getting in 60 protein and at least 64 oz of water. I did way more water than that yesterday, but didn't get my protein in. I will try harder today! I have already drank one protein shake so far......moving along!!!!!

I ended up going to the grocery store 2x yesterday!!! Someone on a LIQUID diet should not be aloud in a grocery store!!!!!! It was pure torture. Stuff I would never even eat all the sudden sounds great to me!!!! I made it out alive and still on my liquid diet!!!! I am going to try not to go back anytime soon!!!! I can't believe I was down 3 1/2 lbs. this morning. It just doesn't seem real!!

The Perfect Place

If ya'll haven't noticed I got a new blog layout!!! I love it! I think it is so cute!!! I am also changing the name of my blog!!!! It used to be called "Band Me....I'm Ready!" I love that name also because trust me, I AM READY TO BE BANDED!!!! But, after thinking about it, and realizing that this blog is about so much more than just my journey to be banded, I decided to come up with a more versatile name.....

"The Perfect Place"

I think that suits me perfectly!!!!! I am at the perfect place in my life right now! I am excited about this new journey I am about to embark on! I'm excited for the changes that are going to be made!

"The Perfect Place"

I want to thank each and everyone of you for commenting on my previous post about "What if's....."! I am in such a better place today than I was a week ago! I am still nervous but it is an excited nervous! A nervousness because I KNOW this is exactly the perfect place!!!
I went to my last 7 month appointment on Monday on my birthday!!!!! It feels surreal that THAT is over with! I had a long talk with my Doctor that I love so much! She has really been awesome this whole entire time! At the end of the appointment she hugged me!! :) Told me everything was going to be fine, and that THIS was the right thing to do! I just really love her.

I have a surprise for everyone!!!!!

Want to know what it is???

I have started my full liquid diet today!!!

Does anyone want to know why????

I talked to my weight loss surgeons office today, and Mary's procedure is getting very close!

So close that they told me to go on my liquid diet asap, like right now!!

Want to know another secret????

I didn't find this out till like 10 am......

Guess what I ate for breakfast????

King size Twix bar, a large pack of Lance Gold N Cheese bits, and a 12oz Dr. Pepper.

Let's just say that was a little embarrassing when I had to tell the nutritionist what I ate for breakfast this morning!!! She is a sweetheart and said it was fine, but to start my full liquid diet right then.

And THAT I did!

I went home and made me a strawberry protein shake for lunch. It isn't the GREATEST thing in the world, but I AM drinking it ;) I think I need to work on my shake making skills!!!!!

This is what I am allowed to have:

decaf, unsweetened tea or coffee
light juices
sugar free jello
sugar free popsicles
propel water
crystal light
low fat cream soups
sugar free pudding
v-8 juice
tomato soup low fat yogurt
fat free milk
carnation instant breakfast
protein supplements - 2 or 3 a day
at least 64 oz of non carbonated beverages a day / limit caffeine

So what do ya'll think????

I am excited. Much more excited than I thought I would be! I have put THIS all in God's hands and I know HE knows what HE is doing!!!!
