What a way to go...

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Well, thanks to my gall bladder attack the weekend of Thanksgiving, I've had to alter completely the way I eat. The "NO" list is so long, there's not a whole lot left on it I CAN eat. Makes it real challenging and boring eating the same old stuff. The good thing is it's all healthy foods. I am eating half the calories I was taking in before (mind you I was eating 2000-3000 per day) simply because I'm terrified to eat something that will cause me another atttack, and my surgery isn't until Dec. 27th, 2010. Also, many (most) things I eat go right through me anyway, so really that keeps me from eating certain things too and embarrassing myself at work. I lost almost 6 pounds last week. That's good in one way, bad in another. This is NOT the way I wanted to do it. I was up to 200 lbs, so really, what is 6 pounds, right? But this is a TOUGH way for it to go down. Well, I guess we'll see how this all pans out. I still have to get a camera run down my throat (Scope) to make sure nothing's blocking my stomach or that I don't have a hernia or ulcer or worse (the "c" word) causing me all of the reflux I've had and ignored all year. I have a few kidney stones too. Who knows when they'll decide to move around! I also have what appears to be a fatty tumor in my midline pelvis on the catscan. Guess that one has to go to my OBGYN. I really want to get on the right track this new year. My health has suffered due to beligerence and stress. This year I need to make serious changes, but I guess my gall bladder won't be joining me. LOL! emoticon

    Quite a year for both of us, eh? But the positive side of knowing about these things is that we can arm ourselves for the battle and come out the other side victorious.

    You're still (always) in my prayers, Trace. emoticon

    The forced healthy eating and accompanying weight loss is a great silver lining to your health problems! I'll still be eating deep fried pork at the mall food court until I'm forced to stop! (Why is it sooo good! And they gave me enough for a family of four!)
    Hope your test results are negative in a positive way. I'm sure you'll feel better after your surgery. I have a pair of pants that I never did fit into... I was losing weight consistently and then I moved in with G and the weight started moving in the other direction. I'm hanging onto them - I figure if I ever get really sick, I'll finally be able to wear them. Kind of a weird way to think, but I'm too cheap to give them away (they were kind of expensive)!
    I sure hope 2011 brings you lots of happiness. :-)

    I pray that you feel better, and that it does not act up again. I know how bad it was on me till I had mine removed. You are having surgey on my Birthday, so I will remember and pray for you. Have a great day and feel better. God Bless You
