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...

Postoperative Parameters (TBBS #whatever...I HAD SURGERY!!!!

 ....seems I typed this, then didn't post it... that was at 6 wks post op.

My surgery date was September 28, 2016.

5'6" 43 yrs old
HW: 331
SW: 305
CW: 266
GW: 160-ish

I've lost a bit less than 40 lbs since surgery... I will never find them again. I am not sad. I say farewell with glee and joy.

OK, maybe a little sad... but that's because of hormones. And nausea, and dehydration, and lack of protein. I actually hate food right now, so... that sucks. I have had to get one IV hydration, and probably need another... but I really don't want to go into the ER to get it.

My clothes are lose. My shoes are lose. and my face is thinner. I can see the pounds melting off.

I just wish I could get away from the nausea. It's my only regret. I make food, and it looks YUMMY. When I smell it, or taste it... nope. I'm done. Can't eat another bite. And NOTHING sweet. Ughhh...

I hate protein shakes. I hate adding unflavored protein.. but I'm going to have to start doing it. I don't have a choice.
