So today was a “hollow” day. I’d eat my prescribed amount of food (I’m at 1/2 cup now) and I’d feel fullish (still don’t get a real full feeling just that I’m satisfied) but shortly after I’d be hungry again. I ate about 1200 calories today and although I was told not to watch my calories yet I know this is more than most people are told to eat. I did have ground beef which even though was extra lean was still high in calories so I know that contributed to it.
I made a friend today who lives in Niagara Falls and they introduced me to a Facebook support group that is only for people who went to our clinic. Which is AWESOME because I know they have the same rules as me. They also have get-togethers and clothing swaps and some people have become really good friends. So I’m hoping I’ll make a friend or two in “real life” (as opposed to my computer only friends) and maybe I’ll get me some cool clothes too.
So… as I mentioned I ate ground beef today. I made tacos with homemade taco flavours. It was yummy and I handled the ground beef like a pro. The tummy wasn’t too sure about the wraps though and got a little bit of that full feeling. Didn’t even think to check if I was allowed to have the wraps yet, and turns out I’m not 😦 so I’ll have to wait till week 5 before I try again.
Nothing much else to report.
