Eating with my eyes..

I have managed to look at food, then pass it by, but as I approach mushies on Monday, I find that I am starving for stuff... tuna (go figure!), spaghetti sauce! (I don't know why that one.) chicken salad... yep, I make mine just about like Lori does.. I am ready to go buy cottage cheese and regular yogurt and other mushified foods.... Now I am really starving!! Old song I knew... Hungry, hungry, I am hungry Table, table, here I come I could eat a goosemoose burger, fifteen pickles and a pu

Tired

I am tired all the time, but I don't think it has anything to do with my sleeve. My mom has early onset alzh., and has been living with me for 18 months. It has gotten so unpleasant around her that I cannot wait to take her to my brother's house on Friday. I feel very guilty for being so glad she is leaving for a month or two, and even guiltier that I am hoping she decides to stay there. Until this is all settled, I don't really have a perspective on how my energy level is. I am doing the b

Curiouser and curiouser

Lori has me all curious about some of the cosmedic procedures. I don´t know if it is fair to my spouse or our retirement fund to spend anymore money. I am just thinking about my 40th class reunion in October,(which I wasn´t even going to attend at my presurgery weight.) As far as surgery, I am feeling fine... much better than I thought I would at this point. I am anxious to get the port out and get home to my hubby, because I really miss him so much. More later.. need to check out some of

Two days out

Surgery was Monday, and I am feeling so much better than I thought I would at this point. I get to start liquid yogurt tomorrow, but I am not even sure where to get any around the Marriott. I am still very tired, and I know that is normal. I think I am going to be kind to myself and get a first class ticket for the flight home. I am still in a LOT of pain in my left hip and knee, and I don´t think I can tolerate being squished up in the postage stamp size seat for another 7 hours. Think I w

Packed and ready

I am all packed up and ready to fly out at 6:30 am tomorrow! I have crushed everything I can into my carry on bag.... it is under the weight limit, but I just can't squish in my heating pad or my favorite pink "NAP" brand "blankie." I have paid the bills, written down instructions to help my husband care for my mom while I am gone. My fear is them not doing the whole thing at once....just have to think positively.. I need a week away from my mom. Having to care for an early onset Alz mom at

The Race

(from "300 Pounds Down" Thank you, Lindsay for writing my life, too.) When I was in the 3rd grade, we started having the Presidential Physical Fitness Test every year. My most dreaded part of all was the "600 yard dash." The first year I did this, I went out sprinting from the start. It didn't take me long to lose my breath. I can still remember sucking in cold air and trying to breathe. Before I even made it through the 2nd loop, I threw up and was pulled from the race. Looking back on

Too much information

I have got to stop reading so much information about this procedure, because I am scaring myself. One source says protein is my new best friend; protein and produce. Then, today's Cooking Light magazine said that the Adkins diet had been proven to be unhealthy and we should be eating complex carbs and veggies. What is what? I am worried that when we get old and on SS that we might not be able to afford the vitamins and protein that we need. I would say that is silly, but it really is a real

Chewing my knuckles

My mom has early onset Alzh and lives with us. Some days she can be totally contrary, and yesterday was one of those days. I took her to the dentist to get her new lower dentures, (which we are paying for, btw, as she is financially not able to support herself,) and we got into it right away... over what is irrelevant... it could be anything... things that I have told her over and over and over, and I don't expect to her to remember, but she is bound and determined that I never told her. It r

Family causing anxiety

Today is the first day that I have felt stress from my family, and it is arising because family members, (other than my husband,) are worried about me going alone for the procedure. My crippled brother called and wanted to DRIVE TO JACKSONVILLE (10 hours) so he could go on the plane with me and make sure I was okay. My husband has been with me to OCC two of the three times I have gone, and he knows that I will be well cared for, and the surgical procedure is with one of the best bariatric su
