Hi all! Happy weekend. I have my surgery next Wednesday- I am so excited! I am doing the endoscopic sleeve and have about 80 lbs to lose. Still so frustrated that I got here to begin with but enough looking back- excited about the journey to come. I am a major researcher and want to be proactive. I have started to list foods I will eat. And have begun to purchase what I can which won’t expire too soon. This is helping me mentally prepare and adding to the excitement. Of course the food list for any bariatric surgery is very limited and gradually increases over time. I would love to hear about your favorites, what for you through the mundane list and anything creative you came up with throughout the initial months of your new food journey.
Cheers! Jennifer

Jennifer, I felt this same way. I cried when I was having my psychological consult about that very thing. But the doctor told me that I should be proud of myself and not feel shame. She said this is not going to be easy, you are making a commitment. Luckily, my sister (also named Jennifer) had the same advice and is incredibly supportive. I'm happy you're excited. You should be. I'm three weeks out and it's been very interesting adjusting to limited foods, not being particularly hungry, and not being able to eat the way I use to when I feel emotional.

I watch videos on YouTube of a woman who had the surgery a couple of years ago and has posted since the beginning. She has a nice presence and covers so many topics including what she eats now, recipes, etc. It's called My Level 10 Life on YouTube.

check the blog "the World According to Eggface" . She's a long-time vet of bariatric surgery and has always loved to cook. She has lots of recipes and food ideas for people in all the different post-op stages.
