I don't post new posts on here often, but I thought this was a little interesting and wanted to know whether anyone else has experienced this. Yesterday was my one month surgiversary (Yay!) and I went to my mother's for Easter dinner. Knowing there was going to be lots of delicious food I wasn't going to eat, I already planned that I would have half a deviled egg and maybe a couple bites of ham or chicken, thinking I wouldn't have room for anything else. Well I was sharing a plate with my son so I cut about a 6 oz piece of ham, thinking I would eat about 1 or 2 oz and he would eat most of the rest. Well...while I was mindlessly eating while talking to my mom, I noticed that he ended up eating very little of it and I ate the rest! Our portions were pretty much the reverse of what I thought they would be. I couldn't believe I was able to eat that much (dense) meat in one sitting. The most I had ever had was 2 oz of really moist meatloaf and I was surprised by that at the time. And what was most interesting to me was that I could have eaten more. I didn't, but I certainly felt like I could have. I didn't have that feeling I normally get when I feel satisfied while eating since the surgery. To a degree, I felt like I hadn't really eaten anything. Then I started getting nervous thinking I messed up my restriction with one meal (irrational, I know), but I was brought back to reality when I ate half a deviled egg about three or four hours later and boom there was the restriction again. I couldn't even finish the half egg. I can already see it is going to be strange getting to know this new tummy of mine.
