I had my surgery nov 6th and I've lost 75lbs so far.. the family all wants to get pizza for supper tonight but ive been really good and haven't been eating carbs since the surgery. What does everyone think about me having one slice of pizza tonight?? would that ruin everything for me???

Was pizza a trigger food for you pre-op? I had a huge issue with carbs, and pizza was the biggest issue of my hoggish consumption, so I stay away from it, even at 16 months post-op. (That being said, I avoid most all carbs and only have about 20-25 grams per day.)

You'll probably be fine, but remember that pizza dough will expand in your stomach. If you must, you might consider just having the toppings or having some sort of thin crust pie.

When I go to pizza places with family and friends, I just get a salad. I've worked really hard to make those kind of gatherings more about spending time with people and not about the food consumed.

Have fun!

I'd probably get a salad and have a bite or two of hubby's pizza:)

Will the world end? Nope.

Is it the best thing for you? Nope.

it's a judgement call. You're allowed to be human, but be really careful about the slippery slope!

Also...if you do this? GO SLOW. Three or four bites, then wait fifteen minutes. It might be all you want.

I think not if it doesn’t become a habit. Maybe even half of a slice. Nice job on the weight loss!

When I crave pizza I make this, but I substitute ricotta cheese for cream cheese. I also throw it under the broiler for the last few minutes of bake time to get it crispy on the edges. http://www.plainchicken.com/2012/03/wheres-crust-pizza.html?m=1
It totally satisfies my craving for pizza or Pasta and is unbelievably delicious. The options for toppings are endless. I threw roasted asparagus and turkey meatballs on top last week and it was heavenly.

I think you'll probably be fine, as long as it doesn't trigger you to keep eating it or eat a bunch of other stuff you shouldn't. If you do have it enjoy it!

You won’t regret it! I make a pan of it and it lasts me at least 4 meals. The best part is that no one else in the family has figured out how good it is yet so I have it all to myself!

Pizza...yum. I have one every now and then. It didn’t kill me nor did I let it make me feel guilty for eating it. Nor will I allow anyone else to tell me I’m “losing it” for having one. Enjoy a slice, or half, but that’s it.

I’ve tolerated a square of plain cheese thin crust (think cracker crust) pizza from Domino’s, so it’s probably the case that the thinner the crust, the better.

Which sucks for me, living in Chicago.

When I tried a keto diet last year, my wife made pizza using scrambled eggs for a crust, THAT was tasty.

There's a deep dish pizza place in the Chicago area (where I live) called Lou Malnati's that does a crustless deep dish. Basically, it's a Chicago style deep dish, but instead of a crust, the bottom is sausage. It's very good and has almost no carbs. If I plan for it by being VERY low calories in everything all day leading up to it, I can order a personal crustless while my family orders regular pizza. I eat half of that for dinner and the other half the next day. It gets me through.

I realize not everywhere has this as an option, but there are DIY crustless pizzas. I even saw a crustless pizza recipe for the crockpot the other day.

I just eat the toppings off a slice or two -- and have one bite of crust if it looks real good.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!

      I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

        Wow, your arm hurt a long time. Glad it finally resolved. Hope you can get back to your weight training soon, I know you enjoyed that.

      2. allwet

        yea i had/have a pinched nerve at the top of the elbow and it is a very slow thing to recover from. The arm is weaker than before but feeling much better when i use it.

        every time i thought it was better i would start some form of training and it would go numb again all along the tricep. so its very light exercises and treadmill :(

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      4. allwet

        stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

        The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.
