Totally off the rails today, hit the pantry hard and kept going: Wheat Thins, slices of a chocolate orange, chocolate chip Cookies, milk milk and more milk, a Starbucks mocha latte, the remains of a solid chocolate Santa (approximately shins on down), a bunch of Swiss cheese, I think I had a maple cookie in there as well... I'm sure there's other stuff I forgot. NO REGRETS!

However I am now going out to buy some spinach.

I feel I have the privilege after working so hard to beat anorexia

About 3/4 of the way into my pre-op diet, I had a moment of weakness when a bunch of chocolate was brought into our apt. after the holidays. Either way, I saw it in the fridge, ended up eating one piece.. Then another. Finally had about 5 small pieces in total. Then I thought, 'Well, I've done that much, might as well have a little extra Protein as well,' so I did just that for my nightly meal.

I also cheated like 3 other times by eating a bit more protein than asked for, mostly because I was absolutely starving and miserable. It was never much those handful of times, but it was still over my max daily allowance. Also I may have accidentally ate the wrong type of protein as well once or twice, since my instructions are a bit vague on what is allowed. (It's also quite difficult to get in touch with any nurses here to ask questions, and speaking to the surgeon is just.. not possible, lol.)

I REPLACED anorexia with obesity and have likely put obesity in remission with this sleeve but it will always, ALWAYS be a daily struggle to maintain health.
Meanwhile, none of that gives me permission to make fun of anyone on either side of the fence, especially since l know the heartache of both places.
I say this with all kindness, making jokes about the vulnerabilities of others isn’t a privilege you’ve somehow earned. It’s a weakness, a lack of empathy.

On this past Tuesday, spent the day with my BFF and we went to lunch at Chuy"s (Mexican restaurant) and like the dedicated girl I am I drank Water and ordered chicken fajitas. I never eat tortillas since I have intolerance of gluten. Box up my leftovers and when our waitress brought the check she also delivered 2 very small pieces of tres leches cake which is THE BOMB if you have never had it.

We did not order it but she said "everyone gets free cake today because it is Elvis' birthday (Austin is weird like that...okay) So, I had a small bite and ate the strawberry on top and a bit more of the sauce. First cake I have eaten in over 8 months. She then came back and I channeled my inner @FluffyChix and asked her to take the rest away and pour dish soap on it so I would not be tempted to go in the kitchen and dig it out of the trash.🤪

Dang! Why didn't you say it was Chuy's? The one on Barton Springs? My office used to be behind it. We'd walk over for happy hour after work. LOL! Congrats on limiting to 1 bite!!

The other day my husband and I decided to go out to lunch and I ate 1/2 of a french dip sandwich with swiss on it, and a few french fries. The next day I ate the same outta the leftovers (gave the rest of the fries to my dog). Since then I have had some Cookies but since there are no more, I'm back on track. I feel that we cannot deny ourselves ALL the time, but need to limit the indulgence to once in a great while. I AM happy that I cannot chow down large amounts of the wrong stuff like I did before surgery which, for me, is a handy reminder when I feel full after such instances.

It was the one on the North side near Lakeline Mall....after eating we hit up DSW and Nordstrom's rack so worked off those calories. And of course, I found a gorgeous swimsuit coverup and a long beachy skirt for the cruise. Passed up all the sky high heel hooker shoes we tried on🙄😜

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
