Tonight’s dinner: Baked salmon, roasted garlic and chicharron (and an espresso martini beforehand, not shown)

399 calories.

Ate (and drank) it all.

P.S. There is a tres leches cake calling my name in the fridge. After I digest my meal I just may have some later (anticipate 200 cals for 1/4 cup of it…lol)

Lunchtime! (Technically Breakfast actually)

Baked salmon, beef brisket with BBQ Sauce and 1/2 a sweet dinner roll: 370 calories.

Ate one bite of the brisket and al of the rest. The BBQ sauce i poured over the brisket was too sweet to eat for first meal of the day. I put it back in the the fridge but I already know im not going to eat it later…got too turned off, boo.

Spaghetti bolognaise!
My husbands portion on the left (what I would have eaten pre op), mine on the right.
It was delicious!

Always eye opening to see the volume of food we used to be able to eat before vs now. Crazy.

@ms.sss no judgement here! I had a crunchy Taco Bell taco and 2 servings of pringles while putting up Christmas trees (yes, trees!) And just had a Protein Bar before I head to bed.

I knew better than to eat just leftover chicken tenders and French fries for dinner after only having a Protein Shake, a Protein bar, and a cream cheese cookie the rest of the day. 🤦‍♀️ Calories is total for the day so far. I have to work tomorrow night so I’m trying to stay up as late as possible so I sleep during the day. Hopefully I’ll be able to eat something else.

Small plates are my absolute fave way to eat a restaurant meal (I.e., dim sum, tapas, izakaya, tasting menus). One can sample a variety of food without the commitment of a full entrée.

Here was last night’s 13 course meal. Each course was probably the size of a fork head (no more than 2 normal sized bites each). Didn’t eat everything put in front of me…I marked the items I passed on with an X below for reference…which someone gladly ate lol. Figured I ate about 2 (maybe 2.5) cups total in food volume over a span of 3+ hours. Was more than satisfied, on the verge of stuffed…almost, but not quite.

There was no easy way to figure out the calories for everything so I just logged 1800 cals for the night (I also had 2 glasses of wine).

Now while me and the Kid were happy, the men wanted to go for pizza after 🙄

food pic dump!

Yesterday’s snack: homemade milk bread, chicken salad, Parmesan, & crunchy garlic chilli oil. Ate one of them : 169 calories

Yesterday’s dinner : Salad! : 336 calories for the whole thing. Leftovers shown, which i tossed cuz it just wasn’t yummy enough to go back to. I blame the pate, it was kinda yuk (as you can see how i pushed it all to the side) and it touched the other food and made it smell like paté, lol.

Todays breakfast/lunch : Another salad! 373 calories. Currently eating it. If don’t finish (which I already know I won’t) I’ll eat rest for a snack cuz it’s delicious.

I made my very first hand cut zucchini Pasta last night! 😍

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
