I had to do it....
I was doing so well too.
I had to email my nutritionist.
It felt like defeat.
I felt like I didn't know what I was doing.
I was doing so well on each stage. That was until I got to real food.
Here is the email I sent to her...
Hey Nutrionist (no, I didn't really say that, I called her by her name),
Ok, I need some help. I'm sad to have to admit it. I was on track and doing really well on the full liquid, pureed and soft stages but now that I am on the real food track since last Friday (yes I realize it's only been 4 days), I feel a little lost and I don't want to get too lost too early in the game. I kinda got excited about being able to eat again, I'm sure like most people do, and got off track. I'm down a total of 46 lbs (25 pre-op and 21 post-op - that's 21 in 5 weeks) but I plan on staying on track and doing really well so if you don't mind helping me, I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!
I am looking at your Daily Menu Plan for Weeks 7 - 6 Months and I plugged what I think would be something I would eat on a daily basis into sparkpeople (for some reason I like it better than my fitness pal, but if you REALLY like MFP better, I can switch). I **thought** I was supposed to be eating like 1,200 calories a day, but according to the plan, there is no way close I am getting to 1,200 calories, no the 70-90g of protein a day. So, what I can do to make this better????
I would only be getting like 435 calories and 66g of protein. Now, I would probably have some I can't believe it's not butter spray on my toast (not included) and also a tbsp. of ranch on my lettuce (not included)....maybe not that much for only an oz. of lettuce.
Thanks, sorry to bother you!!
Did you feel lost at the beginning or am I alone?
