That’s how much I’ve lost since July 07. Today I weighed 184. Down from 254. I’m amazed. I’ve never been able to say that I’ve lost that much weight. Nice feeling to have since I’ve been bummed about staying the same weight.
I haven’t been very hungry the last couple of days. I have my protein coffee first thing in the morning. Then around 9-10 am I figure I’d better eat breakfast. Today it was 1/3 cup cottage cheese (I really do like cottage cheese!) topped with peaches that I diced and cooked with sf torani vanilla syrup, pecans, and cinnamon. Tastes like a peach cobbler. Then around 12:30 I made some roasted eggplant spread. I used a fajita sized mission carb balance tortilla, topped it with the eggplant spread and mozzarella cheese and toasted it. I ate a little more than half. And then I get really hungry around 3:30 – 4 pm each day! So I had the rest of my little pizza, a little protein brownie that I made last week and some Fage topped with the peaches! Funny, I can barely eat half the pizza for lunch, but then I can eat all that in the afternoon. For dinner I had a veggie and bean salad with chicken breast and a few mini rice cakes. That’s my day. When I figure it out, it seems that I’m getting about 1000 calories a day. Some might say that’s high for a 5 month post op, but I feel good at this amount. I may not be dropping weight like crazy, but at least I don’t feel like I’m going to drop dead from exhaustion or weakness. I try to concentrate on healthy, high protein foods that taste GOOD.
