No complications with the surgery, but diet wise, it's been bad. Well, I got the teeth cut out yesterday (wisdom). First of all, I wil start by saying my sabatoging husband took me out to dinner Friday, and I hasn't eaten much Friday due to nerves. I had a glass of wine ast the restaurant, and despite pre-looking at the menu online and deciding on Parmesan Crusted Tilapia with rice and steamed vegetables. The Olive Garden's similar dish has 590 calories. I would have been fine for the day due to my eating less. However, after the wine, I opted for the Chicken Scallopini, which consisted of linguine, cream sauce, chicken sliced, and bacon and mushrooms, topped with cheese. I also had a margarita, and 1/3 of an appetizer, which was fries with MAYO and CHEESE, and don't forget the green onion. Who puts mayo on fries under the cheese? Apparently Johnny Bigg's, but wow. They were really good.
In a nutshell: I blew it. My 1 week diet curse turned out to be true. Then, yesterday, I managed to eat enough pudding and smoothie from McDonald's, as well as a big (2 cup) bowl of instant mashed potatoes with butter and cheese, and a bowl of scrambled eggs, sausage, onion, and cheese. So much for me not being able to eat much! The potatoes actually hurt, but I am definitely back on track today. I will be able to walk again by tomorrow if not today. No exercise for 48 hrs. afterward.
Oh well, such is life. I made it 3 3/4 days on my plan, lose 3 lb. and weighed in yesterday (after one meal off-plan and around 2,000 calories for the day) at 138! Back where I started. Yesterday I weighed in at 141! I have been on pain medicine and unable to go to the bathroom at all for two days, though, so I am hoping somehow I didn't gain 4 lb. back just from eating around 2,000 cal. for one day and 1,700 yesterday. I am back on track today.
Wish me luck. Pray I didn't gain that weight back and go to be hungry all week for nothing. (again?!)
