Well, here I am about 6 weeks out. I feel AWESOME! Below are some stats:
Total Loss: 62
Dress Size: 32
Walk Duration: 20 mins
And now the Then and Nows, or BS (before surgery, not bullshit!) and AS.
Then: I could barely get out of bed in the morning and it took a VENTI Starbucks Mocha to wake me up.
Now: I hit snooze a few times, but then pretty much jump out of bed with all this ENERGY!
Then: A 15 minute trip to the grocery store left me in pain and exhausted.
Now: I just walked around Sam's Club for an hour with NO pain and NO tiredness.
Then: A typical breakfast for me would be 2 Bacon/Egg/Cheese Biscuits, 1 egg McMuffin, and 2 cinnamon melts all from McD's with a LARGE diet coke.
Now: Breakfast usually consists of a piece of string cheese, 1 egg, and maybe a little cottage cheese if I have room. (And the best thing is, I'm more full on this than I was on the other breakfasts).
Then: I circled parking lots for the Diva parking spot. Fat girls, y'all know what I'm talking about.
Now: I park wherever and don't even worry about the walk to the store taking a toll on me. Now granted I'm not quite able to park at the BACK of the lot yet. Not sure if that is physically unable or psychologically unable. But either way, back of the lot is coming.
And for a few surprises...
I find that if I think about baked goods, my brain goes "oo that sounds goooooood" but as soon as I think about EATING those baked goods my whole body says "Eat it and plan to spend 10 hours on the toilet, beeyotch."
My biggest craving right now? Fruits and veggies. It's not that I can't have these foods, but right now I just don't have enough room in my belly. Once I get my protein in, I can't fit anything else. One of these days I'm going to have a few bites of banana though, dammit.
