Liquid Diet

Aunty Em mentioned that she wasnt jealous of my liquid diet. I have to admit, I was terrified at the thought of it. Just so you realise, I have to be on a liquid diet for around 2 weeks, and then move to mushies for another 2 weeks, and then start to move to normal foods.

As I said, I was terrified of the liquid food stage, what the hell was i going to drink? All i could think of was water and soft drink (which was obviously ruled out very quickly). So far, 3 days in, it hasnt been too bad.

My food intake goes like this:
Breakfast: half a glass of orange juice
Lunch: half a cup of soup (pumpkin, chicken and sweet corn, veggie - anything really, just as long as it can be sucked through a straw)
Dinner: half a cup of soup or some custard, depending on how i feel.

Yesterday i could only manage a few teaspoons of food at each sitting, so it took me 4 hours to get through my half cup of soup, which meant by dinner time i wasnt overly hungry, and just had 50mls custard.

It is amazing to think that just last week I would have drowned that entire 400ml tin of soup in one sitting with a bread roll or something. We had 'dinner' at my father in-laws house last night, and he made the comment that he likes cooking for me, as i eat so little, and I bring my own food :D

Suppose he has a point now.

Oh, and as an added bonus of the liquid diet, I have lost 8kg since last Friday
