10 pounds?

On Wednesday, I made the hour drive for my 1 month check up. I lost 10 more pounds. That's a total of 39! Down to 307.something, not quite 40 pounds. 10 pounds in a month, am I missing something? Is that good? I don't think so. I guess it is if you look at the big picture. Dr. said it was normal. Ok, so I'm normal, that doesn't make me feel much better.

A new diet! I can add soft food...cooked chicken and turkey(no red meat), soft fruit(no apples...too crunchy, no oranges...too pulpy, no grapes...tough skin), cooked veggies(no raw or salad), and pasta(cooked well and cut small). Of course I can still have all the other foods...pudding, jello, cottage cheese, peanut butter, tuna fish, egg salad. I'm so glad!

Unfortunately, I've tried a number of protein drinks, and I don't like any of them. I am able to add bars this week, so maybe that will help. I've tried protein powder, and it's ok. It tastes bad, but it gives you the added grams of protein if you are lacking. We'll see.
