I decided that today being Thanksgiving this would be another good opportunity to share what I eat - post surgery Holiday meal!
(excuse the paper plate - thankfully my family is not hung up on fancy dishes lol)
My meal consisted of:
3oz of turkey breast
1/2 crescent roll
1 extra small klondike potato
1 tsp of cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons green beans
Now, I will fully admit I made a mistake today - I didn't eat all my protein first. I enjoyed the veggies and other sides so much, and found myself not able to finish my turkey. (Not to mention I found it rather dry but Karl assures me it was just me and that is was incredibly juicy)
I didn't weigh the turkey I had left - I am guessing under an ounce.
And that was what was left when I was done eating.
My meal totaled:
Thankfully, it was still a good amount of protein for a meal and meets the requirements.
This is the first year that I can remember not leaving the table having eaten 2-3 plates of food and feeling disgusted and ready to pop.
I ate till content and full but not ready to burst.
It's been a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots to be thankful for.
And as a little side note, I am down 81lbs now.
Monday I go back downstate to meet with the dietitian for my 3 month post op check-up!
And I'll leave you with a couple pics from today:
She was being such a goober when daddy was trying to take our pictures! LOL!
