Well I was officially 2 weeks out from surgery yesterday. I am feeling pretty darn great physically. My incisions are all healed up. But man do they ITCH! I have been walking everyday since surgery. I am NOT getting enough protein in though because I canNOT stand the protein shakes. They make me gag. I am trying to figure out what to do about that. I am getting in enough water.
As of yesterday I was down a total of 35lbs. (16 of that post op).
Emotionally I am having ups and downs. (to be expected) Most of the hard stuff right now has to do with friendships treating me differently but I'm handling it ok. Life goes on. I actually have been turning to walking when my emotions are intense so that is a good change from pre surgery stress/emotional eating.
I received a very nice butterfly necklace from my mom and dad. On the back it reads "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, She became a butterfly."
I thought that was sweet. Here are the pics of the front and back.
