-3.5 lb Loss
Everyday I feel stronger and in less pain from my incisions. I am able to walk 40 minutes without any discomfort. The weather has been beautiful. Next week I plan to add a little Wii Fit to the mixture, mainly the step routine.
My diet may now include unsweetened applesauce, greek yogurts and cottage cheese. So far I have not experienced any problems eating any of them, other than a little tightening as it goes down. The feeling reminds me of the soreness I would experience when I add fill during my lap-band days so I credit the pain to swelling. As I am allowed to add foods to my diet I am being cautious not to add fake food. For instance, SF pudding is allowed right now, but there is no nutritional value to add it to my diet. I never ate it before, why should I add this fake food now? I will add items when it is allowed in its natural form. I did buy the applesauce initially, but going forward I will make my own.
I am getting in my 64ox of water now without much difficulty.
I discontinued my blood pressure meds since I arrived home from surgery. Each morning I note my monitor readings, if it goes up, I will try 1/2 pill, but so far it has been stable.
My granddaughters will be visiting today and staying for the weekend. I am looking forward to enjoying this gorgeous spring weather with them. The rest of week seem uneventful, I don't expect any challenges with my very limited diet.
