1 month post-op and other stuff

Well, here I am at 1 month out today. For the most part, I feel great! I have my days that I feel like junk, but those are becoming fewer and farther between. So far I have lost 42.5 lbs! I can't believe I have dropped that much in only 1 month. I should really start trying on jeans that are the next size down, but honestly, I'm a bit afraid. What if they don't fit yet? But, the jeans I am wearing now require a belt and they still nearly fall off.

I have finally been cleared to go back to the gym. I am excited about that. Oh, and the Nut said that I am getting in enough protein from food, so I don't have to drink the shakes anymore. HOORAY! I still am not able to eat much at all. Maybe 3-4oz at a time, so I try and make it all dense protein. I haven't really found anything that my stomach can't handle. I have even tried salad. My new favorite snack is grapes though. I can't seem to get enough of them.

I am still of course missing Mr. I like crazy! We talk on a pretty regular basis, which helps, but I can't wait to have him home! I am so ready for September! He seems to be doing well though.

Meta is doing great according to my mom. Although, she thinks he may have pink eye. She went in to get him out of bed this morning and one of his eyes was all goopy and shut. He said "I can't see. My eye closed. Arr, I a pirate." I cracked up when she told me that. I can't wait to see him again. It will be so nice to be in Colorado for Easter.

So, that's my 1 month in a nutshell. It is crazy how fast time has flown by already. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me and my new tummy!
