I went with my hubby tonight to pick up some Chinese soup for dinner and as we were driving down US1 I began to notice all of the fast food restaurants with at least 4-5 cars at each window. This should not be surprising to me at all because a few months/weeks ago that was me sitting in the drive through. What it made me think about (surprisingly was not food or hunger), but I actually felt sorry for those people sitting in the drive throughs.
Am I trying to say I will never eat fast food again....NO, but will I ever be a junkie like I was before....HELL NO!!
I felt sorry for the fat person ordering a double cheeseburger or a large milkshake (not realizing what it is doing to their health or realizing and not having the courage or means to get help). I felt bad for the kids that are only used to eating fast food....I just felt bad. So Sad!
This feeling surprised me....I thought I would be salivating....maybe because I am still sore, full from drinking even a sip of water, or scared, but I really had no desire for any of that food!! Let's hope that feeling lasts!
Now Post op- day 4 update!!
I am doing really well. I think I am back down to my pre surgery weight or close! Remember...I gained 10lbs during surgery (water and swellling I'm sure)!
I am still extremely bloated, but not in pain at all. I am not even taking pain meds anymore. I am going to get some tylenol to bring to work with me on Tuesday....just in case!!
I am hoping this bloating is going to go away soon because it is making it really hard to eat/drink my meals. I don't think I'm getting in enough nourishment....
