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.
