I have not weighed myself in about a week as I like to weigh in the morning. But since I am up so early for clinical I cannot weigh myself and get accurate results. I am guessing around 24lbs total for the month. It is a little shy from my goal, and 25lbs in month 2 seems impossible, but hey, they are just guidelines, not rules.
I do know I have lost inches, as clothes look different on me. Even in one week for clinical I am noticing that my clothing is bigger, I am ok with that :), even if I didn't lose weight.
The part I am struggling is good and water intake. My amount varies. I can eat about 1/4can tuna and 5 triscuits, with maybe a cup if consommé. If I eat just tuna, I can eat about 1/2can with 6 triscuits (the small thin ones).
I do not get much protein in, and it s a constant battle. I tried to eat two serving of protein in clincal, but I cannot, especially with getting in my water. I average on 5-7 glasses of water per day, but my urine is still really amber in color. I am concerned that I am getting a really bad UTI.
I did just have a really bad kidney infection that cause my kidney to r palpable and caused extreme flank pain, it was absolutely horrible. So to even go in that direction again is not even an option.
Right food, how do I get so side-tracked? So on an average day I get in between 300-450 calories. Some days even less. I try to get a minimum 40g of protein, and whatever carbs.
So far my list of I tolerated foods are low, but here they are:
Laughing cow herb and garlic cheese!
Makes me vomit for about 7-8 hours. Let me tell you, this small tummy has difficulty vomiting.
Glucerna just smells really bad!
All in all I do kinda wish I would see more movement, I know unrealistic expectations. I am just afraid of it not working for me, which is a common fear among the bariatric community.
Anyhow, so sleepy, time for nap nap!
