    I just had cauliflower crust pizza tonight. I love it. Top it with ricotta and cheese cause I like white pizza then peppers, onions and loads of chicken breast. It’s delicious.

    Any April 2021 surgeries?!

    I have also been taking fiber daily since surgery. It helps a lot!!

    Ate Too Fast

    I have to eat much slower than I did before but not quite two minutes between bites. Sorry you experienced this. So far I have not vomited since surgery but I’m sure I will do Something my new tummy dislikes soon. It’s probably better that you are now like this. For the long term goal of keeping the weight off, I mean, Im sure it’s will be easier if your body gives you no choice but to slow it down.

    Do I have an eating disorder?

    Update. I called the other doctors on the list and they are not accepting new patients (they only do evaluations) Does anyone have a doctor that does telehealth or zoom appointments specializing in eating disorders?

    Hospital Bag

    I forgot that I did bring a 6 foot charging cord that I ordered on Amazon which came in handy since my iPad kept playing Netflix while I was asleep and it would have died several times but I just kept it plugged in.

    Hospital Bag

    I wasn’t allowed to shower till day three so I didn’t need shampoo or conditioner. I used my body wash with a wash cloth, my toothbrush and paste, deodorant and chap stick (which they also gave me one of those) I would have loved to have the dry mouth spray but that only lasts a few hours. I brought my phone and iPad and watched Netflix the whole time when I was awake but slept a lot. The hospital did provide toothbrush and toothpaste but I used mine since I brought it. Pack light, your visitors can always bring you things if you need them. I left some things out on the dresser that I thought I might want so I could ask hubby to bring them but didn’t need anything else.

    Pants vs. dress right after surgery

    I wore men’s lounge pajama pants (they are super stretchy) while I was in the hospital and they never bothered anything. I woke up from surgery with a compression thing on that I wore till I was home that covered the incisions anyways so I doubt anything would have hurt.
  11. So the psychologist I seen before my surgery didn’t ask any questions about my eating habits and seemed more like a rubber stamp sort of deal. There were four doctors on the list though and I am thinking about seeing one of the others because I am two months out and I am starting to be able to eat more and want to eat more times a day than I am supposed to. I basically always want to eat when I am board and sometimes when I am stressed or anxious. Is this an eating disorder? Can a therapist really help with this. I am still losing weight but I worry as I can eat more and more at a time and once the hunger hormones come back that I may not be in the best place to win this battle. Any advice?

    I would call the doctor if pain is getting worse. I have not heard anyone say pain got worse.
  13. Maybe ask your mom to be the thoughtful and prepared one with a ring gaurd on hand so when you “tell her” that he popped the question she can offer up the ring gaurd so you can wear it for a while safely without losing before you have it sized.
