So my honeymoon phase is over...I am now hungry..damn! I thought I could ride this out my whole 6 weeks until first fill.....no such luck. I have been really watching what I eat because as you have all told me...here comes the will power because the band won't help you much right now.
I have been logging into myfitnesspal ---jennxaz not sure how to link any people to it
It makes me more accountable so that I can watch my calories...so easy to let those creep up.
I was watching dr. oz and how we all eat hidden calories that we don't think count but add up quickly.
A lick from the bowl of brownies or cookies we are making...the last crumbs at the end of chips or crackers...I did notice when I did my hcg diet how much I like to nibble. So I am making a good effort here not to do it.
1 shake in the morning
1/2 c up egg beaters with 1 tblspoon colby shredded
1 cup of mashed potatoes for lunch with a tblspoon of colby shredded
6 teaspoons of cottage cheese for dinner
1 shake in the evening
2 sf jellos
Saturday pretty much same thing just instead of potatoes I had refried beans and instead of cottage cheese I had onion soup.
So I am looking forward to adding some real meat to my diet but grinding it all up does not sound appetizing for me so I am going to wait till this Thursday when I can add it in ---yeah...maybe it will keep me full longer. I notice that if I don't eat every couple of hours my stomache starts making noises and seems to yell at me to eat...as soon as I eat a little something it shuts up.
I have been doing well at not drinking while eating and waiting about 30 min after I eat to drink so that is going well.
I hate that my pants ride on my incisions...I kind of want to wear a mumu so that there is no rubbing on my incisions but that would not be attractive work attire and I really don't want to ..... can you imagine good lordy.
My post op appt with doc is tomorrow and I am going to beg for a fill in 2 more weeks rather than wait another 4 but I hear he is strict and that it will probably be futile but oh well...I have to TRY!
I am also a little concerned because most people say they don't feel their fills until the 3rd or 4th fill...YIKES I am not sure my will power is that LONG LASTING.
Watched oscars last night we made kind of a night of it and printed off the categories and picked who we thought would win with the winner taking $40....I won...that was fun! I did whoredevores for the hubby and johnny and I just had sf jello and sf popcicles. I loved it when the girl from the help(name?) and the guy from the fockers(name?) introduced there little schtick was sooo funny.
Hope you all have a great monday!
