I had my 3rd NUT visit on Wednesday, all is well and I’m down 2.3 lbs. Which is okay cause they don’t have me on a diet plan and I’m not required to lose weight prior to surgery. I’m just preparing for what is to come, by taking my vitamins and changing my eating habits so it won’t be a cultural shock afterwards. Mentioning changing my eating habits, I now read labels get in about 60oz of water, decreased my carbs intake (not as much as I should but it’s a work in progress). I also increased my fruit intake, but I’m still struggling with eating 4-5 small meals a day. Because I can’t bring my phone to my desk, I’m going have to get a watch that has a timer to remind me to eat (whatever it takes). I also get in about 80gm of protein, all through food. I have not tried any shakes at this point and not sure if I intend to, I continue to stock up on samples.
On Monday I went to a support group, the focus was on handling stress. We were giving scenarios and had to come with solutions to try cope with the situation. The different groups came up with very good solutions. Some of the members shared some their experiences and tips dealing with WLS which was very helpful. I did learn that you can take back open shake mix to GNC and The Vitamin Shopee if you don’t like them.
Oh and update to my blog…Hope they make it, well they didn’t. They bit the dust this week.
