      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️

      Well, at least I didn't gain weight!
      So mini-break road trip over, and while I did drink a little too much wine, AND did not meet my daily water intake goals, AND did not meet my protein goals, AND ate much later into the night than I normally do, AND went over my daily 20g net carb limit EVERY DAY, I still managed to lose 0.7 lbs.  Lol, I'll take it.  I'm just relieved the scale did not move upwards 😎
