So, I had a turkey burger on a bottom bun last night without chewing very good. No issues. Like I said before, I am not really disappointed in this. I have enjoyed my journey and have learned to rely on myself for now. Though I know I won't be able to do that forever, that was why I had the surgery.
I have had a very successful eating week so far and have consistently worked out everyday. I have been running and do the step aerobics. I feel so much better when I am on track but also know this is the calm before the storm. Next week starts "eating madness". Monday I have a department lunch (I am the only person in my entire library who works in two departments both adult and teen services). Wednesday I have my other department lunch, Thursday I have a brunch, Friday X-Mas with husbands fam, and Sunday X-mas with my fam. Yikes. I wonder how much I can gain in one week?!
I do plan on indulging, within reason. I will eat what I want, just watch my portions. I do think my fill has made a difference in the amount I can eat, at least slightly. I don't think I can pack it down like I could before this fill, but I don't plan on trying either.
I will, without doubt, be strict about exercise all next week. No messing around there! That seems to be my saving grace in all this. What plan of attack will you all be using during the next holidays weeks?
