Day 11: A New Week

So I went to the doctors for my follow up on January 28, 2011 and everything went well.  I am healing properly and am ready to move on to pureed/soft foods.  I have itching around my wound area which is normal and just waiting to see the bandages fall off.  I am able to start working out so I am going to start with walking and doing some biking.  I am also going to take this week to rest up before I go back to work next week.  The foods I am starting to try are refried beans, bananas, canned tuna, light mayo, mashed potatoes.  I will be adding new foods every day to get a variety of foods.  I have to start with my protein first and then I can have veggies and fruits.  I make sure to take my vitamins and supplement everyday as well.  I need to try to get more water in.  I have started getting heartburn the last 2 days and it has made my nights and days rough so I called the doctor to see what they would like for me to do.  I have taken some Tums but with no relief.  So we will wait and see what they say.  I currently have lost 28 lbs since starting this journey back on January 6, 2011.  I am so pleased with the results.  I look forward to seeing where this journey takes me.  My family is so proud of me and is happy to see the changes that are happening already.  I love each and every one of my supporters.  Till next time!
