So here's an update...
total lost so far is 16 pounds...give or take one or two for water retention...*LOL*...
I need to chew. It's so hard being on the liquid diet. I'm chewing sugar free gum for the 'sensation' right now.
I've gotten the hiccups a lot. If I drink something to fast there I go 'hiccuping'. At first I was worried, but now I know how to get rid of them. (just hold my breath).
My belly is swollen only on one side. (where my port is) Dh says it looks like it did when I was preggers and the baby would lay just on one side of my belly. It's kinda noticible, but oh well.
Christmas was hard...nummy food. But I was soo good! ! !
I can't wait to eat real food again. I hate thinking about it, because then I want it. If I didn't have to cook meals, I think it would be better.
Already some people are showing strange signs regarding my surgery:
~Close Friends haven't called to see how I am doing
~My dad has informed my children (ages 9, 6 and 4) that mommy's surgery was a mistake.
~Online friends want all the info, and then when they get it, the tell me I'm bragging and need to stop.
~My good skinny friend is the most supportive I have had so far! ! !
~My mom continues to starve herself to prove she doesn't need WLS to lose the weight.
~My dh is enamored and more in love with me.
So, there are good and bad. I think the true friends will be there for the long haul.
If anyone asks if this is the easy way out...I'm gonna knock them upside the head. It's so hard...and It's a forced lifestyle commitment. I don't think that is easy at all...but the rewards will be great.
So...there's my update...whohoo! ! !
