Well it's 19 days in and I can eat anything, drink as much as I want and no restriction.
This is harder than the pre op diet and I can honestly say I don't know why. When I was on the pre op diet I was so scared they wouldn't do the op that I NEVER cheated but now when the consequence's are much worse I find myself popping forbidden food in my mouth. I have discovered that I am a terrible picker and I don't know why I never noticed before.
Yesterday I started the day with a Slim Fast shake then I had another for lunch, a yogurt in the afternoon and fish pie for tea. All of which was ok and allowed but then in the evening I had 3 Ryvita with Philly (not high calorie food but not allowed). The Ryvita got a bit stuck and I had to have a drink quick! Why am I risking displacing my band for a bloody Ryvita cracker????
I need my head read.
My weight goes up a pound then down a pound everyday but today its down so I am feeling a bit more positive. I start every day with a positive attitude and try to stick to mainly liquid and mush. But the problem is that 4oz of mush does not fill me up and liquid only works for a short time. I am counting the weeks till I get my first fill. I think it will be at least another 4 weeks until its done.
But on the plus side I just had to buy jeans in a smaller size so that felt good and the weather is fine so I can get out and do more exercise. I am hoping to get my bike out of the shed this weekend and see if I can still ride it (its been a while).
We have Marcus's two sons with us this week so hopefully we will get a lot more exercise. We are going to the theme parks but I am not sure if I am allowed to go on the stomach turning rides??? Any advice would be gratefully accepted. I don't want to dislodge the band by going on a roller coaster.
Will post pics in the week.
Enjoy the sunshine ;-)
