It's been 1 week and i can honestly say it has not been bad at all. I've had no horror stories, no side effects and oh, i lost 20lbs in the first week!!!
since first day home from hospital i've been walking 1-2miles per day -- my goal is to walk 45min per day until doc clears me for full exercises.
i still have not found a protein powder i like, i tasted one today i had to dump down the drain after the first sip.
i'm feeling VERY GOOD - i've been taking pics in a bathing suit... goal is to take same angle pics in that bathing suit every sunday evening - i noticed a difference in the first week comparison, kinda scary what it could be in 2, 4, 6months!!!
i did finally come clean with my brother and sister-in-law about the surgery, they seemed surprised but supportive. I did not tell them, but being smaller than others in my family for once is like a little competitive game i've got going in my head. I have officially passed my brother
, who is 2.8yrs my younger but he's 6'4", so he never "looks" fat... he's just a big guy... for once i weigh less than him, next is to have a lower BMI than him - LOL. i look forward to the day i weigh less than my husband!!!
Hormones would probably be my only vice right now, i've been on my period, a heavy one in comparison to few months prior to surgery - and husband and i have been arguing a bit, which we haven't done in a while. but he went for walk with me today and that felt good; hopefully they stay to the wayside for a while - we've been through too much for hormones to flair back up and bite us. he's been very supportive though.
I miss my son,
he's at his grandparents for the week so that i can rest and heal before starting back to work next week (2wks off) and my husband doesn't go insane... man i miss that little turdhead!!! AMAZING how quiet it is around here without him...
