Why am I awake at this hour? It's Sunday... as if I'm working and I notice it's a weekend! I've been awake since 6am, and I'm getting tired. Wow... awake early enough for McDondalds breakfast, yet I no longer eat that kind of food!
Life since surgery has gotten easier, and I'm able to eat some normal food. I'm finally getting the required daily protein, so I no longer have to worry about losing a lot of hair. If only the hair loss worked for other parts of the body... then life would be perfect! I haven't lost any extra weight this week, so I'm a little sad... but hey, I'm actually eating FOOD! I'm measuring my portions to monitor portion control, and staying away from anything fattening. I tried fish, and had no problem, as well as a chickpea salad... mmm!
I notice that if I don't drink enough liquid throughout the day, I get hungry. Grrr... I was hoping I would never have hunger pains again. I do notice that when I eat something high in protein, I'm not hungry again for hours! Now I must focus on getting my ass outside and moving. My anxiety is still a constant struggle, but if I want to continue to lose weight I have to overcome my fear. Now it's common sense... burn calories, and take in very little calories and fat... equaling weight loss. Oh Lord... wish me luck!
