So here I am sitting wondering about the new year. Where am I going? How can I make the most out of my weight loss?
I am officially 2 months out today, and have lost 88.5lbs. I did not make my goal of 100lbs, but really, my weight loss has been amazing, and I cannot complain at that.
The funny thing is, although I have lost almost 100lbs, I still feel really fat. Sure my body does look a lot better than it did, but I still have 10 lbs left to lose to reach goal.
I am still struggling. I cannot get in my water nor my protein. How do people do this?
I also had a gall bladder attack a week ago, and a few days ago. So I went and saw my GP today and he feels that I will need to have my gall bladder removed.
This fears me, because I just got back into school. I will suffer through the pain to avoid surgery just so I can stay in school. School ironically is a priority of mine. I cannot quit now.
As for new years, I have two main goals. To get in 64oz of water or fluids per day, and to get in all of my protein. Recently I have been surviving on borscht and chili. For someone who does not like meat that much, I am struggling.
So for lunches I can have 1 piece of meat and 1 slice of cheese, which equals 10 of protein. Not too shabby. I might also cut my deli slice and cheese in half and make a well rounded meal. Perhaps add some Greek yogurt as well.
It occurred to me today that eating g so little is annoying. I was full after my deli ham and cheese, but I felt my palate was extremely overwhelmed. Chewing your food so much to avoid emesis, can make the taste extremely powerful. Because of this, I feel I need to add more variety to my meals.
As for water, I really have no idea how I am going to drink that much. I can drink a cup of fluids no problem, but water for some reason is hard to drink. It hits my stomach like a rock.
So I will end it here today, happy new year, and I hope to have a healthy new me next year.
