I don't know how, but I DID IT--passed up pizza & breadsticks!



Recommended Posts

So, I met up with friends and the kids tonight for pizza and breadsticks at Pat N Oscars, and I did not have ANY.

I am just so amazed that I could do that! I am 8 days post-op, so I had a Protein Shake before I left and am emergency sugar-free pudding in my purse. I was so scared I wouldn't be able to stop my self from sneaking in a little bite of pizza, yet, I DID (stop myself, that is)! I really had doubts that this band thing would work--I am such an emotional eater, and even told my doctor I eat when I am NOT hungry all the time. I can't believe I am actually doing this, and surviving without junk food all day......

I still feel like I am walking on eggshells though--I haven't told a SOUL about my surgery for fear that it might not work, sigh....

but, I think it just MIGHT be working!

Thanks for letting me share smile.gif

Good job! I'm so glad there's not a pat and oscar's in Phoenix any more. I wouldnt be able to pass it up! Everytime my husband and I go to San Diego(pre-band) I always want to go eat at pat and oscar's and have their amazing breadsticks. Love that place... anyway... Haha

I'm proud of you!

Fantastic!

A lot of times some things are just all in our Head. Like a addiction for carbs... Once you know you can't have it, you lose the urge for it.

Hope that makes sense to you, because it's so,,,, true !!

Why won't/didn't you tell anybody? Support will

be your greatest ally. I'm just curious because I thought about not saying anything, but I'm glad I did. It makes dining out so much easier because nobody puts pressure on me or questions my motives.

funny, I caved about 6 weeks post op to pizza breadsticks. BAD IDEA! Youll try it once and NEEEEVVVVER do it again. The Stuck episode and swelling (caused major complications for weeks) because I got stuck on a bite of pizza hut breadstick. I avoid pizza like the plague now. It hurt like the dickens and the craving goes away pretty quickly. Great job for passing it up. You did yourself a favor.

Chelle:

I have been very focused on the week or liquids and after the first day was ok. I am not worried about loosing weight right after surgery just my sanity.

Mindy:

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
