FRICK AND FRACK FOOD COMMERCIALS



Recommended Posts

Are you pre or post-op? I don't find much tempting post-op. And if I want to try it I find a couple bites makes me full and it isn't quite the same as it was before.

That first week of recovery that I spent mostly in a recliner in front of the T.V. was a bit tortorous. It was the damn pizza commericials that about made me crazy. At one point, I switched to watching the DVR so I could fast forward through the damn things. Hang in there! :)

I so hated sweets after drinking all the Protein Drinks. Never was a big sweets person anyway. Hang in there, sister! It gets SO MUCH BETTER!! :D ...and pretty quick I might add. Not sure what stage you're in, but after a few weeks in the solid food stage I was good to go!

Sonic, pizza Hut, Taco Bell. DAYUM. Half of me wants to be fat and just eat those things.

I know that's why I'm here now. I didn't get to have a food funeral per se. * sigh *

This sucks.

How funny! Those food commercials really got to me too! I never noticed them as much until after I had the WLS and sitting around healing watching TV, seemed like every other commercial was about FOOD!

I read a post recently and the person talked about losing her best friend of 34 years, her friend had seen her through many bad times, loss of jobs, loss of husband and then she lost her friend and mentally had to prepare for the funeral, etc.. she wrapped up the whole post by saying her best friend was food! If you really give it thougth I bet each one of us could relate to that in some way... food has been a comfort friend for me, never thought about having a funeral for it though!!!

I'm going to shake things up a bit today... no pun intended. I'm going to go get some egg drop Soup. I need something warm and savory in my life. Yeah, this mourning of food is pretty tough. I liked food because it was my quasi passport to explore other cultures. Its so easy to deem oneself a foodie. But if you're a foodie and not a workout junkie, then you end up here. While not hungry, mentally, I still crave things. Amazing how much tv influences our life's choices.

That is too funny, Amanda. It was the pizza commercials that were getting to me the worst also. My first day back home sitting healing in front of the tv, it seemed like every tv program was talking about burgers and even PIZZA burgers. Luckily I could find humour amongst the torture. I still have head cravings, but they are easier to deal with as I see the pounds fall off.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
