Book #2.. Ideas, thoughts, feelings?

On January 19, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

I’ve been working on book #2.  It doesn’t have a title yet, so please don’t ask what it is.  Or really, when it will be done.  I’m putting a goal out there that I will be able to unveil it for the WLSFA event in Las Vegas — that is mid May.  So 4 months?  We’ll see.

For now, I do have a working outline.  Thought I would put it out for people to give thoughts and ideas on.  Keep in mind, this isn’t carved into stone, but I’d rather not add another 100,000 words or so to what’s already here.

I’m copying and pasting, so forgive any errors with the transition from Word to WordPress.. they don’t always sync well..

    OK, I will be first. If your audience is pre-op people, this is great! For me, though, I only want a book about my own surgery and how it relates to me. I don’t want to wade through and “bypass” (pun intended!) sections that are not for me. So if your audience is post-op, maybe make your second book into 4 books? Just a thought!

  2. Toni Lee says:

    I like Laurie’s idea. I’m an RNY (who wishes she’d been sleeved lol). I like the thought of buying a book that only pertains to my surgery.
    Or if it’s going to be in a notebook maybe a way that we can just take out the ones that don’t pertain to us and throw them away?
    I love that you do all of this. :)

  3. Rachel says:

    I want all 4… but then again I am intending to be a professional post-op so I want and need to know all the info for all 4 surgeries. I think the list is really all inclusive! I am excited for the finished product!! You have your work cut out for you!!

  4. Debbie Rogers Owen says:

    Hi – great idea. I think it would be useful to have a section about dealing with specific deficiencies if and when they occur after surgery – a sort of “what to do if your vitamin D level is too low” (I’m currently dealing with this) etc so that the book can deal with on-going issues after surgery.

    Also perhaps something on nutrition/vitamins for significant exercise (eg 10k, 1/2 marathons etc) post WLS – as this is a big challenge for those who burn lots of extra calories and find it a struggle to get nutrition right to do this with reduced calorie intake.

    I like what Debbie says. If you’re looking for other stuff to include, what about a section on complications. OR – other medications that should be taken on a regular basis and why (thinking PPIs).
