I have my appointment with the Bariatric Centers dietitian today at 2:30. I am nervous. Mostly I am nervous about having to get weighed again. My scale says I am doing well but will theirs? It's crazy that I am stressed about that, how could their scale be that different? I guess that's the anxiety disorder in me. Oh well, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I am not expecting to learn anything radically new at today's appt. I do have to pass a quiz about nutrition and the lap band though. I think it'll be fine, I learn quickly.

On the food front I have eliminated foods from my diet that I will not be able to eat post op. I have not been eating pasta, rice or bread products for the most part. I do eat some light multi grain bread (it's really thin) but I think that's it. I gave up the muffins, bagels, english muffins, and white bread. It hasn't been too bad so far.

Tonight I am going to try a new meal. I have been craving homemade mac and cheese for a while. When I really thought about it it's not the pasta part I crave it's the yummy sauce. I bought some cauliflower and reduced fat cheese to make the sauce with and am going to try substituting the cauliflower for the pasta. We'll see. I know a lot of people use cauliflower as a substitute for pasta and potatoes so I am hopeful it will be edible.

OK, enough talk about food it's making me hungry! I'll be back later to update on today's appt.!
