One Week Later

If I had known last week what I know now, I'd have stocked up an a lot more straws.

You see, small, s-l-o-w sips are best, and this can best be accomplished with a straw. Gulps and chugs aren't too smart. They hurt.

But, I can honestly say that I feel a lot better, if only a bit frustrated over my food situation.

I'm not proud, I'm admitting here and now that I bought some baby food today. It can't hurt, right? Next week when I move on to the soft solids part of my diet, I want to be ready. I think I've forgotten how to chew!

As for weight loss, I've lost ten pounds thus far. A friend of mine told me yesterday that I've lost too much, and I laughed. I've got a week to go on the liquid diet! But I can see my cheekbones again; I look more like my younger self.

A liquid diet is tough. When I had my surgery I was told that I couldn't have real food until I had gas and that meant getting out of bed and walking the halls. Let's just say that I was pounding the carpet for hours just because I was hungry. And why don't hospitals buy real jello? It's not as if my stay was free and they were trying to save money!
