Justin and I left the house today. We went and bought his books and walked around Sam's Club and Best Buy with a break in there for lunch. It was so nice to get out. I was much slower than usual but he kept right with me. It felt so good to move and not to sit or lay down. Since my body is still full of gas from the procedure I need to get it off of me because it hurts, so walk walk and more walking gets rid of it. I have seen a big difference today. I probably could of kept shopping, but i started to hurt and my tylenol wasn't going to cut it so we came home. I'm going to take my big pain meds for the first time today and see how that goes. [sleep is in my future]
I am starting to realize how different my appetite is over night. I sat and watched Justin consume french fries (which are perhaps one of my favorite foods) and i had NO cravings. I was perfectly happy with little sips of soup. We walked down aisles of food and no urge to say I want or I need or I'm craving. It was more like yep its food and most of it 98% isn't going in my tummy so i'm over it for lack of a better term that i can think of today.
Life is good. I'm holding steady. Can't wait to see what I loose next week at my post-op appointment!
