  1. Great Live today from International Bariatric Club - featuring the world experts in bariatric surgery (including our own Dr. Ariel Ortiz!) You can watch it again here - at in the last 10 minute so of the video - they discuss how weight loss surgery could be the only way to help those at higher risk due to metabolic disease that bariatric surgery can help resolve so that your risk of COVID-19 is reduced https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiKd5sw0qfI LIVEStream in FB: https://www.facebook.com/InternationalBariatricClub/ and stay tuned to the OCC Fac
  2. Head hunger... we all deal with it but why.... what is this beast and why is he constantly knocking at my door...errr stomach.... head - whatever - it feels the same! I battle this beast too often. Why is that? We all know this beast too well... or maybe that's the problem, maybe we don't know him. What is really causing this "hunger"... are we bored? Do we feel we "deserve" to eat more food... are we hiding from something... trying to soothe something... trying to fill a void. Are we food addicts? Give a girl a break! I have found myself battling this beast daily since Christmas - I
  3. A simple quote... but wow... super powerful. I was reading though some things today, super busy at work, but this really caught my eye. I think in my head, sometimes, I still put myself down for resorting to weight loss surgery, like i gave up. Why do i do this to myself? When i know that 95% of people that try to lose more then 50 pounds on their own will fill. They either won't reach their goal, or even worse (and I had been there many many times) they will hit that goal... and slowly but surely the weight creeps back on... usually bringing some of its friends along. Then each
  4. Sorry its been so long since my last blog entry, things have been very busy! I have always wanted to take a dance class, but before I lost weight, it wasn't something I was comfortable even really considering. I can be shy, I know that isn't the way most people would describe me, and if I have a "buddy" with me, I'm good, but entering into something new, all by myself (I tried and tried to get someone to come with me... my friends were even more intimidated then I was) was really scary to me. I kept seeing the Belly Dance for Fitness classes starting every couple of months, and I just decid
  5. I'm so sorry I haven't posted in awhile. We have been really busy at OCC and I've been really busy at home. Graduations, end of school, water polo season starting. Crazy train - woot woot! I recently read this article about weight loss surgery and pregnancy and long term health of the child, and breaking the cycle of obesity in a family. I had my weight loss surgery after I was done having kids, so I can't say I have first hand knowledge of this subject BUT... (and that's a big but) I will tell you that I have 3 kids. Two of my kids battle with their weight, the 3rd one, my last, hasn't
  6. So... my daughter got married last month. It was a beautiful, intimate, very romantic and meaningful wedding. We had it at church in our smaller sanctuary - about 75 guests, we all sat at the reception tables for the wedding. My dad said a prayer. We had dancing (I got to dance with my 85 year old daddy... a treasured moment... no that's not my dad in the pictures, that's my husband!! - OK i switched up pics - that is my husband beside me and my daddy behind me) and a dessert bar and a lovely cake baked by our friend and beautiful decorations (anybody want tips about a wedding on a budget
  7. Four... no matter what language you say it in... I just fit into a pair of size FOUR jeans... yes, me! I love thrift store, bargain hunting. Its a huge thrill to me to find something that i love for less then $10. From my amazing, full length wool coat for $8.88, to my wool peacoat for $6.88 to my Ralph Lauren cords for $3.33 or my Stuart Weitzman pumps for $4.50... I love a bargin, but I have to admit, pulling those 4's off the endless jean rack and looking at them and thinking "no way" - to them sliding in and fitting me perfectly... shocker! Do I think every pair of size 4 pants will f
  8. Week 19 has been very positive. But it started out pretty scary. And because of that I had to get disciplined. After Thanksgiving for weigh in I was down 1 lb last week and happy about that. But I had pumpkin pie and cool whip for Thanksgiving on Thursday, 1 slice, then again Friday, 1 slice and Saturday, 1 slice. After having pumpkin pie and cool whip 3 days in a row I began to notice something startling! I started getting mental cravings and Sugar cravings!! I found myself thinking of having pie after I'd eaten it on Friday and counting down the minutes until I could have it on Saturday and
  9. As my norweigan grandmother would have said "Uff da!". I wasn't paying attention and drank my sugar free strawberry lemonade a little too fast. OUCH! Sometimes I forget how small my little "shrimp" stomach is. It didn't feel like I was drinking that fast, but wow... that hurt! Its been a little over 4 months since I had my band removed and converted to a sleeve surgery, but I am still getting used to a much smaller stomach. When I had my band, I could drink more, a bit more quickly because it went right through my band, but now that me entire stomach is just smaller... I still forget, es
  10. I've been thinking more and more about Dr. Ortiz and the way he calls the revision surgery a "rescue surgery". At first I didn't really get it. The more I think about it, and hear from people in need of a revision surgery, or those that have already had it, the term is perfect! I wasn't thinking of myself as a 'rescue' - but honestly, given more time, I surely would have been. My weight was creeping back on, if I had waited, I would have been feeling desperate, and probably a bit like a failure, and the rescue would have been much more serious! I would have been even farther from my goal
  11. And so it begins.... the liquid only phase of the pre-op diet that all sleeve revision patients that still have their band must endure. Its not too bad, of course, it is my first day. I don't have to be on it quite as long as others because nothing gets stuck at my band right now, and In the almost 6 years that I've had my band, I haven't PB'd - so the liklihood of inflammation is reduced. My husband is blending up some fabulous high protein shakes. I'm using the whey protein powder and mixing it with Soy Light Chocolate Milk - that reallly helps with the flavor, as do the Torani Syups!
  12. When we start thinking about the decision to have a bariatric surgery we are all about the research, wanting to glean every piece of info on how others have done, reading, holding on to the stories, trying to place ourselves there often unable to visualize ourselves with the same degree of success. Shortly after surgery many of us post either to share or ask the occasional question but then by in large we drop off. Why? Well I believe that we are all out there just living our lives. The drastic difference from our weight challenged bodies to our post surgical new stature allows us to begin
