First Workout & Telling
In other news, I've been debating telling my sister about the band. I know we've all had the conversations, blogs, feedback about telling and how it's really up to the individual and what they feel comfortable with, yadda, yadda, yadda. I knew I wasn't going to tell her before the surgery because she would be super judgmental and I wasn't looking for negativity while I was preparing for surgery. That being said, I always figured I'd tell her after I had it done and she couldn't try to talk me out of it. I figured if she wanted to get the negativity off her chest, she could talk to my mom since she already knows and didn't want me to do it either. Now that I've actually had the surgery, I'm finding it difficult to tell my sister. Not because of reaction but of a graceful way of turning the conversation towards the subject. So the question for today is...
How did you tell someone about the band after you already had it done?
I'm sticking to the whole liquid thing pretty well. So tired of it though. I have one more week of this stuff. My doc is a little more strict than others I think when it comes to this. Next week I get to move on to mushies but I only have to do mushies for 1 week as opposed to 2 like some people. I guess it all works out in the end...instead of 2 weeks liquids/2 weeks mushies, I get 3 weeks liquids/1 week mushies but whatever. One more week won't kill me...maybe. What I do find kinda annoying is that I haven't lost any weight in the last 3 days. I don't know how this can be possible since I'm barely eating anything. I know I'm not getting enough protein in. I HATE protein shakes. If they all don't taste awful right away, they all leave a nasty after taste in your mouth. BLAH. So that's probably part of the problem. I also know that I shouldn't be worried about weight loss right now as it's all about healing, blah, blah, blah. I'm not really worried about it but my curiosity gets the better of me and I want to know what's going on with the scale. OK...I'm a scale whore and must get on it every day. There...I admitted it. Hope y'all are happy now.
I guess that's about it. Not too much going on one way or another. Recovery is going swimmingly. No pain at all unless I'm walking on the damn treadmill. I hope everyone's week is going OK. Can't believe it's September already. This year is just flying by. Happy Hump Day!
