Ive been MIA this week as I went back to work on Monday—only 9 days post-RNY. It was TOUGH. Finished early every day, had a lot more pain, but I made it and it’s the weekend!! I’m 15 days post op so, for fun, I thought I’d try on the jeans I was wearing pre-op. In fact, I wore them the day before my surgery. Yeah, they’re falling off me and unwearable already. So, for more fun, I dug out a pair of pants that only fit me briefly (for about two months) in 2014, when I was last at a weight I felt less awful about. (Disclaimer: I was at this weight because I was sick, waiting for a hysterectomy, and my wife was having treatment for breast cancer. Not the happiest time and not the best way to lose weight...) Anyway...the pants fit!! Crikey!! I’m hoping I might get a couple of months wear from them...at least until Thanksgiving?
I’ve also made my September weight loss goal this morning. Victories all round!
Hoping to go apple picking with Lovely Wife this afternoon. First, a spot of light housework and a quick trip to GNC to hunt down some chewable calcium citrate and then Trader Joe’s for some of the beef cabbage rolls @laurenlosing
had in her story last night. Might not be on my menu just yet, but I want those babies in my freezer ready for when I’m cleared for veggies in a couple of weeks.
Happy Saturday, everyone—May your day be restful and positive 💝💝💝
