It's been a while since my last post, so I definitely wanted to update you all on what's been going on. I finally bought a scale. It was really nice tempered glass scale... only $13.99 plus tax from Ross. It was lovely.... but it didn't work. LOL. So I had to go to Target and spend $24.99 plus tax on a new scale. It works fine, and can store up to 15 weights in its memory so I can track my weightloss... but it's not as pretty. :o)
I made it through the holidays okay and was able to maintain my weight well. I'm hovering right around 300 lbs. now. I haven't been working out like I should, so I'm okay with this hovering weight phase. I was cleared to exericise at my December 13 post-op appointment, but didn't make out to the gym until the next week. Then I caught my mom's cold and going to the gym just wasn't happening.
This week, I was ready to start my workout regimen. Sunday night while tidying up around the house, I started to experience some pain in my abdomen. I laid down and watched a movie, but when it was time for bed, I had trouble going to sleep because I couldn't get comfortable. The next morning, I was sore, but okay. Throughout the day when I would get up at work, I would experience the pain, but it was still bearable.
On my walk back to the parking garage, the pain began to be debilitating. I was stopping at every block, trying to comfort myself through the pain. I texted my sister to see if she experienced the same pains, which she had. Then I called my doctor's office to speak to the nurse. Apparently, you can experience bad adominal pain when you overexert yourself before your port truly settles. I'm feeling better today, and hopefully, it'll be uphill from here.
I'm looking forward to next month when I can schedule an appointment for my first fill. Right now, I'm still able to eat just about anything, I just feel fuller more quickly. Once I get a fill, the true restriction kicks in, and I won't be able to eat as much and will stay full longer. #cantwait
Happy New Year to you all... and thanks for taking this journey with me! #untilnexttime
