Wondering about stretching your pouch?

While I know that I haven't stretched my pouch, I find myself craving chocolate often... Anyone have any suggestions for stopping or circumventing these cravings?

Same! I was never a chocolate craver before surgery!

I went through a chocolate craving for a while. I bought some 60% cacao chips and put them in the freezer. In the evening I would eat about a tablespoon of them WITH some almonds to add some Protein. It was a nice little treat. Don't need it now. I also have chocolate Protein Drinks for a quick Meal Replacement in a pinch.

I also love adding 1tbsp of cocoa powder (Hershey's Extra Dark) with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon to hot decaff coffee in the evenings. Feels like you're sinning for no extra sugar or artificial sweetener. :) Great polyphenols, a hit of magnesium, Fiber, and serious satisfaction for very very few cals. Add some canned whipped cream for about 10 cals and <1g of carb to feel even more decadent!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
