I don't think that is weird at all. In fact that is a good thing because it means you are gaining more self confidence. Good luck on your journey

Thanks!

I don't think it's weird at all. I'm the same exact way. I'm finally putting myself back out there after almost 2 years of not dating anyone. And I can't wait to be able to change my body type from overweight to fit! So happy for you! I'm realizing that I'm really going to miss chocolate and pizza though! LOL!

Not much of a sweet eater myself... but I do love good food!

Not weird at all! I had lap band in 2012, successful, stomach issues in 2016, so now looking at sleeve surgery in May. :-)

I was in culinary school for a while before my back and hand started messing up real bad. So I totally understand the love of food. Cooking and Baking. I wish I had time to make both my lasagna and my eggless chocolate cake tonight, but I don't. :( But it's okay. I'm going to figure out how to make a "carb free" lasagna using eggplant and zucchini "noodles" and homemade spaghetti sauce. All the store bought sauces I've found contain a lot of sugar. It's usually one of the first ingredients after tomatoes. So I'm going to make my own sugar free spaghetti sauce! And as far as pizza...I'll make me a pizza frittata on pizza nights (when i can eat again. LOL!) I start my mostly liquid diet tomorrow. :D

Those sound delicious!
A lot of people have underlying causes for overeating but I think I just love food.

That's not weird, at all! When I started this journey with my six-month pre-op diet program almost 13 months ago, I made a list of milestones (26 of them in all). When I hit one of the milestones, I notate that on my list along with the date. It keeps me motivated and makes me happy. And some of them are the little things like what you mentioned! (And to be honest, those are the best ones!)

Good luck as you continue your journey!

I made the jump from a few extra pounds to about average. I figure I'll let my pictures do the talking and not going to put off potential matches. My BMI is under 30 so I'm no longer obese. My BMI is almost the same as Lebron James and no one would label as a few extra pounds so I'm basically a shorter version of Lebron James.

      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.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
