i feel real good. fortunately, i am not sick and tired of the liquids - day 17 of liquids and 11 more to go then pureed. i have sooo many things in mind that i am going to puree! i just can't help wonder if my appetite will increase once i start to have things with texture and more flavor going in. i'm thinking i haven't felt any 'restriction' and i do wonder what that will be like. scary thoughts!
i went back to the gym on saturday for the first time doing cardio - i did 10 mins on the nustep and 10 on the stationary bike ( the knee won't let me do treadmill.) one of the workers there asked for my clearance note - i had completely forgot - and said i couldn't exercise. i was so disappointed - but he let me finish the ten minutes. immediately sent a clearance note monday morning. so i went back last night - and did 15 and 15 - and while i felt good, i was tired. but, i stepped on my home scale this morning and it was 249 - havent' seen that side of 250 in i really don't know how long - easily 4 years!!! what a neat feeling inside.
i realized i need to keep track of my little milestones and feelings. so i am going to. i also think that i may have a numb spot on my abdomen right above my belly button to the right of my port incision. not a big deal, just something i've noticed. well, gonna close - need to do some housework.
