Hey Grandpa! What's for Supper?
This morning I had scrambled eggs, white gravy, and ham. The scrambled eggs got stuck right off. I know I chewed, I know I hadn't over eaten. I don't want it to be, but my band is too tight. I have all the "signs." I'm going to call the doctor's office tomorrow.
For lunch I had green beans, squash, new potatoes, garlic bread, and a slice of ham. Lunch was uneventful! So far, supper has been uneventful! Maybe I'm on a roll.
This morning I got on my crazy scales and they said 289! Now we all know that will change, but it was still so nice to see the 280's! By having this surgery, I expected to lose weight. It's just nice for it to actually be happening. I haven't been the poster child for following directions. But when I don't, I pay the price. I'm learning to do what I'm told. I wish I'd done that 30 years ago! My dad probably wishes I'd done it 30 years ago!
I can't say that this surgery is for everybody. I wish I'd been a stronger person and able to do it on my own. But it also takes a strong person to admit they need help. If you know somebody who is contemplating this surgery or has already had it, be a cheerleader for them. Be a cheerleader for all your friends, no matter what their struggle.
I know I've said it before but, NOBODY WANTS TO BE OBESE! If they say otherwise, I say phooey! They may be comfortable in their own skin, but given the opportunity, they'd be a 'normal' size in a heartbeat. I know I would!
Sorry about my rant, sometimes I just get going.
