Daleen - how long ago was your surgery? and i have to tell you that sometimes it's REALLY HARD to eat. but you have to make sure that you at least get in your protein. Are you using protein shakes? especially a low-carb protein shake?
protein is absolutely essential - you can't get it from a vitamin, and you won't be able to keep up the exercise unless you get enough.
Some people get head hunger - that feeling that they REALLY WANT to eat, even though they don't want to. Doesn't sound like you're one of them. at least, not now.
Just focus on today - and getting yor protein in. and try different forms of protein other than eggs and cottage cheese. some thinly sliced meats go down well, and cheese, yogurt, even mashed up lentils and other legumes.
this is NOT an easy thing to go through.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
