Good morning beautiful people. Last Thursday I had my yearly check up with the gastric bypass doctor. I have lost 23 pounds since my last visit… which was in July 2016.. With that being said he also gave me information on the next skin removal seminar that is coming up at the end of this month. I am planning on attending because my stomach and my bat wings are my biggest concern. My skin hangs from my under arm drastically and causes problems with wearing shirts and dresses. Those suckers make me sick. If I got into a fight I could hit somebody in the face with those jokers and knock their butt out. Shoot I believe I can take flight with those bad boys. When I wear clothing that show my arms …I tuck and hide the flab. My arms looks massive to me because of the loose skin.
My stomach area do have excess skin but I wear spank to pull it in. If I decide to do the surgery I would have the skin removed off of my stomach first. My thighs are jiggy also and I hate that… However I can live with that.
One of the question I had for Dr. Ross, my Gastric Bypass Doctor was about my protein intake. I know I average around 80 to 100 grams of protein and was considering adding a protein shake at night. He explained that I should only use one supplement for protein such as my morning protein shake and the rest should come from my food intake. He also said to much protein and b12 can cause medical problems after extensive use. So you know me I had to research that and this is what I found out. Dr Mercola explained in his website that “Eating more protein than your body needs can interfere with your health and fitness goals in a number of ways, including weight gain, extra body fat, stress on your kidneys, dehydration, and leaching of important bone minerals. ”
I mention B12 because the doctor said mine was extremely high and I need to cut my down to only 1000 grams a week. He also explained that continue high levels of high levels of B12 could lead to diseases. So again you know I had to research it …. it was explained on the News health guide that high levels of B12 “could lead to itchiness on different body parts and numbness, improper heart functioning, giddiness and regular headaches. The most serious side effect linked to overtime abuse of this vitamin, is increasing the risk of getting cancer. This vitamin helps in stimulating the process of cell division. It, however, cannot distinguish between the harmful and useful cells. Therefore, vitamin B12 prompts the growth and multiplication of even the cancerous cells.”
Nevertheless I was happy and satisfied with my check up and I am staying proactive and on top of my weight to ensure that I eventually meet my weight goal which is only about 35 pounds away.
Be blessed and have a stressed free day! Love, peace and happiness beautiful people!
