I bought a scale today, finally. My brother took me to Target so that I could shop and get some good solid walking in.
A funny aside, my brother was teasing me by calling Target Tar-gay making fun of the way everyone calls it Tar-Jay. My sister corrected him and said, “Tar-JAY!” Then my brother’s four-year old chimed in and said in all earnest, “No, it’s Tar-GET!” We cracked up.
Anyway, I bought a scale. I weighed myself this evening and it looks like I’m down to 273. That’s a total of 25 pounds lost.
Walking is so much easier. I was chucking through Target so quickly, my brother could not keep up. I didn’t have to stop to rest or catch my breath or anything. It was so nice to go to a big store like Target and have to try to figure out where I could rest. I feel completely different. I can hardly believe that I was as sick as I was before the surgery.
Eating is getting a little bit easier. I am still pureeing my food. I have been adding different spices to add flavor. I blended cilantro and garlic in avocado. I guess you would call that guacamole. I blended a red bell pepper with cilantro, garlic, and onion. I put a tiny dollop of that on the avocado. It is so yummy. Tomorrow, I am cooking some chicken breasts with the cilantro and oil. Then I will puree the chicken. I cannot wait until I move on to soft food and away from having to puree everything.
