So here's the breakdown :
When I returned from the cruise my band was wide open and I went on a straight liquid diet (post op diet) for 5 days and dropped 5 before my fill that Thursday.
The Sunday after my fill, I started following the body for life nutrition and fitness guidelines and have lost 9 lbs in my first week and a half! The first week or two of any new program is always great. so now I have to keep it up!
My parents are in town visiting and I'm so glad to have them. Tonight we had a ceviche salad, broiled grouper and a little roasted cauliflower all within our fist/palm sized portions.
On a completely separate note, I have a really awful story to share. It's just bothering me so much that I need to vent for a second. Have you all heard about this ex-football player in Michigan that went missing this weekend and was found dead last night? I just found out today that he was married to my old roommate and very good college friend. We were really great friends for a while and spent time at each other's families houses and became roommates my sophomore or junior year. She had some personal struggles and transferred schools and we lost touch. I chose not to keep in touch because of some stuff that had happened right before the transfer. There was too much drama for me. But she was happily married with 2 very small children and now she has lost her husband in such a tragic way. My stomach is in knots just thinking about it. If you can please send a quick prayer her way :(
