I have to admit that sometimes I am frustrated by the whole process. I understand that there is a method to the madness so to speak, but sometimes it's incredibly frustrating coming from the patient's perspective. I think that my frustration comes from the fact that I've seen the process with Pete in the last year and I know it, inside and out. Yet I understand that I am likely one of few people who have that perspective and they have rules.
So when she started to sternly question why I had not been back, I gave her the "I've followed my husband's plan in the last year where he's lost 130+ pounds" speech. And honestly, the information that she gave me wasn't anything that I didn't already know. I'm eating at full food again and it's a trial and error to see if there are things that I'm not going to be able to eat. So far I feel no real restriction, but fuller quicker than I did prior to surgery. I am anxious to get my first fill next week and see how that will change my eating.
Have you seen this tea?
Good Earth Sweet & Spicy is my new drink. I heard about it last weekend at the Prior Fat Girl meetup. I found it at my local grocery store in the decaf version. I LOVE it. It's spicey from the cinnamon, but balanced with sweet to counteract the tinnins. I love tea and have been a loose tea snob, but this is good. Really good. If you've never tried it, do so. I have a couple of cups a day.
