I'm thrilled to say that I'm about 97% back to normal and 19 pounds lighter! I was 250 pounds on the first day of my liquid diet and I weighed in this morning at 231. That's about a size already and I even had to move my car seat up an inch.
Oh and just because I post my weight on Fridays doesn't mean I don't peek at the scale during the week...it's a horrible habit and I must stop.
Wednesday I had my one week post-op visit with my amazing surgeon (Dr. McDreamy as he's known around here) who was thrilled with my progress and moved me on to soft foods! Hooray!!
|Shelley you might remember these little fiesta dishes which are now the perfect size for me :)|
Walking has been interesting. I'm not used to moving so slow and I kinda feel like the crazy guy (it's not his fault he's crazy he got hit by a bus) in the neighborhood who just walks around aimlessly jamming out to his iPod. The upside is I see more interesting things in the neighborhood when I'm walking vs running where I'm only focused on trying not to die :) I've helped old ladies, rescued dogs that got loose, criticized many landscape designs and said hi to many random strangers. Today I did 2.5 miles and once we do another 1.5 with the dogs this evening it will be 4 miles. I'm good with that and will keep increasing my distance - especially on the weekend. I also intend to get back in the pool next week to mix it up. I miss my yoga and my trainer but I will be back the minute I'm allowed!
Have a great weekend everyone. I'll be over here putting all kinds of things in the food processor.
