So tomorrow is the big day. I am a bag of emotions now. Excited, happy, anxious, stressed and hesitant at the same time. As much as I know that this is going to be the best thing I can do for myself, I feel as if I am losing part of myself. food has always played a major role in my life. I love to cook and barbeque. Well everyone wish me luck.

Best wishes! Your relationship with food will change and it will be better!!! You will still cook and BBQ, but it will be healthy. Right now your relationship with food is a dysfunctional one. It is not helping you. Once it becomes a real partnership, it will be fun and exciting, and without the guilt and remorse. You are not losing a part of yourself - you are discovering a whole new you! Looking forward to hearing about your progress.

Good luck. :D You will do great and will still BBQ etc just make wiser food choices and only eat small amounts. The way I got past that feeling was that if I could still just have 1 teaspoon of my fave Indian foods then that would be enough, I would still get all the amazing flavours but not need to eat enough for 2 people every time I ate Indian food!

I am 5 weeks out and can confirm that I can tolerate chilli and other spices so it is allllllllllllllllll good for me haha!

Also, I have noticed I can now watch food shows on tv, or youtube and not feel the need to go and stuff my face because watching them made me hungry, it is actually a miracle and I am enjoying family cooking without trying to everything as I cook.

A new you is yet to emerge and yeah you will have to adjust but you will be on earth longer now to get used to them and enjoy them AND still enjoy feeding others with your cooking :D

Best wishes and a speedy recovery!

You must be having your surgery about now, soon you will be out and in recovery. I think we all worry over our connection to food and how it relates to our everyday life. My husband is still doing all the cooking, but I can't wait to get back to it cooking healthier versions of my favorites. Last night I made a cup of broth and it was amazing! I actually made noise while drinking it, yummo. Best of luck on your journey and we look forward to hearing all about it!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
