I had a Fresca and an ice cream drumstick for lunch today after my 2nd vaccine. Ive only indoor biked two days, but i noticed already it was easier for me to get into and out of ubers today. Well, that would be with a weight loss of 10 lbs since xmas too. Wow. It was like i was twice as strong. But my back was still hurting as i was trying to self-checkout a bunch of crap at the drugstore.

Anyway, ice cream sure tastes good when its so hot outside. Heat index is in the 90's. I was gonna take the bus home (after ubering in), but i walked like one store length and said no i dont think so and called an uber. Got a guy who remembered me from pre-pandemic. I said, yeah isnt your wife a (my) hairdresser? He goes, geez YOU dont have to worry about getting Alzheimers!

Hi Unaluna and all:

So glad you're doing so well! We're at similar places as i've also lost ten pounds. Grats to us!!!!! Yeah, getting in and out of cars at higher weights can be a challenge. Glad it's getting easier.

I have a phenomenal memory too, tho i notice it's slipping a little now that i'm 54. Well, i remember all the important stuff still, just my showbiz Hollywood facts are going a bit but maybe that's more because i'm not into screen entertainment anymore tho i did adore "STARTUP" on Netflix, highly recommend that, such a savage and ferocious power struggle, my favorite kind of story.

Hugs to all!

Jane.

173.6 today with the bandage off. I donít know. I still swear I broke my metabolism.

So far today Iíve had a diet cherry Vanilla Coke from Sonic which had about 100 calories. Then I had a Mountain Dew which was 170 calories. I had a couple cookies which were 130 calories. Then I had a can of Hormel Turkey that had 225 calories. So Iíve had 570 calories so far. I plan on having some salmon for dinner and then some wonton soup for a snack. Thatís 970 calories so I have 430 left and I donít know what else Iíll eat today. Iím not very hungry.

I was 172.4 or 6 today. For breakfast I had a piece of avocado toast and a cold brew coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Then I got a bacon hash brown burrito from Taco Bell which I didnít finish. So far Iíve had about 985 calories and I have 415 calories left but I am not hungry at all so I donít know what Iíll be eating but I donít plan on eating again for a long time.

For the rest of the day I ended up eating a 125 calorie can of Hormel Turkey, a 120 calorie can of Tyson chicken, and a 140 calorie bowl of shrimp wonton soup with the broth dumped out. So I had about 1360 calories today. Most of my food was in the green zone. I feel full now.

I bought some green grapes and cherries and froze them. I put them on a baking tray and then put them into the freezer until they were frozen. Then I transferred them into mini sandwich bags. I have heard they are great snacks and desserts and they are also low calorie too.

I just weighed myself and I was 174 with heavy jean shorts on a T shirt. Last week at the hospital I was 182 with lightweight gym shorts and a T shirt and sandals. I know the last time I had surgery I lost 17 pounds just because of depression and lack of appetite and some disordered thoughts were going on as well. Today Iíve had 1029 calories but I had 2 full meals and some fruit. So it wasnít bad quality it was just a bit low on the quantity. Iíve been drinking water all day and using the bathroom every hour.

But this is the 8th straight day Iíve had my appetite under control.

I couldnít fit into these Jean shorts last summer but they were $10 at a thrift store and they still had the tags and they were Leviís with an original price tag of $50. This summer they fit pretty good and I can get them up all the way and button them.

I am just waiting for this heat wave to be over. I have air conditioning, but when the heat index is in the 90's, the air is just thick.

I am getting into a good rhythm with my meds and my eating. I got my 2nd vax on wednesday so i have been taking it easy. I got a delivery of shelf stable riced broccoli which was kinda expensive but maybe not really, its a good quantity per bag, so i am getting a lot of veg and for fruit i have canned peaches, grapefruit, and applesauce. I am getting some small cans of kimchee next week.

Mostly i am making an effort to not overeat. Which means preparing smaller portions, because whatever i prepare, i will eat! Yesterday i ordered jimmyjohns, a turkey mini and an italian mini for lunch. I used to eat 1 and a half regular french subs and two cookies because i was "hungry", then pass out. The two minis were light, tasty, and a perfect amount.

I lost some weight. I think it is helping that I've lowered my carbs. And walking the other day was helpful too. Too bad I hurt too much to walk today.

I didnít do too well today. Only 871 of my 1161 calories came from food. Then I had a couple little bags of Goldfish crackers that were 140 and 120 calories. I did have some grapes, a bag of steamed corn, and some canned meat. I just donít have any desire to really eat.

When I buy boxes or bags of Goldfish crackers that usually means my appetite is pretty messed up. I only had 64oz of water so I was below my water goal too. My size 32 pants were actually pretty loose today. The next size is 30. I hope I donít end up in the boys department. Iíve had to avoid certain brands of shirts because I donít want to wear boys clothes. I tried shrinking a couple of hoodies yesterday.

Sorry for the blabbering I feel high as a kite right now.

I was 170 exactly today. The numbers were moving and they almost settled on 169.8 before switching to 170.

Today I had 2 servings of canned meat, a little bag of Goldfish crackers, and an Amyís cheddar cheese rice and beans burrito. Iíll have some frozen grapes for a snack and then some more canned meat and a bag of Walmart brand steamed cauliflower and broccoli for dinner. Iím also going to try the new Mountain Dew from Whichwitch. I have down 1,105 calories.

I was still 170 exactly. Before and after I took a shower. This morning at midnight I went to get a piece of cauliflower crust pizza from last night and it was gone. Which was kind of annoying since I thought I was the only one eating it and I had planned on having it for breakfast and lunch. But I guess my brother ate it all. I didnít make a big deal out of it though. So I had a Mountain Dew and a package of Goldfish crackers instead. So far today Iíve had 3 unsweetened iced teas with flavor shots and Splenda from Sonic. I havenít eaten anything yet besides the Goldfish but Iíll probably just eat more of the canned roast beef Iíve been working on since Saturday. Maybe Iíll eat some of the egg noodles too. I just really havenít been too hungry. I have the money to eat out and get fast food but I just have no desire for anything.

I had 1245 calories today. But I donít know how much broth in chicken soup is since I drained it and just ate the noodles from 2 cans. I also counted my Mountain Dew and goldfish crackers at midnight. So in total I more likely had like 935 calories today. I had a couple pieces of fruit though and dinner was healthy. So I didnít eat that badly.

I was 170.2 today. So far Iíve had 2 little bags of Goldfish crackers and 2 bananas. I had a pina colada flavored Mountain Dew too. My anxiety is real bad and food is making it worse. I may try to eat an Amyís Burrito for dinner. Goldfish crackers, bananas, noodles from soup, and Amyís cheddar cheese bean and rice burritos are the main things I can eat. Today I can really only stomach the crackers and bananas. Itís been rough lately with food because of anxiety.
