After two years of following the Girl Scout cookie diet I have realized that no matter how hard I try, that diet just doesn’t work for me.
I recently stumbled upon the Oral Surgery Diet and it’s a charmer. While individuals differ, for me this diet may work because the surgery is divided into parts that will be accomplished over a couple of months. Originally, I was told it would be done in one day, in one fell swoop. Alas, my teeth/mouth are too screwed up for that. So it’s one visit at a time. It could be done slightly faster, but I’m going on a cruise and don’t want to be in another country if something goes wrong.
The last day of school a couple of my friends and I went out to lunch. We are in the same age group (50s-60s) and laughed because our conversation quickly steered to what doctor appointments we have coming up, what meds we’re now on and what our current aches and pains are.
And, of course, our weight. The Oral Surgery Diet is really working for me. Loss of appetite and not being able to eat almost anything that isn’t soft food is helping me to shed pounds. But I stop short of actually recommending it to anyone.
I’m the Bionic Woman, replacing one body part at a time. And that’s only partially tongue-in-cheek.
