Today i woke up and a felt great. Im truly blessed to have been able to have this surgery, I hear many people on their second week having a lot of problems. Im Feeling normal and almost no pain (A little back pain). The fact is i have not lost significant amount of weight (Currently 415 From 460). I cant wait to continue shedding pounds but today i realized that my life has change, my relationship with food has changed, I mourned the foods i will not eat for 5 minutes and embraced the food i eat now. Something that i did not do before has incredibly changed, Im actually cooking for myself and enjoying the process. Im becoming quite a chef. Since im only on my Puree food stage there is not much to do but i enjoy playing around with the little i have. For breakfast i ate a scrambled egg (Season with Cilantro paste, Parsley and tab or rosemary before going in the pan). For early lunch i had a hardboiled egg (halfway cooked yolk) and 2 oz of Pea puree my second lunch i had a poached egg. For dinner im thinking of egg drop soup and Garbanzo Puree (Dont know the name of this pea in english). Since i eat so little im focusing on protein (egg) trying not to have to drink as much protein shakes. Coming back to my point, before all this would have been foods that are not good for me. Who said that i could not eat tasty foods even at this early stage. Im thinking of taking cooking classes, been Cuban i love bold mediterranean flavors and i realize now that the food i ate before was almost flavorless. I continue to be exited at the prospect of loosing weight, i never thought i would be exited about food.
