So I started this week with high hopes of my food bucket list. As it turns out, so far nothing is as great as I thought it would be. I wanted Thai food, had it for lunch last Friday and it just wasn't good, it was all sticky and sat like a lump in my stomach for hours. Then Saturday, I had Chinese buffet, and it was a really good place, but all it did was give me a stomach ache.
I guess that part of making this decision, to have this procedure done, is knowing that "food" isn't what makes me happy really. Maybe I have been looking at eating and dieting the wrong way for many years. Oh sure I would eat for comfort whether I was happy, sad, excited, angry, for whatever reason have you, I would find something to eat. Its that attitude that got me to where I am now.
On Sunday I went back to eating like I should at this stage of the game. One or two protein shakes a day, and a normal meal.
I also tried taste testing the clear protein drinks I'm going to have to drink immediately after the surgery. That Isopure drinks are not THAT bad. They do have a funny aftertaste but all I can say is I will dilute it in water if I turn out that diverse to them.
So come Thursday, I will have a Doctors Appointment every day till the end of the month. After that, its all quite until the Surgery. Which is 29 days from today.
