I had Tylenol for breakfast, and I am SO FULL. That might be a tiny exageration, but I honestly love that gurgly feeling I get when I drink water after a fill. My lower stomach is grumbling madly, but I'm not head hungry in the least. I'm so jealous (but at the same time happy for my friends) when everyone else has such amazing restriction. Today, it's my turn! Hooray!
I'm on day #2 of no diet soda. Yesterday my surgeon and I discussed possible reasons for my lack of weight loss over the past several weeks. While I admittedly am not eating 1200 calories a day, I am averaging 1400 or 1500 which is still excellent for weight loss. On a really bad weekend day, I may get 1900 calories... but mathematically that should still be enough for a small loss. The ONLY thing that is different is that I've upped my diet soda consumption. He is vehement that diet soda inhibits weight loss for some people, himself included. I know this has been studied, and that the phenomenon exists, it's just that no one is sure why this is? Some of you might know more about this than I do. Bottom line for me is, every time I cut out the stupid diet soda, my scale goes down.
I'm scared about getting my ducks in a row for my surgery... afraid something is going to go wrong somewhere... but I'm feeling the fear, and doing it anyway.
Tylenol. Oh, and greek yogurt w/ honey. I'm going to attempt to suck on a Zone bar at lunch. And water, lots and lots.
