Guess I'm healed... Good, right??

Inside and out, I think I'm healed up pretty well by now.

The incision finally closed up all the way, so that's good! Now if the weather will clear up, I can take my girls swimming finally. I have two tankinis that I bought last year without trying them on that did not fit at ALL then, but do now, so that'll be great to have something cute to wear instead of my tired old suit that I wore through two pregnancies and then some. :D

Inside, it seems that my stomach is healed up too, because I am HUNGRY. And 1 to 1.5 cups is NOT doing it anymore. I ate way too much yesterday. Nothing I shouldn't have eaten, but way more than I should have. This does not bode well for leaving on a road trip in a couple of days. I have to think of some things to snack on that will help tide me over so I don't cave in to road food temptation. I do OK when I'm at home, I don't keep snack food in the house at all. But on the road, and while we're in Chicago?? I hope I can do this. I don't want to go in for my fill and have completely sabotaged myself out of the 9 pounds I've lost since surgery.

Speaking of that, it seems that I'm going to have to call and reschedule that first fill visit. I just don't see how I'm going to be able to get myself back to Texas in time for a visit on July 21, when I won't be leaving there until July 19. I could do it, but I don't want to put myself or the kids through a super-intense return drive. I don't know.... maybe I'll wait and see how things go by the 19th. I am SO ready to try to get some restriction!!!
