My husband and I drove up to Mt. Rainier yesterday and went snowshoeing for the first time in 2 years! 6 and a half weeks ago my “fat snow clothes” would not have fit! Yesterday they went right on over my base layer with room to move! I am now down 30# 😀
We’ve decided that we are going back on Christmas for more snowshoeing fun!
Yesterday was also my first outing to a restaurant since the surgery. (I’d only consumed coffee with 1 scoop of genepro, .25 quest bar and a few drinks of an oh yeah protein before we went). I’m at the “eat normal foods” phase of the post op diet, and the restaurant that we went to has a typical american fare menu of burgers, sandwiches, steaks etc. I opted to order a grilled cheese (Cheese has protein…which came with a side of fries). My husband ordered “The Highlander” burger (also side of fries). The pics below are the minus one bite before and the after of what I was able to consume! It’s surreal, thinking that several weeks ago that plate would have been bare!
