I have a confession to make.....

protein shakes have become vile, discusting fluids that I am finding harder and harder to choke down. And, this morning was the first one I made myself drink in almost a week. slapping my hand. I just told my fellow band sister she has to drink her shakes, and here I am slaking royaly. I will do better this week. I will have two a day; moving on.

I have posted some pics from the day of my surgery. I can't believe it's almost been a week. Wednesday will be my weigh-in day and I am excited to post official numbers and lost since surgery. Recovery has been pretty smooth and I am back at the office today. I love my career and the people I work with; I missed it while I was out.

Waiting to go to surgery; the hat was no fashion statement!

cuties :)

When my husband first came back in recovery; I was sleeeeeping like a baby.

still sleeeeeeping.

2 of my 3 incisions; the other is in the belly button. ewee.

As for a NSV, this morning I fit into pants I outgrew about 5 - 6 months ago. They are my favorite Old Navy pants in the world and also a corporate work shirt I was never able to fit into! Can't wait to weigh-in this week for official numbers.

loving this!

One more thing, someone said I was loosing weight already this morning. That made my day! 


  1. I've been the same way. The protein shakes are not as good as they used to be. But I've gotta start drinking them again! Ugh :(

  2. I have grown to hate protein shakes as well. As far as I'm concerned, if I ever have another one, it will be too soon! I can still stomach carnation instant breakfast so that's what I go to when I have to have liquids.

  3. I am SO OVER protein shakes! I really can't wait for mushies - even though I am not hungry and don't actually want anything, I can change things up a little bit!

  4. That's great you are getting compliments already. Congrats.

  5. Thanks for sharing the photos - the socks complete them! You look terrific in that last one!!

    I have been drinking shakes from a company called Advocare - they're very good, especially the chocolate and vanilla. Strawberry has a strange kind of taste tho. I add a scoop of protein powder that I get at GNC - the added powder thickens them up, too!

    Glad you're feeling good!!
