Weight Update

Morning Folks!

I have not been updating my
weight loss / surgery cause I
have been waiting till I went
back to the doc for my weigh
in. That is not till April 6th and
I am busting the gut, so to speak,
to report on things!

According to my scales, which
I tried out when I returned from the
doc the first time and we were right
on the money with the same number,
I am down 33 lbs!
Keep in mind, with my digital scales
depending where you have them
sitting they can range from
2 to 3 lbs off either way. I try
to line my scales up with the same
square on the tiles of my floor in
hopes they read the same all the
time. So the true weigh in will be
April 6th.

There are a few things that I have to
continue to do.

First off I have to take certain vits. and
stuff everyday. I can't take large pills,
they all have to be crushed. If I have
any meds (that I take on reg. basis)
that are capsules I have to open them
and take the inside.

This is due to the fact that I had
a hiatal hernia for years. While
the doc was in there he fixed that.
To fix it the hole at the top
of the stomach had to be tightened
up and made smaller.

This is the container that my
calcium comes in. It is for
3 months. I take these 3 times
a day.

All these things I show you I will
have to be sure I take everyday
for the rest of my life.


Big container!



These don't have to be crushed,
I chew these.
Thank goodness cause they are pretty big
also.



B12- I take it once a week.
I picked my day for remembering
to take it on Sat.



Also, another thing I have to stay on is
Multi Vit. I also take three of these
a day.



These are pretty big also. I tried to open
them and take the insides like I was told
but, the insides are really power like and
you can't just throw in your mouth and take.
Talking to the docs office I was told
that this will dissolve and I am shallow it.
I worry about it getting stuck but so
far so good.



I take this once a day.



This is a pill crusher. Until going through
this I had no clue they made these! lol.
That is what a sandwich bag and the end
of a wooden handle is for....crushing!


I have to be careful to not shallow my food
in too big of pieces. I chew 20 times or more.

I drink 64 ounces of liquid a day. 

I eat 60 to 90 grams of protein a day.
500 calories a day. 
I can add a few certain veggies with this
but normally after eating my protein at 
a meal, I am full. 

In three months I can add a few other
certain veggies. I can't have potatoes, 
pasta or beef until I have eaten 75% of
my weigh loss. 

I am living on tuna, chicken, fish,
and yogurt. 
Water and tea!
And the tea I can have has
to be decaf/unsweet. I can use lemon 
in both my tea and water.

It has been an interesting journey 
and I have only been at it for a month. 

Can't wait for the doc weigh in.
I think they will take blood then
to see where my levels on calcium
and Vits are. 

Thank you for stopping in,
Pam

Congrats to you. That is a lot to keep up with the medicine. I know you will be happy to be able to eventually add more foods. Keep us posted about the weigh in!

So glad things are going so well for you! 33# in a month, goodness, your clothes must simply hang. It's nice that they have handy supplements for your nutrition.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting, much appreciated.
Wow it sounds like you are really doing well, congratulations. We have just had a holiday in South Africa and I am struggling to lose the 5kg I put on while there. So easy to put on, but never so easy to say goodbye to it again!! Keep up the good work, have good Sunday, Diane

I enjoyed reading about your journey and wish you much luck. I did not know about powdered or about the crusher. wish I had that crusher for my mom, she could swallow nothing.. congrats on the 33 pounds

My prayers are with you! I wonder if you could get your pills compounded into a liquid. I did that for one of my cats years ago.

That's quite a regimen! Kudos to you for keeping up with it. And it must be time for a new wardrobe!
