My official weigh in was this morning-- 279 lbs. --that means I lost 4.5 lbs this past week. I am down 13.5 lbs! Not bad for two weeks! However, now begins the "Bandster Hell" that I keep hearing about--where the inflammation from the surgery decreases, and since the band isn't restricted, basically you can get anything down that will fit through the stoma which because of no restriction isn't a big deal. Thankfully, I do tend to get full, though not as quickly as last week. The other good thing is, I tend to stay full longer. I can go for several hours without a meal so that's worked out quite nicely--no snacking. :-) I'm not looking for food at 10am.
Speaking of food, we went to BJ's Brewhouse last night. I found a great choice for anyone who is in the soft-food stage: spinach stuffed mushrooms on the Appetizer menu. 8 nicely sized mushrooms and 320 calories. I did get a bowl of Broccoli Cheese soup, but didn't eat even half of it. Thank goodness, because it was very high in calories, I found out later. Too much cheese and it was wayyy too thick. It was more like Broccoli Cheese casserole. Ick. Anyway, if you have a BJ's, there you have it. Mushrooms. :-) You're welcome. LOL
I bought some Asics through Zappo's and they don't fit, width-wise. I am tempted to keep them as I know they will eventually fit me. They are really comfortable, just too snug I'm afraid. I need to order a new pair, because I haven't been able to do any walking, and that really has been the only thing standing in my way. When I get to Onederland (for those who do not know, that means under 200 lbs), I am going to attempt Couch to 5K. That should be interesting!
We are supposed to go to Houston this weekend, but Phoebe has a fever. She's laid up on the sofa right now....we'll see what happens tomorrow morning.
