  1. This week (week 6) has been an eventful one in my little weight loss world.

    I had my first "have you lost weight? You look good" comment from a friend in my book club on Tuesday. Of course she also asked "What have you been doing?" so I was honest and told her I had bariatric surgery - it still feels like a cop-out. "Well, I had bariatric surgery...so I've been eating fewer than 800 Calories a day and exercising more."

    I also took my first Zumba class! It was lots of fun. I checked my watch after the first 15 minutes or so and I thought there was no way I was going to make it through the entire 50 minutes, but I did it and then proceeded to walk the 1.5 miles or so home. I think I might try Zumba again on Friday through another organization to see if I like that one better and then pick whether I want to do the Wed 5:30pm class or Fri 7:30pm class. Maybe I'll continue to do both? That would make my current "workout" schedule Zumba 1-2 nights a week, and a brisk 1.5mi walk 4-5 times a week.

    I still have a looooong way to go, but I think I've started out right.

  2. Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

      I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
