This is seriously really hard! It's difficult to just uproot my entire diet! Needless to say, I've stumbled quite a few times over the last three or four days! I've gone from being afraid to eat anything to the mentality of "aw, who cares, I've already got the stones anyway". Definitely not a good thing!

On top of all that, I'm trying to get my final essays done to complete Winter Term, and star the job application process (I know that these types of jobs can take months before even being granted an interview!) and staying sane at my parents' house! it's really tough! Not to mention, no one seemed to care that I can't eat half of what is being made at home ! Grrr

I'm at the school library right now trying to type out an MLA paper in Spanish about Christopher Columbus and Bartolome de la Casas...It's VERY hard considering it's not only in "old Spanish", but Spanish is my second language! It's been about an hour, and I've only written about a page! Luckily, this thing doesn't have to be LONG, just GOOD. I'm a good writer in English, so I'm hoping I can take that skill and make a good paper in Spanish. I have this same instructor my other Spanish class, and I got a 97 on a composition I did for that class.

I started reading the book "Wheat Belly". It's very interesting, and it kind of high lights things I already believed to be true about wheat. I know that there are a lot of people out there that would totally rip on me saying that "whole grains are fine" blah blah blah, but seriously, it's not the same wheat from even 50 years ago. it's genetically modified crap that makes you fatter and triggers your hunger. It's in just about EVERYTHING, so as unavoidable as it is, It's going to have to be done. I can't have it much anyway with these gallstones.

I feel like I was just kind of tossed out on my own regarding these gallstones. I wasn't given a list of thing to avoid, most of that was done through internet research. I know for a fact that red meats will actually hurt! It was made evident last night. I also know that any generally greasy foods do it (that's kind of obvious considering the gallstones are made of cholesterol).

I guess what I'm saying is I'm frustrated, feeling the pressure, and really wanting to eat something terrible for me! It's not going to happen though.

Gonna get back to my paper, get it done, and rid myself of this awful term. Next term will definitely be better (especially because it will be my last!)

    Okay. You need to make a list. You need 21 meals for a week. Write down the meals you've eaten and liked. Repeat those until you find more. Now, what about meals you'd like to eat but don't think you can eat. Go to SP recipes and type it in. You will find 1,000's of recipes site with ratings to try. Some are dead easy.
    Try to figure out which type of person you are. Do you like large portions? If so eat lots of salads and veggies and fruits. Eat smaller portions of protein and carbs. Do you like smaller portions? You can eat more higher fat items in small portions. Do you know what your trigger foods are? If so, get them out of the house for now. You can introduce some of them back into your diet as you get stronger in your journey. Be sure to look for recipes for those times you are rushed. I use 1 can turkey chili, 1 can tomatoes, 1 can chicken broth and 1 can beans to make a quick soup @ 200 calories. It's high in sodium but keeps me from fast food in a pinch.
    You will figure this out and it won't take long. Keep pushing!
