Day 2 of 5 - resetting my pouch!

So today is day two of my new life.  I feel fantastic!!!!!  I have so much energy and guess what??? 

I lost 1.8 pounds since yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO ME!!!!

I seriously owe a big thank you to Kaye Bailey for writing these fantastic books and creating The Neighborhood on-line community where people just like me can find strength and encouragement after weight loss surgery.

I seriously thought I was broken.  I thought I had failed.  I thought I was stupid!!!

I have learned I am none of those things. 

I am in remission from obesity and have to live this way the rest of my life.

I thought after surgery I didn't have to do any work, that my stomach would do the work for me but I was wrong.  My stomach is just the tool, I have to do the work, every day, for the rest of my life. 

Oh and yesterday I said I gained 44 pounds?? Not true, it's really 46 pounds!  Yeah me (not really!). 

So like I said my first goal is getting the 46 pounds off.  Then I will chip away at another 38.  Then I will conquer 20 more pounds to be at my goal weight for the rest of my life!!!!

Day 1 of liquids was not so bad, although I did have an emotional breakdown over something that happened in my family and I almost lost it and ate solids, BUT . . . I didn't!  Instead I heated up some chicken broth and let the warm soup fill my belly ;)!

Day 2 is liquids also, I so got this!

Can't wait until tomorrow when I move on to soft protein!  I will be having an egg burrito and tuna patties!!!
