Monday is 9 weeks. I’ve lost about 30 pounds since surgery and 50 or so over all. I’ve lost 15 inches.
It’s all going pretty well. I’m back to “regular” food and still finding the balance between protein and water. It’s a lot to get in and track in a day. I have no pain and I haven’t had any terrible effects…I have learned if something doesn’t sit well, it doesn’t take too long for that uneasy feeling to pass…
I took my first plane trip since surgery to go to Disney World for Christmas. My youngest was my seat mate and when I buckled, he said “Mom, you don’t need the extender!” Nope…and I was fine in the middle seat!
Rides were more comfortable. I had more energy. I wore sneakers instead of flip flops…used to be sneakers contributed to a different challenge.
Clothes were a challenge…right now I’m like my kids. I’m changing super fast…it’s hard to keep clothes that fit…
Food was a challenge. I hadn’t re-introduced a lot of food after surgery and didn’t want adverse reactions…but I did okay. I didn’t meat protein goals…I’m working harder on that now. Water is a challenge…I’ve discovered in the last week or so I can drink almost normally…multiple sips at a time. That helps get the water in.
It’s all a learning curve…and I’m getting there.
