This week feels like it has flown by and its only Tuesday!!! REALLY?!?!?
Well week 3 is over but week 4 is the same as the last. Towards the end of this week I will get to move into more solid foods but still have to be mainly pureed foods. Its really hard for me to believe that this project is half way over. It really does get easier by the day but I am also really really hungry. I have discovered that when I get to eat now it feels me up. I eat what I am allowed and then I have to stop, but soon after I am full as a tick. It just makes me wonder if I continue to do that once this is over how small my portions could be forever. I just never thought a cup of mashed potatoes would fill me up.
Anyway, the halfway point has come and gone and we are now traveling down hill. At this point I feel strong, like I said still hungry cause my body thinks I need a full plate of food, but satisfied when I am finished. It is really just the weirdest revelation.
I really only have one more thing for you today. I have posted the days that I go eat at a good restaurant and don't get to eat, and that I didn't cheat. I was reading over one of my posts the other day and realized it sounded like I was bragging and I don't mean it like that at all. I just wanted to point out that these are the things that you don't get when you have this surgery. Birthdays and parties come and go and this surgery is forever. I have been able to keep from eating at these restaurants because I know in 3 more weeks I will get to have dinner at Olive Garden if I want it, but if I had actually had this surgery I would forever have to eat a cup, maybe a cup and a half of something there, with nothing to drink, no dessert, and that is a commitment that I am not willing to make. I just didn't want to come off as a brag or a jerk, so I hope none of you took it that way.
I hope you all have a great day and please keep checking back for more...
