I don't really have much to say. Scale is being a cow and hasn't moved in 2 days. I suspect it will before the weekend. Or, I could be up for the dreaded 3rd week stall. Time will tell. I'm still happy at how much I've lost thus far :)
Something I've observed about this journey is that I actually think about food MORE now than I did before. In a different way though. I think about what I'm going to be able to eat at each phase, if I'll be able to get down more than a couple spoonfuls this next time. I think about being mindful of not drinking while eating. And I think about drinking my water, ALL THE TIME. I feel like I should have a camelback attached to me at work so I can get all the liquid in me that I need to each day. I am wary to move onto full solids although as of today I can. I've had a few things that I've chewed the crap out of and had it sit in my sleeve like a rock. It's very painful and unfun. I know that there's still swelling going down and it will improve over time, but of course, I'm impatient.
I tried the Chike brand of meal replacement today. Meh. It was ok. It is very flavourful, maybe TOO flavourful actually. I had the orange cream one and it tasted kind of fake. Took me all morning of sipping on it to get the whole thing down.
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
