I love eating. My size is evident of that and I have been really good with this whole pregnancy weight thing. I am still down from my pre-pregnancy weight (even if it is only 1lb down… it counts!) and I will be 21 weeks tomorrow. However, nothing tastes normal other than junk food. Chips, chocolate, cake, grape fanta (wow, how I wish I could have this every day! Once every week or 2 is just torture), and ice cream all taste perfectly normal and delicious. Fruit, chicken, steak, tuna, vegetables, greek yogurt, and almost everything else either doesn’t taste good or doesn’t taste right.
I have been obsessed with pineapple the last couple weeks bc it is the only fruit that tasted normal and was just oh so delicious. Yesterday I sat down with my bowl full of freshly cut pineapple as my afternoon snack took one bite and tasted mango. WTF?! I thought that maybe it was just that one piece but nope, my whole bowl tasted like mango instead of pineapple. Then last night I was lazy and didn’t cook so E and I had tunafish sandwiches which tasted horrid… even on a bagel with cheese on top. I went back to my pineapple (opened another container since I buy a lot of it fresh from the store) and that pineapple tasted like mango too!!!!
I. Love. Food. I want it back to normal. Either that or I want to be able to eat all the junk food out there to satisfy my taste-buds!
