Obsessing about food
Apr 07, 2010
I'm at work.... hungry... and DYING to snack
Apr 07, 2010
I made it back to work today. It was hectic getting my physical restrictions (no lifting/carrying over 10 lbs) acknowledged and documented by my company's medical department. Anyway, I'm here and I've been pretty productive.
I ate 1 yogurt for breakfast and turkey + cheese rollups (3 slices of deli turkey, 1.5 slices of low fat provolone) for lunch. I had some hot herbal tea after lunch and I've been sipping water all day (but I think I'm close to 25 ounces of water only.... I need to keep drinking!!!) and I had some protein drink (that stuff is gross and I can't drink a full "serving").
Anyway, there's food EVERYWHERE! Bagels & cream cheese in the kitchen/break room, chocolates being offered from various people's cubicles, beef jerkey in my office from before my surgery.... I have successfully resisted those temptations but it has been HARD! I'm sooooo hungry. Thanks, USAFwife, for letting me know that it will take a while to get the gheurelin out of my system - I really hope that's true because one of the main reasons I chose this procedure was the hope that I would not feel ravenous hungry all the time.
In other news, I threw up for the first time since my surgery yesterday. I had some rotissary chicken for lunch & I guess I ate too much (it was sooo good). When I tried to sip some water 30 minutes after I was done eating, it started hurting, and then I had to throw up. I had chicken broth for dinner in the hopes of getting everything to calm down.
As my mom says, "I just needed to share."
I'm so happy I did this for myself, but I'm still hungry

I go back to work tomorrow & I think my body is ready healing-wise (my incisions are not painful and are healing nicely), I just hope that I can get the eatting part right!
Wish me luck everyone!
