Behold!!!! My weightloss progress thus far!!!!
And an update:
Surgery in two days. One day left of work.
The doctor took me off 90% of my pain meds before surgery, to thicken up my blood. This has been a very horrifying time. I've discovered arthritis I never knew I had, and that my pain levels are well beyond what I already believed. It has been the worst trying to get through work with basically no meds, and I am struggling. My bathroom remains a mess, the living room unsorted, my laundry freshly washed sits in a pile waiting to be hung for days, because I find myself even less capable of movement than previous.
What a freaking nightmare. I'm so ready to be post op. I'm soaking in the tub as I write this, with all my energy spent trying to get in. My bathing has become an hour or longer ordeal. What a pain.
But with my new meds and dietary habits, I've lost 40 pounds so far. I'm hoping the loss keeps going, as I'm really proud of my shrinking.
