My 1st question is: I'm a vegetarian and I need Medifast recipes? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question I got... I've been gone a week of so, just a busy couple of weeks. I have to share that I really missed.

Reading.

Your posts, getting to hear the successes (and struggles) we share here..

As we approach a busier season (Thanksgiving, and Christmas), I wonder if there's been much anticipation of concerns from this group?.

How many will be experiencing your first holiday season POST.

Surgery.

? What will you do differently? Are you concerned about temptations or seeking substitutions so you can also enjoy the old favorites, in maybe a NEW way?.

This will be my second holiday season, post op and I found I still did make a few of the family favorites for treats for them, and realized the baking I'd done for 30+ years didn't require tasting, so I didn't. I found it helpful to keep a glass of Crystal lite or some sliced fruit handy, in case I felt the need to 'nibble', but really that wasn't an issue for me, surprisingly last year. I will do less baking this year I've decided, but will still have some pies and desserts for both celebrations..

Neither will be tempting to me, thanks to wonderful ideas from Eggface that are now part of my family traditions In fact, as you've probably found too, many of my non-weight losing friends enjoy most of these same recipes, and appreciate something healthy and different. Good time to start thinking about that, making a list of what you will make for meals or entertaining and be on top of it all..

I know I find once things start rolling, it seems like there is one obligation after another, plus company, work obligations, parties and we can become tired, and overwhelmed..even with the fun things we are looking forward to, right? Keep up that.

Working out.

, taking time to plan for YOU, so you don't slip into the "ut ohs.".

What do you think?.

This will be my first holiday post-surgery but I'm not nervous. I am afraid to eat anything I'm not supposed to...I guess that's good! LOL.

I already told my sister that I will probably just eat some turkey and a bite or two of mashed potatoes. I told her not to make me anything special b/c I can't really eat much...

This will also be my first Thanksgivng and Christmas post op. I am skipping the traditional dinner for Thanksgiving, hubby and I are going out to Cracker Barrell with my mom. Keeping it easy and no leftovers..

I have to be honest, I am dreading Christmas dinners and parties. I want to enjoy time with my family but admit that I will miss alot of things I normally enjoy. I am afraid that I will just want to stay home and not celebrate, I am trying to work on my mind a little so I can hopefully overcome these feelings...

Good replies, ladies, and I wish you all success this first go round with the holidays. That planning ahead, is always a good idea, and for those limited to liquids or soft foods, you will have that built in limitation to help you. It IS about who you are with, not what you (or they) are eating!.

Kimcan- I would just like to encourage you to participate, and not withdraw out of fear and concernI have learned (and still remind myself), that it is normal to find foods appealing, even wish you could have them. Down the road, you will be able to bites of many of them. Yes, some things we should forever.

Stay away.

From, but honestly, so many good substitutions *(Do check out eggface's site, if you haven't already for many good ideas)* I can honestly say I have felt like I could find something to satisfy me if I wanted it, with some of these great recipes..

Any other ideas or tricks that work for you in areas of:.

1) foods you can eat and enjoy without feelings cheated.

2) alternatives to eating/snacking during these times.

3) what you are planning to do different this year?.
