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.
