Just checking in....
« on: April 05, 2014, 05:08:38 AM »
Hi ya'all.....just doing a quick check in.  I FINALLY figured out how to tailor my diet to only be soft food for the jaw problem.  I'm on day 3 of successfully hanging in on that.  I weighed, and I have the weight I regained to take off, but I can do that. 

How are all of you doing?  Morgan, Susie, others????  This is a FTS official family roll call...

Yo ho ho Elizabeth.  Glad you worked out something for your jaw.  What have you been eating?

 First week good. Second week very minor gain. Third week - find out on Monday.

 How long will your jaw be out of commission?

Hi Elizabeth!!!!!
Nice to see you checking in... smiles!

Keep going, you know that if there's a will, there's a way

I have a Jobs Daughters Formal event to go to. Need to get my nails done. I only have one hand so it costs half price. I have to do this because my nails split, even when I took supplements. I've read that it could be an indicator of a cardiovascular problem, but I know I have one so I'm on meds for that.
There's a practice this morning, have to pick up one of the girls at 8:30 am and take Mary also. Going to wear an eye patch over my left empty socket so that it doesn't freak all the girls out, lol. They don't know that I have an artificial eye.
Can't wait to wake up Mary, I need her to put eye drops in it.

Doing great, Elizabeth! :) :) :)

I'm happy to hear you've discovered ways to work with the soft food limitation.
FTS is about as versatile as an eating plan can be! :)

FTS is definitely versatile.  How much longer are you on soft foods? There are a ton of things that you can work with on that one.. Sugar Free jello, whipped creme from the squirting can, mac n cheese, and more....

Hi everyone....sorry I didn't get back to answer my own post......duh....I didn't know what to say.  I was doing fine and had posted Saturday night and then Sunday night at work went on quite a bad sugar binge that lasted for days....so I've got to get back to the drawing board and do FTS Day 1.....I just weighed and didn't gain really, even though I ate the wrong things I didn't eat very much over all.  

Saw the jaw doc and she said to eat pasta for the next month until the jaw is better, but I'm going to get back to FTS WOE Day 1 again......UGHHHHHHHHHHH!  onward and forward.  I lost 50 on FTS last year so that tells me I can do that again but this time keep going on toward goal..

Hi Morgan -- jaw is on soft food -- she said the consistency of scrambled eggs or soft pasta until May 15th at least.  It seems to pop in and out on the left side.....And so Morgan how is your FTS WOE going?

Hang in there, Elizabeth! :) :) :)

Carbs (sugar) will not only effect your progress, but make you feel lousy, over time.
So it's best to stick with the program and avoid them.
Your metabolism will thank you for it! ;D

You know what to do.
And you know one thing NOT to do, is eat pastas!

Hi  im doing well and on day 2.  I'm having scrambled eggs for breakfast.  For lunch yestrday I had minced chicken breast and green beans, and then a thigh and more green beans at work.  I had about 2 ounces of cheese for  snack .   Today for lunch I had a protein shake made with HWC warter, 1 scoop protein powder (3carbs) and put about 4 frozen strawberies in that.  This afternoon and night at work I am repeating chicken n green beans etc.  Tomorrow is a sleep catch up day but asap I want to make fts custard, cheesecake and I have a grated baked zucchini recipe that will be soft and tasty.  So today (sunday nght) is when I am back to work on just a couple - few hours sleep.   This is when I went to local 7-11 and started last weeks binge.   The plan tonight is to stay put.  Will make myself a SF vanilla latte for a treat later.  

Thanks for being here and your support.   Even when I was ready to throw in the towel I couldnt with such kind and helpfulsupport  ..

And morgan how are you doing?  Hanging in there?

Hi Susie hope yiu are having a nice wkend

Hi Elizabeth, I'm back. It was a beautiful setting. Was foggy all around the camp Sunday, only got wet from concentrated dew falling off the tress. Fun but so tiring. Glad to be home. Also glad to have my eye back in.
Nice to see you eating well. Love Umpa's meal ideas.

Hi everyone   im still hanging in -- on day 4 now.  I did notice sunday night when back at work with only 3 hours sleep there was a time te sugar cravings came but I didnt give in .  I didnt leave the building to run to 7-11or anywhere that would have tempting junk. 

So last two days I have been earing scrambled eggs with butter and then meals of minced chickrEn and green beans or broccoli soup .  Also have been drinking low carb power shakes using a few frozen strawberries.    Each night I have had one square of very dark chocolate. 

So the good news is im losing again and the even better news is that I have hope again. 

Umpa:   you are right I need to make more soups/stews.  I eat the costco ready made cream of broccoli that is 3 net carbs per cup.  I want to make a chicken noodle this weekend using very very thin slices of mushroom to replace the noodles. 

Susie:  sounds like you had a nice time and glad your eye is back in.  My girlfriend in high school susie labarre had a glass eye. 

Morgan how are you doing?

Tony -- im hanging in there.
