dinner last night was a tuna melt on zero carb bread inspired by all the beautiful sandwiches @GreenTealael makes. My bf ate the other half for me.

My very typical Breakfast. Protein varies slightly from time to time (ham, chicken, salmon).

Made Mexican't Pizzas for dinner last night. I can't call them Mexican Pizzas since one of them pretty much fell into a sloppy mess when I tried moving it to the plate (structural integrity of the bottom tortilla was nearly nonexistent) and because apparently my boyfriend loaded his dinner salad up with all of the rest of the shredded taco cheese leaving me with only Italian 3 Cheese blend to use.

That said...they were still delicious and I polished off 1.5 of the 2 I made. And I have plenty of leftover fillings so these will be back on the menu for Thursday night. I WILL be getting taco cheese (or maybe some cotija) before then.

Rougamo 
(I like to think this is the ancestor of Iowa’s Loose meat Sandwich 😂)
 

Loose meat sandwiches are so strange to me! Always reminds me of this story. My practice husband got a promotion and transfer to Iowa a few months after our first kid was born. He started working before we actually moved of course.

One night he called me trying to explain this weird hamburger he got at a drive through. He was trying to explain it to me and I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Finally he said, “It’s like you’re making spaghetti with meat sauce and you stop before you put sauce in it” For some reason that cracked me up and stuck with me 32 years later!

I lived in Iowa for 5 years and never tried one.

P.S. - I'm not really watching cals/macros (I don't log every meal, just the lower carb ones so I can feel accomplished 🤫😂)

I officially became 3 yrs post WLS this past weekend and all of the experts (my 🔥🔥🔥 PA) say to stay vigilant starting the 2nd -3rd year so I'm trying become more mindful but not obsessive

Bonus pic: me and my fav people on the planet

If you want it less sloppy here some ideas. (I’m the taco queen)

Crisp up your tortilla on a baking sheet with a rack first. Add the cheese and Beans after its crisper then melt. Have the sauce warmed up on the side and drizzle it over. Btw, check out hard taco shells in the store, most are 50 calories or less!

Breakfast this morning was a one egg omelette stuffed with spinach, reduced fat mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, onions and 1 oz of turkey kielbasa.

What's the reasoning behind this, like what makes the 2nd to 3rd year that special?

I'd have to ask again but I believe it was the slowdown/ending of the "Honeymoon" phase

In my experience, end of year 2 is when I first had some weight gain. It seems like that is when the last of the sleeve magic wore off for me.

The years after that were just like normal non-sleeve for gaining/losing weight (which I did several times). Capacity increased a lot too.

Interesting. Didn't notice anything special during that time span. After about 1 to 1.5 years I didn't notice any changes anymore for me regarding portion sizes or appetite/hunger.

If I wanted to I could easily overeat and gain right now. I’m 2+ years out. I have to be vigilant and write everything down. I no longer eat when I’m stressed (I lose my appetite) or bored and I plan most of my meals in advance. I do allow myself some junk type foods now, but in very limited quantities and frequency.
