Alright guys I am starting to get very bored of eating the same things all the time. I am really good at sitting down for my three meals but have been told I need to be eating more and making an effort to get those couple Snacks in for the added nutrients. What are some go to snacks and foods in general you guys like?

I wish I liked Jello. Texture makes me gag. Always has. eggs make me sick since surgery. So strange no matter how they are prepared. I can do egg beaters though. cheese is one of my main things I eat. I probably eat to much to be honest. I know I need to start eating more of a variety. I just get so anxious about choosing something that’ll make me sick but I know I need to venture out.

How about almonds, pistachios, nut mixes? Apples & Peanut Butter, Deli meat rolled with cheese, yogurt. There are also prepackaged Protein packs for on the go.

Thanks! Yes those are some good ones. I love Peanut Butter. I get an almond one that’s really good.

Somebody else said they mixed cottage cheese and a small spoonful of sugar free strawberry jelly or jam, made them think of strawberry cheesecake, come to think of it I have some sugar free blackberry from Smuckers, bet that might also be good. They may even make a blueberry and a red raspberry, I'm pretty sure of the red raspberry. Walmart even has house brand sf jelly, maybe I've given myself a good idea. Anybody hear the ding when the light lit in my head?

Almonds, cheese, homemade cheese crisps or parm crisps (easy recipe, just google it). You can do a homemade guacamole dip, homemade yogurt/spinach dip or homemade hummus to dip the cheese crisps in...yum! Also, keep cut up fresh veggies on hand such as baby carrots, snap peas, red peppers, cucumbers...great by themselves or in dips. Nice, fresh, crunchy Snacks that are good for you if you are already caught up on your Protein for the day. The cheese crisps, of course, have some protein. Also, greek, lower carb-low sugar yogurt. Plain yogurt with stevia, throw in some almonds or a few blueberries..delicious! I second the deviled eggs.

Some good suggestions from others here.

      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.
