Feeling like nothing ever happened!

9 days since surgery have passed and I am feeling really good, I have no pain, no discomfort, no restrictions.

I can feel my port which is a little weird because I expected it to be located much deeper. I guess I will get used to it and will not feel it after a while. My incisions are healing good. I am not hungry any more and have to force myself to drink enough liquids.

My first post surgery check-up is on Tuesday.

Today I was cleaning the house, I am still re-organizing my closet and I expect it to be completed within a couple of days. I did not even know that I have so many clothes in so many different sizes (1XL to 3XL)... I guess I do not need to buy anything for some time :-)

The most amazing thing that happened today was right after I took my shower... I can see that I am losing weight!!!!! Yes, I can see it!!! *hurrray* *jumparound* *smilefromeartoear*. Okay, I can only see it on my feet and in my face. It is fascinating.... my feet are looking less "heavy" and I can see facial lines (not wrinkles) in my face, that I have not seen in a very long time. It is sooo exciting. These are the little (for me big) things that really motivate me and that is the reason why really have to share it with you.

While cleaning the house I found empty glasses, mugs, cups, etc. all over and put them in the dishwasher. I had to laugh a lot because this dishwasher has never seen so many used drinking containers ever. So I had to take a picture... to remind my self of what a liquid diet looks like ;-)


  1. You are a very courageous woman. I'll follow you through this new life of yours that just begun.

  2. Caro, Thank you for your kind words :-)

    Less LeLe, 4 more days to go... looking forward to the mushy food :-)

  3. Just found your blog, am going through the weight loss journey myself (but without lapband-insurance denied me) and am also donating money for pounds loss. Interesting charity choice, I've worked with them before. All the best to you!

  4. Hi there, I am a fellow September bandster, found you on LBT!

    You have a very cool looking dishwasher. Miele or Asko or Bosch? (Back before I obsessed about losing weight, I obsessed about renovating my kitchen, lol)
