Rocky Roads.........not so smooth sailing

Anyone who thinks that surgery is an easy way out should come and visit me when I have eaten why my body has decided is the wrong thing (even if it accepted last week.

I knew that the first 3 months or so could be hard post op, but I am really really getting tired of trying new things as we are meant to, that are okay foods on their nutritional panels only ot find they make me feel really lousy, full of gas, and then a hour or so later I throw up.

That has actually only happened twice, just that it was 2 nights in a row, and i guess because my surgeon is away on christmas holidays i am a tad scared that if something goes wrong, i am pretty much "on my own"

I am meant to be progresing with introducing new foods, although I ams till no where near ready to try bread, pasta or rice. Can't wait till i can though. Actually i did try a peice of toast, and it was all right going down, but man within 30 minutes i was the burping queen...Now i have never really been a burper, but I am sure learning fast.

Oh, and if you haven't checked out the side bar, since last time I published my weight, i have lost another 4.3 kgs, so that makes a total of 27.1 kgs since my highest weight of 177kgs. It also means that I am now officially under 150 kgs, just scraped in with a weigh in this morning of 149.9 kgs.

You may have noticed I am not publishing my weight at regular intervals. That is pretty much because I am not necessarily weighing on a specific day. Usually i leave it till I need a pick me up. That and when people ask how much I have lost (people from work)I can say "I don't know, I haven't weighed"

Well we are off tomorrow for a couple of days for christmas. Going to go up to Dad's in Feilding on Sunday and then we are going to Taihape to meet Simon's parents for a picnic lunch on Monday, back to Feilding that night and then back home on Christmas nite after spending the day with Dad & Val, my brother and sis in law and their kids (3 boys).

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas,




  1. Happy Christmas past on u both
    (btw Doug past on your message)

  2. Will buzz you soon and have a catch up and also I have started blogging again and gone public

    Take care Jaxx

  3. Sorry to hear that you have had some down days. I hope things picked up a little for Chistmas. Although I suppose it was hard watching everyone eat. I have an understanding of that now as it is really hard for a non-gluten free person to cater to a gluten free person.

    Give me a text next time you are in Palmy. I bet I won't recognise you!
