Time To Fess Up

Okay, so I totally cheated on my liquid diet. Well, as much as one can given that my stomach really isn't ready yet for anything other than liquids.

I was so distraught last night that I decided it just wasn't worth being that upset when just a couple hundred calories might make me feel better.

So i dug out some little bit of ice cream in the back of the freezer that somehow managed to not get tossed during the big fridge purge. (I never made it to the freezer). Soooo, I had a scoop of ice cream mixed with some skim milk for a very watery vanilla milk shake. Not the best milk shake ever but for the moment it did the trick for less than 200 calories.

However, at this point in the game, I don't think the fix is that simple. So then again, this morning I was still in a rotten mood, so on the way to work I got a tall "skinny" mocha frappaccuno from starbucks. It helped. Was super cranky in my first meeting but now I'm finally feeling that sigh of relief. Again 280 calories for the whole thing. I decided if that's the only bad thing I add to my diet today, I'm okay. Not that it's not a slippery slope.

The amazing thing was that after having less than 1/4 of it, I was full! I haven't had that much of anything to eat or drink since I had the band put in to be able to notice. So instead of drinking the rest, I put it in the fridge to have throughout the day.

  1. Hi Heather! I just found your blog- congratulations on your surgery. Liquids are maddening and I know I took advantage of the"liquid at room temp" rule and had some vanilla soft serve one day about a week op. It tasted sooo good. Sounds like you're doing well.
