I almost learned the hard way re the size of the meals in my new life!

I am doing very well on my new regime since my surgery. I have ben losing kilo a day and I think that is too much. My dietician said to get more protein into my system; mainly form lean beef, chicken fish and lamb. (Hey, what about trim pork?) Of course until next Thursday these amounts of intake have to be liquidised. Hell, that just ain't the same as eating the real unadulterated produce! Can you imagine some liquidized snapper fillet? What's the bloody difference after I have well-chewed it anyways eh? Liquidized mince?---like a meaty milkshake.
It's OK. folks. I can hack it for a few more days before I get to eat almost anything, but in smaller amounts. The amounts and getting protein into me? Well I did what I was told today and for lunch, I put a tablespoon of tinned salmon, hummus and cottage cheese on a little plate. It tasted mighty fine but you know what?---- I couldn't handle all of it. I ate slowly as required and had to leave about a third of it. I WAS BLOODY FULL TO THE MAX! A few well timed farts later and I felt good again. Maybe the weight loss will slow down. Shit, (I wish) am I complaining? Hell no.
I shall have a nana nap now and then take Perdy, my friendly manic (somewhat like the Dear Leader from North Korea!) Jack Russell down to the Onehunga Reserve Bay and let her run off her extra lunch (my leftover) with her equally Ritalin-starved friends. They are the craziest girls and boys I have ever met and I can thank them for all the new friends I have met as a result (plus a book---'Talk To Me,'----check it out on my website   www.authorneilcoleman.com) of those wonderful walks. Those friends have been so supportive and I love them all.
