Tame your sweet tooth challenge, Day 5
Friday, June 11, 2021
I'm feeling pretty incredibly lately. Yesterday I had some of the worst chest pains I've had in a long time (or ever) and somehow I made it through. My husband helped make dinner for me so I could rest on the couch and get some deep breathing in. It did stress me out a bit but I was able to maintain control and work through it without having to comfort myself with food. I just kept reminding myself that the more weight I lose, the less this will happen (for anyone asking my doctor had determined through an ultrasound that my chest pains are caused by my liver being engorged and is pressing on my ribcage) and eventually it will stop.
Sugar cravings wise I did wake up wanting raw cookie dough for the first time in awhile. I haven't had much of a desire for sweets in almost two weeks. I thought about having one last binge this morning before surgery but I'm not going to do it. I will always choose food over a healthy body and unless I make the choices to treat my body right before the gastric bypass I will never make the right choices after surgery. My commitment starts now.
