No Fat/Low Fat Eating - Oh I'm SOOOOO Hungry!!

>> Tuesday, November 2, 2010

I am on day 2 of the no-fat/low fat eating plan (hate to call it a diet because let's be realistic, it's the way I'm supposed to be eating anyway and haven't been) so I don't have anymore gallbladder attacks before my next doctor's appointment on Friday.  So, how's it going so far?  It stinks.  Seriously, I feel hungry all day long. 

I miss fat in my food.

I miss melted butter in every nook and cranny on my english muffin.

I miss chocolate candy bars. 

I miss pizza. 

Oh boy do I miss chocolate and pizza!! 

I miss feeling full.

I'm assuming it is my gallbladder that is causing me all the pain so I'm eating like it is to prevent anymore attacks.  I'll find out more on Friday. 

What is really sweet is my teenager told me last night that since I can't enjoy so many foods right now, she is going to eat like I have to eat so I don't feel left out.  She actually ate oatmeal for breakfast!!  She said she'll pick the salad at lunch instead of the nachos.  She has slept in my room for two nights in a row so she can "keep an eye on me."  She was upset to see me seriously crying the night before last when I was in so much pain (crying during sad parts in movies doesn't count).  She said she's only seen me cry once before and that was during an argument with her dad years ago (about the ex/stepkids of course).  She remembers listening on the stairs when she was supposed to be sleeping.  I guess my crying really hits her hard.  She's being so helpful.  She got all her siblings ready for school yesterday too!

I have good kids.  :)

Your teenage daughter seems to be very mature for her age. You obviously have raised her well. Hope you feel better.

Thank you! I'm really lucky to have such great kids.

I'm feeling better - no more attacks. Of course, I'm not eating anything with fat in it to bring it on. I feel so hungry, lol!

Your teenager is so sweet and caring. It is great that she wants to eat like you and keep an eye on you :)

I am trying to eat better too (lots of stomach issues, you don't need details, trust me) and it really does make a difference. Hope you keep feeling better.
