I said that! I don’t miss cookies!!! I haven’t even had a craving.
Wow, that’s nice! Prior to my sleeving, I was a sneaker of cookies whenever I could (couple times a week). Any time I had to drive down the hill, a big old Coffee Stand Cookie and a plain latte were my “fuel” of choice…it was like I was addicted or something!
Well, it’s been 5.5 weeks and I’ve been latte stand (cookie and latte) free and have no desire to make that stop at all! I’ve driven right by it a number of times without so much as a cookie induced tremor.
I’m down 28# as of this morning, and right on track according to statistics.
I’m in the “eat normal foods” phase now and haven’t had anything that made me sick, or hurt so I think I’m doing pretty good with this new sleeved stomach! Max capacity is anywhere from .25 cup to almost a cup, depending on what it is. Most things fall in the lower range.
I do get my 80g or more of protein in everyday, and usually the whole 800 calories, but I do still struggle with getting in the plain old water or drinking liquids to 64oz…I’ve never been a big liquid consumer and this is now my struggle! I’ve gotten the no cal flavored drops for water, we have crystal lite, I have teas etc, it’s just not all that appealing to me to drink all day non-stop. I guess I’ll just have to set an alarm and get my liquid in that way
Happy Monday to All!
