Ok. So I’m 3 days post op. Still some pain under my ribs and some fatigue. But not bad at all. I just have to actually take the cues from my body and rest. Went to the supermarket and everything looked delicious... but no temptation, just ready to get back to eating real (good) food when my body is ready.

Girl, let me tell you what is about to feel even more surreal for everyone who’s got a date coming soon. I just ate the tiniest cup of Tomato Soup, like literally maybe 1/3 cup, and I am stuffed. 🤣

I felt the same after 1/4 C of cream of chicken Soup today

I discovered these today. A little cheaper than premier on Amazon but they are pretty delicious. Downside is only chocolate and vanilla. I bought the vanilla.

Surgery went well yesterday. Woke up early this morning and been walking. Just had a long hot shower and feeling very well. Just a tiny bit of gas discomfort under my left ribs but all in all, nothing at all like my original VSG. Even the incisions don’t feel bad. They placed a drain on my left side that’s a bit sore but not bad. So ready for some broth or something besides ice chips.

I hope everyone who is recovering and preparing are in the best spirits. I'm reading and taking notes on everything being shared. I went to do my labs today, before my pre- op appt. on June 27th so the Bariatric team can get a realistic look at what we need to do to get me surgery ready. My A1C is back up to 5.8 from 5.3, I'm anemic/iron deficient, had 3 periods since May 3rd (currently on the 3rd one), went to get an ultrasound today so I can get to the source of this body drama...On week 3 of my Options class (Kaiser 12 weeks mandatory), I've lost almost 30 pounds since last September....so I thought I was doing great and now all of this body drama. Today, I honestly feel scared & confused. My stress levels have already been high, I'm thankful for this platform and staying encouraged via all of you and your strength.

Just remember that there's no use in stressing out over something you can't change. The additional stress is probably making your body drama even worse. I know it's easier said than done, but try your best to stay calm and just roll with whatever happens :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
