Friday

                                  

   Wow it was 60 yesterday and today 24 when I woke up.  What a change.  I am freezing.  Hurry up spring.

   I am feeling better today.  My incision looked very angry today when I first got up but after the shower and being up it looks slightly better.  No longer draining which is good.  It is a good thing probably that it is sore because I am so tempted to hit the gym.  I just want to walk and warm myself up.

  I had shredded wheat this morning with honey and nuts.  It is the same calories as the other plain but has slightly more sodium.  For lunch I made a wrap.  I have Danish sausages out thawing for supper and I plan on steaming a huge pile of broccoli to go with it. It will bum my son out but I love it.  I still have 2 apples left and some applesauce I want to get rid of by Monday when I start phase 1.  I am the only one in the family who seems to eat fruit.

  I am upset that all that pineapple I ate and drank for the last 3 weeks didn't prevent my incisions from opening up.  The doctor said it wasn't because of my working out which made me feel better.  She thinks I am sensitive to the steri strips.  Now I am mad at myself for not taking them off when they started to bother me so much.  Maybe my incision wouldn't have opened up.  After my shower I laid on my bed without a top on to let the air get to the incision and hopefully dry it out.

    I wish South Beach had an actual place I could go to to weight in like WW.  My insurance would cover it then.  I think if I had to go weight in front of people I would do better.  Cheat less often.  WW is to expensive for me even with my insurance paying for alot of it.

Have you ever heard of TOPS?  I think it's Take Off Pounds Sensibly.  One woman on the Healthy 100+ WL board (I'll email you the link, it doesn't want to "drag" into here) has been doing it very successfully with a program designed by her doctor.  A couple other women on the board are also going to join.  If I remember correctly, each chapter makes it's own rules for fees but the one woman there pays $1.50 per week (nope, that wasn't a typo!) and there's a "fee" of $.25 when you gain from the previous WI.  Here's the link for the TOPS organization if you want to see if they have this where you live.  http://tops.org/  This is the kind of accountability and support you mean, right?  A group of people, someone else weighing you once each week.  

That's too bad you're the only one eating fruit!  I wonder if it's a guy thing.  Same thing over here and at my parents house, my Dad eats fruit in the form of pie or fruit breads.  =)  Or maybe some jam on a PB sandwich!
