Life is good.

Hi everyone! Thank you for the wonderful comments that are left for me. The support I have gotten has been overwhelming and I really appreciate it.

I have been enjoying trying to eat some "normal" foods. I haven't have much trouble at all. I did once get a piece of meat stuck uncomfortably, but by stopping eating immediately and breathing through it, I got through it. It took about 30 minutes for the discomfort and pain to pass. I realized that it was my fault, of course. I had been eating while at the computer and wasn't being mindful about my chewing. I hope I don't make that mistake again.

I won't get weighed again until I see my primary care on Dec. 28th, so I don't have a weight update. I do feel a little lighter though, so I hope that I am doing well.

Since I don't have much to report, I thought I would share this wls mantra that I came across in a forum:

The Four Mantras of Life Post WLS:

1. Sip, sip, sip. Need your fluids.
2. Walk, walk, walk. Exercise and prevent blood clots.
3. Any problems - CALL YOUR DOCTOR!! 'nuff said.
4. Never, and I mean NEVER, trust a fart! You may find yourself experiencing a "laundry emergency"!
