Happy Birthday to Me!

By |2012-09-13T09:28:28-04:00August 30th, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

Okay, so my birthday was amazing. Not sure how amazing my food choices were, but they were definitely better than they would have been a year ago. I got extremely spoiled this year for my birthday. Probably more than I should have, but Jason is just that type of man, when he can do it, when we can afford it, he does it. My first birthday gift was a new iPod Touch from a group [...]

Another Sleep Study

By |2012-09-13T09:27:16-04:00August 26th, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

This has been a rather “hard week” for me. When I say hard, what I really mean is annoying and frustrating and one of those moments when I want to shout and someone and I just have to remember that this is a journey and that there are going to be bumps along the way. On the 13th sleep study at Northwest Sleep Health. Late last week I got a call from them asking me to come back [...]

Exercise and Me – What I’m doing in the Gym Pre-Op

By |2012-09-13T09:24:50-04:00August 16th, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

So several people in my life that are keeping up with my blog for info on what is going on with me in regards to my surgery have asked quite a bit about what I am doing for my exercise routine. When I started exercising a few months ago, I set out to walk a mile a day from the start. It took me about 30 minutes to do that at first, and I think [...]

The Sleep Study

By |2012-09-13T09:24:00-04:00August 13th, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

I went in yesterday for the Sleep Study that I have to do pre-op. Now I have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea for about 10 years. I was first diagnosed back in my early 20s the first time my weight hit 350lbs. Later when I lost all that weight when I first met Jason, and I was back down to about 225lbs again I was able to stop using the CPAP Machine and just go [...]

One Month working on Pre-Operative Requirements

Yesterday was a busy day. First it was up early to drive into downtown Portland again for my last appointment with the Psychologist; Dr. Ude was a very nice lady who made me feel very comfortable talking to her. She told me a bit about the results of my personality test and I have to say I was a little amazed at how accurate that thing was; shocked really. She basically told me I don’t like [...]

Getting a Sleep Study is Difficult

By |2012-09-13T09:22:09-04:00August 2nd, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

So after much fuss and much confusion, I finally got my sleep study ordered. Apparently my insurance requires that a “Sleep Specialist” order the Sleep Study, so I had to make two appointments, one to go in and see a Sleep Specialist which I’m gonna do on the 4th, and then he will order the Sleep Study. I’ve had sleep studies before, so I know what they are like. You go in and they glue a [...]
