Here I am at day two of my 10 day liquid protein diet and I am insanely craving carbs. I could live without bread but I'd probably pay $100 for a bowl of cereal right now.
I totally understand the purpose of the 10 day plan. I know that it's best to shrink the liver so the surgeon can get to the stomach easier, and have more room for the instruments. I watched the procedure on Youtube. I get it. However, I don't care, I want carbs! I hear it gets better after day 3, and I sure hope so. My husband will probably move to a hotel if it doesn't!
We just got back from a family wedding in Michigan this weekend. I was so tired and weak on the car ride home, and very thankful that my husband was driving. I had lots of cut up melon for the road trip. Would you believe I actually got sick of fruit!? I never thought that was possible. We stopped at McDonald's for a potty break and even though I NEVER eat there, the food suddenly smelled delicious. I think I would have eaten a burger if given the opportunity, and you know how I feel about meat!
The ray of light to this day is that my beautiful husband remembered that I can have sugar free popsicles. I can't believe how excited the mention of a popsicle made me. I couldn't wait to get home and we all had popsicles BEFORE dinner. That doesn't happen in our house. Then, my husband says "Well, I didn't have much lunch today so I'm going to eat an early dinner". Ha, HE didn't eat much lunch? How about I DRANK my lunch. So he makes me laugh by saying "well, you paid for the all you can't eat buffet". He's right. I'm paying BIG $$$$$$ for this procedure, and I won't screw it up!
So, tomorrow I'm off to the store to stock up on more protein powder and fruit. I CAN do this...I CAN do this...
