soft foods...yay

Starting weight 318
Last weight 298
Current weight 297

I didn't lose as much as weight as I wanted this week which was frustrating. But, I was thinking about the past when I would come to a stand still so early in my weight loss, I'd give up and go back to my old ways...the difference now is I can't.  This is why this is a good thing. I'm starting to feel positive again even though I periodically have those periods of where I thought to myself, "seriously I did this to myself for only 20 lbs"  I'm very good at fatalistic thinking -- it's a talent really.

Starting today and for the next three weeks I get to have soft diet just expanded and I'm so happy!  I stay at one ounce every two hours and up it to 2-3 ounces every 3 hours...the goal is to keep it at 2-3 ounces every 3 hours for at least three months.  

What was my first meal? Well I had a coupon for some Morning Star products and found these in the freezer section and thought they looked yummy so I bought some in anticipation of this day...

Half of one is 2.25 oz, 35 kcals, and 4.5 g of protein.
Since egg whites gave me a little trouble in the first week I was on "mushies" the nutritionist said to take it easy with the animal proteins and go at it slowly.  I will probably have to supplement with a protein shake until I can get on more animal proteins.

Oh, and it tasted yummy.  It was a good first choice.


  1. lol - I felt like my life had all new meaning once I was able to start soft foods... lol I am getting ready to do it all over again but this time I know it's worth it. :)

  2. mmm I loved refried beans and cheese and mashed potatoes..still do!

  3. Yay for mushies! Can't wait until you start on solids. It'll be like manna from heaven. :)
