  1. Heading into week 3

    Head Hunger and stalling

    Because I was more of a foodie than an emotional eater, I was hoping that the head hunger would be minimum.  But boy did it hit me like a ton of bricks this weekend.  I felt depressed and my first (and hopefully only) sense of regret.  I knew that having my surgery right before the Christmas holiday would be rough, but man this is really rough.  I didn't even realize how much my life with my friends and family revolved around food.  Every event I attended, everyone's home I visited, every gathering centred around food, and I hated that I could not partake.  And don't get me started on TV and advertisements everywhere you turn, It was like I was living in HELL.   My best girlfriends and I have an annual ladies sleepover in which we exchange gifts and catch up on what's going on in each other's lives, and it centred around food and alcohol, which I can not partake. so as they had their Nacho's and various other finger foods, I was there snacking at my yoghurt, or sipping on my protein shake.   I really felt like the odd man out.  And the worst part is I know I only want these things because I can't have them!   

    I also know that around week 3 most people stall. I am 2 weeks and 4 days out and yes I hit the dreaded stall.  I haven't lost any weight in 3 days and actually gained a few oz's over 2 days.  which I know is temporary, but still gives a small blow to the ego.  I am however losing inches, I can definitely tell by the way my clothes are beginning to fall off of me. a pair of pants I purchased 3 days before Christmas, was very loose in the waist when I attempted to wear them again yesterday.  I know I am not the only person going through this, but it's nice to be able to just let it out.

      Hang in there. Next time you head through the holidays, you'll be able to partake, but hopefully in a very careful, sane way. The days of our food insanity are behind us! We are learning a new, sane way to live, laugh and love!
