My son introduced me to sushi when I visited him in California a few weeks ago. The first night we went we ordered over $100 in food so I could try a lot of different things (12 different dishes). I had a bite of each, my son who is a big marine ate all the rest. :-) Everything was good and everything sat well. We ate sushi every other night - we ate Mexican the rest of the time. I am now a sushi fan. The place next door to where I work makes it w/brown rice which I prefer. :-)

My surgery was a year ago.

I think you all know that rice is wasted calories. I used to eat a ton of rice, anyway I could get it. But seriously there are better ways to get a fix on this type of food. If you would like a nice substitute that has lots of Protein why not eat Quinoa. It is delicious and there are lots of asian recipes on the net that substitute Quinoa for rice. Not necessarily sushi but a reasonable exchange that could fix your craving. Having Bariatric surgery means making sacrifices that we all know we had to do to be successful. I don't want you all to think I'm a buzzkill but sushi? I have not eaten it since I decided to have surgery.

Sushi and sashimi are the perfect sized meals for me. I can order 1 roll or one order and have a delicious lunch for $5 with leftovers. I do remove some or most of the rice because it causes me to vomit but I love it.

Where do you live that there exists sushi or sashimi for $5?!!!!! I don't know if I'd eat $5 sashimi!

I started sushi maybe 4 months post-op. Funnily enough it was the only rice I could tolerate for several months. Today at 8 months, any rice is okay in small amounts.

We have a few nice Asian restaurants that have lunch specials; 2 rolls and a salad for $10. I go with my local surgery pals and we share.

It's very little food, but I can't even eat an entire roll, so...

I live in New York. I don't think that kind of deal exists near me! Enjoy.

Those in my support group tell me I will be able to eat anything after a while. However, we all know that rice, bread and that kind of stuff is a bad choice, leaving the entire decision up to the individual. I look at it this way, until I get to my goal weight and switch to a maintanance diet I will avoid carbos and play by the rules. At that point my eating habits should be well controlled and a bit of rice wont be an issue.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
