Tuna Noodle Casserole~

Jan 09, 2018

Tuna noodle casserole is already high in protein because of the tuna, milk, and peas.  But I traded in the egg noodles for Banza chickpea noodles for even more protein.  It is a nostalgia food that i missed having since the sugery.  I thought i'd never have the chance to eat it again.  I also like to melt cheese on it.

Wow... Down to a size 18.  Haven't been a size 18 since high school.  Feels nice and validating that I'm doing what i'm supposed to.  I know keeping a good support system is key.

Everything costs so much.  I can't use the gym swimming pool because I can't afford it for a long while.  It was my favorite activity and best way I was getting exercise.  But I may have to find a new way to get to a body of water because even getting there costs too much since I have to take the bus.  I learned to swim this year and now I can't even get in the water.  


Everything's new...

It's like I'm a newborn. All foods that go in my new stomach have to go through a trial. And I'm punished if they fail. Foods I've eaten for years all of a sudden make me sick. And I'm not talking about junk food. I ate something sweet that had just a bit too much sugar and was sick for hours, never again. Wasting money on foods that I don't will stay down is the most stressful part. I was poor to begin with.
