I would love love love some popcorn...



Recommended Posts

You know how you start thinking about some particular food and pretty soon you've convinced yourself that it is the most fabulous food in the world (even when you don't normally "love" it....just enjoy having it once in a while) and you cannot live without it? When I was kid a a got obsessed with having to have a radish. Yes, a radish. No idea why -- maybe I saw it on tv and thought it looked good. I kept asking my mother to buy a radish to put in my salads (yes, I was on a diet as a kid). But once I started thinking about it I became obsessed with having a radish. She told me that I had the wrong idea about what a radish will taste like... she was right...yuck.

So anyway, I've been thinking about popcorn for a few days and I have now convinced myself that it is a terrible tragedy that I cannot have popcorn....I like popcorn but suddenly it is my favorite food....and I can't have it....

Just thought I'd share...

I don't know but know that I still can't have it.....Think I can at 6 months, but it is hard for me to only eat a little bit...so may still avoid it.

Yes, that's what I thought, but couldn't remember. It's six months before we can have any seeds or nuts, etc., right?

Well I can tell you that I could NEVER go to the movies without getting my popcorn with lots of the buttery oil on it and a Dr. Pepper, Well I went to the movies Wednesday night to see Safe Haven and I packed a dill pickle and a cheese stick and some Decaf sugar free iced tea (I would have bought from the theater but they didn't sell any of these). Anyway I walked right past the concession stand and didn't even think about it. I shocked myself. but yes I would love some popcorn if it wasn't dangerous to my sleeve. I'm almost 5 weeks post op.

Im 4 months post op an I will actually have 1/3 - 1/2 cup portion once a week. it my one and only cheat, and it goes down well. it doesnt make me gain or loose that day but its worth it to me lol. I was told by my nurse that carbs will get suck in my throat, or I would have dumping syndrome. well they dont lol Im happy about that. I can handle them in very small amounts. I havent told this to my nurse though. Really if its not affecting me in a negative way then I think its ok.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
