how has surgery impacted your hunger?



Recommended Posts

It helped for a short while. But I still had a lot of head hunger. Now the hunger is back, and I'm just very relieved that during my honeymoon phase, I had the chance to learn to crave new healthy foods. It's not that I don't stray or have cravings for bad foods, but I'm very satisfied with eating healthy meals.
I have a fairly large capacity, so I choose to fill my tool with lots of leafy greens, raw and al dente veggies, limited healthy fats, limited dairy, and great dense lean Protein.< br>
I'm craving some serious salad greens. It's a new feeling but I'm just waiting for the day when I can have it!

Right now what I crave most is taste and flavor.I feel like today everything tastes like flour paste. And way back in my little Frustr8 days I did eat paste, got to be a school paste connoisseur. Carter's was the company that had the smoothest and best. I ate it partly for boredom, but mainly to stave off hunger until I could get real food. Yeah, even back then the Ghrelin monster had reared its ugly head
Just like I have alluded in the past, some people are BORN TO BE WILD ; well I definitely was BORN TO BE FAT and even the times I fell within normal parameters, under-cover lurked Obesity, just biding its time until it could reclaim me as its😪🎪 own.

I still do not have a lot of stomach hunger, small pangs and if I am out shopping I can go a very long time without eating.

Head hunger is always around - see food - oooo I want that, never mind I am not hungry. It improves if you are not in crisis or anxiety mode.

It also helps to seriously enjoy the food you do eat, buy the shrimp, the asparagus, the tiny brussels sprouts sprinkle with sea salt and sliced almonds. Don't eat distracted, no phone, no TV, not in the car - unless unavoidable circumstances arise, use small salad plates, chew, chew, chew. Good luck.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
