Hi All!

Am I the only one who is confused about the lack of veggies on my post-op diet? Have you incorporated veggies back into your life? I actually find myself missing salad! Most of my diet is taken up by trying to get enough Protein. Is that right?

I lived 6 weeks without salad after surgery on the advice of my nutritionist...

But now...i'm making up for lost time:)

Love, love, love me a salad. I chop everything up fine for the most part, and chew really well...but God it's good to eat crunchy veggies again:)

Lettuce in salad still gives me trouble, but cucumbers, green pepper strips, etc are fine. I have not tried raw broccoli or anything like that. Stir-fry veggies work great. I can only eat a few bites, I alternate 3 bites of meat, 1 veggie bite....

I'm in the pureed phase and I do 1oz of Protein with 1oz of veggies and top up my protein using protein water/shakes. x

I was not able to eat raw veggies for two months after surgery now I eat salads with veggies and some chicken in it, I also have been making up time with veggies.

I'm not cleared for raw. I'm on a soft diet - phase 3 and am 4 weeks + 1 day. :)

I eat 2oz Protein + 1oz veggies at each meal (3 meals + 1 snack + 1st brekky which is protein coffee)

I can NOT wait for raw veggies and salads! I miss them long time mister!

You will be allowed veggies as you progress out from surgery

      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.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
