Plotting along

Well I'm at Week 7 and after a 3 1/2 week plateau, things are finally moving again.  I've lost 6 lbs so far this week, thank goodness!  I was really losing faith and wondering why I had this surgery in the first place.  A 3 1/2 week plateau of losing and gaining the same pound is absolutely maddening.  

I've pretty much gone back to basics and have to admit that I think Steven is right.  I think I tried to do too much too fast and I've been getting the foamies or having to take some papaya enzyme quite a bit.  

I'm starting over with softer foods and will take my time from now on.  I wanted to try a little bit of everything and my pouch was screaming at me that it didn't like it one little bit!!  Okay, okay I'm listening now!!  

So shakes or greek non-fat yogurt for breakfast, a cheese stick or something similar for lunch and then mostly fish for dinner.  At least I know I can keep this stuff down.  

I'm almost down 100 lbs since I started all this.  It's just amazing to me that I've lost almost a whole person!!  

I'm preparing for my trip to NY and have found some new things that I'll be taking with me.  I'm in love with Babybel cheese.  50 calories with 6 grams of protein for each one.  Pretty good!!  I also have some Pure Protein bars.  20 grams of protein for each one.  When I'm feeling as though I need something to "snack" on, these are a good choice.  

Well, I'm headed outside to get some farm chores done.  I'm adding a ticker to my blog so I can track how I'm doing.
