I just scared the ever loving crap out of my cat by letting out that last little gas pocket
So, today the scale did not move. That is ok, I know my clothes are fitting better. Today I actually went out to a restaurant with my husband. I had iced tea with some artificial sweetner and chicken matzoball soup. When the waiter brought the soup, I went ahead and scooped out the matzoball and chicken chunks and put them on a plate for my husband to eat. I then ate the broth that was left. He felt so guilty getting a patty melt with fries in front of me. I was not angry or tempted for either. I did however want to suck on the pickle sitting on his plate. But other than that, no cravings today. I have had two coffee protein shakes with the instant decaft Tasters Choice packets. I made too much and now have a shake for later in the fridge. I also had a strawberry shake for breakfast.
On to the bad stuff. Gas is insane. I have had the hiccups 3 times today. We went to Target for a few things and once I got to the register I had to run to the bathroom. I ended up with really watery diarreha that lasted about 10 minutes. I had only had one shake at that time. I have noticed my BM's are soft and easy to pass, but this was something else. One thing I have noticed is that when I do go, I leave stains in the bowl. I feel bad whoever went in that stall behind me in Target.
I am posting these as a diary and a note of advice to people waiting for surgery. Not everyone will have the same problems or "symptoms" that I am having. It is tough, I will not lie, but the payoff in the end is so worth it. A month from now, I will be eating eggs, cottage cheese, refried beans and cream soups. And they will taste heavenly!
