Prelude to Thanksgiving

Well its been a while since I last posted something here.  Life has been full and hectic lately.  My weight loss continues to go down quickly.  As of this post I have lost 52 pounds.  Its been 2 months and 5 days since my surgery.

It is still funny to me how much I can not eat and the smallest amount of food fills me up, no matter what it is.  A piece of cheese, one chicken finger, half a bag of oatmeal.  It is just incredible and a constant struggle in my head to try to get used to these extremely small amounts of food.

The difference now is that its very VERY uncomfortable to overeat.  It feels almost as if I'm on the verge of throwing up, with alot of indigestion and somewhat pain in the stomach.  Its not a fun feeling at all.  I have done it twice now and, ugh, I could punch myself for doing it.

With the holidays coming up, I used to be so into cooking and baking.  This year, not so much.  Its not that I don't like the holidays, Its just that since I can't eat like I used to, well, I just don't really care so much about it.

Sure I will make thanksgiving Dinner.  I figure since its just the Hubby, Daughter and myself, Ill split the turkey in two, after its cooked and freeze half of it for another time.  Im not going to make all the trimmings this year, maybe some mashed potatoes, stuffing and corn, some pillsbury biscuits for the Family.  As for me, Ill stick to bird only and a mini cheese cake bite for dessert!

To all of you that read this silly blog and all of your families, I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!
