Well, you still have the choice. You can choose food, or you can choose yourself.

That list you have more than likely outlines foods that people typically can't eat, it doesn't mean that you can't eat those (you shouldn't) but it also doesn't outline foods you might have issues with after surgery.

Speaking of Surgery, which WLS are you going for? Because that changes things to some extent.

But yes, part of getting thinner with WLS, is giving up certain foods forever.

It's normal on a lot of plans to give up popcorn, some don't but you'd be amazed what you can live without

It depends on your surgery, and surgeon. I was sleeved and I have no "forbidden" foods.

I still eat popcorn. No problems.

However, corn on the cob gets stuck and I can't tolerate it. Not sure why?

To be successful, you're going to have to give up a lot of your old eating habits. Sugar, in particular, is a challenge for most. Anything refined. It's hard and it takes a lot of discipline.

You can't go into bariatric surgery thinking the surgery is going to do the heavy lifting long term. It will do its part and help....but ultimately your habits need to change.

People seem shocked when we say....yes, you lose weight through DIETING after surgery. But it's true, it's all about changing your forever diet and your eating habits. The surgery helps, but the dietary changes...the biggest effort... is squarely on you.

      Uh oh! Something happened to Matty this week. I was in a local Wawa (think east coast convenience store) and a gorgeous girl ran smack into me while I was grabbing a grape Propel - just couldn't deal with anymore water today. She was texting and walking ... okay, yeah, this missed me as Gen X'er. Well she looked up at me and flashed me one helluva smile. I was feeling pretty good that day so it was time to bring out some game, "So you know I can't let a gorgeous girl who crashes into me go without getting her phone number." LOL! She turned beet red, asked for my phone and sent herself a text message from mine. She said, "Because you men never call ..." I don't know quite what I was thinking but figured it would be one heck of a ride. What is it with me and short girls? I seem to attract them and I don't honestly care about height. She's all of 5'4". I knew she was young but it didn't occur to me how young. What did I just get myself into?
      I told myself no dating until the scale reads 190 but this new me is feeling sexually driven like I have never been before. Well, she's right I wasn't really planning on calling her so she called me. So I told her my age (41) and was shocked to hear that she generally goes for men older than 35. We must've talked on the phone close to 3 hours. You're going to think I am lying when I tell you she's a 3rd year med student and is interested in training to be a bariatric surgeon. The stars might've just aligned but I want to go slow and told her that I had weight loss surgery. She's totally my type - the professional, highly educated, and ambitious woman. That's what frightens me, because in the past, this has lead to unhealthy relationships. Well, I've got a date lined up for Saturday and I just want to have some fun. I needed money in order to make this happen so I sold a bunch of old computer equipment and managed to raise some capital for this adventure. I know I won't be drinking alcohol but that's okay.

        That's pretty damn epic man... Congrats! It's crazy with some liberally applied confidence can do!

        Wow! Way to go Matt! You sound out of my league ;)

      3. okayestmom

        It sounds like you are already have fun even before the date. Relax and enjoy.

        This post was just what I needed, I am tired of medical stuff today.

      4. Mattymatt

        No @MN_Meg770, you're not out of my league. You're just too far away :-( I like you very much and if you lived in my area, you'd be totally dateable. As I wrote before, having a type is not really healthy a thing and I am hesitant to get into a relationship with someone whom might not be very understanding of a disability.

      5. MN_Meg770

        I was just teasing you silly :) It is all good.

      It's more successfully minded to ask questions like.... When can I begin working out.... Or when can I return to work as opposed to when can I eat that or this again.....

      Down another three pounds and had my one-month post-surgery follow-up (although its actually be 7 weeks tomorrow, their scheduling sucks). The nurse practitioner was pleased with my weight loss (36 pounds in 7 weeks) and told me I was cleared to go back to water aerobics and whatever else I would like to pursue exercise wise. Now to find a new pair of tennis shoes
