  2. I finally ate pizza!

    Not a big deal, some of you might say.
    But the point is: I have not eaten pizza since my surgery, 1,5 years ago.
    So yesterday was a family day and we went out for lunch as well as dinner.

    For lunch we ended up in a restaurant where food choices were very limited.
    But there was pizza!
    I reminded myself, that I was NOT on a diet and ordered a slice of tuna pizza.

  3. After 1,5 year

    Last week was my 1,5 year surgiversary.
    Time flies when you are having fun!

    My sleeve does his job and so do I.

  4. My first slider foods

    I finally did it!
    My first real slider foods!
    I had eaten a cup of popcorn before, but this time I went way further.

    We are currently in Germany, where they have these delicious baguette-like little bread rolls.
    Made of pure white flour, absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever.
    Those breads.
    I used to love, love, love them.
    Yesterday I ate one of those and I really wondered why I ever liked them...
    No taste, no texture, just ...
  5. The sleeve and the hammer.

    As some of you may know, I am constantly doing research and browsing through the internet, to learn as much as I want to about the sleeve and other wls procedures.
    Yesterday I came across a youtube video from Dori'sJourney and she had a great analogy, I thought I'd share.

    Our sleeve is a tool, just like a hammer.
    You want to use that hammer to hang up a picture on the wall.
    So you find yourself a nail and start hammering.
    After you hit the nail two or ...
