Saturday Six: Look What I Can Do edition

This post is going to be a short one so that I can get back to my grading, begun earlier in the day.

Six Things I Can Do Now That I Couldn’t Do Before Surgery
(in no particular order)

1.  Cross my legs.
2.  Run.
3.  Hug all the way around my husband.
4.  Stand up all day long to teach my classes.
5.  Walk long distances without being in excruciating pain.
6.  Look really professionally dressed for work.

Next Saturday, I’ll do a Six Things I Don’t Miss About Weighing 400+ Pounds edition.


Today’s food choices, from upper right: Trader Joe’s crab stuffed flounder; chicken, zucchini and onion stir fry at Genghis Grill; about 2/3 of a cup of chili and 2 saltines; multivitamin and calcium supplements x2, iron and B12 supplements.

Today’s nutrition was pretty good–high protein day, with 96 grams.  Carbs were on the high end since I had some veggies but also a sugary sauce on my stir-fry.  Fat grams were lower than the last few days at 37.  I ate my lunch leftovers for dinner and have enough for tomorrow as well.
