Good News - But Nervous

Monday, February 02, 2009

well, I had put in a call to the nutritionist on friday about eating tuna fish while still on pureed, but figured that out myself over the weekend. She called me back today. While answering my question, she said something about eating very soft food, so I asked, "So I can eat something very soft like maybe Pot roast? " she said yes as long as it is very soft and I chew until it is liquid. Yipee, a few days early. For lunch I had 2/3 of WW Turkey and Mashed Potato meal I had intended to throw in the blender. Oooooh it was so good to chew. I put a little bit of Greek yogurt on the mashed potatoes, which I have discovered I don't mind. It is quite similar to sour cream. Tonight, I am having meatballs cooked in pasta sauce.
Now for the nervous part - keeping up with my portion control!

    Ohhhhhh....there's nothing better than actually getting to eat real food after all that liquid. Good luck on your new journey. If I can ever help you or answer any questions let me know. emoticon

    that is great! the paperwork my dr gives to his patients says soft food after 3 weeks, but he gave me the okay after 2. just take it easy- and it sounds like you are- because your tummy is still healing. start with 1/4-1/2 cup food and eat slowly, chew well, don't drink with your meals, etc. don't be nervous- you will be just fine!
