  1. Cauliflower is back on the menu!

    Soon after surgery there's many smells and food I couldn't stand any longer. Cauliflower (and all cruciferous veggies) pepper bell, some protein powder or vitamins...the list was long.
    For the last three months I've been able to drink a protein powder I used before surgery and it felt great!
    But I did try cauliflower several times and was never successful.
    The thing is, here in Taipei there's many veggies I like I can't find, and in Asian cuisine they use lots of cabbage and ...
  2. Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year fellow sleevers!
    In three weeks it will be my post-op for the big "one year" anniversary.
    Looking back at the past 11 months I can't believe that I lost so much weight in such a "short time".
    The beginning and few weeks/months post-op it was not always easy but today life is much easier compare to one year ago.
    Just last week I was visiting Osaka, and we walked an average of 5 miles per day and I was ok! At some point we walked 7 miles ...
  3. Shoe size

    Hello friends!!

    Today it's time to talk about a serious topic:shoes!!

    When being big for so long, most of the time I didn't see the point of buying more "giant tent style" clothing...and instead I would enjoy to get nice shoes, at least I thought that if I was going to lose that extra weight one day, at least I would still be able to wear my fav shoes....WRONG!!

    So far, ten months out, +90 pounds down since my first consult (110 from my highest ...
  4. Body dysmorphia....it's getting better!

    I'm 9 months out, lost around 90 pounds since my first consult...for the last few months I couldn't figure out what was my size or if I would be able to fit in between those two tables at the restaurant. Losing so much and so quickly kind of made me lose my internal compass.

    I spent most of October in Indonesia (Bali). They have the best spas and I did a lot of massages...(it's really cheap). Mostly lymphatic drainage. The result has been amazing! It's the best way to reconnect mind ...
  5. Abdominoplasty: 2nd appointment/2nd surgeon

    Today I met a second surgeon, in a private hospital were we go for consults in English (I had my sleeve in a public hospital where everything is mainly in Chinese). They had a window for a consult today, it was earlier than I thought but great to have a second opinion quickly.
    The consult was quiet long, one hour. Long story short, because in Asia there's not many obese, the surgeon usually do abdominoplasties without lipo (???). And it's rare for him to repair the muscles. He actually ...
