3.5 Months Post-op

Sep 08, 2009

Well I just uploaded a few photos. Nothing too spectacular, but I can notice a difference in my face. I can notice a major difference in my body too, but just not in the photos since there are no full body shots...yet. I will get them eventually. I just need to suck it up and ask a friend to take some for me. I would take them in the mirror but my camera thinks it's smarter than me and I can't figure out how to turn the flash off.

I don't  weigh myself very often, and Iike it that way. Everyday someone asks me how much I've lost. ("How much this week? Another 10?") I usually just make an estiamate based on how I'm feeling in my clothes that day. That being said, I don't think I've lost any weight in the past few weeks. I've lost hair, but that's another issue. I'm not worried about the stall right now. I've started the NuvaRing and I need to let my hormones get back into check. And having just completed that wonderful time of the month doesn't help either. Now, I say that I don't think I've lost any weight, but my clothes have gotten bigger in the past few weeks. I bought a pair of 18 NY&Co trousers 2 weeks ago, and today they were getting baggy. It was a bittersweet moment: I love those pants and I want to wear them forever and ever...But I'm glad they are big because that means that I am still on my way to getting small.

The past 3 weeks or so has been tough for me when it comes to protein intake. I just don't want to eat. Things seem to be looking more positive though, as I have rediscovered shrimp and the endless culinary possibilities that they possess. Yum. I'm going to search Barnes and Noble for a WLS cookbook this week, so then maybe I can possibly start eating good food everyday. I'm just not that creative in the kitchen, and I think that is where my protein intake problems begin.

Oh, and I think I mentioned that I'm losing my hair. Well I am. It started about a month ago. It's not noticable after my hair is styled, but it sure is noticable to my brush! When my hair first started to shed I got it cut just a little shorter (just a little past my jawline) with some layers and whatnot. My cousin has her own salon in Virginia so I made a special trip just to have her cut my hair, because she does an amazing job.

Well I think that about does it for me. It's 5am and I'm rocking out to some Brian Setzer and Electric Light Orchestra...but I really need to go to sleep so I don't end up sleeping the entire day away tomorrow.

Rock on!
