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 broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
