One Year And My Top Ten Things I Know About Being Sleeved



Recommended Posts

I posted the TOP TEN things that were the biggest parts of my journey on today's blog; plus two passport photos taken a year apart...even if you don't read the blog, these photos say it all! I wanted to thank Alex and all the people on the VST forum who have followed my year long journey on www.queenofcrop.com; you have been an inspiration to me every step of the way!

Mahalo, thank you, Dankuwel, etc....

Hi

I followed your blog and loved it.Was a bit envious of your travels too as we love travelling just dont have enough time to get away to often.

Also,I seem to lose most weight when eating out very often.For some reason I just cannot eat more than a bite or two in a restaurant so holidays are my favorite time now.

Enjoy settling in! You look so great!

Thanks everyone for the good wishes! And for those pre-surgery....good for you for coming on to this and learning as much as you can! Jillb...today is YOUR surgery!!!! So excited for you; just remember the next few weeks is going to be a very weird time...but it gets better and better every day! Let us know how you are doing.....

We're just getting settled into cold, windy, rainy Amsterdam....(people think we were crazy to come here from Hawaii!! and maybe they were right!). But I hit 139 lbs today; haven't seen the 130's since high school! So I have nothing to complain about!

I hadn't seen your blog before, thank you so much for sharing! I particularly agree with #7, that's my experience exactly. I never worry about any of that grams of Protein stuff either.

I wish I was better about #8. Ha! :)

Enjoy that happier and healthier life!

Wow to Soup-a-woman!!!! Thank you for reading my blog, but mostly thank you for YOUR Soup blog!!!! I love soup!!! And here I am in Amsterdam (via Hawaii) where it's cold and now I can have Soup all winter.....I can't wait to try out your recipes, starting with Buffalo chicken Chowder....just hope I can find some of the ingredients here...

Great site.....I will go back often. YUM!!! And congratulations on reaching your goal weight yesterday; 158 lbs, that is just incredible.

You might have a hard time (if not impossible time) finding Frank's Hot Sauce in Amsterdam. If you use another hot sauce be careful of the amount. Frank's is hot, but is also very vinegary and you can use more than you can with other hot sauces. If you have anyone who ships you food from the US, ask them to throw in a bottle of Frank's next time. :)

Enjoy souping... my daughter was just asking for this chowder the other day, and I haven't made it because I've been doing new Soups for the blog. Hard line to balance!

Finding ANY hot sauce here will be a miracle! I'll put it on my wish list and hope I will find something that might work as an alternative until I get some sent over!

I can get Tabasco (all different sorts) in CH, Germany and France. And I can get Frank's (my fave!) from the American Market here, and I believe they have a similar market in Netherlands -- it's at least worth a google before you pay the hideous shipping/VAT/customs on it. :-)
