My baby stomach: it’s getting better every day, as long as I treat it well. I’d already lost 16 kg (35,3 lbs) in less than 2 months, and it’s been an amazing experience to look for smaller clothes in my wardrobe – you know, I always had to look for bigger ones. Yesterday’s evening I "found" an Indian-style blouse that was never used – I bought it on a whim last year and it never fit really good. Today I wore it to go work – I spent most part of time strutting very confidently in a "look-at-me-I’m-gorgeous-and-hot" way, do you know what I mean? :o)
This surgery is definitely changing my personality. I’m feeling a new person, healthier and happier. I had blood tests last week, the results were great: sugar level was ok as always, but cholesterol and triglycerides levels are finally normal again after being dangerously high for few years. Yay for me!
Changing eating habits has been a good experience. I’d already discovered sugar and fat food will always make me sick, I’d tried eating my mother’s cake and too fatty meat and it wasn’t a pleasant thing. I have to be careful while eating too, just small pieces/portions because bigger ones make me feel really sick. Everything must be eaten slowly, it’s funny because I was always the one able to devour a cookie’s package in front of my computer, a chocolate box in front of TV, not even thinking in what I was doing. I can’t do it anymore, my doctor had told me I shouldn’t eat while doing other activities, I must pay attention in what I’m eating and how I’m doing that.
A good side effect of surgery is that I’m being noticed by men of my age. I was never that popular before, only older guys (really older sometimes ) seemed to notice me before, or at least that’s what I thought. Now it seems I started to be really seen at streets. It’s not so obvious yet, I still don’t look like a supermodel (and I’m not sure I’ll look like one in the future too, LOL), but I feel this change of interest and it makes me feel damn good!

It's been a long time since I felt like that, girl, and it's making me feel more than good, *g*
