    Nina88 reacted to Katie713 in Hispanic/latino Sleevers?   
    I'm Chicana and lovin my sleeve. I am already enjoying many of my favorite but healthy foods...ceviche, shrimp cocktail, nopales, frijoles, tacos (I might eat one tortilla but mostly just the insides) menudo/posole/albondigas (about 1/3 of my old serving) salsas. Everything in moderation. I have decided to stay away from rice, fideos, flour tortillas, papas and most all sweets....but it is totally doable. For a ton of light Latin inspired recipes try skinnytaste.com.

    ....sexy purple panties!!!!! YEAH BABY!!!! I'm starting to feel "normal" again!!! I feel like I'm coming back to me.
    Speaking of which...my poor husband has to take extra Vitamins and keep up on his fluids and electrolytes. I'm flat wearing him out. My sex drive has gone into super-hyper-speed-freaky-can't-get-enough mode.
    So ladies.....if your libido is in the ditch....just wait.....just wait. (Oh, and exercise. A LOT).
    Thank you sleeve. Thank you Dr. Kim. And Thank you God!!!

    Nina88 reacted to shrinkydinkme in I Reached Underhunder Today! Have You Made It?   
    I just reached UNDERHUNDER! Yep, less then a hundred pounds left to reach goal. I am 5 and a half weeks out from my sleeve surgery and 25 pounds down since that day. So excited to have made it to what is 1/3 of the journey down for me. Survived a 10 day stall and am currently 4 days from regular foods. For me these first 6 weeks, that seemed like they would take so long with the recovery and special foods, seemed to fly by. Thanks to all of you and the support you have given me, and thank you Jesus for the hope and freedom that I have.

    No leak test after surgery and I am not sure if they did one during the surgery, it was never mentioned and I never asked.

    Beans, Beans, Beans and you can make your own healthy refried or sauteed beans. You can add cheese to them too, yummy. Take one can of black beans and one can of red kidney beans or pinto beans. for your first time I would use one can until you decide you like it, add some salt, pepper and a little garlic powder or chicken seasoning to it and then us a potatoe masher to mash and squash them up really good in a bowl. You will be stirring and mashing at the same time. Then add 1/2 chopped onion to your frying pan with two tbls spoon of olive oil. Once the onions are sauteed, add your beans, cook and stir for around 10-15 min or until all the liquid is gone. Then eat them with some tortillas or whole wheat toast. I'm gluten free so no bread for me.

    My doctor required 15 in about 3 weeks I had only lost 11.4 pounds, I was so nervous going to my preop appointment, I thought for sure he is going to cancel. He was very pleased to see that I gave it my best effort. Do the best you can. Go to a gym or do an exercise video something I was working out 2-3 hours a day. You can do this!!!!

    Nina88 got a reaction from alliemm in Thoughts On Unjury?   
    I'm 7 days post op and besides the Isopure my unflavored Unjury Protein is an essential part of my diet. I add it to my oatmeal, Jello, pudding, chicken broth and cream Soups. It doesn't taste any different, but it makes the jello cloudy but I feel better knowing I'm getting that extra protein in. I'm getting ready to order a 2nd can.

    Wow that is crazy.... they made me take a pregnancy test an hour before surgery and said there have been people that they have had to tell, like you. I know there must be so many emotions. I can only imagine as I think back to both of my surprise pregnancies. All I know is that God is always good and knows what He is up to. I am sure that His timing is perfect and if you have asked yourself if you should do this right now.... you have your answer. I will be praying of you to have peace and comfort as your process what all of this means for you and your family.
