While you could technically work your way around the 'bland food diet' by not making them super fatty, I can relate in the sense that I have put weight loss on the back burner. I lost about 70 pounds, and maintained that loss for about a year before I felt I was in a position to start again. Set backs happen. That's the 'life' part everyone talks about when learning to work with 'life' getting 'in the way'.
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
I've read that 80% of weight loss is in the food you eat. There's no reason why potatoes and rice etc have to be calorie bombs. Make sure you don't overeat for your lower activity level and ask the doctor just how much you are allowed to do. Running a 5K may be out, but a few leisurely strolls through the garden might still be allowed and still keep you losing weight.
Being healthy is about lifestyle and making the best choices you can when circumstances work against you. Don't give up, just realize you'll need new strategies to overcome this obstacle.
I hope you get well soon and can do all the things you really want to do.

what kind of sick are you?? Why the bland food diet?? Well, hope you get to feeling better soon. And don't be discouraged (I know, that's easier said than done) but hopefully you'll get the ok to start back on your plan sooner than you think.
