I am officially down 20 lbs, and people are starting to notice-which is nice. Jeans are getting looser and its more fun to dress now. I actually have more options in my own closet! Tommorow I am wearing a super cute high waisted purple dress to a family event....and actually looking forward to it! Feeling more comfortable in my own skin sure feels nice again.
My first fill was a little dread inducing. The doc was running behind well over an hour and my nerves were starting to fray thinking about the long needle and someone pushing on my port. Six weeks later and I am finally able to sleep and move around without noticing it. But I still don't like any pressure on it. It's kinda weird carrying a lil piece of hardware in your belly... I feel very protective over my lil alien. Anyhow-the doc finally shows up and has the grace to apologize for his tardiness and we get to the business at hand: the numbing needle had a little sting but the port fill wasn't bad at all. Although sitting up to take a test drink of water with a needle hanging out of my belly was a little disconcerting. The doc recommended a 2 day liquid diet after this first fill-but ya'll-I can't do it! I am in total liquid protein rejection and have managed to eat 2 meals and a snack today-with no problems. Drinking my meals makes me c-r-a-z-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e... Anyhoo-my goal is to lose 6 lbs in the next 6 wks. With Thanksgiving around the bend, that may be a lil tricky... Holiday eating in year's past have been my downfall. So I'm skeptical yet hopeful...!
