Two week post-op
Monday, August 16, 2010
I'm two weeks out from gastric bypass surgery and I'm having a good time. Today, I got to eat some real food...non shakes. I had tuna to start off with because it is easier to digest than chicken they say. It was good. Just plain ole tuna and lowfat mayo. I still feel stuffed even though it was only 2.5 oz total for lunch. Protein amazes me.
I have always been supportive of low-carb diets and eating plans. So, this eating / surgery change is good for me. Protein is good for healing. This surgery is already working on healing more than I expected it to. There is alot of healing in my head that needs to go on as well.
I know I'm going to be doing alot of self-talk in the future so that my brain and my new body will be in sync.
My mother keeps bugging me already wanting to know daily how much i've lost. sigh. I told her I do not weigh daily and it's been 2 wks with 12 pounds lost. I'd like to say that my mom was nice but that just isn't the case. She raised 4 girls and we all have issues. Now, I just consider the ignorance and move on.
But it's not about her this time. It's about me. At this stage in my life I feel pretty confident about myself and not so much about what others think of me. Thank God for menopause. Really! It's liberating.
And thank God for gastric bypass and wonderful doctors like Dr. Gregory Barnes! He's the best.
Well, it's the end of my day at work so i'm gonna shut this down.
Tonight is lean ground beef night. yippee.
