My mom brought over a fave dessert of the Kid's yesterday afternoon (which happens to also be one of my pre-op faves). Tried to resist, but I succumbed by dinnertime. Sooooo worth it. There is still about 1/3 of it left in the fridge and I can hear it calling my name...it's likely to end up im my stomach by 3pm...5pm tops.

Also had a killer headache yesterday. I didn't have a single cup of coffee. Coincidence?

Dinner and drinks out with Mr & pals...I didn't order anything for myself (other than drinks)...and just had bites of everyone's food. After tasting menus, this is my preferred way of eating out (especially when my meal companions let me have input on what they order! LOL)

P.S. Didn't have to resist the lemon curd tart because SOMEONE ate it all 😡, but I got Mr. to order a lemon cheesecake at dinner, so it's all good ;)

10:00pm - coffee w/ cream!

For snacking in the middle of the night, you make pretty good choices. When I did that before surgery it would have been chocolate candy, Cereal (sugar kind-fruit loops etc)
Have you always had trouble sleeping?

Sometimes I make good choices late-night-snacking choices, sometimes I do not, LOL.

And yeah, I've always been a horrible sleeper/insomniac/night owl. Even before wls surgery. But it was worse back then because I would snore and wake myself up or have to get up and pee 5-6 times a night. At least now when if/when I go to sleep, I can stay asleep longer than an hour. My problem is getting to sleep. :(

Went to an Italian buffet for Mr's grandma's Bday. Its really not worth it for me to eat at buffets, nor was I really interested in the spread that was on offer, so I opted out of eating and drank 2 vodka caesars instead (I ate some garnish! hahha). Mr. joined me in solidarity and skipped the buffet and just had a couple beers himself. Its funny cuz some relatives commented afterwards that the next time we get together for buffet, they are just going to order drinks too, LOL.

----------------------------------------

9:00am - 1/2 skinny tea latte

11:00am - 5 chicken wings + 1tbsp hot sauce

3:00pm - 2 vodka caesars (each one had a gherkin + a mini pepperette as garnish...which I ate off the first one, but my nephew ate the garnish off the second one, LOL)

7:00pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + 1 oz orange segments + 3 chicken wings + 2.5 oz pan fried chicken in bacon fat

10:00pm - 3 chicken wings + 1 tbsp BBQ Sauce + 1/4 of a cherry shortbread square + 2 fl oz Amaretto

5'2"/30 months PO/ CW 169
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Back in action lol. Was in England and Hungary had a grand time. food and drink was a very big issue I should have planned it out better. I tried to eat as "healthy" as possible but constantly on plane it in car. Also had a hard time finding drinks with Sweetener everything had sugar even Water was hard to find not sparkling. At the end of the day I weigh 169. Which is about a 3 pound gain. I'm not too upset about it I'm getting right back on track.

P.s. still having some issues with ovarian cyst l. I'm living on pain meds for back pain and hormonal headaches. Got my period after 20 days with last month 25 days previously I was always perfectly regular with 28 day cycles so trying to get to bottom of it.

@chayarg : welcome back! Glad you had a blast on vacay! It's difficult to stay on track on vacay, which is why I also give myself a pass when i'm out of the country, and just deal when I get back.

❤️

I used to adore Vientamese coffee! :( So curious...with all the sugar from the sweetened condensed milk and the cookie, did you have any dumping issues?
