I’ve had mashed and roasted potatoes. I haven’t tried fries yet. Hopefully I won’t like them when I do, but I doubt I would be that lucky.

I've gone into this with the mindset that no food is off limits, and at least for me, that really worked (YMMV). I've had fries a ton of times ... like, 5 each time. That's it.

I can really recommend working on re-gaining the feeling of what full is. So many of us have been training ourselves to ignore hunger/satiety signals for diet purposes that it's very difficult to truly feel it.

You know that whole thing they say about turn off everything when you eat, do nothing but eat, sit for 15 minutes with your meal etc.? It seems like something we can't reasonably do, and I sure can't, but trying it out is a mind-blowing experience for some.

Just sitting there with your food, trying to really feel what it does when your body starts telling you "hey, thanks for the food, I'm good now!" Can highly recommend just trying it out for the experience.

I’d try switching to sweet potatoes if you really want a potato or cauliflower mash. I wouldn’t eat regular potatoes.

Im 5 weeks and 2 days out. I am tolerating all the allowed foods easily. Any one have experience with potatoes at this stage?

I did, because it was one of the few approved foods that tasted good to me. Even now, at 9 weeks, I still eat them with a laughing cow piece melted in a serving…. What’s weird is that when I hit a stall for a week, a couple of servings of potatoes kicks it back into gear. I have no idea why, but it does

I honestly have eaten what I wanted since 3 days after surgery 12/22

I know my limits and haven't had any problems.

My dietitian wasn't happy but, I've been doing what works for me and have lost 15pounds.

I don't deprive myself because that makes the craving stronger.

It's not everyday so I think im fine.

Your dietitian wasn't happy because at 3 days your staple line is still healing and you risk busting it open.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
