    Default A-1-C ....5.8


    Gastric Sleeve performed on 8/8

    As of right now....(2 mos later)

    A-1 C is now 5.8

    Lost 30 lbs (on my Drs scale) so far.

    My shoes are getting loose, rings are getting loose.

    Leg swelling gone.

    Doc is reducing my blood pressure meds.

    No more insulin, just one Januvia every day.

    Energy is good, and I eat all real food, small quantities.

    If I go to a restaurant, I order an appetizer and can't even finish
    it. :-) :-) :-)

    Wheeeeee hooooo!

    Good advice, Wendy....
    My sister had gastric bypass surgery a year and a half ago, so she
    saved all her clothes for me. I won't need to buy much on my way
    down the scale! She is sending me a huge box this week.

    The most I have ever lost is 30 pounds. But that put me at a good weight.
    I did look thin at that weight although technically I could have lost a few
    more. I did put off buying until my clothes would not stay on. For
    instance, I fell out of my bra. Not good!

    One thing I did learn that has to fit right is a nightgown. When I was
    pregnant with Angela I bought some regular gowns in larger sizes. I
    actually never got that big. What happened with the too big gowns was that
    when I turned over in bed, the back part of the gown stayed there in the
    bed. It didn't move with me. And then it ripped. My SIL said she had the
    same problem.

    oh Evelyn, this is so good to hear!

    I'm completely thrilled for you and i hope this continues for you!!!!

    I have to admit that i'm now at the 'seniors portion sizes' or
    'children's portion sizes' only at restaurants

    Want to laugh? I asked if i could order from the Seniors menu as i
    could NOT eat the food offered on the 'regular' menu. I would save
    about 30% by getting the Sr's portion which is 1/2 the regular portion.

    I was informed that to order from the Sr's or children's menus i would
    need ID to prove my age.

    I smiled, and said 'obviously I don't qualify. thank you for your honesty'

    The next restaurant had NO trouble making more money off of me (do the
    maths above) and letting me buy the smaller portion!

    So far my nighties still fit, but they are getting just a tad loose.
    My sister, who went through all this a while ago has saved all her
    various clothes on the way down. She has lost almost 100 lbs. and
    she had the Rouen-Y bypass. I had the gastric sleeve, in which only
    just the stomach itself is made smaller. One of the women in my
    support group has lost 145 lbs with the gastric sleeve surgery. She
    works out at a gym constantly though. My sister is sending me a
    huge box with all the (now) too large clothing for her, but will be
    just right for me now.

    I order an appetizer of something I really like. Then I take the
    portion I can't eat home.

    I have occasionally ordered a regular portion, but I can't eat it all
    at one sitting. It could take me three meals to finish one regular
    restaurant portion of an entree, and even then the dog gets a bit of
    the leftovers.

    One restaurant we go to serves complete meals, salad, soup, entree and
    dessert as a part of the deal. I don't order anything. Hubby eats
    his salad, I eat his soup, and then he lets me have a bite or two of
    his entree and a single bite of his dessert. I can seldom eat even
    that.

    giggle Evelyn

    and remember all those 'poor old folks who can't afford their own meal
    each' stories that we heard while growing up

    NOW i get it! It's not that they can't AFFORD it $$ wise, they simply
    can't EAT that much! LOL

    love your approach and attitude, you are doing amazing!
