Dr appointment today
« on: April 05, 2019, 05:55:35 PM »
I had a new Dr today.
I'm on some new meds for my weight.
I made the decision to have gastric bypass surgery .
They are putting me up the list.
I'm not going to lie,Im scared 
The one I need they remove 2/3 of my stomach and all of my small intestine. 
One good thing is I can get a seat for my new mill 8)
They say I will be much smaller and won't flip the mill over riding on it. :D
My a1c went down from 10.6 to 7.3  :)
I have been fighting this all my life .
I don't want to die yet.
I want to be like Peter, YH,MM,WHD and have a great sawmill business. 
I was told in 1984 I would never make contracting long and I made it till last June.

Good luck! Our surveyor got the surgery, and he's been doing great; really turned his life around. There's been food related disappointments, but he's doing well for quality of life.

Here's to the rest of your life...

I am rooting for you Jim, whatever you do. 

Surely that are some LT40 seats among our members that are not being used.  ??  They are heavy and cumbersome so shipping might be an issue.

It's hard for me
I could stop drinking cold turkey. 
Work hard for something I want.
But I can't kick the weight thing.
I'm embarrassed I cant do it on my own.

It would be embarrassing to continue on as you were, when there are solutions available, instead of seeking the professional help when it is was available. When I researched having the surgery they told me I have to loose a certain amount of weight by diet and would need to change my lifestyle. I decided if I had to do all that I would see if I could go all the way on my own without the surgery. I managed to loose almost all  i had wanted to. The real battle for me now is to keep it off. Your doctor may want you to loose some weight first too. You might find once you get started you can continue on your own without the surgery. If not, so be it. Do what it takes to improve your quality of life. Nothing embarrassing in any of that.

Everyone needs a little help sometimes, no shame in that.

(Not referring to you in particular Bruno with the following statement just my thoughts on the food situation in North America)

I think it's a tough world out there when it comes to food and the odds are against us, it seems like you can't turn on the tv or radio without being bombarded with food shows or ads (very little of it looks healthy).

Can't drive to any town without having to run the gauntlet of restaurants and coffee shops or go to any grocery store or gas bar without being tempted thousands of times with unhealthy "food" choices.

These companies have years of experience and experts in marketing to get your money because that is why they are there.

Their "food" is made to tempt you and keep you wanting more, the stuff that was a once in a while treat in the past has turned into everyday affair.

The best advise I have ever heard was really simple "Eat food, not too much, mostly vegetables"

To expand a bit, food is things that you can recognize as food (un-processed) usually found in the outside row of the grocery store very little real food is found in all the other isles its almost all corporate greed in there.

Wishing you best and admiring your resolve not to give up.

Bruno,

You are a fighter, I applaud you, if you were not scared you would not be honest with yourself with all of this.  You will pull through and be better for it.  I may not have been exactly in your shoes, but I have been to a place where I could not even pull up my own shorts or walk without two people helping me - it's humbling to say the least.  Yes, I joke around a lot and inject dry humor into most things - it's just who I am, and my way of dealing with life, those who know me get it. 

We all have our unfair advantages and face our challenges in life, some more than others, it's how we deal with them that identifies who we truly are.  Focus on getting through the next single second ahead of you, then repeat that one step and you will pull ahead, then one day you will be again helping others.

Bruno, you do what ya gotta do! Doing nothing when something is destroying you slowly is sometimes the easiest option, unfortunately. I hear what your saying, you've beat things that seem like they should be harder than this. But think about this- you can quit drinking. Completely. Get it out of the house, don't go where it's served. You can't do that with food- you have to eat eventually! I struggle with food too. I need to get my weight down before I have one of those forty-something heart attacks (my dad had his first at 47, I'm 43 now). It's tough. I know quite a few folks who've had this surgery and are doing well, keeping the weight off now for many years. You will too. Pullin' for ya'!
