Food Before and After Photos



Recommended Posts

food from the last week- lemon vegetable orzo and garlic cheese breadsticks (ate it all)

Sheppard’s pie, roasted red pepper ranch cucumber salad, and fresh pineapple (ate it all)

Not quite a frittata but spinach, bell pepper, chili powder caramelized onions, mushrooms, garlic, sharp white cheddar, with rosemary sea salt and saffron infused eggs alongside a slice of brioche toast (ate it all… I think?) The blue cup has light mocha iced coffee in it- drank all that.

steakhouse seasoned burgers- mine was on a Hawaiian roll with roasted red pepper mayo, pepper jack cheese, Vidalia onions, banana peppers, and pickles (lettuce and Tomato on the side) alongside Parmesan ranch smashed red potatoes. (Obviously didn’t eat it all)

Im still not counting calories right now but down another lb so I’m not worried about it.

Your ‘frittata’ looks very much like what I called my ‘omelette’ @Starwarsandcupcakes. eggs and whatever vegetables are on hand and cheese. I often made it for lunch. Still haven’t tested to see if my tummy likes eggs again. When i do, & if it does, I’ll be making it again - whatever it really is. 😁 Always so tasty.

I can only tolerate eggs sometimes, mostly hardboiled. Also if something smells like eggs, I can’t eat it. Even if I already started eating, I can’t continue.

It’s been this way my entire life so it might be a true aversion (even my children inherited my egg smelling abilities) but after revision, it became 10 times worse.

I can’t do eggs either, but it’s been just post op for me. Deviled eggs are the only exception.

yeah it was one of these brazillian steak houses that have non stop parades of meat. i've been to a couple in the past that were ok, but this one was not appealing to me (all the meat looked overcooked to me :( ). but honestly i just dislike buffets! and i REALLLY dislike buffets i pay for and don't even eat!! (but it was for a friends bday so i'll keep the grumbling to a minimum).

Post cardiac rehab brunch- avocado brioche toast and poached egg with Sriracha and cucumber

also daughter’s bf’s birthday pie- white cranberry juice Gelatin with blue spirulina powder added then topped with whipped topping and strawberries in a store bought shortbread crust. Thankfully the gelatin wasn’t overly sweet and the tart was a nice balance. He loved it btw.

Same!! Deviled and fried are the only ones I can tolerate. Scrambled and the smell of scrambled make me want to throw up.
Just post sleeve. Weird huh.

eggs have never been an issue until last year. Love omelettes and scrambled eggs were what i ordered if we went out for Breakfast. Oh devilled eggs. Used to make them a lot in the 70s can’t believe they’re still so popular. Somethings just always taste good. I do like a fresh prawn salad with a Marie Rose sauce … a prawn cocktail in other words. 😁

$65 for a salad. Yikes! This is what I don’t like. How we get caught with paying a lot for food or alcohol we just can’t eat or drink anymore or subsidising others’ meals (bill splitting). Think I recently shared about wanting to get a single glass of champagne for myself but was forced to join the group purchase of a bottle. I didn’t even have one full glass while they had almost 2 glasses each. My share cost me 1.5 x the price of a single glass I wanted to order. While lovely it was as an expensive bottle. And the bun less halloumi burger I once ordered. Charged the same $18 price & got a slice of Tomato, a small lettuce leaf & a slice of halloumi. Sigh!!

Going pretty well! It’s forcing me to exercise 3 days a week and I dare say I might enjoy it.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

      Losing weight is my dream

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

      2. OhMyGawdItzKla

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
