...maybe having my gallbladder out wasn't such a bad thing! My body is still adjusting to life without my gallbladder and I am in no way telling anyone to request that their gallbladder be removed (just wanted to put that upfront - because really it does appear to be life-altering even if we don't really need it to survive)!
This week has been a battle of ups and downs three weeks post surgery and I am still recovering, definitely! I went home from work sick one day and went to bed by 6:30PM that night because I felt so sick...other than that, it was a week of adjustments to life without a gallbladder and at least for me that meant self-regulating what I ate and really thinking about what I consumed! Foods with too much sugar meant I was sick, foods that were high in fat meant I was sick, and foods that were spicy meant I was sick so that pretty much outlawed all my favorite foods and left me munching on crackers most of the week!
Okay, so that's not how I want to live life, but I'll look at the positive side of things! I am 3lbs closer to my goal weight and I still can't exercise much due to me heart and no lifting anything greater than 15lbs for another three weeks from surgery! Being kind of stuck in a do nothing rut...I'm happy with 3lbs...who wouldn't be?! So where do I stand this week?
Since the list was getting long, I'm going to start posting a link to the long list and just include the previous week and this week's weigh-in every Monday! (Long list June 21st (203.5 lbs) - September 13th (194 lbs))
Last weigh-in: September 13th/September 26th - 194lbs, Size 14
Today: October 4th - 191 lbs and I can honestly say that my Size 14 jeans are starting to fit looser although I can't button the top button due to healing sutures from surgery
As I've said every week though, regardless of my current weight and how I feel right now, I am still hoping that by next June, I will still be able to reach my goal of being able to keep up with my kids and husband and wear the red dress that hangs prominently in my closest (it blocks all my pants) so I have to look at it every day....it will continue to be my motivation - even if this week I couldn't do much more than hang out at the computer and slowly walk outside to watch the kids play!
