Old habits die hard even a year after sugery



Recommended Posts

I'm a year out of surgery and 85 lbs down. And yet this morning on my way to work half asleep I stop at subway to get something to take for lunch and after I paid I realized I had ordered a footling and a large drink. I started laughing when I realized there is no way I can eat all that and how funny that I orded that with out thinking smh old habits die hard

Everytime I make bacon and eggs (about 2x a week), I cook myself 2 pcs - even tho for the past 3 yrs I've only been ever able to eat 1 pc. Always give it to my dog (I know, I know, she really doesn't need it either!). My eyes are ALWAYS bigger than my stomach. Thank goodness I have a husband that likes my leftovers!

It's funny how we do that- I catch myself doing that too!

In fact, just a couple weeks ago I was at a restaurant with my family. I ordered a cup of Soup and chef salad. But then, I saw they had coleslaw so I ordered that too. My daughter literally started laughing at me "Ummmm mom? You won't even eat 1/3 of all that". I watched the waitress bring our food, took one look at the Soup, and realized I'd be lucky to even finish all of that let alone a huge chef salad AND coleslaw too.

...there was so much leftovers, I ate chef salad for lunch the next 2 days in a row!

Old habits die hard for sure!

it happens....I will buy food, sometimes in the cafeteria at work...then realize it is not band friendly, knowing it will not go down easily and I would get stuck trying, so I wind up throwing it out...

But sometimes the food just looks so good!!!

I will get subway, when there is nothing else around, throw away the bread and lettuce, and snack on the other stuff....still throw most of that away...

I have always bought what I wanted to eat, and then throw most of it out. One of the first things my dr said to me is 'be prepared to throw food out'. I'm asian, we don't throw anything out. My mum had heart attacks every time I didn't finish my food.< /p>

But I realised that if I wanted salmon, and would likely only eat 1/3 of it, I should still order the salmon. It used to kill my ex that I'd get a dish and eat 2 mouthfuls and then push the rest around my plate. But damn, it's hard enough trying to eat well without denying myself beautiful food to boot. So I ate beautiful food and STILL lost weight. :) Win!

lol this reminds me of yesterday. One of my co-workers use to make sure he'd sit next to me at business lunches so he could eat my leftovers. He felt completed cheated when my leak happened and I started eating more of my food. Now I'm dieting again, he's ecstatic and told me so yesterday at lunch!

When my husband is done with his meal (and he eats really fast), he starts eyeing mine! Altho he's a low carber, so if it's like 1/2 of a burger I give him, he pulls the bun off, so I guess thats ok. In fact, I started eating faster so I could get more of my meal - thats backfired on me, for sure! Immediatly to the bathroom!

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
