Going pretty well! It’s forcing me to exercise 3 days a week and I dare say I might enjoy it.

Good! Im so glad everything is going well ❤️
And I hate the fact that I forget exercise feels good and I never remember until I’m doing it .

out with the gals last night...had margaritas with a side of guacamole and chips for dinner omg. i kept meaning to order a proper entree, but just didn't get around to it so just ate the leftover chips and guac that was on the table...

the margaritas alone were like 800 cals! so warning to those drinking mixed drinks during weight loss phase! keep your calorie counts in mind!

i have a fridge and pantry full of groceries and ingredients for a feast i plan to cook up for a Father's Day BBQ we having tomorrow.

so i could theoretically totally whip up something yum and healthy-ish,, but alas i am lazy and opted for Burger King takeout instead.

Went to lunch with my mom today. This was the leftovers along with the untouched tortillas I took home. A kid told me it was “a whole dang meal” 😂

it was chicken with mushrooms, onions, spinach and melted cheese with rice, pico and sour cream.

Apparently my body is just stuck in grief mode right now (my sister passed away this past weekend after a lengthy hospital stay) which sucks because I *know* I should be eating but it makes me feel sick. This was dinner and dessert.

Dinner- 6” multigrain roasted chicken with fresh mozzarella, banana peppers, tomatoes, double pickles, and spinach with the sweet onion teriyaki sauce on the side. My youngest even helped by taking a big bite!

Dessert- Mississippi mud brownies- I took one bite and I was done.

Thank you. It’s been a rough couple of months for us to say the least. I appreciate all the thoughts and prayers and the amount of support family and friends have reached out with as well.

This dang 6” sub is gonna make me insane! (Pictures are the after yesterday and after of today) 😭

I did have loaded brisket fries and iced coffee for breakfast/lunch today. Then another iced coffee and about 1/4 cup Parmesan noodles for dinner. Then the sub as a bedtime snack. So maybe 1500 calories today? Most of it was the fries. At 600 calories. A child asked me if I wanted fried eggs with my sub. I declined.

1st meal of day: leftovers!

white rice, stir-fried tofu and vegetables, and the bone from a 20oz bone-in-ribeye ordered (and not even touched, geez) from dinner at the Keg last night.

mr. ate the rest of it for Breakfast this AM...i told him to save me the bone...i personally liked the fact i ate this at home, cuz at the restaurant i would have had the table manners not to pick it up with my hands and mow down! but at home, i can be as fred flintstone-y as i want!!)

293 calories for the plate contents shown. ate almost all of it...will get to the rest later :)

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
