Have you met with your surgeon's dietitian yet? S/he will go over this with you - mine is a high-protein, calorie-limited diet. I just track Protein grams and calories in My Fitness Pal.

I didn't have a supervised diet but my surgeon wanted 4 ounces of Protein every 3 hours.

That lasted like 9 days for me lol. I had mix in other things besides just 4 ounces of chicken breast or turkey lol. I started tracking my food on my fitness pal and focusing on Protein first, drinking my Water and walking. Doing that I was able to lose 12 lbs in 3 months.

But I gained some of it back because I'm undisciplined and like food.

Be sure to tell the Nutritionist what you normally eat - not what you think you should be eating. Depending on your history and habits - they may recommend something different than what we've been told. Take notes! There's a lot of info to remember! This is your opportunity to ask questions too.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
