All day today I was changing my mind about going out with friends-- yes-- no--yes-no...
I had a rough night last night -- -gas pains-- - and I just wasn't sure I wanted to have to worry about going out for dinner and what to eat at said dinner. I am 5 days Post op- so I am still in the Full-Fluid stage of my post op diet....
Finally a half an hour before we were planning on going I set my mind to it-- I got this band so that I can change my lifestyle and change my outlook, change it so that my weight is not something that keeps me from being social and doing things I enjoy. The last thing I want is to start using my band as the excuse not to so things! So instead of not going- I had half a yogurt drink before I left-- and took one to go- just in case---
We had planned on going to the pumpkin patch and corn maze-- but we got rained out- instead we went to Boston Pizza for dinner--- I ended up ordering the soup, chicken noodle (boo) and a smoothie-- and it was just fine! No one made a fuss-- no one cared that all I ate was soup and a smoothie (and half of both I must note) Man I would have loved to have a bite of the garlic bread-- but I dared not to!!
It was so great getting out to socialize with friends-- it was just what I needed!
My port incision is aching a bit- first time I have worn jeans since my surgery- Ouch!! But it was worth it!
Anyway- feeling better tonight-- the walking I did today I am sure will help keep the gas monsters away tonight!! (fingers crossed!)
Hope everyone out there had a great Wednesday-- :o)
Till next time!
