Hey. An update since I realized that I haven't written anything for quite some time. I will try and get down something of substance as well. First off, I lost 8 pds at my 2 wks post op so that was great news!!
So I did find out last week that my doctor wants me to stay home for 4 weeks so I don't go back to office until October 29th. I am going a bit stir crazy here.
I know that I am supposed to use this time to get used to eating, but I am not on a good schedule. I think that I need to run my days like I would if I were at work. Getting up at that time and try to come up with a better schedule. Right now I go to bed late and sleep in. This is not good for my what my bodies "normal" schedule will be like.
I know I shouldn't be on the scale but I am struggling to see it in the 240s. I feel as though it should be since my calories are low. I will need to make sure and kick up my walking more. I would like to see a good number for when I go see my NUT next week.
Vitamins, vitamins, vitamins......I NEED TO REMEMBER. I am having a very hard time remembering my vitamins. This is driving me crazy. I never took pills on a regular basis before surgery (I know, I was lucky), and I know that I need to create a habit. I did get rid of one pill and opted for B-12 by injection. No problem giving myself a shot every month to not take a another pill.
I am so thankful for this surgery and I want to do my very best that I can do. I just get a bit frustrated at times. I want to gulp down my water and then I remember to only take a sip. I have actually had to spit out mouthfuls of water as to not hurt myself.
Thanks for listening and have a GREAT night.
