Replying to @jules_78 original post - Last night went to a spectacular dinner party at a restaurant hosted by an old friend. Ate small, as we must, had had to walk around the block a couple of times when (perhaps not unexpectedly) found I had eaten too much too early in the dinner. Adjusting, adjusting, wished I could have eaten more for the taste of the food, not the need for the food, but that is my deck of cards now. No meltdown but a sense of loss, but comfortable with that. Like wanting the proverbial donut @jules_78 spoke of. Next time will eat even less early on to save a little room for later on. What fun the whole thing was.

The owner of the restaurant talked to me for half an hour about WLS. He needs to do something. It helped me to think if he could consider this given his business I can do it too.

Yes. It does suck. I haven't tried knitting or origami yet, but I bet they will not be as satisfying since they aren't oral.

For the record, I have made 9 (!) afghans since my surgery, 2 full size and 7 baby blankets. Oh, and a couple of dog coats. No obsessive tendencies here.

Not a one, not a one.

Er, how many afghans had you made before surgery?

I'm turned to knitting to occupy my hands after my WLS.  It started with cotton wash/dish cloths - all of which I gave away - hundreds of them.  I'm now knitting a prayer shawl for a neighbour.

Probably 30 in the 30 years prior to my surgery. BWAHAHAHAHA!
