Today I went back to the doctor for my follow-up appointment and he said everything is looking good with my foot so that was encouraging.  Eating is a bit hard due to needing to get my wisdom tooth removed, but im getting used to eating only on one side of my mouth.  I want to heal a little more from my foot surgery before I have my mouth surgery.  I have started noticing my appetite is really opening up, I wake up with insane cravings.  Today I woke up wanting and craving a 5 Guys Burger and wanted one all day long but knew it would be too difficult to eat with my tooth.  And I had dreams all night that I was eating all sorts of delish things....I really hope my increased appetite and cravings stick around for when I can actually eat those types of things.  Looking back to the time I had gained my weight I remember there were 7 things that really helped the process:

1. Weight Gain Drinks
2. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwhiches
3. Creamy sauces and condiments
4. Baked or Mashed Potatoes
5. Counting my calories
6. Soda
7. Consuming more then 2,000 calories

Today I did 6 out of 7.  I wanted so badly to do this process daily without soda, but I don't know.....dinner just aint the same without it.   I am drinking more water then I did before. The number on the scale isn't moving as fast as I would like.....but I feel fuller when I eat and therefore heavier by the end of the day....so hopefully in the next couple of weeks my morning weight will be what my night time weight has been.


  1. You go girl, keeping my fingers crossed for you :) I'm gaining weight myself too, I was like 135 pounds in March and now I'm 147 pounds. Still long way to go tho, coz I'm very tall (5'10") and therefore want to achieve at least 165 pounds.

    I'm eating pretty much the same like you, using all your tips :) What I found very useful is BRAZILIAN NUTS. 100 g gives 680 kcal and one pack is 200 g, very easy to finish it in one day and get your 1360 extra calories. I also try to get 2000 kcal from food, then add 3 liquid nutritional supplement drinks (3*400=1200), then nuts (1360) and maybe a nice belgium waffle (400) with cream, strawberries and a glass of milk (+100ish). And look, I've consumed 5000 kcal a day very easily! :)

  2. wow..."runs to the store to buy Brazilian nuts*..lol

    Breakfast- ham sandwich and orange juice
