    It hurts to eat

    drinking water was very painful for me for the first month than i tried crystal light and oddly enough the pain went away, dont have an answer for why but i'm sure glad it did

    Best way to make shakes?

    i use decaf coffee and sugar free creamer and make my protein shake into an iced coffee, thats the only way i can get it down anymore

    Ice has become my best friend

    So it has been VERY hard for me to get my fluids in, it doesnt matter if i drink it cold or room temp it still is uncomfortable and i can't manage to get half of my required water intake down 4 days ago i recently descovered ice it is WONDERFUL i eat cups of it everyday and i am totally satisfied plus it REALLY helps the craving of wanting to eat something crunchy

    Trip to the EVIL mcdonalds

    Been feeling AWESOME getting my walking in everyday and my protein a lil slow on the water intake buuut i'm trying, 2 nights ago my daughter her father and i spent the evening together (which is rare) my lil dreamer wanted mcdonalds i was feeling great so i said what the heck!... BIG mistake the min i walked in i knew it was a mistake i did my best to hold it in while i ordered her food but once we sat down with me and my water and them with their YUMMY looking food i broke down i felt HORRIBLE i was NOT hungry but my head hunger was killing me all i wanted to do was eat her fries and i knew i couldn't i felt soooo bad cause my daughter and her dad had no idea what was going on i was too embarrased to tell them and ruin their dinner, i'm trying so hard to live a NORMAL life without expecting anyone else to change their habits i knew this was going to be hard but it truly hit me just how hard that night i couldnt stop crying they both thought something was hurting me inside from the surgery it took an hour for me to actually tell them what was wrong but after that i felt fine again that was a lesson learned I'M SOOOO NOT READY FOR RESTAURANTS OR FAST FOOD PLACES AT THIS TIME!..... lol

    Confused about post op diet.

    I'm still on the full liquid diet and i will tell you that cream of wheat and cream of chicken soup are my best friends and i'm satisfied with that and once in a while i'll have 3 bites of sugar free pudding if i am truly wanting something different. I still enjoy the sugar free popcicles a lot i can't do jello since i had to eat it a lot 2 weeks before my surgery i seriously can't stand the texure of it anymore, also i focus on the protein shakes more that anything, i'm not even sure if i am "eating" enough since i'm never hungry i only eat maybe 4 bites of the cream of wheat and soup at each sitting so i know at least i'm getting my nutrients thru my shakes ...... enjoy your journey and good luck!!!

    My journey to the new me!

    8 days post op and i'm feeling pretty good still sore but soooo much better than i was a few days ago, i'm still having a hard time getting all the water down but i am doing my best, only eating a few bites of cream of wheat for breakfast and a few bites of cream of chicken soup for lunch and dinner and i'm finding that even difficult concidering i'm not hungry, don't get me wrong the "head hunger" is driving me nutty but i can't control that i'm staying with my parents for the 2 weeks while i recover and i refuse to have them and my daughter change their eating habits because i chose to change mine ... i'm sure it wont bother me so much after i go home, i'm VERY anxious to go back to work and get back to my normal life but at the same time i am enjoying the lil break and i woke up this morning and weighed myself and i am not an emotional kida girl bt i can't lie when i saw the scale read 257 i started to cry i havent been under the high 270's in YEARS i know right now thats only a little weight loss but to me it was the start of THE JOURNEY TO MY NEW LIFE..........
