So I track my weight progress and calories with an app called “Lose It”. It’s a very good app especially if you are counting calories. It is a free app which makes it even better. The doctor has asked me how many calories I am eating by mouth. I really had no clue at the time so I started tracking my meals.
So as I end the month of August, I am eating roughly 600 calories a day via mouth. Everything from yogurt, scrambled eggs, refried beans, homemade quesadillas, some Pho, bbq brisket, hotdog, pizza, cold cereal, apple sauce, smoothies, and the list goes on and on. The key issue is that my throat is still healing and therapy is helping me swallow but it is still weak. I am learning how to even eat slow now which is hard. Ever since I went to Airborne school, I learned to eat fast and quick and that never left me. Even out in the field, it was scarf it down and taste it later. Now I am the slowest eater on the table.
But the great news in all of this, I had cheesecake the other day and it tasted like cheesecake!!! Again, thank you all for your positive thoughts, vibes and prayers.
