Since my return home from the hospital my weight has hovered between 196 and 198. Which seems to imply that I'm fairly firmly in Onederland now, not just visiting.

However my eating has NOT been following the EAT to LIVE program....mostly because every day in this week I've eaten out at least one meal....and I have NOT followed the guidelines. Today I actually had chicken on my salad. I've lost the sense of wellbeing I had when being strict on the program. This has got to end. This is no longer a case of "Just this once" --This is now purely failure to follow my parameters....and it has got to end. I haven't exercised. I haven't eaten right. And I am feeling it.

tomorrow I am going to stick to my guns. Tomorrow I am going to make a salad to bring with me to Middletown. I have a doctor appointment and my daughter's friend is driving. I'm sure they will eat out and I am not going to follow suit. And when we come home it will be close to dinner time. I need to have a plan. Maybe I will make the veggie wraps I have planned for this week.

For tonight I'm just going to have a smoothie. Enough excuses. Enough stalling. Enough stuffing. Just . Enough.

I need to re read Eat to Live. Maybe I will make myself a smoothie and read it now.

    That is a small piece of good news there with the Onederland. But so very hard to deal with when you eat out so much :( Good idea to take your own lunch, pretty much the only way if you can't find anything on the menu or don't want to be tempted.
    Thanks for my goodie, and deepest apologies for the error. Hate to hear you have been in a hospital for any reason :(
    Surgery for you is very scary and as much weight as you can lose and any strengthening you can manage between now and your date can only help. Ironically, you need to boost your immune system to help fight off infection. What the outcome might be depends on how bad it is of course. Physio will be tough and very painful, especially if you haven't been moving it much at all due to pain :(
    My poor friend just had shoulder surgery and now that the nerve block wore off she is in horrible pain. It must be pretty bad when the heavy stuff she is on isn't working :( She is puzzled because she had the same surgery on her other shoulder and it wasn't a big deal, she was able to go back to work in a few days. She didn't mention exactly what they were doing to it. Before surgery here, you get to talk to anyone in the health care spectrum related to your surgery you want. For me, the most important was a physiotherapist because they would be directing your recovery. They can also tell you things you should be doing before. Also occupational therapy to ensure you have all the aids around the house you will need and how to prep your home for what you need. If you can consult with them you should.
    You also need to boost your blood. Stress can cause it to be low. Iron rich foods are a must.
    Meditation, a good sleep if possible, just look after yourself as well as you can..
    Sending healing, soothing, comforting thought and gentle hugs...
