Making the second meal in our new air fryer. It's going to be homemade low carb chicken fingers, veggie tots and some green Beans.

I'm still not able to have any meat yet, I think it starts in the next stage for me, things like tuna. But the other day I made the best veggie dish. Maybe I was so deprived of home cooking that it felt like the best veggie dish I ever tasted, but it was good :)

3 med zucchini's - sliced med thin
2 med tomatoes - wedges about 8-12 per tomato
olive oil cooking spray

Place zucchini in pan and lightly spray with olive oil. Then add Tomato wedges, add salt and pepper to taste (I like it heavy on the pepper). Cover and simmer until desired tenderness.

Enjoying cooking more sous vide this weekend.

Made egg bites yesterday morning for Breakfast. Made halibut and mahi mahi for dinner tonight with plenty left over for the next few days. Having some tri-color quinoa (not sous vide) on the side.

Did salmon last weekend. The fish turns out so soft and moist in the sous vide.

LVB - what attracted you to Sous Vide? Is it better for us? Does meat taste good that way??? I like the roasty taste it gets in the oven.....

For meat, I like the fact that if you cook a piece of fish or steak at a certain temperature, that it's cooked evenly throughout to that temperature. For chicken and steak, you need to seer it after it cooks because it looks a little pale, but the fish is great right out of the sous vide. The fish is very moist and flakey.

I love the egg bites in the sous vide. If you have ever had the Starbucks egg bites, you can make them yourself and decide exactly what you want in them. You can make them up on the weekend and eat them for the week. Or, this past weekend I tried cooking them, freezing them, and then vacuum packing them for the freezer so they will be ready for the weeks when you don't have time to cook them.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
