can I just attest to how accurate this meme is? I feel personally called out...LOL

Good mornin everyone.

Woke up and weighed early and I've lost 3 pounds this week. I knows it's likely due, at least somewhat, to water weight but I'll take it. I'm trying to curb my snacking and eat slightly larger and more balanced meals. I've decided it's time to get serious. I still have slip ups of course but I also don't look at things as a total failure if I have one slip up. I am usually the all or nothing girl. My psychologist and me have been working on that. I'm trying to measure most things. I also have to remember that food has no moral value. A carb is a card and fat is fat. I have to choose what works for me.

Not a lot planned for the day. It's hot as heck here. We're supposed to be 106° on Tuesday and I just want to sit it out and protest. I'm NOT a fan of this heat. I can handle mid 90's down but this is bonkers. We're supposed to be at or near a 100° for over he next 10 days. For people who like the high temps....well you're nuts LOL

QOTD: what question do you get asked the most?

Mine is due to my height...do you play basketball? Umm no never have. I dislike the sport. I like shooting baskets and I was good at it but not a big sports person. They also wanted me to do shot put. Now if kick ball had been an official sport I'd be all over it.

B: JUST egg cup with veggies, cheese and maybe a sausage patty

L: not sure on this one...maybe GF chicken nuggets and some kind of veggies...if we run to the store this morning I might get some cilantro and do some black beans in the instant pot

D: if beans are made that and maybe I'll thaw out some of the taco meat that in the freezer

S: I'm not sure on this one. Thinking maybe a 100 calorie bag of popcorn or some protein chips.

here are some things I made a long while back. The eye one is creepy but I like it...it's a Swarovski Crystal.

That meme is definitely spot on for me. Congrats on your loss. It all counts!

QOTD - don't know that I get a lot of those. Maybe all the people who ask if they know me. I apparently look like everyone's acquaintance.

My goals today are movement and doing a better job at hydrating. Feels like I'm a little backwards from what I could sip in the hospital, so it's making me a bit nervous. That and the bruising coming up now. So...goals are to get in as much water as possible along with the 4 in 1 protein.

I won't be getting on the scale for a bit. Pretty sure I got something like 6 liters of fluids on top of everything there. Small steps for a while. Cheers!

If were you I would skip on the proteins with fiber. Your insides are healing. Getting I clear proteins was a challenge for me at the stage you are now.

Clear proteins with as little as possible crap added. I wouldn't worry about vitamins at least for the first 2-3 weeks. But that would be me. You need to do you.

Water, ginger tea, herbal or weak green tea. SF jello if you tolerate artificial sweeteners.

Good luck.

Hey there!

Thank you for your feedback. I was on the chicken soup protein in the hospital. That was a nice treat outside of plain water and I had little trouble getting it down. The two I'm on now are so much thicker because of the added things. You're not wrong...it's a pain.

They did tell me today to prioritize water if I couldn't get the protein in and to water it down more. I'm a work in progress right now. Focusing on water due to being a bit light headed.

Very much appreciate your advice!

it's actually going to OK weatherwise today (low 80s and sunny), so DH and I are planning to go out for a long bike ride. Other than that, not much on the agenda, and that's fine - I'm still kind of recovering from my trip overseas. My sleeping was normal last night (seven hours), but I'm still feeling drained from the jet lag and from being awake for c. 45 hours straight on the trip home. Oh - I'm also going to finish reading my book for our children's/young adult book discussion group meeting tomorrow. I'm halfway through - I should be able to fini**** by tonight if I put my mind to it (this one is a young adult book - if it was a children's book, it wouldn't take nearly that long!)

QOTD: the only one that comes to mind is what do I do with my time (I've been retired for four years). Oh...plenty! Some days I'm as busy as I was back when I worked!

B: protein oatmeal topped with plain Greek yogurt and raspberries. Coffee with half & half

MS: protein shake

L: probably a chickpea/miso spread sandwich (on 35-calorie bread)

AS: L&F yogurt and a skinny bagel, maybe

D: I'm thinking of making a pot of Indian bean curry - so that. No rice.

have a great day, everyone!

I totally forgot I'm meeting an out of town friend for dinner tonight at Torcheys taco place. I'm going to get a taco in a bowl or on a corn tortilla. I might get some refried beans as well to take home.
