Confessional - Lets post our cheats/confessions/etc so others can see that we are all human



Recommended Posts

I am on my pre-op diet and I have done some cheating. However, mines seem mild in comparison. Over the past 8 days, I have eaten some grapes (about 10), a serving of snack Factory Pretzel Crisps (I checked the label and gave myself exactly 1 serving) I put half a banana in my Protein smoothie. I wasn't sure if this is actually cheating or not because bananas weren't on my list of excluded or included fruits I can use for shakes and smoothies. I ate Taco Bell plain Refried Beans when I was out holiday shopping. Ate about 3 sporks of that. My big fail was Sunday. I made a salad for my husband's dinner. Just a plain old iceberg lettuce salad mix with tomatoes, cucumbers, a small amount of bacon bits, cheese, 1/4 a piece of baked crispy chicken, and (yes I counted) croutons with light vinaigrette dressing. Before I know I was huddled in the corner like Smeagal devouring about a cup of the salad! LOL my husband caught me and tried to take it away, but I would not let go of MY PRECIOUS! LOL

For the first time since surgery, I was actually hungry yesterday...maybe stress or boredom hunger because I had eaten the most daily calories PO. I also had my first craving experience (wanted SkinnyPop sooo bad)...

I had 10 pistachios (still on soft), drank some Water and went to bed.

My family came for a visit on Saturday, we went to some festive event and my mom bought cheesecake. I had a spoonful of it. Tasted gross and I don't know whether it was because of my surgery or because the women who made it did a bad job? Hmm.

Ramen. Look, sometimes I just need some ramen in my life. It’s a tactile thing. This is one of my Asian food cheat days when I eat triangle kimbap and ramen. I will be bloated and logy tomorrow but I’m going in with eyes wide open. No scale tomorrow.

Gosh I'm with ya on that! Those chewy noodles! And great broth!!! Sometimes I just get the broth from my pho or ramen house, and use the oat fiber Shirataki noodles. (Hold your nose, rinse em like cray, then dry fry them until they pop and sizzle in a non-stick pan and are SUPER DUPER dry!) Then tump em into the broth and let them simmer for about 5 minutes to take on the flavor flave.

So good, you'll forget you ever hated shirataki noodles and would think you're eating rice noodles or bean thread noodles or maybe even udon!

I agree use the shirataki noodles, check out French guy cooking on YouTube he has a ramen series you can make some awesome broth, load it with Protein and fiber yum!! You could totally go Vietnamese and make pho too!! There’s this woman who works for buzzfeed/tasty who goes over pho.

I LOVE this thread!! I never drink “real” Water. It’s always a gallon of watered down crystal light 😮 and I can’t buy any Adkins candy or the chocolate but roll bars cause I’ll eat every one of them in the box in one day 🤦‍♀️

I'm one week post-op. Taco bell has their rolled tacos which are one of my favorite things in the whole world. Hubby brings it home for the whole family while I'm here sip sip sipping on liquids that I'm officially sick of. I walk by the bag and look in the bottom and there are little cups of nacho cheese that no one's eaten. I got a spoon and took three tiny bites of the nacho cheese... Hey it's a liquid, right?

Vacation, birthdays,Bar mitzvahs,

So I eat cake! Normally I guess anyone should feel like it's a terrible choice but I don't because: event/special occasion food; cake apparently doesn't cause dumping syndrome in me (but chicken and yogurt can so whatever) and it made me regular without the use of any psyllium or laxative teas.

I confess I made a red velvet cake for my friends fiancé and had some left over dough because I used a smaller baking pan... so I made a mini velvet cake for home too... (for my parents etc) but I had a small piece yesterday and a small piece today 😱😱😱 I think caloriewise I didn’t go too much up because I ate too little all day but still... I can make much better choices! Tomorrow will be gym day 🏃‍♀️

It’s not post-op but pre-op I went to McDonald’s at least twice right after my weigh ins. On day one of the liquid diet I ate two tacos and some white cheddar popcorn. But no cheating since and down 6 lbs.
Jesus I want some white cheddar popcorn so bad [emoji31]

I ordered chicken nuggets off the children's menu at an airport restaurant but thankfully they were gross and I only had about 2 bites.
