Never I my life would I have thought I would say those two words together. Lol. I like that my life is not surrounded with food and that I'm not obsessed. One great benefit of this whole thing. Eating is so uncomfortable most the time so it's not as fun and fulfilling as it used to be. That's a good thing. Anyone else feel this way?

Yes, I agree. Eating sucks! It's only a necessity now that I eat. To nourish my body. And I have a hard time getting in all I am supposed to, daily. I have no hunger since surgery. food doesn't even taste the same, and I really don't have any serious cravings. I wanted pretzels once, but I wonder if that was a salt thing. I never gave into that craving. It passed.

It is weird, to have such a different relationship with food. I'm glad though, it makes me feel "normal", I guess, where I didn't before.

I agree with you both, it's definitely different now in regards to the enjoyment of eating. In someways I wish I could enjoy food now but in other ways it's good to have the control that I didn't have before surgery. I guess every bit of success has sacrifice. ????

I agree & disagree ... my husband cooks A-MAZING food. It is very flavorful, but healthy. Now I find that while I am not hungry & eat because it is meal time, I am enjoying really small portions of these great meals. I usually have 1/2 cup meat/protein & 1/4 cup of whatever side he makes. I am lucky in that no foods bother me, but I can't eat more than 3/4 cup without being so full it hurts. Going out to dinner on the other hand is a whole different issue!

For me eating sucks. I am a RNY surgery patient. I wonder if this is different for sleeve patients.

I have found some things that I like such as chili and can almost spend the rest of my life eating this. Recently I found that a Velvetta cheese sandwich is almost like heaven.

I was just thinking about this... Most of the time eating does suck! My lunch of 4 slices of turkey wrapped around a cucumber slice was just blah!!!

But I made chicken tortilla Soup (minus the tortilla part for me) and it was delicious, healthy and so satisfying! Those meals that just hit the spot are so few and far between that they are like little gold mines! Truly, I could have the same thing tomorrow and would hate it. That part sucks too!!

Eating has sucked for the last few weeks. I don't know what I want and honestly I'm not hungry. I have everyone counting my Protein and telling me what I can and can't eat. Sometimes I can eat and others I can't. I have good days and then I have down right plain horrible days! I've been struggling, but I found to going back to basics has worked. Simplifying my meals is working. Drinking my Water and taking my Vitamins all help encourage healthy habits.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
