So I will be 4 weeks post op tomorrow and I am still trying to get the hang of eating soft foods. Things like cottage cheese and yogurt and cheese seem to be no problem. Fish is easy... other meat.. tricky. I have been eating turkey lunch meat wrapped around a piece of cheese. I have to eat very slowly, which I suck at. I always eat too fast and then end up with a little pain. I keep practicing but at work I just can't seem to remember to eat slow. I am very aware of the amount I am eating so I have never eaten too much. I will pretty much be on this same diet for the next 6 weeks. Then I can add in raw veggies and fruits. I can't wait. I love salads and I am really missing them.
My back is still giving me big trouble. I hurt most of the time. By the time night rolls around I am so much pain I just can't wait to go to bed. It has certainly improved but now I feel like the improving has sort of leveled off. I am going to the chiropractor 3x a week. It helps, but not enough. Back pain is so frustrating.
My weight loss is moving a long nicely this week. I will have an official weigh-in tomorrow. Being that it is fat Tuesday, people in the metro Detroit area celebrate with paczkis which is a Polish filled donut. I never really liked them but people have been trying shove them down my throat all day. I can't eat them, and I am okay with that. None-the-less, I hope you all are enjoying your fat Tuesday!
