I only idled around my new flat both yesterday and today and on Friday evening instead of studying. Hubby says one needs a break once in a while. Problem is, I can't afford this break atm. Three days of not-studying is a no-go so I'm going to look at some material tonight. If I wouldn't be feeling so damn tensed and tired these days... but things are just like they are.
I also had an ESG done by Dr. McGowan. Mine was in June 2020 and so far pounds lost is 54 with 4 pound to go until I reach goal. How have you been doing and do you have any questions since I'm several months ahead of you?
10 Days post op. Wow, what a journey so far.
Pre op was straightforward, over the Christmas and New Year period but I was ok with that.
Day of op, pretty stunned really, was I doing the right thing. A quick nervous wee before I was put under and VOILA...done.
Day 1 and 2 post was a freaking mess. Mentally that is. Lots of questions, lots of doubts, lots of fear.....then day 3 came and bingo I felt so much better, about 80%.
Skip to Day 10. I am feeling pretty satisfied most of the time, not really hungry. My skin is amazing. The weight is literally dropping off but I'm under no disillusionment that this will slow considerably shortly. I have started to experiment with different liquids and found I absolutely despise liquidised meat. YUCK.
My belly scars are almost gone, but they have left a little lump and they can be tender. I wouldn't call it sore.
I am managing to get my protein up just over 60g a day, but that's with the help of two scoops of protein powder in my liquid meals. Drinking sitting directly upright is my only comfortable option which is ok, and I've learned to love jelly/jello.
Biggest changes? Confidence. Libido (yep, it's back with a vengeance after being dormant for about 5 years). Energy increase. Clothes starting to fit better.
Biggest disappointment? I really don't have anything to be disappointed about except I didn't do it sooner.
Biggest surprise? How quickly I have recovered and am seeing results.
