So where to begin, again. Uhm, after surgery while in recovery one of the nurses commented on how great I was doing and that I was fantastic for having had a general anesthetic and that "it's almost as if you haven't had one at all!" I guess that's good, right?
My perogie went down just fine yesterday, in fact I had two. Kind of worried. I know I haven't had a fill but should I not feel some restriction still since things have to move along through the stoma that is most likely still swollen? Not feeling a decrease in appetite what so ever. Today I made a white sauce and threw in some cheddar cheese into it. Then I steamed some asparagus until it was really soft and put a bit of the sauce on top. It was great. Later I had some steamed brocolli and cauliflower with the sauce. For breakfast I'd had about 1/2 cup of rice pudding and I've also managed to eat about a 1/2 cup of jell-o today... Seems like a lot doesn't it??
I have to admit I'm getting kind of paranoid about my band maybe having slipped in my mess of a sunday night. How will I know if it has? Shouldn't I be in pain or something... or not being able to eat anything? I guess I will give the good doc's a call on monday. I have an appointment on the 24 in the evening to get my staples taken out. I can't wait. They're driving me nuts. It become almost obsessive that I check them to see if everything is healing and blah blah blah.
My parents are having pizza for dinner and I'm totally jealous. It smells amazing. It has black olives on it and it still smells/looks good... I HATE black olives.
Oh I did my measurements when I started the meditrim and the day of surgery. Here they are:
210 pounds
Bust - 48.5 inches
Waist - 48.5 inches
Hips - 48.5 inches
I was not surprised at the weight. The measurements however horrified me. I hadn't realized that my "curves" were in fact at a point that I was just, just, I guess fat all around.
203 pounds down 7 pounds
Bust - 47.25 inches down 1.25 inches
Waist - 44.5 inches down 4 inches
Hips - 47.75 inches down .75 inch
Overall I lost 7 pounds and 6 inches in two weeks. Not bad if I can say so myself.
I cheated the other day and stepped on the scale and it said I was at 198.5 pounds. That's not offical though, but I'm still excited!
Lots of Love - Les
