    Food Before and After Photos

    I’ve upped my homemade corn tortilla game. 60 calories for each tortilla. (I weigh them) 3 ingredients, Masa, water and salt. No oil, no fat. You do need a cast iron tortilla press though, cheap ones don’t cut it. It’s a great way to bump up boring dinners and add a bunch of veggies. We are huge fans of Rick Bayless sauces and marinades, Frontera Grill. Really low in calories and not bland at all. So far so good, my weight has maintained stable 2.5 years out. I’m super conscious about my weight and have to be diligent. I think Americans should get bonus points this year. I’m exhausted! Anyway, I highly recommend making your own tortillas!

    Gastric Sleeve done 4th January

    January 5th was my sleeve day. I've had a few moments of regret too, but I find the best way to get through those times is to remind myself that it isn't going to be like this forever. Hydrating myself has to be my full-time job right now, so I can only get in short naps during the day, even though I want to sleep half the time. I've been drinking out of a 2oz cup which helps me track how much I drink in an hour. Agreed that it's best if you're sitting up while drinking. Less reflux and bubbles in your chest. Your smoothie sounds so delicious. I'll have to put powdered instant coffee on my shopping list! I think my new stomach will be too tender to drink straight-up coffee for a while, so it will be nice to scratch that itch in the meantime.

    Food Before and After Photos

    I am terrible about shopping every purchase TO DEATH (I had been shopping for a new TV for over two years before I finally gave in and bought one on Black Friday). When I bought my air fryer, I was actually shopping for a deep fryer (this was way before I started my weight loss journey, when I was in an "eat what tastes good" phase), but I kept seeing air fryers in my search results. I decided that I would give the air fryer a chance and buy a deep fryer later, and I just picked one! I bought the Amazon's Choice air fryer and I could not be happier. I never did go back and buy a deep fryer.

    I found a tea that seems to really work in a short order with constipation. I am not a fan of Smooth Move and my friend introduced me to a homemade ginger tea but it was a lot of work and I didnt always have the ingredients around for it. I am always trying things on amazing Amazon and tried this one and in about three hours you could say I had "large results" !! I did not get cramps or super bloated from it. Highly recommend it https://www.amazon.com/Pink-Stork-Constipation-Biodegradable-Discomfort/dp/B07CGKDFJY/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=herbal+tea+constipation&qid=1610057781&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyMUNWTFpaVUYxMFlSJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMjQ1NTA1SjM1Skk5SlJKTkdWJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAxMTc2MTYyRllZNEo0QlkzRzVQJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

    you can get sample packets of most/all of the Syntrax flavors in several places - including directly from Syntrax, on Amazon, or here on BP.

    I am not liking any food

    Great point - food is fuel...just not sure I can overcome the extreme revolt for most food....time will help I am sure.

    So....I got approved!!!!

    You’re right I feel like I have been research and reading for the last year. I could probably do the damn surgery myself lol but seriously thank you for the advice.

    liquids go right through you - so it'd be hard to stretch your stomach with those. I was always able to drink more than I thought I should be able to. I don't remember anything making me sick, either. Fortunately, I DID lose my hunger (it came back at five months out, though), but other than that, my experience was similar to yours. There were days early on that I wondered if I'd even had surgery!
