Week 3 /4 I think. I liked cooking them with eggs. Had them raw by weeks 5/6. If they are allowed on your food plan just try them and see.

I had a horrible event take place after eating one marinated (in homemade Italian Dressing). It was super soft, I chewed really, really well and yet it somehow became lodged. I was miserable until I violently threw up. I am three days away from being two months post-op, have had very little issue(s) with what I have been eating, trying, cooking and yet that Tomato about killed me.

When you reach the point of being able to eat normal food. I love cherry and grape tomatoes! Even slices of normal-sized tomatoes are good too.

I'll try tomatoes in the future. I'll probably try canned tomatoes as they have been peeled and see how those work.

Starting at the puree phase (2nd phase, post-op). I made a homemade Gazpacho Soup where I pureed all of the ingredients in a blender.

I waited about two months. So far I've been lucky though and haven't had issues with anything.

I think at three months when I was cleared for all foods. The acid bothered me at first, though - but not anymore.

I can fill my sleeve to the brim with cherry or grape tomatoes, I love them THAT much. I have to stay away from them, because when they are in my house I will eat them, and have no room for Protein.< /p>

I am trying some now for the first time on veggie chicken salad. I am really taking my time and so far so good.

one of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes is to cut some small tomatoes in half and hollow them out and then fill them with tuna or chicken salad

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
