It was Chris' birthday yesterday (which he spent taking care of ME and I obviously had no time this week to do anything special for him) so about 15 people came over last night, bearing gifts for him and stayed past midnight, laughing and chatting (and dancing a little!). It was great- made us smile so much our cheeks hurt.
I decided to weigh myself, just to get a baseline and see how I was doing... Between starving for a couple days, getting tons of IV fluids (sugar, salt drips, medications) and blood transfusions, then being forced towards a more carb-heavy diet (and eating grains and dairy because otherwise I'd be eating only sweet potatoes and poultry!)... I was worried.
BUT, I am the same weight as when I went into the hospital: 122.8!!
So hopefully I won't have too much work to do when I get back on track next Friday :)
I do feel bloated from the extra carbs and sugar, but I can deal with it for a week.
Still trying to be gluten free even though I'm adding some grains back for a week- the cream of rice was very good!! I put some honey in it :)
Going to attempt a walk with Chris and Koda today, I have no exercise restrictions (I didn't walk yesterday because I was exhausted, but I feel so much more energetic today!).
Good Health, my friends <3
