I'm struggling. I'm frustrated. My restriction is worse than the up and downs on a roller coaster. One day I can barely eat anything (meaning everything either has a hard time going down or as soon as it goes down, it gets stuck), the next, my restriction feels pretty normal. Things I was able to eat a week ago, I can no longer eat...Is this normal (it's been 4 weeks since my last fill)? I have an appointment for a fill on Thursday.
So here are some things on my "off-limit" list:
- bread (any kind unless toasted)
- leftover chicken or chicken that is not moist (by the way, moist is perhaps the worst word in the English language, don't you think?)
- skin on potatoes
I am also struggling with bite sizes - I think for the most part, the reasons I get stuck are because my bites are too big. Any tips for this? I did pretty good at Easter dinner yesterday - cut my ham into tiny "toddler" size pieces and ate my salad one leaf/vegetable at a time. Definitely need to focus and get better at this.
On the up side, I've dropped 2 pants sizes and 3 shirt sizes. Still trying to only buy a few things here and there. I got this really cute cardigan from Banana Republic the other day:
