Super Saturday

Well it has been 5 days since I had surgery and I am fine as frog hair split four ways. Seriously...I feel great! I still feel like I was punched in the stomach, but no other complaints. I think I was the luckiest girl in the world because I never did have any of those awful gas pains that everyone else talks about.

I haven't been on the scale...I'm kinda skeered. What if it hasn't moved??? I think I am going to wait until Monday at my first post op appointment. At home I wouldn't think twice about throwing myself in floor and having an emotional breakdown with arms and legs flailing about if the scale hasn't moved...but I think I will have some restraint if that happens at the doctor's office.

So according to The Boy I now officially suck at grocery shopping. Every week I ask him what he wants from the grocery store and he usually replies "whatever." Well, in the past "whatever" to me meant pizza, cookies, snack cakes, doughnuts, and anything else that tickled my fancy at the time. This week his reply was the same, but to me that meant "whatever you choose mom, I love you and would never want to tempt you all those unhealthy, artery clogging, make your ass bigger foods...just make it something healthy and we will all join you in this quest for good health"....well, apparently I was way wrong for assuming that is what he meant...and have been dubbed the worst grocery shopper ever. Whatever, I've been called worse :)

For quite a few days after surgery I was up in weight 7 lbs. because I had retained all the IV fluids. I'm not sure you had as much IV since you didn't stay overnight, but just don't want you to be too disappointed if you aren't down in weight at your first weigh in.

That's great that he wants to join you in your healthy eating!

And you WILL have lost something. At least 6 lbs, I bet! :)

If nothing else, he will need to ask for what he wants from the grocery store....
You will see a loss. Maybe you can dance at the doctor's office when you see it.
