Today was supposed to be my surgery day. I wore myself out getting my classroom closed and caught a virus that gave me a productive cough. Surgeon gave me the option of taking a chance, but I’m not keen on pneumonia with a new stomach. So my new date is June 8. I was a bit disappointed but mostly glad that I could sleep all day yesterday and not drive up to TN.
Since my last post almost a month ago, I’ve had a lot of victories. My nutritionist put me on a week of high protein low carb diet, then 2 weeks of smoothies. Today starts my 3rd week. I suppose that with 2 Weeks more I could have hopped off for some tuna or eggs, but I have a bad history when it comes to getting back on the wagon. So I’m still doing all liquids. Yay for me. I’ve lost 15 lbs (accounting for clothing) since May 1st. I now weigh 257lbs. I had a stall at week three but I seem to be past it.
It’s been hard from a society standpoint to be on all liquids. Missing out in partaking of staff treats, group dinners, etc. My mom told me recently she doesn’t think she could do it. From a body standpoint I know what stomach hunger feels like, but I’m free of the munchies and cravings that plagued my life. So 2 weeks more. If this is to shrink the liver then I guess I’ll have the skinniest liver ever.
