My one week post-op appointment was today with my surgeon. I have been struggling to reach my minimum 64oz of fluids each day, and not even came close to my goal of 60g proteins each day - so I was dreading this follow up visit. I hit the scales and was 46 pounds down, 7 points lower on my BMI, and my excercise physiologist said that I was way ahead of schedule.
The bad news for me is that I have three more weeks on this FREAKING (for lack of a better word) liquid diet. The emotional/mental ailments associated with this procedure, are lurking (I can feel them). Also I have developed a transfer addiction (sorry folks, not as exciting as you'd hope) Vampire Diaries.
While I love spending time at home with my mom, I am excited to go back to work, see my friends again, and love on the sweet babies in my life. Thanks everybody for your kindness and support. Hold tight ... the ride has not yet begun to get good.
