It's hard to believe that a month has already gone by since my surgery. I am feeling great and have lost 22 pounds so far. I'm not sure if anyone else went through this, but I feel a little "down in the dumps" sometimes when I see others eating yummy food, or if I have to quit eating WAY before I want to. How selfish is that, I want to lose weight but be able to eat like I used to. I am very happy that I had the surgery but making the lifestyle change is a little harder than I expected. I am however eating new foods all the time which makes mealtime interesting. I am still sticking to the low carb plan, but I am not stressing out about it. I just eat when I'm hungry and that seems to be working just fine. :biggrin0: The tender spot on my left side finally quit hurting, yea!! I can actually sneeze without any pain. I can't stand my chewable vitamins but I'm trying my best to at least get one in every day, I'm supposed to be taking two. The calcium chews are yummy and give me that chewing satisfaction. I promised pics after I lost 25 pounds, so only three pounds away! I?ll be in Mexico next week, so I'll post an update as soon as I get back on the 30th. Thanks for reading and support, I really appreciate it.
