The procedure went well, but having gone in at 4:30 and not gotten home until 10:30 pm, it sure was a long day! They had a lot of bookings and got behind so it took a long time to get through. Afterwards in recovery I noticed most others were famished, happily scarfing their sandwiches. I had indicated no carbs on my meal preference so they asked if a salad plate would be ok, and I said fine. I also asked for a bottle of water rather than tea, coffee or juice.
The salad plate turned out to be a few spinach leaves on which they'd put two thin slices of ham and a slice of cheese in two triangles, a bit of canned asparagus (yuck!) a couple of slices of beet, a couple of tomato wedges, and a pile each of corn and shredded carrot. I ate the ham and cheese, spinach, tomato, and a bit of the carrot but that was it. Surprisingly after two days fasting, I wasn't really hungry, but the others sure seemed to be. Carb withdrawal perhaps? I didn't see the point of eating anything else when I got home being as it was late and I really wasn't hungry.
This morning I stayed home again as I was feeling a bit headachy and crampy, but I still wasn't really hungry. I was pleased to see I was still in Onederland, weighing the same as I did yesterday morning, so that's cool. I then had a small ham and cheese omelette at about 8:30, and a nice salad with tuna and tomato for lunch. Tonight I'm making the Stuffed Pepper Soup with Cauliflower Rice I made recently and having some sugar-free lime jello for dessert. So it's fairly light meals today as well. I'm hoping to stay in Onederland from here on, but we'll see what happens. Given where I'm at in my monthly cycle, I don't expect any gains - if anything I would normally drop in a day or two, but given the drops I have had recently it's anyone's guess what the coming days will bring. Either way, I'm enjoying Onederland.
