    Since yesterday I crave sweet stuff. Luckily most of the protein stuff comes sweet. It's kind of interesting because the days before I craved more salty stuff.

    Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

    I wonder what life would be like if everyone dumped. I just ate a few too many (oreo double stuff) cookies and feel like absolute shite. Can you imagine what the food industry would be like if everyone experienced this? Something tells me that we would all be much healthier.

    I had a EUREKA (or DUH) moment and realized I don't have to eat 1200 calories EVERY day, but as an average for the week. So! This week I ate up to 1400 calories on my 2 heavy workout days (adding a protein bar and some extra veggies and allowing myself a little cheese) and 900-1100 on the other 5 days of the week. Lo and behold three pounds melted off this week. I'm so excited because I was ravenous on my workout days and just 200 extra calories have made all the difference. Yay!

    Going for my revision to bypass tomorrow.  Feeling a little nervous but also laidback at the same time. Pre-op diet was different to what I did three years ago, but I guess there is no one right way to do things. Here’s hoping all goes well!

    So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
    Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
    What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
    He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
    Not complaining.

    I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
    SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
    Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
    I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

    Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

    It’s my eight month surgery anniversary. Whoo hoo!
    It hasn’t been easy but then it could have been much, much more challenging. I’ve had stalls that lasted weeks & weeks. I’ve mysteriously developed some health issues (fingers crossed they don’t become serious) which I didn’t have before. I’ve forgotten what a regular bowel motion is, vomit bile & saliva about once a week (damn morning vitamin) & some days I gurgle like a blocked drain! My energy levels aren’t great & I often feel tired but I’m sooooo glad I made the decision to have the surgery. 
    I feel way better about myself. I look way better than I did. 😜 My feet don’t ache. My hiccups and reflux are not as severe as they used to be (no more sore muscles after a hiccup attack). I don’t breathe heavily walking up a couple of flights of stairs. I’m the smallest in my family not the biggest (though I’m still the shortest - tee hee). 
    There have been unexpected learnings & realisations that resonated. Like realising I am a small person but I ate like I was a large framed 6ft 2. Like realising my nieces & nephews didn’t see me as their fat aunt but just saw me as their Sissy; their favourite & bestest aunt who loved them to pieces. Like I can sip one drink for hours, not eat the cheeses, dips, charcuterie or fries & still have lots of fun when out with my friends.

    Week 5 Post Op Report

    What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

    I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

    I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

    I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

    I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

    I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

    I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

    I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

    I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

    I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

    None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

    Today I walked 3.4 miles. It was a beautiful walk. I am so blessed to live by the ocean. I like the gym but these outdoor walks have really made me happy. I may even try to start jogging once I am approved to do so.
    Set your intentions now! Start working toward them NOW. No matter if you are pre-op or post op. Go get it! You wanted it, and it's up to you to grab it.
    Four weeks post op and all is well.
    How is is going for you?

    I am sitting here in AWE of this past week. I have done well. I am able to get all my liquids in and I am not hungry and my progress is steady!

    Today was my first week post-op nutritionist meeting. I have been released to the next phase! So I can look forward to sugar-free puddings, low-fat cottage cheese, creamed soups, eggwhites, humus, and pureed/refried beans. NOTHING with chunks, seeds or spicy.

    In addition to that I am still to get 48 ounces of CLEAR liquids in (broth, water, decaf tea) And I am suppose to have my vitamins as well as my protein shakes! Right now I am just loving Muscle Milk. It’s 25 grams of protein per bottle. I love chocolate but I find the chocolate one seems a bit too thick for me at this phase. So I am drinking the Vanilla Creme and Banana Creme.

    This morning I had 1 ounce of Kettle and Fire Butternut Squash Soup with is made with bone broth! So yummy!
    15lbs down
