Yesterday Vince went to the doctor for a routine visit . . his first since starting the diet. He had lost a bit over 43 pounds since his last visit and the nurse asked him if he had stomach surgery – one of those kinds where they reduce the amount you’re able to eat. He told her no . . just cutting carbs and exercising. He said the doctor went on and on about how great he was doing!
Next week he goes to his primary care doctor and they will do the routine blood work. We’re both anxious to see how that goes. I got for my PCP visit not long after I get home. I wish I had gone before I left for Missouri. I’m sure my blood work would have been better.
Today I ate lunch with Addie at school. The teacher said she had been so excited all day because I was coming for lunch. How can you not want to do that every day when it makes them so happy? Lunch was fried chicken patty (with breading on it), mashed potatoes, gravy and corn! To my credit, I did drink water instead of chocolate or strawberry milk but the water was about the only thing I had that was healthy.
Tonight Chad is smoking salmon and I’m having steamed asparagus and broccoli so that will be a healthy meal. It’s hard to eat no carbs when I’m here. I do what I can but I’m not being so strict that I’m not enjoying eating and enjoying things with Addie. There may have been a milkshake consumed one day! 🙂
