Well, the wisdom teeth removal was a success on Friday. I kept waking up during the procedure, so I was pumped a ton of drugs. Good thing is, I never felt a thing and that lead to them giving me a good Rx combination to get me through the recovery weekend. Woo Hoo!
Since I didn't have my occupational therapist appointment on Friday, I decided to have an unofficial weigh in at home pre-surgery. I weighed in at 328.8, which was an unofficial loss of 3.2 lbs! Another big Woo Hoo!
The husband, mom, sister and I have had some bets going to see how much weight I would lose while I recovered and was forced to a diet of liquids and soft foods. So far, I am down another 7.5lbs from Friday's pre-surgery weight. It would be a dream come true to go back to occupational therapist on Friday for my official weigh in and have skipped the 320's all together. I am curious to see if I gain back that week I am back to eating a normal, healthy diet, or would I still lose?
Eating has been boring: applesauce, broth, oatmeal, grits, frozen yogurt, pudding and baked/mashed yams. I am so hungry for some real food, you have no idea. I just have this urge to chew something! Not sure how much longer my mouth will be sore and when I can start eating solids again. I hope not too much longer. Apparently, I am a bear at home when I don't have proper nutrition. LOL!
I did some baking yesterday, which was safe, since I can't eat those delicious creations. I tried out the Pina Colada Cupcakes recipe from Gina's Skinny Recipes. They were a big hit with my skeptical mom and sister. They think anything "diet" is disgusting and not worth the effort. I was on a quest to prove them wrong and boy did I pick the right recipe to get them to open their minds up a little more. Little by little I will get them to realize that healthy eating is not "diet and gross", but delicious and gives you an extra pep in your step.
I hope all is well with everyone!
