Fitting in all my favorite foods



Recommended Posts

On the eve eve of starting my liquid diet, I'm trying to get in those foods that I love. I'm having sushi, miso Soup, and a crab rangoon for lunch (Lunch special). Don't know what for dinner and daytime tomorrow, but tomorrow night my sister is cooking me a feast! Lemon chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, and my fav, green bean casserole (she's a doll). What other foods do you think I should try to get in (before people get testy, I'm still eating smaller portions because I've completely changed my diet)? Anything you were sad you didn't get a last taste of?

Don't worry about people getting testy ...

Enjoy your meals! They all sound healthy in comparison to just eating nutritionally empty things

Your sister sounds amazing

My sister is amazing. Last night she sent me before and after pics of a friend of hers who had the sleeve a year ago, said just in case I needed some motivation. She's also taking my husband and I to the hospital (have to check in at 5:30am) since my husband doesn't drive (medical issues) and picking me up whenever I'm discharged. She's taking good care of me.

I did some of that, too - not a lot, but some. The thing is, at some point you'll be able to eat a lot of those foods again, so it's not like a permanent farewell. Everyone's different, of course, but the only food on your list that I have a hard time tolerating anymore would be the crab rangoon. The fat in it wouldn't sit well with my stomach. A bite or two would probably "work", though.

I could go forever not having crab rangoon... this is my goodbye. But sushi and miso Soup are life! I know I'll be able to have them again so I'm alright. Don't know about pickled ginger though... that will probably bother my stomach and that makes me sad.

I can eat pickled ginger, so you may be fine. Ginger is actually calming for stomachs (don't know about whatever they pickle it in, though - but whatever it is, it doesn't bother MY stomach)

Well that's encouraging. I know ginger is good for the stomach, I just thought the pickling would cause irritation. But good. I love the stuff.

No, I didn't have any food funerals, but enjoy yours.

I just ate normally honestly. I would have mini panic attacks worrying about foods I wouldn’t be able to eat anymore (because I’m a food addict). However,post surgery, I don’t miss any of it I have a Boston cream pie in my fridge that I have no desire to touch, I don’t even have a taste for it. I’m thankful for this tool because, clearly, I was losing my battle with food addiction

Alas, food funerals don't prevent post-op cravings. ;)

Oh I'm sure I'm going to still want green bean casserole. But at Thanksgiving I can have a tablespoon of it and be happy. That's my hope.

Hopefully. Green bean casserole doesn't sound like something one would have a food funeral on though. However, I'm not familiar with Thanksgiving foods. Is it something especially calorie rich?

I have no issue with pickled foods of any sort, including ginger

It has cream of mushroom Soup and fried onions in it. It’s just kinda carb heavy.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
