I had a pretty busy weekend so I'm pretty tired tonight! Knitted with my girls yesterday and today was church and I did some flower planting after a trip to Lowes. Though I feel like I didn't even have surgery not even two weeks ago, I still feel like my butt is kicked at the end of the day!
So, how am I doing? Amazingly well. I have no pain, I'm tolerating everything I'm eating, even though it has to be the consistancy of applesauce. Gotta tell ya, I pureed stew tonight and it was good, once I got past the way it LOOKED! It reminded me of cat food. I'm learning what full feels like now as it is not the same as before. I am being very careful to get all my vitamins in, and to supplement my protein with at least one shake for breakfast. I am so gonna kick ass in this whole WLS thing!
And so far, I'm down 14 pounds in less than two weeks. I can't see it much yet, other than in my face a little. I'm doing what I have told other post-ops not to do and that is get on the scale every morning, but ya know, it's kind of like a new toy. There is also the fact that I feel FINE, so it's a little hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that I could possibly be losing weight. But I am and it's terribly exciting.
What has been funny, have been a few interesting comments.
From my youngest son to my husband: "So how skinny is mom gonna be when she gets home?"
From a 15 year old in the youth group to Kirk: "So Kim is going to be skinny when we see her?"
And the best one, from a woman in her sixties who is in my mom's TOPS group, "So, how much fat did they take out of her?"
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm sleepy now!
