I am alive an well and not hovering over a sink. I saw my doc at 3:30 on Wednesday and he removed 0.15 cc from my band, a few drops. I can drink ok and also had chili last night for dinner AND a bowl of frozen yogourt. No pain, no stucks, no yakking (thanks Maria for that term).
Today I have been able to finish a yogourt and am now eating some paté and crackers. So far so good but I am full after about 1 ounce. I think I am still a bit swollen so will stick to soft and mushies for another day. If I still can't eat solids I will call the surgical clinic next week in Mississauga since I will be visiting Hamilton for a few days. We are also planning to take a short trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake, the center of wine making and wine tasting in Southern Ontario.
Just wanted to mention, I updated the section on "sliming" from yesterday's post to mention something Tina brought up. You don't have to be "stuck" to slime or PB but it is just as gross. And Caroline left some other great suggestions so please read her comment.
Lastly, I will announce that I am now 174.6 pounds. My DH weighs 173 lbs so I am almost smaller than him. Next month for sure! I also changed my goal weight to 154 which is much more realistic. I think it is a reasonable weight and if I go lower it is just icing on the cake (ok guys, we need a new expression). I will post some pictures and measurements next week after my vacation. I promise.
