WOW!! 9 pounds in 9 days. How amazing is that? Dr. LaMasters said that she thinks that I am doing pretty well. The incisions are healing just fine too. Dr. Brady told me I was on track. We went over some weight loss goals. My first goal is to get under 300. Which I am almost there. My weight yesterday was 313. When I weighed before surgery I was at 322. After I meet the 299 goal….I want to reach for 270. I have looked at the dates yet to see what the target date is. I will be working on that later today.
Eating is so different now. Mostly getting protein from shakes and drinks. I can start eating things like chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad. It’s getting better. Just have to eat the soft/liquidy foods. I can start eating scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes. This morning I am drinking my shake and enjoying some oatmeal with some fresh peach puree in it. Doesn’t taste half bad. I can’t take my meds all at once either. One at a time. Good thing they discontinued some of my meds now. I made an appointment to see Dr. Goetsch here in town to get some blood work done. Gotta keep up on the iron, potassium, VitD, and uric acid levels. They were the ones giving me such trouble before.
I put on a pair of capris that were a little tight before. They fit great now. Amazing feeling being able to get into something that was tight before and now is very comfortable.
This journey is off to a running start now. It’s very exciting and very fun. I will be starting Zumba water aerobics after Labor Day. I am excited about that also. Last semester about half way through they cancelled the class cuz people didn’t come. So I am really hoping people stick this out.
Second day of classes today. I have 3 of them: The Holocaust, Fundraising and Budget/Grant Writing, and Non-Profit Youth agencies. Start at 11 and will be home sometime around 6pm.
Life is good. God is good all the time. And all the time God is good.
