I'm craving either plain ol chocolate or salty pretzels. Nuts help with the pretzel craving but haven't figured out how to deal with the chocolate craving yet!

Make sugar free hot cocoa: 1 cup milk (fairlife to get more protien), 1TBL unsweetened cocoa, 1 packet sugar substitute of choice, a drop of vanilla, and a teeny tiny bit of salt. Made with fairlife milk: 92 cal, 14g Protein, 9g carbs, 1g fat

I'm craving veggies. I don't have enough room to get my protein and eat many veggies. I used to have a big ol' veg stir fry for dinner and salad for lunch on most days and I miss both.

Don't eat processed meats like lunch meat. Full of nitrates that cause cancer

I'm about 7 months out. I haven't picked up cocoa roasted almonds but I got some chocolate PB2 and I've been enjoying that on rice cakes.

For a sweet fix, I am enjoying the chocolate oikos with a Tbsp of PB2 mixed in.

I still just want a freaking SALAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crunchy, savory, yummy salad!

Other than a tootsie pop at a basketball game, I have not had a sweet since prior to pre-op diet. Oddly, I crave salty/spicy almost entirely. Tried to eat pho....epic fail. couldn't get much at all down the hatch!

I did cave and do Chinese....I made 4 meals out of it MINUS the rice.

I am eating and enjoying salads now with ZERO trouble. I can only eat a few bites because I want my Protein, but it's better than nada! I've also added in berries, which is just exciting beyond compare for me!!

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
