Day 2 - Crazy Day

Today started out good and quickly went down the tubes. Had a good breakfast then got a call from work saying not to come in until a little later. That was fine but once I got to work one of my patients was not doing well and kept me busy for quite some time. We are also short staffed at night and I was asked to stay until 11pm. Well, not a problem but of course I didn't bring my supper and the cafeteria food is crap. I had some corn chowder and a fish sandwich with a banana. I guess I didn't really eat too bad but I could have done better. Tomorrow is a new day and I will learn new habits and now I'm going to bring extra food in just in case things change again. My schedule was also changed for Saturday so at least I know beforehand and can plan accordingly. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!!

First day of gettin healthy!

It's been a long 6 months. That's how long it took to get an appt. and start my bariatric program to assist in my "getting healthy journey". Now my surgeon has resigned and it looks like I need to start over with another program. Vermont only has 1 surgeon who does "open" procedures. Right now just waiting for the office to call me back to tell me the decision of what to do with me and the rest of her patients. I have decided to call them back if I haven't heard anything by July 1st, so that way I can continue with my journey.

Since I heard the news about my surgeon I've been on a backslide. I'm not following preop diet, and due to an ankle injury I'm unable to exercise. Today is a new day and a new start to a healthier life. I'm 400+ lbs and will drop dead if I don't start getting in gear.
