A new year, a new me...

Saturday, January 01, 2011

I don't know how this happened. I lost almost 12 pounds two weeks before my surgery due to restricted diets, and now after surgery I've gained back four pounds. Well, I guess I haven't exactly been "good". I ate brownies and stuff. I want to be serious about my health this year. Years of stress have caused me a stomach infection and a load of esophagus ulcers. That's what the endoscopy found. To top that, a week later, I had my gall bladder removed. It's a wake up call, I know it, and I want to SIT UP and pay attention. My surgery was Monday, Dec. 27th, 2010. I'd read lots of horror stories about gall bladder removal, but honestly I feel SO much better. I'm still pretty sore, but I haven't experienced any of the "bile dumping" horror stories other people have talked about. I do go to the bathroom pretty regularly after eating, but that's the way my body SHOULD have been working all along and wasn't. I consider the fact that my surgery went perfect, and I am so mobile so fast a blessing. I have to get "my house" in order this year. My number one rule is no more putting up with things I've been putting up with for years in my personal life. This year is going to be about ME getting better, body and soul! I will not stand for those things anymore. This year I have to stand by that. I cannot possibly be the best person I can be until I am willing to step up to the plate and MAKE a good life for myself, and that's what I'm going to do so help me God.
I wish you all a very safe, healthy, prosperous new year surround by those who love you and wonderful memories to be made all year long.
Much love!

    Is it possible that you're still inflamed from the surgery? Maybe that's where the weight gain came from. Don't give up!

    Glad the surgery helped. I also found that to be true and had no "horror stories" to tell because they just didn't happen. It sounds like you have your priorities right and with you first all the rest will fall into place. Good Luck and have a wonderful 2011!!
