Well, it's been awhile. Had to get thru the holidays and things are finally calming down a bit. To my amazement, I am still loosing some weight. I am now down to a number that I never thought, in my wildest dreams, I would get to...the 130's. I did take the stomach flu back in December and was very sick for 2.5 weeks. I found it very hard to bounce back from that sickness. I think that was partially due to my inability to have large intakes of fluids and protein. I also think I was a little bit run down to start with, as I was not taking as good of care of myself as I had been by making sure that I took my vitamins daily. But now, I am back on track! I am basically eating whatever I want to eat when I want it. I just simply don't have a desire for the kind of foods that I had before surgery like chocolates and sweets. I also loved starchy foods, but now they tend to cause me pain so I just avoid them...they are not worth the trouble and I really don't feel like I am missing out on them. I do still have some trouble digesting "stringy" foods such as BBQ and chicken. I do find myself wanting to try new foods and enjoying most of them. I really like nuts, corn, and salads. If you have never tried out thepioneerwoman.com you gotta try it. Just click on the Tasty Kitchen tab and you will never again need a recipe book. I have tried many new dishes off there.
I am now wearing a size 8-10 and a medium top. My foot even shrunk 1/2 size. I feel great and I feel like a woman set free from my fat prison!
