LilySlim - Weight loss

Thursday, April 1, 2010

One week post op visit to the Doc.

Everything went fine, I'm doing great. I got advanced to mushies, yippee! I lost 10.2 pounds, but at my house its 2 pounds more. I think I'd rather go by my scale, but anyway. I'm really doing great. I'm hungry though, with a vengeance today. I'm going to go get tuna from Subway for lunch today and I am some kind of excited about it! I think once I get a little more variety to my diet I'll continue to feel better and better. My appointment is set for my first fill in 5 weeks. I'm so excited. My incisions are looking good, except one little spot on the port incision has a little bump, the nurse said that I'm rejecting that stitch, and it will likely do like a splinter and fester a little then work it's way out. Last night I had some really bad shoulder and upper chest gas pain when I got in bed, I'm hoping that the worst is behind me. Thanks guys for taking this journey with me. My sassy do is a little better today, I'll take a pic tomorrow since I'm off and will have a little extra time. I hope I can figure out how to post one, I've been unsuccessful thus far at posting any of the pics that come with the different blog awards. I'm blonde on the inside.
Have a great day.
Hugs!
Tess

Yeah for mushies! I can start mushies at 2:00 PM after my first fill yesterday. You're weight loss is great and you will start feeling better once you get some real food in you.

I am so jealous of you starting mushies before me! I can't start them until next Wednesday!!! Actually, I may be starting them on Sunday anyway, a littly mushed up Lasagna never hurt anyone, right?

You are off to a great start....keep it up girlfriend!
