Time:10:28 am.
Mood: thankful.
I suppose it is about time I updated here. I am doing fine, some days it is easier to get the protein and water in and make good choices, other days it's not quite as easy. I am having a bit of a hard time not drinking soda, so I have taken a couple of drinks here or there, and there's no way I could drink even a half of a soda if I wanted to, but the sip here or there appeases me, so that's fine I guess. It shouldn't kill me anyways.

It is VERY nice not having to worry about fat, though since I malabsorb it and only absorb 20%. I am not really eating fat foods, i am just not concerned with the number of fat grams really. I am eating more carbs than I probably should though, but that is mostly because I have *NO* money right now to buy the right foods, so I have a bunch of easy cheap foods - that should get better as soon as my disability check comes in so I can buy the right stuff (meats and stuff are spendy!). So now that I know my check is coming I'll be able to go get a bunch of chicken and stuff. I'll probably buy a roast to stick in the crock pot, too.. I really need better high protein breakfast ideas though. I am *SO* sick of eggs. I have discovered I like turkey bacon, too so that helps. The 99% fat free kind sucks though, so you have to get the kind with fat in it - it's actually good and tastes like regular bacon. But finding other breakfast things that are low in carbs/high in protein is not an easy task. I suppose it's good that I can only eat a small amount! But it can be hard to get 80+ grams of protein a day.

Sometimes I wish I could weigh more often so I could see what my progress is, especially since people ask me so often. But for the most part it's better this way, I don't know when/if I get stuck with weight loss or not - that in and of itself would drive me batty.

Subject:Soooooooo Next week I will be having surgery
Time:8:44 pm.
My surgery will be next Thursday March 10. I am not so much nervous about the surgery as I am about everyone and everything else. Making sure things run smoothly when i am gone, not freaking out missing my baby boy for the week.. PROTEIN is pissing me off and stressing me out.. the protein drinks I've had are disgusting. I cannot even gag down slimfast.. UGH! And I know my Aunt is going to make me drink em.. I cannot afford them.. pfft.
