The Big "BS'' is Coming Soon

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Hi Friends. Just returned from 2 weeks in Kansas where grandchildren were graduating all over the place! 3 high school, and 1 college. With all that celebrating, I was sure to gain 5 or 10 pounds. Yet the naked truth is, I only gained 1 pound. So not too bad.

Well, incase your wondering what the big BS is = Bariatric Surgery. I used to think it was the easy way out of this "fat suit" I am lugging around on my body. However, now that have started all the testing and classes, I realize that this is NOT EASY. It's actually overwhelming. I am definitely committed, and my insurance and medicare are on board with it. Should happen in June. I will keep everyone posted.

    I talked to a lady on Sunday who had bypass a year ago. She is very conscious of what she eats and works at her healthful eating all the time. I agree with Jill.... be sure to stay here or with another group to get the support you need. Nothing is magic....

    Seriously, according to your weight ticker you weigh 212.... I have to say, I hope you change your mind.... you are almost "there" without the surgery. I'm not far from that weight.... and short too.... but don't look to bad..... emoticon

    Gaining only a pound while attending Graduation celebrations, parties is great in my book. . .I do know weight loss surgery is a serious step and I'm glad you've thought it over well and are attending classes now and I hope you gi ti a support group after the surgery as that would be great for you.. I know people that have been very successful taking the weight off after it but I also know people that about a year later were right back to where they started before the surgery. As you know it's not "magic" and it still takes eating very small meals and healthy food and exercising. emoticon Wishing you good luck and success.

    Thank you for the advice it sounds good to me. Re the holiday it looks like we will not be going because of my husbands depression, I will help as much as can but he won't even try.
    I have subscribed to you blog.
    All the best Elaine

    Congratulations! Only 1 pound is a real success. I went to a family reunion over the Memorial Day weekend and regained 3 pounds. I've got to get serious about this program if I'm ever going to succeed. I haven't looked into bariatric surgery, but my cardiologist keeps telling me that I need to do it. Maybe some day, but right now I'm still trying to do it on my own. I wish you much good luck with your surgery and I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through it. Please do keep us posted on your outcome. Hugs, Sharon
