Post Op Day 10 -- Getting Hungry

I can't believe I'm at post op day 10 and feeling absolutely normal (if there is such a thing)! It feels like I never even had surgery! I've been looking at other before/after pics and I just can't imagine myself having "after" that crazy? It's just inconceivable in my mind at this point. I changed my blog background because I feel like the band will be my wings to this weight loss. I totally understand now why they say the band is just a "tool"'s still hard work and takes alot of critical thinking to make wise decisions. So hopefully it will carry me along in this journey. 

Anyhoo, I'm starting to get hungry. At my 1st post-op visit, they said that's great, a sign of healing.......blah,blah,blah.........but I want a SOLID piece of food in my belly! This pureed crap is just not cutting it anymore! I talked my husband into giving me a teeny weeny piece of chicken yesterday (he was pretty hesitant, but the pouting worked) and it was SO good! I meet with the Dietician on Wednesday and then finally I can move on to "soft foods." I'm thrilled! That appointment can't come soon enough! Until then.......grits, refried beans, yogurt, applesauce, jello, pudding, and creamy soups! 

Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!!


  1. I started to get hungry about the same time you did. I was so glad to move onto soft food but man oh man, it is amazing how "normal" I feel. I have only felt the band like twice when i ate something too dry. Hang in there and we will get through this. I am 25 days post op.

  2. You're so good if you waited this long to beg solid food from the hubby. I'm pretty sure I was within the first week when I was asking for "just a nibble" of stuff :)

  3. Everything sounds about right, and your blog background is beautiful! I need to sit down and redo mine ones of these days! :)
