16days Post-Op -33lb
The numbers on the scale haven’t moved too much lately but I had a couple of NSV’s (Non-Scale Victories). Today, I notice my face is looking different in pictures. I was feeling pretty today as I headed out for a coffee this morning and realized that I could be better at taking photos for this blog. So I snapped this one of my face and my rather annoyed dog, Bruiser. He seems unimpressed with my progress however I can see big changes in my chin and cheekbones.
It’s quite strange now since being so open about the procedure I can feel eyes on me when I walk in a room of people I know. I’m sure you get used to feeling people size you up or perhaps some of it is in your head but I literally observed an acquaintance give me the elevator eyes today.
My second NSV today was eating a meal out, my very first one! There is a cafe in my neighbourhood called The Black Walnut and they have the most delectable food available. There isn’t much I can stomach right now but I’ve officially entered the purée soft food stage and eggs are now an option. So I ordered a piece of crustless frittata, sectioned a piece of it onto a saucer and even managed to wait and drink my cappuccino in the suggested time and before it was ice cold. I felt somewhat normal even though most of it came home with me in a to go box.
It was a lovely day and I can’t wait for more like these!
