Weekly Thoughts #31

It’s been a couple of weeks since I did a post like this and not much has changed. As far as my post-op journey it has definitely evolved. I no longer feel any pain in my body. I can eat more foods than just seafood.

On to other things. Model Dreams I really want to post more pictures but I can’t fit anything in my closet. My skinny jogger jeans are now baggy on me. I have never felt so happy to not be able to fit any of my clothes. I would go out and purchase clothes but at the rate, I’m going it’s really no point. I buy some clothes and can’t fit it next month is really no point. Plus I’m not balling like that.

So close to finishing this little project as well as trying to blog more. I’m almost done with this writing challenge and I’m thinking of doing another or just doing writing prompts every day. I need a mandatory post plus another. Still thinking about it.

My blogs Birthday is on the 15th of this month and I’m excited. Excited that I lasted this long. I honestly didn’t miss that many days if any on my journey to blogging every day. If I did I think I made up for it. Blogging is still something new to me so I’m still learning as I go along.

That’s it for this post. View my previous posts until tomorrow. Check out some of my poems and make sure you follow me on IG @k.exum. Subscribe to my mailing list for more updates.

Weekly Thoughts #30

Week 3 post op felt like it was never going to end. When it did I was anxious to know if I was going to be able to eat again. I finally got the news that I can eat again but only seafood, eggs, and cheese. Not the best menu but it’s better than drinking liquids all the time.

My first piece of food was cheese and it was delicious. I ate that like it was some steak or something. Later on, I ate salmon. I cut a small square and I took about 4 bites. I chewed it up real good I thought and was ready to vomit. I think because I didn’t eat like I was told to do so. But I thought because it was so small I could get away with it.

Am I regretting this decision? Not really, it’s just a lot to get used to. I’m taking it slowly but I don’t know. I’m seeing numbers drop but I’m not really apart of it. I get to go back to the gym so I guess I will feel some satisfaction when those numbers drop.

On the other hand, I went on what felt like a quick road trip. To North Carolina than right back to Maryland on the same day. I went to see my baby cousin graduate from high school.

I sorta miss the road trips down there with my family. Reminds me of the good old days before all the depression arrived. That was how my week went. Let me know how yours went in the comments below.

Weekly Thoughts #29

I have heard that after the surgery you won’t have an appetite for food. Boy was they wrong. I’m hungry as hell. I have 1 more week of this liquid diet and I am craving some food. Especially with all the weekend festivities going on around me. I’m missing food every minute.

On the other hand, I’m down to 380 and it feels amazing. Finally out the 4s. I’m officially 35 pounds down since I started this liquid diet. If I thought of this before my date I would have stuck to this. But then I probably would have gone back up. Truthfully I needed the restriction the sleeve brings. Knowing I can’t eat over a certain amount keeps my weight down.

Blog-wise, I’m planning to post some more stories. Currently getting a story edited. This story is part of a story I posted some time last year. I’ll probably repost that story. Then do the second part on a later date. I want it to be a series of stories.

Stories are not my strongest ability anymore. I just have a harder time getting in that zone because I’m just so used to writing poetry. I’ll get my mojo back at some point in time hopefully.

I’m currently doing my Instagrams over so my page is really inactive. I plan on posting the blog pictures and poetry quotes on @Piecesofkblog. As for my main page, I’m still stuck a little on what I want to post. I kinda want it to be more of my life and videos of me reciting. I guess I’m just over the quotes on my page. But I do like some other people format of posting. I don’t really know still thinking. Anyways follow my main page anyways. @k.exum.

I’m just rambling though. Also, thank you for your likes and comments. I love getting feedback so leave comments below. I’m still really fresh on the blogging thing but I try my best to keep posting. Let me know what I can improve on. That’s it for this Weekly Thoughts. View my previous posts until tomorrow. Follow me on all social media platforms.

Weekly Thoughts #28

I did it. I finally had my surgery. If you been reading and following then you’ll would know that this has been in the works for a couple of years. I went in for surgery on Wednesday. The surgery lasted 4 hours but for me it felt like I blinked and it was over.

The anesthesiologist put a mask on me and told me to breathe in and out. After 3 breaths he said he was going to put medicine in it. That was the last thing I remember before I was out. I woke up in recovery confused. I knew it was done because of how sore I was.

Now it has been 2 days since and it doesn’t seem real that I finally got it done. I can admit that my stomach is so sore physically. I can do limited moves around the house but working out is out the picture for awhile. Of course my liquid diet stays on for another couple of weeks.

Other than that I have been really happy lately. I haven’t felt depressed all month. Maybe this operation cured something already. But that’s it for this Weekly Thoughts. See you next week with another post like this. For now view my previous posts until tomorrow. Like, comment and subscribe to my mailing list.

Weekly Thoughts #27

This week wasn’t so rough. I think I was so cranky because I was hungry. Now not so much. I came close last week to cheating but I couldn’t bring myself to do that to myself. Without working out I have lost quite a bit of weight.

I lost 3 pounds this week. 13 altogether since starting the liquid diet. I think once my body got used to drinking instead of eating. It got easier. I’m literally 3 days away from my operation and it’s crazy.

The nerves are there but not really. I’m not scared of the operation. I’m scared of something going wrong doing the healing. There are side effects. Like I can cause some type of leak that can kill me. I got 3 more weeks of liquid and healing after it. So I’m a little scared for that.

I know I been talking about this a lot but it’s the only thing on my mind. For now, view my other posts on different subjects if you’re not into this. Subscribe to my mailing list and follow my blog Instagram for updates. @piecesofkblog
