My GrandpaT always said at nearly every meal to at least one of us grandkids "Why don't you eat and leave the food alone?" Which, to a 5 yr old, is pretty confusing. I think I have it figured out, but don't tell my family. We all believe what we want about Grandpa's words of wisdom on just about everything in the world.
For me, I will simply say - it makes me wonder what in the world I really have eaten myself into...

The Surgeon Experimentation - BS #5

It's been 2 months since my last post. A lot has happened, and not much at all either.

I'm on track to have my surgery soon. It's been 6 months since I started this journey... and it's been long... and flown at the same time. Typical Time Space Continuum thing.

Last month, my Bariatric Surgery team informed me my surgeon is no longer doing Bariatric Surgery. That meant I had to find a new Surgical program. I made some calls, found one in the medical group I used to work with when I lived in Gettysburg. I met with one of the doc's in York, PA. I won't go into details, but it was not a good fit. I then called Penn State Hershey Surgical Weight Loss. This is actually who I would have chosen first, and had researched them several years ago. Hubs wanted me to find someone closer though. I luckily found my old program, and actually really liked them all! I kinda hate to say goodbye top them!

I am in the process now of being accepted into PennState's program, and will be able to have my surgery soon.. hopefully.

Through all of this, I found myself a bit derailed. It was disappointing to know I had to switch doc's. I kinda went a bit crazy. Drinking Soda, not eating right. I got back on track pretty quickly, but still. It's a good reminder of how easily this journey can go bad, fast.

I have lost 11 lbs since I started (give or take a couple depending on whose scale I'm on). We have moved into a new house (right in the middle of finding out I needed to switch teams!! Hello Stressor!), which we LOVE.

Also, Here are some "Before" pics for you... Just think, in a few months, I'll be showing you my progress into a smaller sleeker, healthier body!!
