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!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
