I have been really, really sticking to everything, clear liquids, getting in my protein, etc.
Now i am on to mushy foods - just had a 1/4 cup of yellow tomato soup, very delicious and so far sitting just right with me.
A few observations:
1 - I am not that hungry, the challenge i have is more with smell - why the heck does our mouth water when it gets a good smell? so strange, i get the science behind it but would be nice if that part of the science would just go away
2 - I am very nervous (maybe a better word is cautious) about having any issues. I just don't want to feel that terrible tightness I have been feeling the past week - that just plain sucked! The shoulder pain was ridiculous. I sincerely hope that is all over.
3 - I am surprised it is 3 weeks until any kind of fill. But I need to heal so I guess i will take it.
I go see the doctor again in 3 weeks - goal in 3 weeks:
1 - Be down another 10 lbs
2 - Be walking at least 4 times a week for 30 mins
Goal by my daughter's graduation on June 8 - be down 14.2 lbs - total of 30 lbs...
So as i say - I feel i am on my way - feeling good, feeling strong, feeling like i will be successful!
