I miss chewing!

Well, my first week or so of the pre-op diet went well.

I was actually really proud of myself!
Even on vacation with my sister and mother, I did well and stuck to low-fat/low calorie meals.

Yesterday, I started the liquid only portion of the diet.
This part is not so fun.
I never realized how much I'd miss food.
Note.. I did NOT say I missed something in my stomach, I miss food!
I miss chewing, and the act of eating.
The taste.
The texture.
The family dinner ritual.

Cooking yummy meals for my family then sitting down to eat watery broth doesn't bring joy to my soul.

But... I am doing this.
And... I will keep doing this.
And... I will continue to bitch to you about it.
So... I'm thinkin we all have something unpleasant to deal with don't we?


  1. I dread having two weeks of liquid pre-op. Hang in's all going to be worth it!

  2. I am embarrassed to admit that one week post op I chewed some pasta salad (just one bite) and then spit it into the trash.

    Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
