So I'm still in the recovery mode but am definitely feeling much better following gallbladder surgery! It's still a little touch and go when it comes to food but I am definitely able to eat again just still figuring out what foods bother me! I have been amazed how many people that I've talked to have had theirs removed too...there is always a little bonding with those that are missing an organ I guess! I don't know if that is such a great thing, but at least I haven't gained weight! I haven't lost weight either, but can't lift anything over 15 pounds for two and a half more weeks and my heart has been bothering me so I'm okay with just holding steady 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! Buttoning isn't an issue over sutures anymore but I am happy that my jeans are loose enough to pull down around my hips so they don't bother the sutures all day!
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! I get tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often! I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!
