Default Just signed on the dotted line tonight.

Seems strange to me but the counselor I talked to tonight sounded like they are going to start me on the green menu on friday after our meeting. Does that sound right. She said that it would be easier for me because I don't like raw veggies. (or cooked for that matter). I want to do this so bad but I just want to cry because I don't know how I am going to handle the veggies. My mom brought me up eating canned veggies so the "real thing" does not taste good to me. I have tried, I bought tomatoes, mushrooms, scallions, squash-2 kinds, broccoli and others....and I don't like any of them. I really am trying and I don't want to waste my money...I am just sooooo discouraged and angry with myself. I can eat lettuce all day long but I know after a short while I won't like it anymore. What is a person to do?

Congrats on your journey! Have you tried frozen asparagus yet? I like it. I've also mixed cucumber and celery with my tuna (and MRC mayo) to get some veggies down. I'm hoping for you that in time your taste buds will adapt. I know when I had to give up "real diet soda" for diet rite it was hard... but now it's fine....when I used to be able to drink milk and switched from "regular milk" to skim....that was hard but eventually grew to like skim better....etc....Crossing my fingers for you.
