LilySlim - Weight loss

Today has gotten away from me!

So, today is my second day back at work and I feel absolutely great. I can't believe it. Yesterday by the time I got home I was crying, I was all emotional and had a throw down with my brother/boss (thank God he's my brother, he didn't run me off.) I was super tired and bloated and just didn't feel well. I went home fixed some soup for myself, took some Tylenol and GasX a went to bed at 8:00. I woke feeling like a new woman!

So, today went great, I have 1 hour left at work and am not tired at all. I was really hungry yesterday and was having serious pain with the rumblings. But in retrospect, I think those bad pains were more like gas than hunger. I'm barely hungry at all today and have plenty of energy. I was able to leave today to go get a haircut and I really changed my hairstyle. It's sassy and fun. My husband is out of town on business until tomorrow, maybe that added to my crabby pattiness last night. I was tired and lonesome.

I weighed today and, I wasn't going to weigh until I went to see my doc on Thursday, but I couldn't help myself. I'm down 11 pounds since my surgery. I was a little shocked. I don't feel like I've lost anything, because my stomach is still pretty swollen. How long does it take for the swelling to go down? I'm tired of the pregnant look.

All in all, another good day. I'm glad I did this and I'm glad my recovery has gone so smoothly. I hope everyone is doing well and thanks so much for all of your supportive comments. You guys rock.

Hugs,
Tess

I agree with everyone else!! Can't wait to see the new do!! As for the swelling, I think my swelling was down in a couple of weeks? It's hard to remember.

Glad that you're doing so well. Your loss is fantastic, you must be so happy.
I'm on liquids for 3 weeks! Solids sound great to me!
