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!!!!!!!!!!!!
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!!!
