I am feeling so good today! I went to the hospital this morning for a check up with my surgeon, he said everything looked great!! He took all the tape off my incisions, and also took out a loose stitch that had popped out of one of the small incisions. I am so happy to have all the tape gone, so hopefully now I can get some of the gross adhesive gunk off! When I weighed in I had lost 22lbs since my last visit, wahooo! My bathroom issues are finally gone, and I have been keeping everything down really well! My diet right now consists of protein shakes, yogurt, pudding, jello, and creamy soups. I feel ready to progress but am too scared too. Next week I can have mashed potatoes mmmm yummy! KFC has the BEST mashed potatoes lol.
Last night I had to worst temptation night EVER. My fiancee had a business dinner party to go too, and I went along. The thought never even crossed my mind, that this might be awkward and difficult for me :( We get there and there is an open bar, and someone handing me a a glass of wine which is my first temptation. I ask for water and sparkling is given to me, which is another no no, so then I have to ask for flat. Then the appetizers start coming out, pulled pork sandwiches, all kinds of cheese and crackers, goat cheese tart, asparagus, salads....ehhh I felt soooo bad having to say no thank you to everything. I didn't know these people though, so I didn't feel like I should have to explain myself....I said I had a stomach bug and was on anti-biotics. Dinner was prime rib and dessert was some sort of cake.....I was so strong and said NO to everything! I was really cranky when we left and starving, I broke down and balled cause I was so upset. We finally got home around nine and I dove into the gallon of sherbet in the freezer. I had 2 scoops and that made me feel soooo much better!
Back to work today, and feeling strong. All done with appointments until my first fill on 9/11. Now if only this itching would stop!
