One Week Banded

Leave a comment

It has been one full week since I was banded. It’s pretty simple folks, I am extremely glad I had it done and I have zero regrets. My fasting sugars have dropped from 596 to a nice and safe 106. Now that’s incredible!!! And it’s only been a week’s time but I haven’t felt any left knee joint pain or any left foot/leg pain either. I have stepped up my walking and am finding enjoyment in doing so too. Also, I thought I’d never be able to just eat ONE CUP of anything but I have accomplished just that and a week later of doing it three times a day … I’m actually FULL when I’m done too.

I have one more week — till July 11th on the full liquid diet, then I move to soft foods like scrambled eggs, hard cheeses/string cheese, cottage cheese, avocados, cut up chicken, chicken salad, tuna salad, small noodles (frog-eyed size) … to name a few. This Stage III diet will last for three weeks. I’m excited to start getting protein through chicken and eggs. But again, I am just going day by day.

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
