New Beginnings: 3 month surgiversary

It's been 3 months since I had what was probably life-saving surgery. When the Dr. opened me up I was diseased all over- he almost didn't do the surgery because of it. But he did- and gave me a chance at a life I would have never had a chance to... Read more
New Beginnings: October update

It's hard to believe October is almost over. I don't feel like I've even had an October. Nothing exciting to report really. I am continuing to have issues eating food which my surgeon tells me is my damaged and diseased liver- not my stomac... Read more

I'm almost 2 months post-surgery. I'm struggling a little with where I fit into this new life- and it shows. This morning I decided it's kind of like feeling like Alice felt- that I've fallen into a place I don't really recognize because no... Read more

I don't feel I have much to post but it's been awhile since an update so here goes. My roux-en-y was on August 4th. I lost the first two weeks after then stalled for a couple weeks, which I was not happy about. I finally got over myself and... Read more

Despite my best efforts to try and control the world- I have not been successful. I had researched weight loss surgery when I knew I needed mine. I knew what to expect from it. I knew some people lost quickly and some not so much. I knew ev... Read more
New beginnings- re-learning myself
Thursday, August 27, 2015      9 comments

I'm three weeks out from surgery and I'm certainly learning a lot about myself. Post-surgery I am never hungry. Most of the time I'd as soon skip eating as it just doesn't interest me at all. But I know my body needs the nutrients, so I eat... Read more

Day 12 of my recovery and things are....better. I am not feeling as sore except for a couple little spots. I am still not sleeping well and my new tummy has not been happy trying new things, but I have had some great positives I needed to share... Read more

I am not promising I'll win fans with this- but from the beginning I've cleared my thoughts by blogging so I am going to do that with no expectations this will make sense to anyone but me. Feel free to skip this one- it ain't pretty. 8/4/20... Read more

I'm learning a lot of this is about what's in my head. I know it ends up being about what's in my mouth- but it starts in my head. I think I mi... Read more

I had a little test for myself today. I had a particularly upsetting day at work- not work related but with 'family' members that are less than sensitive and really hurt my feelings. It goes back to feelings of not belonging that are deep r... Read more

I tend to like to wear black a lot. The last few years I've made myself wear brighter tops- even prints! Why is this hard? I remember being right out of college, walking around downtown Seattle, and with the crowds it helped me feel 'invisi... Read more

I never wanted to have wls. It was never even on my radar. It seemed like an admission of defeat- like cheating maybe? I just know I wasn't there. Of course now that I have no real options (I do have one- death- but I choose to not go there... Read more

I didn't mean to delete the last blog I'd made. I suppose it's hard for me to be real honest here. When I wrote about my back injury and how I'd not likely walk any more- how my life had changed so much since I fell down our stairs Decembe... Read more
