Well surgery was 25 days ago today! Wow already....I tried to eat a little price of hamburger dipped in ketchup today....a few cheese puffs....and watermelon....everything was great even though I knew maybe u shouldn't be eating this already! But it was a BBQ so I figured a quarter size amount would not kill me! Big mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was SO sick alllllllll day! Not ready for this yet I don't think! But close!

I was sleeved 11 days ago and everything so far goes down great. Haven't really tried much though. All liquids go down good. Yogurt is good. Has gnocchi Soup yesterday at Olive Garden for lunch and the left overs for supper. All good. Kids made homemade corn dogs and Mac and cheese for lunch. Took two nibbles of the cornbread breaking and tasted a noodle to make sure it was done. I defiantly fill a heaviness in my tummy even though it was two tiny nibbles but I feel ok. So far so good. And down 28lbs in 11 days post op!

Sleeved on the 20th. Finally lost my first post-op pound yesterday after gaining 10lbs of fluids in the hospital! Now I'm 224.4, from 250 on July 12th when I started my pre-op dieting. It does feel pretty good to be getting back down there!

I'm able to keep my liquids down, but drinking them in the first place isn't too fun. :\ I know I'm not drinking as much Water as I should be, but I'm doing okay on my Protein Shakes. The worst part so far has been the incredible exhaustion and sadness. It just comes on instantly out of nowhere and I have to take a nap wherever I end up sitting down. I guess I've been lucky so far though. No pain or nausea. Really looking forward to getting these itchy staples out and progressing on to some mushy foods!
