Yay, my stall is over (for now) last week I lost 6 pounds. Soft foods have been good for me. I've been averaging around 500-600 Kcals a day and I've been keeping my protein between 65 and 70 grams a day. I still can't seem to get my sodium below 2,000, probably because I'm relying a lot on deli meats and cheeses....but still does anyone really keep their sodium within the recommended amounts? I'm supposed to wean myself off the protein drinks, but I can't seem to eat enough yet to get the recommended amount of protein, so I have one shake a day still.
I've also started walking. A couple of friends (amazingly supportive, they are even convincing me that this is for them too) are walking with me in the mornings. We drop our kids off at 630 am (yes, as in the morning) to swim practice and we walk the neighborhood. I (as well as the other ladies) would like to eventually start the C25K challenge....but I need to ease my way into even that...so walking it is....I do hope to run the Turkey Trot (a yearly 5k on Thanksgiving Day, around Washington Park -- a very pretty part of Denver) with the whole family.
I'm feeling very energetic, healthier, and focused....thinking this surgery was a good move on my part!
What's new in my life? Well my eldest is 13 now. OMG. THIRTEEN. He sleeps all the time, and when he's not sleeping he's eating, and when he's not sleeping or eating he's rolling his eyes at me and sighs when I ask him to do something.
Do they just wake up knowing how to be teenagers?
