I went threw the dietitian class Wednesday

Hello out there blog world, just thought I would touch base, and mention that I went threw the diet class for after surgery this past Wednesday. WOW, its amazing at the can nots.  Can not have any meds containing NSAIDS, can not have a pill bigger than a pencil eraser, ever.  Can not chew gum ever, no alcohol, which that ones OK, I do not drink, no caffeine, no soda, can not use a straw.. The list is lengthy of the things you have to do after the surgery, but to be healthy, its all totally worth it.  The first two weeks after surgery I will be strictly liquid.  After that, the dietitian upgrades you, according to your progress, first puree baby food consistence, then to  small chopped, and so forth.  My date is inching near, only 2 weeks and 5 days away... yay so excited, to begin my new life, to get my health back, to take charge.  Keep me in your prayers that all goes well.  I go this coming wed, the 8th of September, for my final visit and then to the hospital to preregister.  Will blog about all that once it has taken place.


  1. Wow, look at you -- exercise, meeting with a dietitian, dieting, losing weight -- you are doing great, all without surgery.

    If you can do all that on your own, why do you need surgery?

  2. Hi Rene, I would like to say I published your comment, just to answer this question for you. I needed the surgery because my health was in jeopardy, I have a very much so injured back/knee, and can only exercise slightly, and my doctors decided this was my only option to fix my problem, therefore, with my own decision, that of my family, friends and doctor, we all decided that this was the best option for me. This is a blog to help those going threw bariatric surgery, not for those that want to discourage us to comment, furthor comments discouraging this great thing that I just did will be ignored, thank you.
