So, I passed 1 week, 3rd week on liquids! Finally done. I started on full liquids last night. I had a soy free dairy free yogurt made of coconut milk. It was very good. I think I may have eaten too much. I had that first post op gas feeling? You know that kind that goes to your shoulders? It is gone this morging, but I am not hungry in the least bit. Is this normal? My family is starting to see changes! Awesome! The otherday I walked passed the mirror and caught my face in it, it seems to be taking on a slimmer me!!! I hate that I am always the last to see the weight loss, but I guess as long as others see it and my clothes notice it too, that is all that matters.
For healing, going good. It's just reminding my 3 yr old that I can't pick him up or carry him. And that he can't use my stomach as a launch pad anymore. Whenever I remind him, he wants to see the owie, has to touch it then makes a funny face and asks me if I am ok. Too sweet.
I haven't weighed since being home from surgery(we stayed in Puerto Vallarta for 4 days)I am trying really hard not to buy a scale
I would obcess about the number. But I feel myself wearing down. We'll see how long it takes for me to go buy one. I guess if I were back at work I wouldn't worry about it. I am a nurse so I have access to scales all day, not sure if that is a good thing or not. We'll see.
Going to visit family tomorrow in Eastern Wa. Me and the kids are going to give dad a break. My aunt is an awesome cook and always does up the best breakfast, I hope I can stay strong and only eat my liquids....
