My new birthday. Nov. 30, 2010

by Pat

As you can see by the name of my blog, I just had my weight loss surgery. This has been a year in coming. Excited, scared, to say the least. But very determined to be successful. To that end I am sure I will need all the help and support I can get. I know this is not entirely a journey of one.

I guess right now my hardest hurdle has been the meal replacement shakes I am eating. The product my surgeon has me on is so sickening sweet it makes me sick to my stomach. I am having a very hard time getting it all down, so I am having trouble getting all my protein.

I guess I should tell you I live in Missouri, but had my surgery in Oklahoma. I have a very good doctor. I was very surprised that just a few hours after my surgery I was eating, of course just 30cc every 30 min. I did very good the first day. The second day was pretty good, and I was pleased that I had hardly any pain at all. I also got to get out of the hospital that afternoon.

Since I live 4 hours from the hospital, I went to a motel for the night. The next day was travel day. I was very tired, and not feeling real good, but made it home. Yeah!! Since being home every day I feel better and better, but just dread my shakes!

I look forward to hopefully having communication with many other lap-band patients. I know I can learn a lot from those of you who have been at this for awhile.

Till next time.

Unarmed Security Guard Companies

Unarmed Security Guard
- More often than not, your business, organization or
event will need a security company to prevent criminal activity and
keep order, but won’t need an armed company to do that. Just because
the company you’re hiring will not have armed officers does not mean
that the training levels or other qualifications of the company are
any less important.

Extracts make the shakes better
by: Anonymous

Get extracts from the spice isle like add orange extract to vanilla protein shakes or almond to chocolate, yum

by: Lynnette

I too was having problems with the protein shakes, I either hated the taste or I had nausea/vomiting. I tried several different brands in the weeks prior to my surgery (3/31/11) and finally went online to see if anyone else was having this problem and what they did. I was afraid I couldn't have the surgery if I couldn't tolerate the protein shakes! Then I discovered Unjury which you can only get online. I actually like the shakes (chocolate). Now that I am on pureed foods I add banana or berries and mix it in the blender. Just a suggestion but the Unjury works for me. Good luck to you on your weight loss journey. I have lost 15 pounds since my surgery.

How's it going?
by: Stacy

Hi! I'm wondering how you're doing? I had my surgery one week after you so we're probably at about the same point.
I did really great the first 6 wks and then not so great until my 3rd fill 1.5 weeks ago. I'm finally limited in what I can eat. I finally feel the restriction!
I lost 6 lbs over the last 2 months, which was very disappointing. Since my last fill, I've lost about 7 lbs! I feel great but I'm still learning what I can and can't eat.
I found your blog because I was searching for ideas from others who are at the same point as to what they are eating.
I hope you're doing well.
