VSG surgery Cookies and Sleevie Wonder


Dinner last night was a vegan tamale ( the bomb!!!) and PT decided that he wanted to make some cookies for dessert. When they came out of the oven, there was just a hint of a light brown ring encircling them while the middles were still soft. They smelled delicious! I grabbed two....then one more........and one more. And only then did I realize that I overdid it.
I wasn't the number of them, it was only 4, but it was the way that I ate them. I ate them SO fast that I didn't realize that they were cloying sweet and not really Sleevie Wonder friendly until I'd finished them all. I cookie monstered those things and before I knew it, I was sitting there with a sick feeling in my belly.
While I know that I will never be one of those sanctimonious, transfat crucifying people who eschews cookies and the good stuff for life, part of me wishes that I could be.
I wish that The Beast could be banished to some far away island or be cursed like Medusa to live trapped forever in stone.
I wish that instead of abhorring cardio, I adored cardio.
I wish that one instance of mindless eating could just be one instance of mindless eating instead of the potential first step down that slippery slope.
But wishes don't come true cause if they did, I would have wished those wishes a long time ago......and I never would have needed surgery.

This isn't just a woefest, though. Even with the cookie episode last night, my weight wasn't negatively affected. I'm lighter than I was yesterday and I could even potentially be out of this middle number by the end of the year. If not that, I know without a shadow of a doubt I will hit 120 lbs lost this month.  AND, I only ate one tamale last night. :)



  1. i love that episode... like it when they find cookies in his room lol!

  2. same here i love that episode. i know my aunt who had GB had a horrible time of it anytime she eats something like cookies. i've seen her get sick. i feel for ya!

  3. I had one of those days yesterday. I just got tired and overwhelmed. My poor husband, he didn't know what to do. He has been supportive of me and watched me work so hard. I brought home all of this crap and was so mad because I couldn't even eat it. Today is a better day. I hope not to have another one of those meltdowns again anytime soon. My cycles is just about over. I gotta figure out a way to make it through once a month.

  4. Don’t feel bad about eating those cookies. I think treating yourself once in a while is okay. Just focus on burning the calories you have consumed now.


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
