Everyone's planned or already had Food Funerals?



Recommended Posts

For me I have 3 things planned to eat for my last day pre post-opp diet, a small curry and naan bread for lunch, a nice roast pork dinner with all the trimmings and some good old chocolate.< /p>

How about you? what did you have or planning to have on your your last day before your pre-op diet?

Going to my favorite restaurant (The Peasant and the Pear) for a Spiced Pear Martini and cheese fondue.

I had a Chicago beef polish, a bag of chili cheese fritos and half a bottle of some fruity alcholic beverage and a chocolate chip cookie. True junk food it was all I could get my hands on and it was the final hour. I wanted some medium hot wings with maybe a cheesecake.

I've been going to all my favorite restaurants, getting takeout, and making all my favorite things for the past 3 months. (Only occasionally, not every day! I've still managed to lose 27 pounds in that time.) So it's been one long goodbye to all my faves. But my final farewell is going to be fried clams and fried scallops with clam chowder. I'm a Mainer, I need to get my fill of fried seafood!

You guys are wasting your time.

You can eat everything you want later on -- but not all on the same day and not as much as you used to eat. And by that time, you won't want to eat like you used to.

FTR, I didn't do food funerals. I was just so ready to change my life for the better, it seemed like a terrible idea and sort of disgusting.

I skipped the food funeral. By the time I committed to WLS, I was sooooo DONE! with food. I hated eating so much, but at the same time was compelled to overeat.

This post and responses made me laugh this morning! :) I remember feeling this way too... I thought I was never going to be able to have my favorites again. But I was wrong, You guys will all be able to eat almost all these things you've mentioned. Just in smaller quantities. Don't worry, you will have your favorites again...and again... and again. Best of luck on surgery! :)

I just had my last meal... I didn't do it because I won't be able to eat them again. I did it because I know I am not going to have solid crunchy food for a while. a good long while! I have not lost any weight just a few pounds back and forth, but I didn't gain anything! But I just had Mexican food at my favorite place, I made my hubby brave "Tropical Storm Bill" so I could go , and tonight for the first time, nothing tasted good and I ate even less than normal.

I have a Lapband, have had it since 2003, so I have been unable to eat a meal for 12 years without getting "sick", tonight was no exception! But I am looking forward to not doing that any more!!! And I so looking forward to eating normal! So I did have a food funeral in a way, but I am looking forward to making my goal this time. Making a life style change, and getting healthy once and for all!!!!

Enjoy your food funerals and don't go back to that way of eating! Or only in moderation, I have been changing the way I eat due to health problems. And the fact I want to live a long and healthy life! Good Luck everyone!

Yup. I really didn't see the point in ingesting 3k-4k thousand calories that I would then need to turn around and burn. I spent 41 years eating crap and as a reward, I got myself to 264 pounds. I'd eaten my lifetime share of food and the that of at least 2 or 3 other people by the time I had surgery.

I actually did my pre-op diet for a month instead of the prescribed two weeks because I was SO.DAMN.TIRED. of being fat.

I can now eat almost anything and the things I can't eat (rice, Pasta, ice cream) make me feel so sick I don't even WANT them anymore. I can eat fried food, but I usually peel off the batter and eat the insides. If I don't, I can manage 4-5 small bites and I am DONE.

It is a wonderful feeling to be free from the hold food had over me.

I don't have a surgery date yet but once every 2 weeks my hubby and I go out to eat ... I'm really gonna miss that for the first 6 months to a year after surgery ....but this is all worth it I've already lost 22 lbs 10 before I started this journey ( I was very ill and in the hospital)

I've had several food funerals lately, and I was careful not to over-do it on calories, was pleasantly surprised at my pre-op appt. (Monday) that I lost six more lbs! I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. 1200 calories a day for 12 days and then a two day liquid diet.

Having lunch at my favorite restaurant today, and will probably have a light dinner tonight! Bring on July 2!!

You can still go out to eat with your hubby every 2 weeks after surgery. Why can't you? You just choose healthier low carb options and take the rest home for lunch (and even dinner too) the next day. The world doesn't stop just becuase you had WLS. You just learn a new way of eating.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
