Working through It

Well, I have been doing this my own way and being very anal about how I do it...I have allowed myself a meal here or there....well, if you can call it a meal.  This morning was a meal.  I made low fat mini quiche and had two.  So, this gives me 5 grams of fat today.  Yesterday I had some fat free refried beans with a tbs of light sour cream and a tbs of 2% cheese and salsa.  That gave me about 5 grams of calories also.  Some other nights I had just refried beans, fat free of course.  I have a really good dinner planned for the 4th, with chicken, sugar free baked kidney beans, spinach, and sweet potato hash browns.  The whole meal has 6 grams of fat.  That will be my last meal before my surgery, which is on the 14th, so I will have 9 whole days of liquids.  I have been really keeping my fat low when I eat so I am sure I am still doing what I need to to shrink this liver and take off a few lbs before the surgery.  I have not been eating every night, but found I just had to at times.  I feel good about how I have handled this...just could not go completely cold turkey to all liquid diet.  And once I have the surgery I will not feel the hunger like I have through some of these days leading up to it.


  1. You need to do what is best for you. You are doing great!!! Hugs to you.

  2. I read the newer post and then I landed on this I'm just elated as heck that you GET it! Seriously. I had to come to an understanding of what my thinking was doing to my whole LIFE, not just my waistline/dress size. My attitude and way of looking at things had to go a different route and did.

    I'm really, really hopeful cuz I think you get it! Which makes the whole surgery WORK.
    k.....that's just my perception. LOL
    But gosh, I'm excited for you!
