My fill today was a non-event, because it didn't happen. I have lost 17 pounds in just under a month and I am eating regular foods and working out and feeling fabulous, so the surgeon didn't want to mess with that right now. I'm supposed to see how it goes for the next two weeks and then we'll re-evaluate the situation. I've only been eating solid protein for a few days and I've dropped 3 pounds since Monday, and he even said I might want to bump my calories and protein up a little if I am truly hungry. I had some baked fish and mashed potatoes from Boston Market for lunch today, ate about 3/4 of the fish and half the potatoes, and three hours later, I'm still not hungry. He also said I could add a small handful (about 10) almonds as a snack if I am hungry and I want something salty and crunchy.
I feel good about this.
And here are the answers to Drazil's BYOC questions...just for fun...
1. If you could change your first name - what would it be?
Not applicable. I love my name.
2. Why are man hole covers round?
Ummm...because pie are squared?
3. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
People who drive slow in the fast lane. It also makes me crazy when people get right on my car's back bumper, especially in the rain. Aaaaargh!
4. If you could be a car - what would it be? Post a pic if you can.
A Smart car, because I want to be small and smart. I wouldn't want to DRIVE one, just be one.
5. What's the biggest thing you learned from a blog this week or which blog spoke to you the most this week off the top of your head?
It's not band-specific, but The Anti-Jared's post The King of Slot Machines, which is about being your own weight loss guru, really spoke to me.
