  5. My favorite food was pasta and meatballs and sasuage.. I could eat that every night.. I love pasta prob partly how I put so much weight on.. So tonight for dinner what did my family want?? Pasta and meatballs.. ugh. And bisquits.. so I of course made it for my family. Tasted a bit of my meatballs and some sauce and that was it. And thought if this was before my surgery I prob would have definitely had two big plates of that for dinner ... What was some of ur down fall foods ???

    Do you chew and spit?

    Hi there..its funny u posted this because the past two days i have done this twice. We went to dinner last night . My husband had some thing fried that he wanted me to taste so I did but didn't want to sallow it so I spit it out and today my mother in law made these delicious looking little sliders so I just wanted to taste it so I ate half of one chewing and spiting... i felt like this is what some girls w. Eatting disorders do.. it kind of scared me in a moment but made me realize I can still taste certain foods just have to watch on swallowing them.. it is kind of crazy though...
  10. So tonight was my first time dining out w. My family.. we went to a local restaurant. I was excited but nervous.. I ended up ordering shrimp tacos. W. A side of steamed veggies.. I removed the taco wrap and ate the grilled shrimp and shredded cheese. There was three tacos. I ate the shrimp and cheese out of two of them and brought 1 home. Ate most of the veggies except the carrots. They were the hard whole ones so I was nervous about those. I feel I may have a tiny bit more then 4 oz. But I really didn't have a lot today food wise so I didn't feel so bad.. I do feel a bit full and was nervous I was gonna be sick but home now and feeling ok.. I'm nervous for v.day. my husband and I want to go out to dinner and I don't know how that will go.and what about having 1 glass of wine for a special occasion???
  11. Today is my 19th day since having this surgery vsg. That I did want... I have lost 24 lbs . Which I am thrilled with... since Fri so 5 days ago. I have not lost 1oz....... have stayed the exact same weight to the oz..... also my hormones must be going crazy. Cause I am sooo snappy at everyone ...every noise is driving me nuts.. smells of things are making me nauseous -- my kids are small and I feel like they have been so whiney and pushing all my buttons.. I have noticed myself screaming so much more ... I really want to bite everyone's heads off that I have come in my life or speak w....... What is going on.. I know my period is due the end of this wk.. but this is not normal for me.. I'm never this bad...!!!!!!! Omg.....i just got done from dropping my kids off at school I literally thought I was going to have a melt down in my car.... tears were pouring I felt crazy!!!! Help.....

    Thank u for this question cause honestly this morning I smelled coffee At my child's daycare and I almost took it from the teacher..lol.. it smelled so good.. I tried to do decaf but it is just not the same...so I was actually going to ask this same question...
  14. I am 11 days post op. This wked we were invited out to breakfast which we did not go.. we came up w. A an excuse but of course l felt guilty.. I am not really eating at this point yet. Starting to introduce mushy food. Focusing on my fluids and protein shakes.. I have another two wks I believe when I will be able to start eating more foods.. I am starting to feel bad for my husband. I told him we can go out .. we will just go somewhere where I can order a soup or a meal w. My son who is 3 and feed him and have like mashed potatoes or something.. So when did u all have your first dining out experience after surgery??
  15. Thank u. All in the family was a show my mother had really enjoyed.... lol.. I remember watching it w. Her.. but u r right. I have already told my husband tomorrow I'm laying around and resting I'm sore and in pain...lol
  16. I am 10 day post op .surgery on Jan 18th. Today I thought let me try to clean my house. I vacuumed and mopped floors cleaned and organized kids rooms. I started noticing my incisions being sore.. then the main one above my belly botton where they removed by stomach is so sore right underneath.. could have damaged something .? I was bending over a lot and of course when I got to the point of pain is when I decided to stop.. such a typical women/mother move.. and now I'm laying here in pain. I even ended up taking a left over pain killer.. Help..

    I WANT FOOD!!!

    Omg... I'm 8 days out still on the full liquid phase.... and all I can think about is pizza, cheeseburgers, tacos, pasta, omg.. I know I can't have it and I know that I did this weight loss surgery for a good reason but the food us like a drug... I need it.. I want it.... help me....!!! ( being a bit dramatic but honestly this is how I sound in my head) . ...omg.... I need some help motivation.. I know I can't eat them I can seriously hurt myself.. so I know that is what is holding me back and the main reason on why I needed to have this surgery cause I couldn't control myself.. but seriously this is all I'm thinking about.....

    I WANT FOOD!!!

    I'm already on that stage .. it's so funny to me how everyone has different foods that are allowed per each phase. Phase 2 for me is thicker soup, but still runny cream of wheat, yogurt, jello , pudding ,things like that.. I want like chewy mouth texture food.. ughh..
  19. I just created an Instagram acct ..just another way to track my journey.. Please ck it out.. If you have one also please let me know I would be happy to follow you as well.. Instagram - iwillbmeagain
