When did Everyone start eating potatos, fries, hashbrowns? My families going out to dinner tonight not sure what I will be able to eat.

:) I could have them at 4 weeks on soft foods, but they are discouraged because they are CARBY and slider foods.

I have had a few bites of mashed potatoes and baked, but I really stay away from them.

Ya I don't plan on eating them often I'm Just at the point where I can start mushy foods so I'm trying to decide what to eat. I really don't want to get into bad habits and potatoes are my weakness. I'm not into Soups much and so I'm kind of stuck on what I should eat.

At the mushy stage...perhaps a meatloaf, but it depends on what Proteins you've tried I guess. You may not want to try something for the first time away from the safety of your own home and bathroom! lol

A baked potato may be good...depends what kind of restaurant it is; there could be numerous options. I actually had to "plan" how to eat a Soup because of the combo with liquid. You don't want to put meat and veggies in the bottom of the "funnel" and then pour liquid on top...so I actually think that Soup is more difficult than you probably want when trying to be social. :-)

Mashed potatoes were on my immediate postop mushie list; at home they could have some Protein Powder mixed in to help get in the daily Protein allotment. I will occasionally have a some roasted potatoes (lots of potassium in them, despite the carbs for those on the highly carbophobic programs. I would certainly stay away from the fried potatoes as that doesn't add anything but empty calories which you don't need now or later - a habit that would be good to break. Long term, there is nothing particularly wrong with potatoes other than they are relatively low on the nutritional density scale, but they do have useful nutrients in them - you just don't want to make them a staple long term as that will make maintaining your weight loss more difficult.

I had half a sweet potato this evening. I am two weeks out and was told i could start mashed potatoes this week but like many have said here I can eat mashed potatoes like it's my job. Another thing I discovered years back was butternut squash. If you bake it then mash it with a little light butter or margarine it is amazing!

      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
