Holiday Party Tact



Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anybody else has any phrases or tips they use for the big food gatherings? I find that I get questioned at work occasionally.

I sat down at the Christmas lunch with my little bit of food and somebody said "is that all you're going to eat?"

I said "yep, saving room for dessert." My plate usually has 1/4 of the food everybody else's has. 😳

My other go to phrase is "I'm trying to be skinny." Or I tell them that I try eat about 200 cal. every 2-3 hours.

I also let people know when they question my amount of food. That I made a New Years Resolution and am proud to say that I’ve been successful in keeping my resolve this year and have promised my self to keep going. Then I ask them how are they doing with their New Years Resolution? Usually they stop questioning me at that point and I encourage them to keep trying with their resolve.

I'm enjoying everyone's friendship and company here, so I took only a small amount of things. I'm sure everything is tasty. Enjoy it for yourself but thank you for your concern.😝🍝

I decided pre-op that I was going to be loud and proud about the fact I had gastric. Everybody in the world knows. lmao. Two of my bosses at the Xmas Potluck last week didn't know and I had 2 cheese cubes, 2 green Beans and 3 shrimp on my plate and I casually joked that it was the first time I had veggies in 6 weeks and they asked why and I was like "because I had gastric bypass". BOOM. Now they know. lol. Most of the time people think it's awesome OR they just shut up. :)

EDIT: CRAP I DIDN'T REALIZE THIS WAS THE WLS VETERANS FORUM I AM SORRY FOR THE INTRUSION! LOL! PLEASE DON'T HATE ME. *disappears*

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.
