About me, my family, and my gastric bypass surgery

10 weeks

The doctors went well yesterday. Another few pounds, bringing the total up to 61lbs. gone. I'm happy with that. Other than that, I'm not very happy. I'm starting to regret my decision to have this surgery. I just don't think I'm cut out for it, but then again, I've already done it, so now I need to just deal with it.

I'm tired all the time, not just tired, but completely exhausted. I don't eat what I'm supposed to, so I don't get hardly enough protein. My hair is really coming out bad. It's very gross. I've noticed that I bruise very easily. I don't even notice I've bumped something, and the following day there will be a bruise there. At my appointment yesterday I talked to the nurse about all this. She ordered the bloodwork, and said we'll have to see what that shows. She's guessing it'll be lack of iron. Who knows.

The eating and protein thing are completely my fault. I don't like to try new things. I am so sick of chicken and tuna! I just need to be better about it. I guess I'll try. It's just getting really discouraging. I can only hope it will get better.
