I am having trouble getting used to not having large quantities of whatever kinds of food I want, when I want them. My eating was my addiction, and I feel like I am in detox! It was more than nutrition for me, it was what calmed me down, and helped me deal with stress, it was my comfort zone. Food was the focus of my life. How do you deal with the restrictions? I just want to eat everything in sight just because... and I can't! I am 5 weeks post op and it is suddenly hitting me - I'd been doing better until now, it hasn't been easy, but it was easier than it is now. I only have 8 days until I am off the restricted diet, but this is the hardest part so far.

I have had a sweet tooth my entire life. When around carbs, or sugar, I feel as though all control is lost and I just have to eat. I find myself running to bakeries, and grocery stores the moment I have money in my pocket. I could buy three packages of Oreos, and eat them all in under an hour. I hate myself for it afterwards. I hate the way it makes my body feel, I hate the way I can't stop...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
