Going backwards sucks !!!!

Since I got my first fill yesterday my surgeon (as I'm sure most do) require 2 days of liquids plus 2 days of mushies right after a fill. I had been enjoying my soft regular foods for the past week and then BAM...back to the world of starving and liquids, just as I had found my new favorite things ( steamed dumplings...oh how I crave you right now !!!). Planning on the mashed potatoes and refired beans w cheese tommorow but right now about to enjoy an ice cream bar...I know I shouldnt but I figured since my calorie intake yesterday was only 600 and today with dinner was only 480, I can splurge a little and have an ice cream bar..Dont crucifi me on this one, please !!

Todays menu:

  • 1.5 cups of skim plus milk (calories: 180)
  • 1 cup of strained liquified lentil soup (calories: 150)
  • 1 cup of strained liquified lentil soup (calories: 150)

OMG steamed dumplings sound so good! Ice cream bar too!

The good news is you will probably lose several pounds with this mushy phase again. Good luck!

Thanks Gen ! Weight in is tommorow and as long as I loose that pesky 1.5 lbs keeping me from the 10% loss mark I'll be elated !!
