What I eat, besides Avocados.

Since Lap Band Gal has asked folks to post what they eat and so many of you have already. I figured I would follow suit.

I pretty much eat what I feed my family, I don't make any special meals for myself, but this is what I ate yesterday:

6:00 am 1/2 cup of milk, one teaspoon sugar and coffee

9:00 am 1/2 avocado and 4 saltines

12:00 split peas soup, 4 saltines and 1 tablespoon garden veggie cream cheese (I always keep a can of soup at work and a couple of Lean Cuisines in case I'm by myself and can't leave)

4:00 Greek yogurt with honey

6:00 2 glasses Fume Blanc white wine

7:00 about 1-2 oz grilled pork tenderloin (it wasn't going down well), 2 tablespoons potatoes and some winter squash and yellow squash

8:00 one more glass of wine.

Today for breakfast I had 1/2 cup of milk, 1 0z of cheese and about 1/2 c of left over potatoes for breakfast and for lunch I had a small Wendy's chili with 4 saltines.

Like Jenny, I eat whatever I'm feeding my family and I bring left overs to work or I eat Wendy's chili (which I love and this is the perfect lunch!)

That's about it. I also have my Viactiv calcium chew and multivitamin at work for dessert, and when it's cold I'll have a sugar free coco mixed with coffee around 3:00. I don't use artificial sweeteners, except for the one in the coco, I use one teaspoon of sugar if I want to sweeten my coffee, that's 15 calories. I haven't been a stellar looser that's for sure, but I do enjoy my life and my food. Some days, I'm way better than others, some days I'm really hungry, some days not. I never have trouble getting my water in, I drink throughout the day. I do like to drink wine and an occasional scotch, but hey, I do all that I enjoy and I'm still losing, even if it is slow.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, I plan on it!
Big Hugs!

I love avocados too! They are the supreme super food. Great for kids too. So versatile and delicious.

Slow and steady wins the race in this weightloss game. Sounds like you've got it all sorted!

How great that you are losing and still enjoying life, and not feeling deprived! Isn't that the goal for us all? (Or shouldn't it be??)

Sounds terrific to me! I do love avocados.

I have just sat down and read all you blog entries from beginning to now, and wow, congratulations! I really enjoyed it. I am in the process of deciding if I should have this surgery. I have a lot of issues of do I really need it or am I just lazy. Also I love to cook and I am a total foodie, and fearful of going to a party and being forced to choose, 'Do I have just a hor d'oeuvre or do I wait for the main course, for the rest of my life!
I have attended the seminar, talked with friends who have had the surgery, and now reading blogs and the book 'Bandwagon'. But the one thing I am really looking for is blogs written by men. I guess being men are more private and reserved with this experience. That being said, I may 'blog' my journey so there can be, as you say, more 'male perspective'. Any advise or male lap band blogs you recommend?

WLS community really has a wide variety of food. More likely, if the patient turns out to be one of the vegetarians or vegans. It's not that easy though but it would be preferred by professionals like Phoenix lap band surgeons.
