After gastric sleeve surgery, what was your best appliance to prepare foods? My sister has already purchased the baby food pure’ machine with the bags for me. Is there anything else You would recommend I should prepare to purchase?

I like my crock pot slow cooker. I use it for my Soups and chili.

One vote for my Nutriblend also, just don't let my Crock pot hear, it has seniority after all!❤

My blender for my Protein Shakes and to puree things like Soups (in the early days), and my kitchen scale are things that I use daily. Slow cooker gets used often for soups, stews, and cooking meats to a tender consistency (think pulled pork, chicken, etc). Before my surgery, I read many people talk about stocking up on their 4oz food storage containers, but I didn't get it until after. I use them daily to portion out my prepped food. I have a dozen of them and they're always being used.

And I'm planning on saving up for an air fryer. I can see that being super useful in the future.

I have an AirFryer and it's truly a game changer! Makes Brussels sprouts the crispiest (if that's a word!) I've ever tasted! Yum. When I think of all those years deep frying, I shudder!

Not an appliance, but I got a great small (5") cooking pan - steep sides, well made, non-stick. Given the amounts I can eat, it is SO much easier to cook in - especially if I'm doing an egg or any kind of sauce. I kept looking for one where I live, but ultimately found it when I visited a friend in Europe.

Awesome responses! thank you everyone. I have all of the above. I was thinking of getting a mini Bullet but not sure if it will be useful. I love my air fryer and crock pot and use them frequently. I have the little cups that came in my box of containers that I buy for my kids to take their lunch for work. I just got a new pan set that has the pan that you discussed. So I think I’m good there. 😊

That’s my next purchase.. there is so much you can do with it. My crock pot is getting old so that’s what I’m replacing it with.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
