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.

The store near where I work makes sushi w/brown rice. Yum! :-)

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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
