It's only been 4 full days since surgery but today I feel like I've turned a corner. I have only taken one pain pill today, and haven't needed any more. I feel I have more energy and even got outside today. It seems so simple, but just a quick trip to the grocery store with the family made me feel more human! The smell of food cooking didn't make me nauseous today, and actually started to smell good. I felt a bit hungry too, which is good because I've been having a lot of trouble getting in even half of my daily protein requirement. I also took a multivitamin which I had been afraid to do until today. Lots of baby steps, but steps in the right direction!
I guess my biggest accomplishment is that I'm down a total of 10 pounds. That's 6 from my pre-op liquid diet, and 4 since surgery. That means I now weigh less than I did when I got pregnant with baby #2! It feels good to get the baby weight off since the 'baby' is 3 years old! Now I'll be working on the weight from Baby #1. All in due time.
I've decided to post my weight loss once a week, on Saturday. I chose that day because that was my old Weight Watchers 'weigh in' day. I'm more likely to remember to do it if I stick to the familiar.
Until next time, be well!
