Till I can work out! Oh and three weeks since my operation, too!
I'm doing well, sorry I haven't updated much. Not a ton to say, I'm healing up pretty nicely, I'm a bit less swollen, and I feel totally fine and pain free.
My incision isn't completely healed which is a slight concern, but apparently somewhat normal with us semi-protein-deficient bandsters. It's not great, but I'm hoping it's getting better, it's hard to tell from the outside as this kind of wound heals from the inside out.
I'm struggling a bit with having absolutely NO restriction and not being able to exercise. I haven't really gained weight, I was at 155lbs this morning, which is where I've been forever. I know it'll come off when I start exercising and getting fills again, so it's not the results I'm concerned about, just the process.
I just LOVE to exercise (who is this girl!? what did she do with old Angie?!) and miss it. I miss feeling physically tired. I miss feeling the great endorphin rush after a spin class. I miss feeling accomplished when I master a hard dance routine. I MISS EXERCISE!
I also miss having a lap-band. I am not good at le dieting. I know I could count calories or protein grams but that has never made me feel good about myself, my process, or to be perfectly honest, worked. I am not gaining, I'm not losing, and other than feeling lazy, I'm fine. I just want the next three weeks to pass quickly. Back to Vermont on Friday, classes Monday... Hopefully it won't feel too long!
