Today was the most crazy day I have had in a long time. Work was a little nuts, then I had a counseling appointment right afterwards. I am down another pound thankfully. Now at 359, I haven’t been in the 350s in a long time, it feels good. I made an appointment with the dietitian at the Bariatric Center for next Thursday. I just want to go over my diet with her and find out better ways to get my protein in. My counselor doesn’t think it sounds like I am getting enough food or protein in. I have a hard time getting my protein in because I don’t eat much meat or care for too many dairy products, I will eat cheese but that it about it. I hate milk and protein shakes. I will make myself a protein smoothie with diet fruit juice when I have time too. I had one yesterday evening and will try to have one this evening. I have to take small steps in order to get my protein in since I hate it so much. Class was after my appointment, at least that wasn’t crazy. Had a lamb chop and Greek couscous salad for dinner that Patrick made, it was very yummy. I think tomorrow we will have a stir fry for dinner, I was just going to have a veggie stir fry but I probably should buy some meat or seafood to put in it (you know, for that added protein). Luckily, tomorrow all I have to do is work and go to my personal training session. I should be home by 4:30pm which will be nice for once. Friday I get to come home by 2pm! Patrick, my brother, his girlfriend, and I are planning on going to a haunted house and hayride Friday evening which should be nice. My brother is returning from Portugal tomorrow evening where he was on business, so hopefully he is up for going, if not Patrick and I will still go, it’s my gift to Patrick for landing a new job. Sunday we are heading to Columbus for our nephew’s 1st birthday party.
Tonight I want to share a image that was shared on my Facebook Gastric Sleeve Support Group last night. I really liked it and wanted to pass it on. It gets you think about what life might be like at your ideal weight and how it would feel. Tonight as I lay in bed to go to sleep I am going to think about this. I will share my thoughts on this in tomorrow’s blog. What would it feel like for you to be at your ideal weight? I want you to think about this tonight too and please feel free to share with me.
