Hello Everyone! Ok so week #2 seems to have rolled on by. I lost 4 lbs WOOHOO! Today I move off of my soft foods diet and onto Ground turkey/hamburger, fruits, vegetables. Last night for my soft foods I took a can of fat free refried beans and mixed a small can of chile verde sauce in it to spice it up. Took about 3/4 of a cup and topped it with a tsp of fat free sour cream it was yummy. I have some for lunch today too! Little nervous about starting larger foods, like veggies, but just have to remember to chew, chew, chew. I have not had my first fill yet so the band doesn't seem to restrict too much. Boiled Eggs was the only thing that seemed to get a little caught up in there.
A friend has given me a treadmill so I am looking forward to excercising and losing some more. I am trying to set a goal in my head of 2 lbs per week but I have an obsession on getting on the scale every day. I think I just have a fear of failing since diets have failed so many times in the past. My port surgery spot seems to be a little more sore the last few days, but I guess I just need to give it some time. It has only been two weeks.
Well Two Weeks Down and am excited about the progress. I was also very excited to talk to my best friend on the phone for an hour last night. Somehow she just knows how to get me on the right path. Sitting at home by myself just makes me want to eat for entertainment but talking on the phone diverted the path!YEAH -
Looking forward to this week, adding some new items in the meal plan. Decaf Iced Tea seems to be keeping me hydrated and feeling like I have a treat!
