Food Right Now

The past month has not been easy.  But, as I sit very close to having lost 100 lbs since October, I have little reason to really complain.  These setbacks are not as bad as some I have read about recently.  And really, considering how bad my health was, this has all been a blessing overall.

Saying that, there are things I miss more than I hoped I would.  If you put these things in front of me, I could not eat them and I would not eat them.  But the thought of them gets me sometimes.   Mostly it is carbs like bread.  I miss bread so much.  I know eventually I will be allowed to have it again, but right now, I miss bread.

I am lucky in that there are not many things I have missed.  Not really at least.  I have to be so careful right now and I can’t handle too much anyway.  But, food used to be easy (too easy apparently) and now it is not.  And while that is ok, it makes me wish I didn’t have to think so hard about it.

In the meantime, I keep trying new recipes and finding new combinations that I really love.  Currently I have Chicken Parm meatballs and a beef roast with pepper and onion (like a Philly Cheesesteak).  All bariatric friendly, all low fat, low sodium, and low calorie.  And I am eating them with veggies and fruit.  Hard to complain right now.

The weight loss is slowing down now that I am starting to eat again.  Its good.  Still losing about 5 lbs a week right now.  Again, no complaints.

Thank you to everyone for their love and support right now.  I can’t wait to catch up with you all again soon.
