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*

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
