Didn't your Dr or nutritionist give you that card saying you surgery and need to eat smaller portions? There's also one you can get online. Let me find the link.

Yeah they don't like you paying less for kids meal so just get adults menu and ask for entree size meal

mine is on the reverse of my dietician Roy's business card. " Why" I asked" does Ohio State do it THAT WAY?" He chuckled and told me if I was still getting hasseled his business and home # are there and they just can Call Him and he'll verbally verify all the info is correct. Only had to once in all the time he's been employed there! So in Columbus Ohio it is well- accepted. Haven't tried mine out yet, I eat such an abysmally small portion I haven't darkened a Restaurant Portico as yet, and YES I Am coming close to my one-year Surgiversity , it will be September 5th , a Wonderful Day ranking in importance with marriage and my 3 childbirth, for truly that DAY Frustr8 was reborn, remodeled, renovated and realigned. And it Has Not been a Smooth Easy Journey but it's Mine, and I live to fight another day, and I can do it with streamlining of my own now, for I have Worked Hard to Get Where I'm at NOW. Glad I got the One and Done surgery , don't think I could Do All This a Second Time, Might not survive the Next Time. Might not have equalled the promos in the Bariatric Manual but it's Still Good, now and forevermore! And Cool to the Treetops for littler ME!👓😛👍🌈

I never had one of those cards, but I've heard not all places accept them. Not sure if there's anything you can do about it if they're not going to accept it. A lot of places don't really have kids' meals we can eat, though - hotdogs, chicken nuggets, Peanut Butter & jelly sandwiches. I looked at kids' menus a lot early after surgery (thinking I could at least ask for one of the meals), but I rarely saw any that would "work" for me.

Most restaurants will accommodate kids’ meals or bariatric cards. There are always some that won’t.

I order an appetizer, side dish or share a plate with my husband. I usually order full size meal, swap the carbs out with veggies and take the leftovers home for no cook meals later.

As one who went to restaurants 3-4 times a week post surgery I find myself feeling uncomfortable in them today. I don't go to restaurants that much but when I do this is my plan of action. Who ever I'm with I tell them to order two meals that they want. I take one and eat what I want or what I can of it. I then have the rest packed and the other person takes it home. I have my foods that I eat at home and I know that I won't eat the left overs. So as not to waste food I give them to my dining companion.

Thanks for the link. My surgeon never mentioned this. I'm going to order one.

I've had that experience at the chain Beef O'Brady's where they wouldn't let me order off the kids menu. This was before I had WLS. But if you've noticed, most things on the kids menu are stuff you don't want anyway like mac and cheese, corn dogs, pizza, and french fries.

      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".
