I am a naughty girl.
So, this was my first week on solid foods.
I totally ate whatever the Hell I wanted.
Yup, that means I ate carbs.
However, compared to how I ate before surgery, I'm doing way better. I used to eat fast food twice a day, every day for the last year or so. Yeah, not anymore. I ate a Sonic hot dog the other day, but threw away the bun. Go me! :)
Yup, I'm starting to get back on track, though. Restricting my carbs to only 30g a day is hard. That's only two pieces of bread. :\
Some evil lady at work sold me a Snickers bar the other day. I took one bite, grimaced, and gave it to my boyfriend. I never thought there would be a day where I wouldn't devour a Snickers bar.
My weight hasn't changed. I'm still hovering around 250, which is expected because I'm eating normal sized portions now. I think my swelling is finally gone, so I really don't feel too much restriction anymore. However, I gave myself a nasty stomach ache today when I ate some BBQ (it was a BBQ for my birthday, which is one Tuesday!), and I ate too fast. While I still don't have restriction, I find I have to chew my food really well, still, or I get stomach pain and then all of a sudden I can't breathe. It's crazy. Taught me a lesson, though.
My vacation is next week! I'm so excited. I'm gonna need plenty of water and tons of protein to get me through the day. Not to mention a 5 Hour or two, 'cause I'm out of shape. But I'm still super excited!
