Two days ago I had my appendix removed.
That was Tuesday.
Last Sunday I became ill while making dinner
which I haven't done since I was pregnant,
and was unable to eat. I didn't eat at all Monday
and had surgery at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.
I was able to eat a little cereal for a late breakfast Tuesday,
a little chicken broth for lunch and a little sweet potato soup for dinner.
Yesterday I was able to eat the same for breakfast and lunch
and upgraded to an egg sandwich for dinner.
The same for meals today, but my appetite has started to return
I added a snack of peanut butter on bread and a fruit cup.
For dinner, the neighbor brought chicken enchiladas.
I ate some - even though they looked a bit calorie ridden.
This morning I weighed in at 181.3 which is down 2 pounds.
I haven't wanted any sugar all this time.
Can I keep it off and keep losing too?
Can I avoid the draw of the energy filled snacks that draw me in so often?
Time will tell.
And so will I
