Ok, for a while it was oatmeal with dried cherries and pecans. Had to eat it all the time. Loved it. (still do, but getting bored)

Lately I want refried Beans with cheese melted on top and a bunch of salsa. Not really craving the tortilla, so don't bother with it.

But the beans! Love them lately.

Wonder what that's about?

Sometimes I also want avacado, lettuce, Tomato, onion, cilantro and lime.

But for an on the go lunch? Beans with cheese and salsa...has been really good lately.

Never would have eaten this before. Cravings have changed so much in the last six months. Weird!

What brand of refried beans do you favor?

What ever is on sale and vegetarian. LOL:) The ones I ate today were Ortega

120 calories for 1/2 cup... 8 grams of Protein, 0 grams of fat, 5 grams of fiber!

Good eats. Had some reduced fat colby jack and hot homemade salsa.

I like to save my fats budget in all things "taco" for healthier avocado fat:)

I'll have to pick some up. One of my twins makes an absolutely kick-@ss salsa. I still can't eat it :47_tired_face: I did manage to eat about 12 black Beans with my cilantro-lime chicken last night. Yeah! Can't wait until my portions get a bit bigger.

Our brain/bodies do some crazy things. Usually cravings are caused by your body signaling that you need something that a particular food might provide. Sometimes they are caused by hormone imbalances of all things. And then there is the addiction part, where your body craves the endorphins caused by eating certain foods. Sounds like you've got a handle on satisfying the craving while staying within your WLS requirements which is awesome.

I almost always crave beef after working out, not sure why beef, but pretty much every time I walk out of the gym, I want a burger.

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
