Welp, looks like smaller cooks for me..

Postby dinty » Wed Sep 24, 2008 12:45 pm

Just got word today that I have been approved by my insurance company to have the Gastric Bypass procedure done. Now, Im not blaming my "manly" figure on BBQ alone....it's the accessories included (ie, beer and ABT's) lol. Anyway, the wife is happy as it will get me back down to where I was when we first met, but then she knows I will be happier as well. So, looks like lots of chicken cooks for a while, maybe a rack of baby backs for a week worth of lunches for work..lol.

Will keep you in prayers for a safe surgery and recovery! Remember, veggies and chicken, fish, etc. all taste great on the grill!

Asking the Lord to guide the hand of the surgeon on this deal. Best of fortunes to you. Sure wished you give the raw vegan life style a whirl first..but doubt there be any way to talk you into that huh?

Good luck with the procedure. It's hard to make lifestyle changes, but it can be done. Keep us updated. And besides, I like chicken and seafood off the grill and smoker!

I hope everything goes well with the surgery! It definitely takes a lifestyle change afterwards to maintain. I have had two friends who had it done. One was able to keep the weight off by watching his diet and had to eat several very small meals a day to keep from getting sick. The other didn't follow a diet plan at all and ended up gaining back all the weight. I hope you're like the former!

thanks everybody for you words of encouragement...I think everything will go well. I've researched this procedure for a while now. Also, I have talked to several of my doctors patients and they all have good words about the doctor and their staff concerning aftercare...


I think I'll miss the beer, but I wont miss the gut..lol

now Im off to see about smoking some salmon..

good luck dinty.....for about 10 years now I have worked with post op bariatric patients (lap band, roux-en-Y gastric bypass and now sleeve gastrectomy) through a hospital here that received the first Center Of Excellence for their bariatric procedures. If you have any questions regarding post op nutrition don't hesitate to PM me.
