See bariatrics and my previous daylog for details. Today is my first day back at work. I had lost 23 pounds one week after the surgery. I can now start eating things like yogurt(artificially sweetened) and scrambled eggs. Soft, low fat cheeses are also permitted. Refried beans are okay. Sugar is a definite no-no. If I were to take a bite of something sweetened with sugar, it would rapidly pass through my system into my small intestine, causing my insulin glands to go into overdrive and drop my blood sugar level to zero. It's called "dumping," and apparently it sucks. I might even pass out. I'm pretty cautious about that one. I move slow. I have occasional sharp pains on the incisions when I bend over or move akwardly, so I look like an old man moving right now. But I'm happy with how things are going so far.
