No more liquids woot!!!!

Went to the dietician today. My sister was going to drive me but her car wouldn't start. What is it with me and cars this week! Day of surgery the car broke down, now this! So I ended up driving myself.
Checked the scales, I've lost 9 kilos in 3 weeks! I'm very happy with that! Now just need that one kilo to break the 10 kilo weight loss! I weighed myself at home too so I know the difference with the homes ones compared to Drs ones.
When I went in to see my dietician she said "come in enlarged liver girl!". lol. I have to laugh. All the things that went wrong! Apparently I am a special case. Which makes me feel awesome! lol. We discussed if I was hungry (yes), if I was tolerating all the liquids (yes) and if I was ready to move on (YES YES YES!!) So we talked about how to progress onto the mushies, then to "normal" food. I booked my appointment with my Dr for first fill yesterday, its 3 weeks from surgery date which is a week earlier than normal but dietician says I should be ready. It was the first time I've heard a dietician say "i want you to try as much food as possible!!" I have a week and a half to be able to eat normally.
Libsmom- my dr and dietician are relaxed with the eating rules yes. I have heard of some people needing to be on liquids for 4 weeks! The reason that my dr says its ok to move on sooner is because he noticed that people kept complaining about being hungry.
Mjwdec73- its a deal. We'll slap each other!!!!
So on way home stop off and got some KFC potato and gravy. To be honest with you, I didn't like it at all. It was nothing. Much rather my own mashed potato.
Tonight I'm making Shepard's Pie. Tomorrow I'm off to buy food. I am swimming in soups at home but no need for anymore!

-skinny biddy :0)

Yay - congratulations on no more liquids. I love that they want us to eat as normally as possible.

I know what you mean about the KFC - I think I had something implanted that makes me dislike takeaway. So good.

UGH! I am SO jealous!! But happy for you. I splurged today and had some very finely minced chicken salad. It was fine and well tolerated. I am SO HUNGRY!!! I think your doctor is on the right track.
I go tomorrow for my first post op appointment.
Please convert, for the dumb american how much weight you've lost in pounds please :)
