Have any of you ever had a belly button ring? Did you ever have to take it out and then tried to put it back in and got light headed and nauseous because it freaked you out? Anyone.......???? (Hopefully someone knows what I'm talkin' about lol) What happened to me today kinna reminded me of that. I've actually been feelin' much better these past two days and I bent over to pick up clothes to put in the wash and I smushed my insides too much!! Ugh, I squeezed, what I guess was my port area, a little too much and felt it tug, on something (I'm guessin' my muscle)...it hurt and it made me real uneasy. Other than that little episode I've been feelin' so much better. I did take some pain meds because my port area is extremely sore now and has swollen again. I really hope I didn't do anything bad to it...that would be just my luck if I did.
Good news, if my scale is correct (I say this because I should really splurge and get a new one) I've lost a total of 18lbs!!! This includes all the weight I've lost since about 2 months before pre-op. See I went through 'Last Supper Syndrome' for about, oh, the first four months of my doc visits so I lost nothing and probably even gained a few. Then about month five I really started transitioning into healthy eating and I lost about 5lbs just doing that. So YAY me! I'd really like to put a tracker on the side of this blog so I can record it but I need to figure out how to do that. (help would be appreciated)
Aaaaand...it's week 2, purees. I can't tell you how excited I am about this week. Not only do I get to
eat sip something thick, but I get to sip on soup and I heart soup. So I made me a big bowl of Low Fat Broccoli Cheese Soup (I wanted broccoli for a reason) and it was good ...no it was PERFECT! My hubby was still able to enjoy it and I just pureed my little 1/2 cup. I also cooked it all day in the Crock Pot so everything was extra mushy.
