Going back to work

My surgeons office has pretty strict rules about releasing patients back to work after surgery. And my employer also has strict rules about being released by your doctor before you can go back to work.

So even though I feel awesome and am having no issues at all, I can't go back to work until next Thursday.  That's the day after I see my surgeon for my followup.

I am soooooo bored.  And I need structure to keep myself on track. And since I'm still a month from my first fill, I also have no restriction, which means there is nothing to keep me from eating everything. And I feel like I am eating it all. Even though I'm tracking everything I just feel lazy and bored.

I need work to help me keep my eating in check. I'm also better about exercise at work because I walk at lunch.

So I hope I can get through the impending bandster hell for another month without gaining weight until I can start getting fills.

The next month my weight loss is up to me, and I don't want to lose the progress I made before surgery. I'm going to do my best to get my 60-80 g of protein and keep to under 1200 calories. 

Any suggestions on how to get through the next week till I can go back to work?

  1. Sometimes it helps me if I decide in advance what I'm going to eat the next day, and pre-journal all of it in My Fitness Pal. Then when I feel bored and like I might want to reach for a snack, I remember that I've already tracked my daily intake and I'm simply not allowed to have any more. Head games :)

    What kinda stuff are you eating now? I'm not sure what your surgeon's rules are...
