Two wks post-op
Jul 05, 20117/5/2011 - Two wks post-op. Today is my two wk surgiversary. Was sent home from hospital on full liquid diet, one wk post-op apt. Dr said to try scrambled eggs, cottage cheese, etc. and as long as I tolerate those, I could work in foods as I tolerate them. Needless to say I didn't venture too far out there. Have been horribly sick with allergies this past week, so have not wanted to eat much. I did try some tuna and some chicken salad. Did well with the scrambled egg and cottage cheese. I was worried I would not lose as much weight as fast as some do by going to solid foods so soon, but was grateful I did not have to live on liquids for weeks after either. Lost another ten lbs this past week, but even better, re-did my measurements today and here is proof that some people will lose inches before they lose pounds!!
My last taping was on 6/8/11 on the day of my pre-op apt. Since then, I have lost....
Waist: 5.25" (Going around and meeting over the belly button)
As of today, have lost 30 lbs since pre-op apt on 6/8/11.
