Today is August 17. My surgery was August 5. I am doing much better this week. Discomfort with my port site has lessened. Started teaching last week...one week after surgery. Was rough at first, but getting better.
Today was my last day on full liquids. Tomorrow I get to start with soft foods. So far I have lost 22 pounds. My clothes are beginning to get much looser and others are noticing my loss.
Got a new hair cut and color.....brightened me.
This is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am already off of my diabetic and reflux medicine....My meter counts are lower than I believe they have been in ten or more years....
One of most important things about this odyssey is the feeling of confidence I get when I can ignore that feeling of hunger and know that, for the first time in my life, I am in control.
