The thing that is helping me is reminding myself that this is somewhat temporary. While I won't be able to consume the quantities I do now, eventually I will be able to have bites of everything, within reason. The severe restriction is short lived and as long as I change my daily eating substantially, I figure I will be able to have bits of anything I want on special occasions.
Congrats and I wish you all the best!
Now that I had my surgery, I'm glad I did that. Again I know it's sooooo wrong. When I see a comercial or see food in my daily life I can pass it by knowing I already had it for the last time. I don't crave the food like I think I would've.
soooooo baaaaaaaad. I know!

I found during these 4 months that the food wasn't as good as I remembered and I felt ill the whole time eating this way besides gaining 25 pounds. Thus, I was more than ready to start my preop diet. I'm glad I did eat all I wanted because I don't miss anything or want any of the high sugar and fatty foods now thinking about how sick I made myself.
My digestive system is much happier the way I eat with WLS. I am having fun figuring out ways to prepare our meals using recipes for WLS and tweaking our favorite meals. I certainly have not felt deprived. My family has loved everything I've cooked. I've had no problems finding foods I can eat when we travel. Most restaurants have a wide variety on the menu these days. I never cared for fast food so we only stop for it when we go through small towns that don't seem to have any other choice. Still I've been able to find some protein to hold me until we get to our destination.
