For those watching the super bowl or having a party, what dishes are you making? I’m thinking about some smoked chicken wings on the big green egg but curious what others might be making. Post op things are limited but temptations are every where at a party!

We host every year, even when I was a week post op! 😃 each year has gotten a little better though. This years menu contains: chili, pulled pork sandwiches, baked chicken wings, stuffed bell pepper “nachos”, deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, chips and homemade salsa & guacamole, my non traditional 7layer dip with chicken and cucumber Slices & hummus.

Very easy and healthy.

Bake your own tortilla chips and serve them with homemade or store bought pico de Gallo. You do have to use a little oil with the chips, but not much.

Stop making excuses to eat junk

I don’t see people here making excuses to eat junk-I see people making good plans to stay with healthy stuff during a real life situation. Good job to those planning ahead to stay on track! We’ll have a veggie tray, deli meat tray, and cheese tray that I’m planning to pick from at our party. Maybe a couple pieces of fruit too. And I’m stocking up on Vitamin Water zero as well, but will fit in a glass of wine by running on the treadmill in the morning before the party.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce
  • 8 oz (250g) g block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup white Cheddar cheese freshly shredded
  • 1/4 cup American cheddar freshly shredded
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (optional to serve)
  • 2 teaspoons green onions, sliced ( or chives)
  • Celery sticks carrot sticks, tortilla chips, crusty bread pieces, potato chips, for serving

INSTRUCTIONSimage.gif.fa769afae69a4a2c447be6edaa384b77.gifimage.gif.65301dbe15f2b2d93463271bc690ad19.gifimage.gif.6c86c4c598b15d7330a66b60a26ec295.gif

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Arrange oven rack to the middle of your oven.
  • In an 8-inch cast-iron skillet (or an ovenproof pan), melt the butter over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant (30 seconds). Add the chicken and hot sauce and simmer until sauce has thickened and reduced by half (about 2 minutes).
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in cream cheese; mix until combined. Take off heat, stir through sour cream and top with both cheddar cheese(s) over the top.
  • Bake until bubbling around the edges and the cheese has melted (about 10 minutes). Broil (or grill) for a further minute to brown on top.
  • Immediately garnish with blue cheese and green onions. Serve with vegetable sticks, chips, crusty bread pieces for dipping.

NOTES

  • If you don't have a cast-iron skillet or oven-proof pan: prepare all ingredients as per recipe instructions above in a regular pan on the stove. Then transfer buffalo dip to a 1-quart (1-litre) baking dish.
  • You can use rotisserie chicken.
  • Don't like blue cheese? Feel free to omit it.
  • Halve the hot sauce amount for a milder dip.
  • Add more hot sauce for spicier dip.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
