My virtual inspiration

To all of you who blog out there, you totally inspire me. I have probably avoided a million binges just because your words have encouraged me! I just read Amy's blog and now feel so much better about my lack of control and restriction. I feel like there is hope for restriction! I follow so many blogs and I read them on a very regular basis. I have picked up so many tips and tricks, as well as a good laugh many times. So thank you!

Today I am back in the saddle again. I made myself some chicken salad sort of thing with eggs and light mayo and onions. I wasn't able to eat all of it, but mostly I think that was just because I got bored. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't awesome either.

I find myself getting into an eating rut more and more lately. I am trying to keep it fresh and exciting but man... I just don't know. I still can't have beef for another 4 months and turkey and chicken are getting boring. I like pork but don't have a whole lot of variety with that either. I don't really cook fish at home... I just suck at it. I have been spending my non-busy reference desk time looking at new recipes. If you guys have anything awesome to share, please do!

My port incision is sore today! Wearing real pants seems to be a problem. I also really want to get back into my work-out routine but have to be so careful, and that makes it hard. I can't help but think if I am not extremely careful I will screw my port up again. I know this isn't the case but I still can't stop thinking about it. I do NOT want to go through another surgery.

I do not know why you didnt let me know earlier you had a blog! But I am a follower now dang it! Don't feel bad. You can't have beef for another 4 MONTHS! That sucks. I love my hamburger patties...that's probably not helping is it? Beef goes down easier than chicken or pork for me. Stay strong. I had restriction after my 3rd fill, but it was NOTHING compared to this last one. You pics look great!

I think your new pictures look great! There is a huge difference. People ARE noticing even if they aren't saying anything. :) I am so sorry you had to have more surgery! but glad you are doing so well. BTW, I am a librarian too!

hi I saw that you live in Michigan, and that your surgeon was Dr. Katz. Did you have it done at St. Johns? If so what do you think of the staff. I have my appointment with my surgeon on the 12th. Thanks for any information.
