Hey! I'm now 9 months post-op and about 15lbs from goal weight. Wanted to see what people are doing about dating, specifically eating out.

I'm going to dinner with a guy a friend set me up with this weekend and just nervous about him wondering why I don't eat that much of meal.

My surgery is something I've been very open about to friends/family so if I go on several dates with someone I would absolutely tell them but I don't want to do it on the very first date.

Thanks!

I'd suggest ordering a meal, eat what you want, push it around the plate a bit if you have to, and ask for a container to take the rest home. The guy probably won't even notice exactly how much or little you eat. Keep talking and keep his mind on your sparkling personality!

Oh well first off good luck.

Treat this just like you would anything else personal. Don't tell him just like you would never mention any of your exes on the first date either.

Order light, like an appetizer, salad, Soup or side dishes and tell him straight up, you're not a big eater and you're not that hungry. He won't think anything is odd if you handle it that way.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
