So, yesterday I found out exactly why they say to eat slow. I was drinking my protein shake of the afternoon and watching tv. Before I realized it, I had drank 8 oz in 15 mins just sipping! I was in soooooo much PAIN! We're only supposed to drink about 2 oz per 15 mins. My pouch was mad at me! I got up and walked around for about a half hour and paced. Finally about an hour later it subsided. Ouch, I will NEVER do that again!

Ok, so I have been home for a few days now. I am doing really well. I lost the surgery weight already (everyone gains about 10 pounds from the surgery). YAY. So, now everything else is gravy. lol. I am still pretty tired, so I am going to keep this short. Later!

It's official. I am sick of shakes. Hate em. I guess it's because I was making them taste so good with milk and fruit that plain with H2O is just, well, almost unbearable. I heard on OH.com in some different threads that people try them with diet soda's, so tomorrow when I get paid, I am going to Walmart to buy some vanilla shake mix and diet orange soda. Hopefully this will taste like an orange creamsicle. We shall see. Now, if only I could find something to put in the chocolate shake mix and the strawberry. I use the torani sf syrups, but they are getting a bit old. I know, gonna be drinking them for a while, so I am trying to find new ways to drink em. Till another day. 11 Days to go! :) Can't wait!

Ok, so I have been on the shake diet no for 4 whole days. I am down 7 pounds, so not too shabby, IMHO. Day two was the most difficult thus far. I will say though, I am not a fan of Bake sales and Pot Lucks at work solely because my desk is literally in front of the table they put everything on. I know, ask to move, right? No, I like my desk and the people I sit near. I will tell you I never realized how strong I can be. I didn't stray from my diet at ALL! I am so proud of myself. I really am. WOOHOO! Ok, I will check in again soon. Down to 17 days. :)

Ok, so we're down to 19 days and counting. I am such a weirdo, I started my Pre-op diet three weeks before the surgery instead of two. I am doing ok with it, but I get really hungry right after walking, so I make sure I have one of my three shakes right after. I basically have three protein shakes a day and one lean cuisine meal. Plus the vitamins and I am walking 1 mile a day. At least. Sometimes, I do two. So, on the food spectrum, everything is pretty boring right now and will be for a while, but I can't wait to start experimenting once I start phase 4. :) Right now I am looking forward to loosing weight! I will check in again soon.
