Food? Whatever...

The strangest thing has happened. I am no longer obsessed with food. I actually have a hard time imagining food that sounds good or that I want to eat. This makes advance meal planning kind of annoying. I stand in the kitchen each morning and try to decide what I want to eat for breakfast and lunch. Nothing sounds interesting. It is only when I am actually hungry that I can muster up interest in food.

The other night at the movies, I ate part of a candy bar and decided I didn't want anymore. It was actually too sweet. WTF?!?! This has NEVER happened to me before.

Thoughts about food have been my constant companion for as long as I can remember. If I was dieting, they became magnified. This is like something out of a Body Snatcher's movie!

I don't know how or why, but I'll take it!

Very cool! My surgeon says that his patients often refer to the lapband as a "food lobotomy" because they just don't think about food anymore. Can't wait until I can feel that way.

I still think of food, but sweet things became way sweeter to me too.

food lobotomy. nice. lol love that one. gonna have to borrow it.
i find that i'm like that most of the time if i'm at the right fill. most of the time hubby has to make me eat. except when TOM's in town. then? forget it, open the fridge and dump it in. lol my nutritionist says that's normal though. so i'll take it.

I am very jealous.. I sure hope the band works like that for me too! I try really hard to only eat when I am hungry, but it feels like a constant state! I go to bed hungry and wake up hungrier. I would love to never think about food and not need as much to quench the hunger. I'm so glad this is working so well for you!! <3
