Over 2 weeks out and all is well
Entry posted by kbowlin74 ·
Well I went for my 2 week checkup on Thursday and they said I was doing very well. I have lost 19 pounds and am walking 2 miles a day. I cant wait to get back in the gym but I have 2 more weeks until the doctor will release me. My incisions are healing great. I am hoping that once they completely heal there will be no signs of the surgery. I am loving the comments from all the naysayers before surgery about how they can already tell I am losing weight. I just smile and think haha.
I think the hardest thing has been cooking my favorite foods for my family and not licking the spoons. I made the mistake of making chicken salad and licking the spoons as I was finished with them. By the time I finished the chicken salad and cleaned up I was not even hungry. Lesson learned.
Overall life has resumed back to normal. Since surgery I have been to 3 concerts, the comedy club, a company lunch and church every Sunday(All this in addition to work every day). It amazes me how much energy I already have. I am so optimistic that I even volunteered for a position on a committee at work that will include me flying to CA and TX. My goal is to be small enough to skip the seatbelt extension before the travel starts. Before surgery I would never have considered it.
One other thing I have learned is that when I add a scoop of the protein shake to my yogurt it is easier to get my protein in. Also taking my vitamins is essential. I missed my vitamins one morning and thought I was going to fall asleep driving home from work. I will not do that again.
I know this post has been all over the place but I wanted to make sure I posted all the things I have learned up to this point.
