Weight lost since surgery: 40 pounds
Weight lost since highest pre-surgery: 63 pounds
More important than those numbers, my mood is much, much better. (Unsurprisingly, as soon as I started losing weight again, I stopped being depressed.) I've (sort of) dealt with hunger issue by drinking nonstop water. We're supposed to get 64 ounces a day, but I just keep on going. It's good for you and it helps with the hunger.
I had a funny experience last week: I still wear a watch, and it's a kind where the band doesn't stretch. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how the band had stretched when it's impossible that the material could have. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize my wrist must have gotten thinner...
I stopped counting calories, both because it was diving me crazy and making me miserable (focusing on all the things I can't have). So long as I keep losing weight, I'll keep ignoring them.
Your tastes change after surgery, and sadly almost nothing tastes good to me anymore. The one exception is apples. I would marry an apple if I could. They're crunchy and sweet and I wish I could eat them all day. Sadly I'm only supposed to have a tablespoon of non-protein food per meal, which isn't a lot of apple at all. I've been cheating an awful lot and eating more apple than I should. Sometimes I have a whole apple in a day! (Isn't that funny? "Cheating" by eating an apple?)
Two more wacky books/covers, though they have no theme. Much WTFness, but no theme.
Those are real books!
