I spent the weekend in Knoxville with my cousin and his family. I had intended to tell them about the surgery, but the topic just never came up.
Like it would have been awkward and a very pointed, "I need to tell you about my surgery..." moment and I just didn't feel like I needed to do that. Even still...things went really well in the food department. I was able to eat regular food and small amounts. I spent a lot of time chasing kids, at the pool, hiking in the Smoky Mountains, etc. so staying on track wasn't so much of an issue.
As of today I have 7 pounds to drop before June 9th. I think I can do it. My first fill is going to be June 7th and its a liquid diet for a day so that will actually really help. lol.
I did go for a long walk with the kids this morning even though I *really* didn't want to. Thats one of the worst parts of all this...I know to succeed I have to make exercise part of my life...and I'm resisting at every turn.
Must get over that hurdle...
