Bucket list.....not so much

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.
