What a great relief to know that I am not crazy or alone with this crazy issue. Thanks to all of you for the verification of my sanity! I can honestly say that when I do over-do on the eating part I do feel nauseous.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and in the beginning, maybe the first month I was scared of turkey day coming up. Scared for the simple reason of eating and over-eating etc. But Im 3 months out and I feeling more and more confident with each waking day. Only for the simple reason that I have come across birthday's or office parties that offered just about all my favorite foods and I was able to turn them all down. My surgery is exactly what I wanted and I dont want to jeopordize my sleeve or my health or worse, gain weight!
Lastly, after having this surgery, I found that friends and family members would be scared to eat in front of me. What I told them is "go ahead and eat, pretend I never had the surgery, resume regular routine because I will always be around food regardless". Its up to me to turn it away. Everywhere I turn there will be a fast food joint, my house has all the junk food in the world because I have teens and a husband with a sweet tooth. My dietary lifestyle is just that, mine! I continue to make dinners that they love, i.e. lasagna, fried chicken, spaghetti, etc. I make it for them. I make my own healthy dish. There are times where they actually have tried my food and enjoyed it. My husband alone lost 10 pounds by being self-conscious on what he eats because he sees me doing "me" and my diet regimen. Good luck to all of you, and Im relieved that we can all relate because yes it is hard to talk something thru to someone who has not gone through it let alone know the emotions we go thru on a daily basis.
Have an amazing Tureky day all!!
