I have my 3rd appointment with the dietician and psychologist tomorrow, and an appointment with the Bariatric APRN. I should get cleared by them for surgery. The next step would be the pre-surgery class and to meet with one of the program's surgeons.

I will be at the appointments for about 2 hours. They start at 9:30, so I will be going straight to work, after. Because I'll be gone all day, I started to prep my food today. As I was making my lunch, I realized that I pretty much eat the same thing every day.

People say one of the issues they have with being on a "diet" in they end up eating the same thing and get bored. I realized that I actually feel comfortable and safe. I have an omelet made with one egg and 2/3 c egg whites and shredded cheese (less than an ounce) with fresh veggies (mini peppers, cucumbers, celery, grape tomatoes, or baby carrots) for breakfast; 1.5-2 ounces of sandwich meat and a cheese stick rolled up in a snack size whole wheat tortilla and fresh veggies; dinner has been chicken (4 oz.), quinoa or rice blend (1/2 cup) and cooked veggies. I bought some chicken sausages, and I have been eating them for the last few days. I have two snacks, and that is where I have the most variety. I am not stressing about my food.

    I also find it easier to have a small selection of items I eat.

    When I worked for years I had salad with cottage cheese and a packet of tuna. Then later I switched to a clif bar and an apple because I did not need to keep that in the refrigerator that became a toxic waste dump!

    I tend to stick to the same thing everyday too. Supper is what changes, but my breakfast is always the same.

    It sounds like you have found what works best for you. Fabulous!
    I too can eat the same things, mostly, day after day. They’re varied enough to satisfy my needs.
    Good luck with your busy day

    Not enough variety can mean you miss valuable nutrients which over time leads to deficiencies & illness.

    LOL - my DH takes the same approach, especially with breakfast. He has oatmeal daily. When asked if he gets bored with it, he insists that he has enough variety and decisions to make in the rest of life without needing to extend it to breakfast!
