So, I’m almost two weeks post op, and including the pre op diet, I’ve lost around 30 lbs. I can definitely feel it. All of my largest clothes are super loose. Most of those clothes were bought in the last 6 months out of desperation. I don’t have many pictures because I’ve been wearing sweats and pajama pants every day, because elastic waist feels best on my stomach. But here is one day I wore real clothes.
The pants are super big but the shirt is one I couldn’t wear any more because it had gotten way too tight and now I can wear it.
Tomorrow I start purées and I can’t wait. I’ve been down in the dumps. It’s hard not eating, hanging mostly at home, and not spending money. Hahaha. But today Henry and I got outside because the weather was finally nice enough! We went on a small walk and it was just what the doctor ordered to get me motivated to do a few other things around the house that I needed to do.
I have a Shipt order in to be delivered this afternoon to make my purées. Some things I’m going to be having; cottage cheese, scrambled egg, baked ricotta casserole, puréed cauliflower casserole, cottage cheese bake, mashed sweet potato. I can not wait. I think it will give me more energy. And the protein shakes are practically making me gag I’m so sick of them.
I go back to school next Thursday and I am so excited to be back in the swing of things although it’s going to be a super busy fourth quarter. But the good news is I’ll have more energy!
Hope all is well with everybody and thanks for all who have checked in on me regularly.
