I figured at a month after surgery I should have my Steri Strips off, a couple fell off on their own but the others? they were hanging on for dear life.
I got brave and GENTLY pulled them off last night.
My incisions...are fabulous! I've had other surgeries and I'm a good healer, but Dr. C must also be a Plastic Surgeon, I had a hard time actually seeing the incisions and when I showed my husband he had the same reaction.
Rock on Dr. C!
I went to an event for work last night, thankfully they had a semi-healthy table with fruit, cheese and crackers. On the other side though, it was temptation galore with lots of breads and sweets.
I didn't trust myself to go anywhere near that area.
I did have 4 teeny tiny bites of pecan pie, just enough to kill the craving and make me feel guilty.
I can now tell that I have no restriction, I can eat as much as I want but I have been very good. I have no problem chugging water, and I can eat more than one cup of soup where a couple of weeks ago that was not an option.
So I know I have to be very good, and really watch what passes through my lips.
Seeing the numbers drop on the scale is a big motivation for me, so I need to keep it up and as much as some say it's a bad idea, I will keep weighing every day.
That works for me, it keeps me in check and motivates me to keep making good choices.
I plan on getting some walking in this weekend, the low energy thing has kept me from doing much at all, but I started being diligent about taking my Vitamins and Protein shakes.
Hopefully it won't be 300 degrees in the shade this weekend...ha!
