Instructions? Sounds like something I'd love try :)

We do it 2 ways...

My favourite way is:

1. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray.

2. Cut the tops off your whole garlics so that the cut shows a clear cross-cut of each clove. It will look like a bundle of tubes (sorta)

3. Pull off the really loose outer flaky layers.

4. Place one head per cup in the pan.

5. Lightly spray each head w/non-stick spray & sprinkle with seasonings (salt, pepper, Rosemary, etc)

6. Bake at 275-300 for abt 15 min. They are done when you see some of the cloves pop out of their spots. Not all will.

The other way is:

1. Peel & separate all the heads/cloves.

2. Spray a baking sheet w/non-stick spray.

3. Spread the naked cloves on the sheet.

4. Lightly spray with non-stick spray & season.

5. Bake at 275-300 for abt 15 min. The cloves will brown a little.

You might want to keep an eye on them the 1st time you make them. The cloves will be really squishy when they're done. :}

I'm three weeks out tomorrow I'm only allowed soft eggs, any style. But no meat. String cheese, Jello, broth etc.. And my doc said absolutely no Protein Shakes or bars. I don't get it. I have talked with other people and they started shakes the next day after surgery. Hum.. I wonder why the difference

I remember the first time I roasted garlic, my son came in the house and said

"mom why are you burning tires"

When I started on soft food, I could only eat about 3 bites, and I had to wait awhile in between them.

The ricotta bake is a good recipe for the soft stage.

take ricotta cheese and mix in an egg and mozzarella cheese and Parmesan if you like that. cover it with spaghetti sauce and bake it. yummy!

...when I told the nutritionist that the dr told me at week 2 that I could have yogurt and sf Jello she was like ok if the dr told you then ok. I don't understand why every dr has different guidelines. So I am thinking is it ok to advance sooner than what dr says. I see MANY others seem to have a more lenient plane to follow than me. Would it really be bad to have an egg or cottage cheese before my dr says its ok? I think my dr is a bit more stricter than others even though he let me have the yogurt at two weeks.

Jayne . My Dr told me at two weeks i can start eggs, any style..cottage cheese.. String cheese.. Broths..jellos.. He said for me not to have any Protein Shakes or bars. He said right now he is not concerned for me to start Vitamins either, until he sees me at the one month mark. I don't understand either why do different Drs have different rules. My Co worker has the sleeve and she was started on Protein shakes the day after surgery. She takes muscle milk. I was told muscle milk is bad as the Iron levels can be to toxic to us.

People are always anxious to start eggs. A lot of people have said that eggs don't really agree with them early out. Eggs don't seem to be all that sleeve friendly.

The best thing to do is try a bite and see how it sits. You have to go really slow and chew it up until it's liquid in your mouth. Then wait, and see how you feel.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
