sometimes uneventful and other times unbelievable!

It's been a little over (4) weeks since my gastric bypass surgery.  As of this past Wednesday I have lost 29lbs. I can't tell you the last time I lost 29lbs so needless to say I'm thrilled.  I would be lying if I told you that past two weeks have been easy but they have not.  Not that I've had anything bad to happen or nor have I been sick, but it is a full time job in learning how to eat, what to eat, and how to keep up with everything you have to do.  The liquid diet then the thicker liquids I had to endure at first really wasn't bad at all.  Then comes the softer foods and that hasn't been bad either.  Right now I have to work on getting in 65 grams of protein a day and this is very very important.  Then there is 64 oz of water a day... plus breakfast, lunch dinner and a snack in between meals.  I feel like I'm always either drinking or eating.  I am finding that fish (for protein) is the best thing for me. I have also found a few restuarants that actually offer what I need and are willing to cut the portion in half to accomodate me.  My favorite Mexican restuarant offers an awesome chicken soup that is perfect for me and they cut give me half the portion and only charge me for half.  Pretty nice huh? I have more days on the lack of energy. Today is one of them. I am very very tired today.  I don't really feel bad...but I'm just tired.  So hopefully over the weekend I can catch up on some sleep.  I'll post some pics later this weekend...

Hi Mary!

I was just sitting here and started thinking about you and wondering how you're doing.

What is your new total?
Were the holidays difficult for you?
