Okay, so I’ve learned something from the last few pages here.

1. Hospital food always has and always will suck out loud.
2. Wait til honeymoon period is well and truly over to have plastics so when my sleeve becomes more stretchy I can use the surgery as a reset.
🤣🤣🤣

Forgot my lunch bag at home so I was forced to buy something at the cafe downstairs. Salads looked like they were going bad so I ended up with chowder.

Can someone tell me why I felt immensely guilty while eating it?? I felt like I was cheating or something. Maybe because i dont know how its made and whats in it? The closest thing I can compare it to is Chupe de Camarones which is a Peruvian milky shrimp and seafood Soup (see google pic below). I know thats made with evaporated milk but chowder im guessing a heavy cream with a rue?? Omg as I continue writing this now I'm thinking I just had flour ... I dont want to stretch my pouch 😭

ALSO, i feel like every time I post my meal on this thread i write a novel of unneeded info or a paragraph full of questions so I apologize for that lol i can talk a lot in person... as well as overthink.

I hated eating out early on when i had no clue how food was prepared.

Luckily a roux is unlikely to cause any stretching in a single sitting (repetitive over eating over long periods more likely if anything and even that is rare / mostly people just eat excess cals by grazing)

Oh and we ❤ long post

Yes! I absolutely cant stand it especially when its unplanned. As of now I try to avoid it as much as possible but this Sunday I do know Im going out for Breakfast with the fam. That should be easier since i can just get plain eggs.

Thats good to know, thanks. Ive been paranoid about stretching.

And I just realized i spelled roux wrong smh.

Over time it maybe better as more options open up to you

The autocorrect on my cell misspells on purpose these days just to keep me from greatness 😅

@FluffyChix got me all salad-jonesing, so I went and fixed myself a Ginormous salad too!

This sucker is a whopping 383 calories (majority of which is from the avocado, yum) and I was literally giddy to sit down and eat it. To my great disappointment, I barely made a dent. This is what it looks like almost 2 hours later....just not feeling it today! On the bright side, Mr. and I are going out with friends tonite so that means more room for tequila, right? :P

383 calories - 22g Protein - 10g NET carbs - 25g fat

One of the things I love about the surgery is the ability to stretch a meal! I wanted chipotle so I got a burrito bowl (no rice) and added a tortilla and cheese to make two meals for me and a quesadilla for my son!
Before & Afters, my son didn’t have any left over but I did! 😃

Okay so we really do love long posts.
I’m the queen of them TBH.

it really sucks to get stuck in an emergency situation and not know exactly what’s in something, but I feel like you made a fine choice.
Besides, it’s not like you planned to go off course and you’ve been planning and staying the course so it’s all good.

One day back when I was still in the first 4 months post-op, I had a similar situation.
Left my cottage cheese out in my car and it was a few hours before I realized and it was prolly at least 90 degrees outside.
So I ordered lunch off of my Panera app (we don’t get breaks at my job and I’m prohibited by law to leave the premises) and got a turkey avocado sandwich.
Even though I ate only the insides, I got a piece of bread in a bite and it tasted God-awful and made me feel horrible that I had left my planned lunch in the car.
After that, I brought emergency food to work like packets of bari-oatmeal and the bariatric hot cocoa that I keep in my cubby.

Oh well, we live and learn.

IMO, dealing with real life eating is a good skill to have. You won't always be able to only eat food you cook yourself. Additionally, succeeding after WLS does not require perfection. Plenty of us have had great success, and have eaten non ideal foods :)

And about stomach stretching....

"Real life eating". Liking this.

The video is also a good one. Dr. Weiner's videos are usually always worth a few minutes of your time. "Your body is far more smarter than your doctor" - liking that as well.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
