    That is why I was thinking of this! We are an on the go society and many of us don't have all day to prepare meals or even do those plan ahead frozen meals.
    Of course they wouldn't Beas expensive as regular lean cuisines or ww meals since they would be smaller!
    Minimal packaging is always great and I'm hoping it would all recycle! I think most of what we buy now is recyclable

    I only use organic/hormone free meats when I cook. I love organic veggies and fruits too. So much more flavor!
    I wouldn't use chemicals. I know we need to make use of every tiny bit of our sleeves (or rny/band pouches)! I wouldn't want to fill them up with bad stuff!

    How far post op are you? And what are the recommendations by your doc right now?
    Soups saved me during soft/purée and mechanical soft diet.

    I'm not even sure who to contact, but I was thinking...wouldn't it be a great idea to have bariatric size meals ready to go for people.
    When I went to the grocery store, even a lean cuisine or Atkins meal is just too much to eat.
    Who would want to venture into a business doing frozen and fresh meals and Snacks for wls patients?
    Does anyone know how to go about this and who to contact?
    It would be great to have small portion sizes or even 2-3 portions in a box that are separated. It would have to be great tasting food and many varieties! I for one don't eat red meat or pork so using ground turkey and chicken would be ideal for me. I know others eat meat so having thinks like a regular chili and a turkey chili and a vegetarian option would be awesome.
    Anyways this is an idea that I'm floating around because regular food is just too much.

    auntiemel got a reaction from Comeflywithme in Goal weight and family negative family members   
    My goal weight is 150 or maybe even lower. I am only 5'4 and that would put me in a normal BMI range. I told my sister my goal weight and she said that that is ridiculous and too skinny!
    For me, it is what I am striving for, but I'm wondering if she is just jealous, as then I would no longer be the "biggest sister" out of us 4 girls. Whenever her and I get into an argument I can guarantee that she will say something about my weight, and if I get to be less than her, I think she will have issues with it. I'm not sure what her weight is, but it is over 200. She was telling me I should make my goal 250!!!!!????? Well if that was my goal, I wouldn't have even had surgery. The whole thing frustrates me to no end!!!!

    I wasn't going to tell people at first, but now I'm blogging it, and I tell most people I meet.
    Going out to dinner with people is easier to explain why I'm eating so little and why I usually just eat a few bites off my hubby's or sisters plate.

    auntiemel got a reaction from shelby77 in OVER 300 lbs   
    Lol! I always get pissed when people who are 10-20 lbs overweight complain. I think it is really rude, especially in front of obese/morbidly obese people.
    If you are 10-20 lbs overweight STFU and gain 100-200 more pounds and then complain to me

    auntiemel got a reaction from BeagleLover in Dealing with food addiction POST SURGERY   
    I wish I could snack sometimes lol, my sleeve is pretty sensitive and if I overeat, or even attempt one more bite I will throw up...well dry heave for 10-20 minutes.
    I know at some point I will have to add Snacks in and eat 5 mini meals, but it seems so daunting to me right now. I'm a month post op on Monday, and still don't have much of an appetite, and when I do eat, I can eat a few bites and be done.

    No regrets! My doc actually found and repaired a hiatal hernia during surgery, now I have no heartburn whatsoever, even when I've forgotten to take my PPI. Before surgery, I would spend half the time waking up with reflux. Now I'm happy!

    auntiemel got a reaction from #9grammy in Lap band vs gastric sleeve   
    my personal reasons why I chose the sleeve:
    1. I am a volume eater! I may not be shoving Oreos and junk food down my throat, but I overeat, even the good stuff like fruits.
    2. I am already anemic, have low Vitamin d and B12 levels, so I did not want to have issues with malabsorption.
    3. The thought of having most of my stomach removed doesn't bother me, hut I get the eebie jeebies from the thought of having my intestines movers around.
    4. I don't really eat a ton of sweets so the major possibility of dumping syndrome being a deterrent wasn't needed.
    5. I also love to bake during the holidays! Like Graham Elliot, he chose the sleeve so he can still taste test what is being made. Like I said in #4, I don't eat a lot of sweets, but being more prone to dumping syndrome wouldn't be good for testing recipes.
    6. My mom has a history of colitis and ulcers, and was hospitalized once and had to receive blood transfusions...that alone made me want to leave my intestines alone.
    7. I have had Migraines since childhood and NSAIDS help me. They can be used occasionally with sleeve (at least some docs ok it) and with bypass you can't take them at all.
    8. With bypass you have a small pouch and your anatomy is changed and if something happens and a medic or doctor needs to scope you, the can perforate your pouch if they aren't advised you have had bypass.
