WLS Update 1/17

I am so excited about my journey. As of last Sunday I had lost 12 pounds. I am trying only to weigh once a week right now cause I can be obsessive. It helps that I don't have a scale in the house. I may break down and get a scale. I think it could be motivating to see it move. Who knows.

I do get most of my fluids in a day but not the protein. 50 grams of protein seems unattainable right now but I am trying. I can't believe it's so freaking hard. I almost can't stomach a protein shake though. Yesterday I drank two low carb slim fast so that helps and the day before I drank protein bullets. I almost threw them up but I got it down. They tasted like cough syrup. Nasty. So again trying to get the protein in while on liquids is overwhelming. I read people say it was hard but never realized until I was right there. So I've been focusing on fluid intake and I'll worry about protein next Wednesday when I started blendeds/soft foods.

My tummy does like popsicles & pudding (SF of course), and I had soup last night at Olive Garden. The Gnocci. I just picked out the dumplings and chicken and ate the soup and it felt so good in my tummy. I do the same with Hot and Sour right now - just drink the broth.

I just drank a cup of HEB Mootopia milk. It went down bad the first sip but then got better. That was 12 grams of protein so I am going to try to drink a cup a day. I also made my pudding with it and stuck in a Nectar chocolate truffle sample.

Anyway I just wanted to update. It's certainly not been easy (I wasn't prepared for how tired I'd be) but it's not been awful. I am so excited I did this!!!
