I think a little part of me has given up on trying to eat well.

It’s like I’ve been given this opportunity and now I just want to wait for the surgery to “sort me out”. But I know I can’t do that.

Hadn’t been to the gym for five days due to the hospital and getting the puppy and I just haven’t felt well for about two weeks, but I forced myself to go yesterday, I said If I go I can have some chocolate and it worked, but now I have to go without bribing myself with junk! Why is it so hard? I know what to do, it makes it so frustrating.

I emailed the nurse we had the meeting with on Friday to ask about the diet. I must say it’s worrying me alot. How am I meant to stick to a month of high proteins and low carbs. I haven’t been able to do it yet, so how will I do it then. I asked her if I could try the diet or did they not recommend it and she said that because it isnt balanced she wouldn’t want me following it now. I was a bit unhappy about that, I wanted a “trial” run.

My problem is, I get so bored with eating the same things, when I’m eating healthy I don’t want to have pasta cooked the same way every day and we seem to get into that habit  I want something new and different flavoured, but I just don’t know what to cook. I know there are recipes out there, but then if I don’t like them I’ve wasted money and time. So I stick to the same things and just get bored until I eventually give up.

One of the blogs I follow Dana, is on the pre op liquid diet, she sounds like she is doing amazingly well, I think she has a week left before life changes forever in a good way. I’m excited for her and her list of what she can’t wait to happen. She makes the diet sound so easy. I know mine is going to be different, but I hope I get through it like she is!

Ah well struggle on another day, off to the gym soon.

Cuteness time;

    Don’t give up. Try to remember the bigger goal. It has been really helpful for me to talk to all of you girls who are going through the same thing with me. It’s definitely not easy and you have to fight with yourself on every decision you make.

    You are right… only a week left for me until surgery. This liquid diet has been killing me but I keep reminding myself that I want this better life… even if it means I’m giving up a ton of things I loved before (cupcakes, ice cream, chocolate, fried chicken, fried anything, cream of crab soup, etc). But I know that I will be happier when I’m healthier. Make a list of things you want from this weight loss and put it somewhere you see it everyday as a reminder of why you are doing this. It definitely helps.

    Tonight I’m going to make a video with some of this stuff in there (struggles, food boredom, motivation, weigh-in, and looking to the future). I’m actually really excited for this video and I think that it might help.

    Hang in there. Take it one food decision at a time and DO NOT forget the bigger picture. :)

      Thank you Dana, that helped. I guess if it wasn’t hard, we wouldn’t be here in the first place.

      I’ll have a think about your list and write it down, I think thats a great idea.

      Gonna go have a look at your blog now and see whats new.

      Thanks again!
