I do! I a little on occasion after my Protein if I have room. It sits a little heavy, but no real issues.

I am 5 months post op.

I think I'm going to have to choose either mashed potatoes or stuffing this Thanksgiving... and there's no contest, mashed potatoes hands down. bread tends to sit heavy on me anyway, and I'd rather save that for a couple of bites of apple pie (hate pumpkin pie).

Nope to potatoes cooked in any way. Too heavy & too starchy also. Converts to fat more quickly. Don’t miss it as I rarely cooked them for myself anyway. Sure my dad is rolling in his grave as he was a potato grower. 😁

Had a small amount of stuffing (teaspoon I guess) from a bbq chicken once. Didn’t really enjoy it. No homemade stuffing because of the bread & the butter we used to make it.

But it’s a personal choice.

On a day to day basis, no. I don't eat potatoes, rice, bread, etc. But at Thanksgiving dinner for the last two years, I allowed myself to taste everything (which was enough to fill me up). So potatoes are not part of my regular diet, but a rare treat.

I’ll be 1 mo post op and my nutritionist said to take a teaspoon of whatever I want from the table, put it on my plate, and start with the Protein. Im sure I won’t get through it all but just being able to taste if I want to will help. I’m making a sugar free pumpkin cheesecake too and hope to be able to have a bite of that too. Im not much of a sweet eater but I do miss it at the holidays. I copied this picture that someone posted on FB and I think it will work for me.

It’s all about moderation. Give a little here. Take a little there. When it comes to Christmas (no thanksgiving in Australia but Christmas is BIG here & celebrations can last a couple of days) I eat much the same way as I do any other day: meat & vegetables in the same portion sizes I usually have. We don’t tend to use lots of cheese, cream, heavy dressings, etc. anyway which makes things easier. I avoid sweet foods like Desserts, cakes, etc. 99% of the time but Christmas Day is one of the rare times I will have something sweet: a little Christmas cake, a sliver of pudding, a little jelly & custard (no pavlova or cheesecake). I’m the one who always makes the desserts for Christmas & I make them using real sugar because I eat it so rarely & have such a small amount of the desserts it’s okay. This will be my third Christmas post surgery & it hasn’t caused a hiccup to my weight yet - fingers crossed it continues. I should also add we have at least an hour break between our main meal & dessert during which time we go for a walk around the neighbourhood to look at Christmas lights, etc., play cricket, swim (not me - lol) or play some other games in the yard with the little ones.

I have a spoonful of mash but have a fair bit of gravy with chicken and parsley sauce with fish it helps if you mince it with a fork

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
