Happy Hump Day, Kids! I hope you all had a fab Tuesday! Mine was good. The weather was finally nicer than its been--the majority of the day was cooler and drier and not so oppressive. I should have taken advantage and gone for an outside walk but I had a really lazy afternoon. Grim and I decided to start binging The Crown, and we watched four episodes last night! I am a total Anglophile, so I have been dying to watch this :) I have recently been taking a lot of "walking tours" on my treadmill through London, too, so this was a nice tie in. Today I am starting a new walking series through Jordan, which should be interesting!

Food choices yesterday were sort of terrible. I swapped out my planned dinner for chicken, which was fine, but instead of the healthy 0 point fruit that I planned to eat for snacks, I found myself buried in a pile of crackers and hummus. Then I finished the damn cake that was leftover from the cookout. At least it's gone now. I dreamed that I got on the scale and gained 50bs. That should literally be a wake up call, right?

QOTD: Do you boycott companies who are aligned to political causes you disagree with? I always have--"cancel culture" is not new for me. I remember going to see Nelson Mandela speak when I was about 15 year old, and that was the first time I had heard about consumer boycotts, and I was all over it. There are a lot of popular products and companies that have never gotten a dollar of mine.

Good morning all! Had a very lazy and unproductive day off yesterday. Today it's back to work. Accountability was pretty good again yesterday. I did get my usual sweet cravings, but was able to satisfy it with some watermelon out of the freezer. Who knew frozen watermelon could be so good? Especially on a hot Summer day. Very refreshing!

QOTD: not really....I'm not too big into politics.

B: premier shake

B2: coffee w/Splenda x 2

L: 2 oz chicken breast and a hard boiled egg

D: leftover creamy salsa chicken

S: L&F yogurt and fruit

Surgery: RNY on 1/23/19

I like the taste of watermelon but I have texture issues with it...I just don't like eating it!

Good morning and happy Wednesday!! Halfway through the week, yay!

QOTD - yes, always have! I don't know that it does any good, very often, but it's what I can do.

I am looking forward to that Jordan series, but I have two Utah ones left before I can start it so it's probably next week for me.

I am unplanned for meals today, need to get through some of the stuff in the fridge, fortunately it's all reasonable choices!

have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone.

yesterday was indeed looooooong. The upper GI went well but I have no idea when I'll get the results. Got a lot of comments about my digestive track since I had the WLSs. They had a few students so that was interesting. However it made my back hurt really badly from laying on the hard surface. Fun fun. It is still aggravating me more this morning. I have my pre-op appointment this morning at 10:20. I have to tell y'all that I don't have much confidence in my doctor and especially his staff. I feel stuck if I want a chance at relief. My surgery will be an hour or so and all together I'll be there about 4 hours. I'm nervous. This procedure is only addressing the nerve issue. Not the herniated discs or the severe degenerative disc disease. I know I'll likely always have some pain but this whole thing is making me feel uneasy. I don't like that. Sigh...

qotd: yup I do!

If you feel uneasy You can always opt out and get opinions from another doctor. How many Doctors have you seen for this particular problem? I think another evaluation from another doctor may put you more at ease. If you can deal with the pain I would definitely get another opinion.

Unfortunately no other doctors here that take Medicaid are taking new patients. It's pretty much my only option. He is a good surgeon but I guess I'm just being cautious. My mom likes him a lot.

sigh. My anxiety Is just eating me alive. Thanks so much for your reply!
