Yesterday morning, I weighed in at 165.6 lbs. That’s a total loss so far of 51.4 lbs.

I had to buy new bras last week. Because my bra size will continue to change, I bought several inexpensive ones at Target. They’re comfy, but I don’t expect them to last more than the few months I’ll need to wear them. Today I went through my closet and tried on every piece of clothing hanging there. About half went into the donate pile, including nearly all my pants and jeans. Of the remaining half, I expect most of it will be too big by the end of May. I have enough dress clothes to wear to work and just enough casual clothes for everything else. But it’s time to start thinking about digging through the racks at the thrift store.
Next weekend I’ll go through the dresser and try on all the T-shirts and leggings and other casual comfies stored there.
As far as food goes, I’ve involuntarily become nearly vegetarian. I’m unable to tolerate most meats except fish or shellfish, so my protein comes mainly in the form of shakes and bars. My nutritionist said the intolerance will probably resolve itself within the next several months, and it’s okay to use the protein shakes, etc., in the meantime. She also suggested that I try eating dark meat chicken instead of white meat because the white meat tends to be too dry. And she liked that I eat fruits and vegetables for snacks. Much better than my pre-surgery snacks of chips or chocolate or donuts (although I did confess to the occasional small bag of Fritos or a single Rolo).
