It's 15 days & counting!
Not much happening here except the Pre-Op diet & my pulling our tax information together. The diet is going well, so long as my husband doesn't cook here at the house. Then I smell it & want to eat too. I have only lost another .6 lbs so far, but with the liquid portion of the diet to begin tomorrow & last through the last 2 wks, I am hoping that I will lose at least another 5 lbs by then!!
By the way, if anyone is reading this that is a Pre-Bander & hasn't started their Pre-Op Diet yet & wants to know of a good Protein Drink. I have been drinking a great one. It is called Premium Pro Rated, it has 26 grams of Protein, & is only 160 calories per serving, IF you use water. I was using Non Fat Milk which made it 250 calories, but decided to cut it back to 1/2 c NF Milk & 1/2 c water, making it 205 calories per serving. For the last 2 wks, I am planning to cut it down to 1/4 c Milk & 3/4 c Water making it 182.5 calories per serving to keep my calories below 1000 with the added veggies allowed (so long as the taste is still good).
Anyhoo, I purchased this Drink at Costco for only $28.99 & it has 70 servings in it!!! The Protein drink that the Surgeon is selling is over $50 per container & only has about 25 servings! At the Steps 2 Success Class that we were required to attend, my husband asked the PA if he thought this drink from Costco was comparable to the drink they were selling, & after reading the label, he said yes, it would do fine!! So, lets seeee, $50 for less than 30 servings (& nasty tasting as well) vs $28.99 for 70 servings (& great tasting), duh!! OH & DID I MENTION THAT IT TASTES GOOD TOO??? Here are some not too great photos of the product that I took at Costco. They thought I was nuts, taking photos of the bag there (it was before I actually bought it, so we could compare products, etc.).
This shows the website on it at the top if anyone wants to look up the company & product information.
Have you ever had someone who likes to come in while you are blogging & begin to read while you are still typing? My husband just did it & he knows that it bothers the s--t out of me!! I looked at him & asked him, couldn't he just wait to read it, after I am finished? (he knows my blog address & reads it daily) He said, "of course I could, I just like to come in & irritate you"!! And he is sooo good at it! But, he loves me more than I could hope for, so I put up with his idiosyncrasies. LOL. Well, I guess I better go for now, lots to do!!
