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



Recommended Posts

OK with the holidays I've been nibbling on the Cookies. Still losing weight and still tracking numbers. I won't be able to get completely on track until after oldest son bday. Today is youngest. Rumchata cheesecake for him. Jan 4 is next one. Rumchata caramel flan. Avoiding alcohol still (4m postop). So just a bite or two but still a cheat

Christmas eve party with the neighbours, sausage rolls (x2) peanuts (protein!) sour cream and chives pretzels and quite a bit of alcohol.

To be fair though, I ate very little beforehand and its only the second time I have had alcohol since my sleeve 7 months ago :)

For the past month leading up to my pre op liquid diet (which I'm currently on day 3/14, ya i had to start Dec. 24th), I ate Everything! that I wanted calling it my bucket list... this included but was not limited to fast food, buffets, ice creams, cakes/pies, chips, candy, etc... I indulged like I was living my last day. I know that I was suppose to be "trying to lose weight" per my Dr's request. But I wanted to taste/eat everything that I could before things got real.

No regrets :)

Vacationing in Florida and Im doing pretty well! I've had sime calculated "cheats" but none of it has gotten out of control. Just need to make sure it stays that way. Ex: a bite of a donut, a small chai tea spread out over the whole day, a bite of pizza, some dark chocolate

Haha, I was hoping the same thing. I used to drink a lot of it & then completely stopped, but I’ve seriously been craving it since my op.

Olly, I know the feeling!! I just couldn’t take it anymore. I was out to dinner and was so sick of Water. I find it really bugs me if I’m out because it’s basically water or nothing. I decided to just try it and I feel fine. Maybe a bit full after each sip, but I drank so little it didn’t make a difference in my food intake. Totally worth it!

Well, the holidays have been rough! So many parties, so much good smelling food, and I couldn't eat any of it. I was bad over the holiday, at 12 days post op I ate the inside of a deviled egg (not the boiled white part), and on Christmas, I ate the inside of another deviled egg and a tablespoon of mashed unsweetened sweet potatoes which I could not finish. Even though my diet plan doesn't have me starting pureed foods until Friday. I ate slowly an added saliva when I would put the food in my mouth to thin it out more. I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT IT TASTED SO GOOD! and I was very satisfied and didn't feel sick or overly full. I haven't had anything even semi-solid in almost 5 weeks so that was a real joy.

I figured it would be nice to have a section where we could just confess to some of the potentially dumb things we've done, pre or post op. Just so others can see we are all human. I want this to be kept as civil as possible, where people can own up to things without anyone else chiming in with anything negative, we all know what we did wasn't "right" but I'm sure we ALL have done something we shouldn't have.

I'll start.

I cheated on my pre-op diet a few times. I also like to find loop holes and exploit the crap out of them. I drank beer for a week+ on my pre-op, because it didn't say I couldn't. I only stopped after I was forced to, because my wife asked my surgeon and of course they said "no"... boo. I also ate a whole slice of French meat Pie at my Dad's 60th birthday luncheon.

I cheated on my post-op diet/puree stage a bit too. I ate rice cakes and Protein chips or other veggie chips. Not a lot, but it happened. I "pureed" a steak and cheese sandwich once. I ate a few fried ravioli on my puree stage as well.

This past weekend, I had a beer. My wife and I took my parents out to dinner at a local casino, it's Restaurant week, so we found a good looking location and went out to eat, part of the deal was that you got a draft beer with your meal. So, I had a shipyard summer ale with my grilled chicken parm sandwich (only ended up eating 3 bites of the chicken and none of the bread).

I did all that thus far and nothing bad happened.

I understand the changes are to ensure we stick to our diets, but understanding that we are all human and WILL either slip up or just stray from our diets on purpose like I did. It's good to see that, it's possible to still live and be able to enjoy a few things we "shouldn't" without any negatives happening.

So, what's your WLS confession?

So far I only cheated once and it was during my pre-op liquid diet. We had a friends Christmas party on the 15th and I made 10lbs of my home made mac and cheese. It smelled SOOOOO good, so maybe I had like 5 bites and man was it worth it.

Bless me for I potentially gonna sin. Good(?) friend brought Tomkitten and I Homemade peanut brittle, maybe I just lick a piece? Oh my will was strong but I think that zip lock bag is trying to call my name. Maybe I hide it under his pillow in his room? Oh so so tempting and I usually. don't like peanuts That Much. Anybody got set of handcuffs so I can't reach my 👄 mouth?

Had champagne for Christmas and ouch! Switched to a dry rose after 2 sips and it was divine with the seafood buffet. I ate well, stuck to my portions and had a great day

Great idea, Matt!

I had TWO glasses of wine last night when hubby & I went out for our birthdays/anniversary. I had a designated driver and I don't feel guilty in the least. Part of me wishes I had gotten sick though, so that I wouldn't be tempted to do it again [emoji14] Additionally, I had the wine with my meal!
How far out from surgery was this. I want wine sooooo bad

Alright. I need everyone to know. Not crazy when I talk about Water quality. I went away and didn't reup my supply of good stuff so when I returned home I had to drink tap( boil and filter)

Massive heart burn all the way into my esophagus. I thought coincidence because of course it's not water causing reflux, so i employed the scientific method, continued the research and sure enough, It's the F'ing water.

Also, I ate whatever I wanted on vacay... So there a confession.

      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".
