I Need to Act on my 100% Commitment

Monday, January 22, 2018

Today, I will attempt to drive for the first time since surgery. One of the stops is the follow-up appointment with my doctor where he should sign the release so I can get back to work. Mixed feelings about that. I am still uncomfortable, though I can't call it pain. I selfishly hope he gives me a limited release to return to work but says I need to work from home. It hurts to wear certain garments!

Before surgery, I read about post gall bladder removal diets. My doctor said I could eat anything I want. But I have discovered the information I read about avoiding certain foods is right for me. Hence, my reading about clean eating. I am still learning about what that means for me and have made mistakes every day, but progress has been made.

Last night, as I tried to sleep, I realized that I ate two things yesterday that were not the best choices for me. Too many oyster crackers and a tortilla. I need to commit 100% and stick with it. The consequences of not doing so are worse than the choice made at the time. I did attempt to make bone broth.

Still and all, I feel much better than I thought I would. I actually hope they want me to step on the scale today. I am curious about that number!

Stay safe if you're dealing with inclement weather! Stay hydrated and keep moving! We can do this!

    You know Dr.'s get very little nutritional training (unreal he said that!!!). Glad you looked it up on your own. Nothing worse than the pain of finding out the hard way you ate something you should not have. Do not wear said garment -wear a baggy sweater and or vest to cover.
    Feel better soon!

    Hope your Dr appointment went well, and that you get to work from home for a few days. You will figure out the eating that works best for you. Just give it some time.
