Saw my nutritionist Tuesday and doctor yesterday. All is well. Almost 15lbs are gone.... thankfully off legs and hips. It used to be I`d lose first off breasts and face which didn`t improve my looks much. Nice it`s happening the other way now.
Moving from all liquids to purees and mushies... I can join my drum group on Saturday night, but can`t do much lifting for another 10 days... I do miss my weightlifting workouts.
My first egg was a disaster... the first time I vomited since the surgery!.. My nutritionist had told me I could have scrambled eggs, so I hurried home and made one. I scrambled it fine and chewed it really a lot before swallowing, but I ate too fast I guess and got into trouble. I didn`t even eat it all, but should have only eaten half or less, I guess.
Today I tried an egg again scrambled with 2T of cottage cheese. Wonderful! Salty and tasty and full of protein! I ate half...waited a while then the rest. No problems.
For lunch I have some chicken breast pureed already with a little soup. Getting organized. I have to go back to work next week and I need to take my meals to school for a while. That`s going to take some thought as I`m gone 8-10 hours from home.
A little without energy... but not too bad. More potassium, maybe.. Here in Brazil Agua do coco.. Green coconut water is a wonderful source of protein and other nutrients. ....
