      Icecream, I slipped and fell mouth first into it. I'd been gradually getting further from plan for a few weeks... Not enough protein, not enough water... Things with more than the 3 grams of sugar than I'm supposed to have per serving. .. and then pumkin spice icecream. It's not the end of the world, but I don't want it to be the norm either. So I'm putting my self back on track. 
      3.something more pounds and I'll drop down under 200!!! Icecream's not going to hold me back!

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

        Nothing you've said sounds ridiculous. Anything complicating your life is important and matters. I'm glad to hear that you are seeking out the help of a therapist. Many people try to ignore problems until they become overwhelmed by them... or they allow the stigma of seeing a therapist prevent them from getting help... or, unfortunately, they don't have access to a mental health professional.

        Good on you for visiting your mother and asking for help. As a mother of four adult children, it feels nice to still be needed. My own mother is going through the early stages of dementia now and I'm terrified of the day when she might not even recognize me. Treasure your parents. The older you get, the more you realize how fragile and fleeting life can be. (Talk about being a downer!)

        I hope your personal issues became more manageable soon. Try to stay strong, but never be afraid to ask for help. :)

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)
