Since September 22nd ( my last appointment before the big surgery) I have lost 31 pounds!! 1 week post surgery I have lost 13. I am so excited!!
I went for my 1 week follow up to have my staples out and I was kinda sad cause that was pretty much the whole appointment. I did get to chat with the practitioner that was doing my appointment and from the sounds of things I'm doing everything right :) I got to move to cream soups yesterday......I know...exciting right ;)? Nan went with me to my appointment and afterwards we went to Souper Salad and I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted to eat so I got a bowl of chicken enchilada and a bowl of potato. The chicken enchilada is the one that sounded really good to me so I tried that one first. I took a couple of bites and oh my gosh...I started feeling nauseous. I took a drink of my water and tried the potato. I had a much better reaction to it and it was really good! There were a few chunks of potato in it but I just ate around them. This was also the first time I had been in a restaurant since September 22nd. I did very well and I was very proud of myself.
This weekend I plan on making some really healthy soups in my crock pot to put into containers to freeze so I can just pull them out and warm them up. I've found a few recipe's I'm wanting to try but I may have to make a few adjustments to some of them. I'll post pictures and recipe's when I'm finished.
The only problem that is reoccurring is about 5 pm I want to go grab something for dinner or I start thinking about different foods. And it's not that I'm hungry at all, it's just habit I assume. Today when I got off work (yep went back today :) I wanted to go grab something but I didn't for obvious reasons. When I got to my house I got a Popsicle and ate it and that helped a lot. I waited about an hour and then fixed me a tomato soup I had in the cabinet. I know it will get easier in time and I just need to be patient. Which I am :)
