What the Gobble...(Food gatherings)



Recommended Posts

Today I realized that the food festivities are in FULL EFFECT!!! From office luncheons and potlucks, Friendsgiving, Happy Hours...this is all just a warm-up to the Big Event of fine dining and grandiose entertainment and food comas....THANKSGIVING!!!

Today, I chose smoked turkey from Honeybaked as my Protein and very small servings of carbs at our luncheon. I drank Water, I did have cake, I didn't finish it, I took the remainder of it to my dad's house for him to have. Now, instead of going in my kitchen eating that cake I'm going to drink a Protein Shake and go to bed.

Good work! I'm 1 month post-op today and its our office potluck! I volunteered to make the gravy (store bought lol) and to heat up the pre-purchased ham. I don't like ham so it hasn't been hard to stay away.

I'm just going to avoid it all together today.

I bought Sam's Club gravy and mashed potatoes. I also bought one of those cakes, but a few bites was better than a whole cake in my house.

I am on a pre op diet during Thanksgiving.

I had volunteered to make dessert but since I am not eating it I can't deal with the smell of it in my house so I am going to buy a pie this year.

I'm cooking a full meal, but taking the Desserts out as an offering when I visit others. No dessert left behind in my house, just a slice to taste.

I'm cooking the full meal but substituting low carb sides and no dessert. Well all low carb but 1 side. Hubby begged for mashed potatoes. [emoji849]

We had a Thanksgiving meal at work a few days ago. I put about 2 oz of skinless Turkey on my plate, and about a teaspoon full of several sides on my plate. Huge plate looked pathetically empty... ate the Protein first and then took an hour to finish the rest. Glad I participated without overdoing it. I did skip the rolls and Desserts, but I had just enough potatoes and stuffing to feel like I didn't miss out on anything.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

        I feel ya.
