Yesterday I had the colonoscopy. It wasn't that bad except for the laxatives that were required days before the prep day and on the prep day the drinking of all the mixed potions(powdered Miralax)plus MORE laxatives and the drinking of the various clear liquids. I do not want to look at another bottle of Gatorade! During the procedure the doctor found 2 small pollops which the doctor wasn't very concerned about. Last time there was one precancerous pollop found. They will biopsy the two and I will receive results in a week or 2..I craved Shrimp with broccoli and rice so last night that is what I had as my "last meal" til Thanksgiving(IF I eat on Thanksgiving). I say that because I know with every non-sanctioned bite of food I always weaken my resolve. It's like sand on a coastal beach washing away with each wave. Each bite does the same thing to my willpower. I know from my experiences in the past that each social engagement each meal messes with my progress more than weighing in everyday, more than watching commercials, and more than nasty comments. I need to say "NO" to food. This is hard because my husband has to have food in the house. Fortunately for me he will cook for himself. He is quite handy in the kitchen..canning soup, freezing vegetable from the garden, baking, and grilling. He can do it all! I think he would prefer to have a healthier wife, and one without certain health issue so I need to work this plan for him, too.
I poured out my expected water intake into 32 ounce bottles. I made a list of goals for today. Everyone have a great day.
