I've been SUPER tight again and have no idea why. So I was able to eat some mashed potatoes and a teeny tiny piece of turkey (when it was finally done cooking!). Later I had some no sugar added ice cream for dessert. That's it. The funny thing is I really didn't care that I wasn't gorging myself on stuffing and rolls. I was happy to just be sitting around the table with my family, laughing and having a good time.
The day after Thanksgiving I started to have severe heartburn, like I've never had before. In fact, we all went out for pizza and I ordered soup. After dinner I came home and chewed a handful of Tums, and drank water for the rest of the night. Yesterday morning I still didn't feel back to normal, and although the heartburn had calmed down, I decided to spend the day doing full liquids.
Here's what I had yesterday...
8am.: Protein shake
7:30pm: no sugar added ice cream with a shot of Kahlua over the top
What? Ice cream and Kahlua are both liquid at room temperature, so they fit into the liquid diet, right?
OK, not the best choice, I know. I was so sick of not being able to eat food that I just needed something that tasted good to me, and it had been 7 1/2 hours since I'd eaten anything. Don't judge!
So here I am Sunday morning, writing this blog and sipping water. I still feel way too tight and I'm thinking this is going to be another day of liquids. I long for those days right after my last un-fill when I was able to eat chicken! I'm hoping nothing is wrong and this is just a fluke of some kind.
I forgot to do my weekly weigh in yesterday so I stepped on the scale today to a new all time low I'm at 162 today which brings me to a grand total loss of...
I have to say that I was stuck at 65 for so long that I thought that was where I would stay. I think I had forgotten what it felt like to lose weight, and I like it. I have a new found commitment and I can see 160. I can do it!
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Have a great day!
