Olive and herb Focaccia made with store bought dough. Everyone loved it and I ate a small area that I deemed was “the crust” 🤣

Dinner- 6” multigrain roasted chicken with fresh mozzarella, banana peppers, tomatoes, double pickles, and spinach with the sweet onion teriyaki sauce on the side. My youngest even helped by taking a big bite!




Dessert- Mississippi mud brownies- I took one bite and I was done.

Ended up eating this instead- 185 calories

todays lunch:

a scoop of last night's "leftovers" risotto, two asparagus spears and bacon-wrapped cod with lemon-garlic-caper sauce.

estimating 600 calories for the plate. ate ½ the fish, ½ the asparagus and almost all the risotto.

this was a little in the heavy and rich side, but still so yum. Mr. ate my leftovers PLUS his own portion that was like double my original portion, geez.

Lazily written chicken recipe-

Ricotta, boneless skinless chicken thighs, spinach, onion, garlic, olive oil (about a tsp), mozzarella, and cheddar cheese. Measure everything else with your heart and judgement.

Preheat oven to 350. Heat pan over medium high heat. Mince onion and garlic, chop spinach. add oil to pan. Sautée onion, garlic and spinach until wilted. Add in ricotta and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in mozzarella. Make slits in chicken thighs and stuff with ricotta mixture. Top with shredded cheddar and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Turn heat up to 425 and cook another 15 minutes until top is bubbly and golden brown in spots (think caramel candy color)

Dinner:

Toasted sourdough focaccia slathered with pesto and spicy mayo. Melted fresh mozzarella, blistered rosemary and garlic cherry tomatoes, sliced heirloom tomatoes, baby spinach, chili crisp, turkey for hubby and plain for me. This was so good, I ate 1/4 of mine.

      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.

        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! ❤️
