I have my 3rd appointment with the dietician and psychologist tomorrow, and an appointment with the Bariatric APRN. I should get cleared by them for surgery. The next step would be the pre-surgery class and to meet with one of the program's surgeons.
I will be at the appointments for about 2 hours. They start at 9:30, so I will be going straight to work, after. Because I'll be gone all day, I started to prep my food today. As I was making my lunch, I realized that I pretty much eat the same thing every day.
People say one of the issues they have with being on a "diet" in they end up eating the same thing and get bored. I realized that I actually feel comfortable and safe. I have an omelet made with one egg and 2/3 c egg whites and shredded cheese (less than an ounce) with fresh veggies (mini peppers, cucumbers, celery, grape tomatoes, or baby carrots) for breakfast; 1.5-2 ounces of sandwich meat and a cheese stick rolled up in a snack size whole wheat tortilla and fresh veggies; dinner has been chicken (4 oz.), quinoa or rice blend (1/2 cup) and cooked veggies. I bought some chicken sausages, and I have been eating them for the last few days. I have two snacks, and that is where I have the most variety. I am not stressing about my food.
