    Hello :-) thank you so much for the cauliflower crust recipe that is great i will try it. My husband had a gastric band in 2007 before i knew him and he, and now i, don't eat bread. So that is a brilliant idea .... so glad you wrote. If you have any more good ideas do share.
    I took the idea of cauliflower mashed for top of a shepherds pie today but i did add a little potato because it stuck together better.
    keep in touch love Hev
  3. I totally understand, good luck with everything. I'm in my last month of pre op so it's coming along fast.

    Amy, Without giving me exact details (cause I don't want to come off as creepy) but what area of upstate do your live in? I used to live in Cortland, just south of Syracuse for 4 years right after college. Loved it there. Still a "Cuse fan! Still get up to the finger lakes when I can for the wineries. Favorite one is Bully Hill. Not for the great wines but for the great atmosphere. Hope to hear back from you. Either way best of success in your sleeve adventure!! Bruiser (Joe)

    Hopefuljourney,
    Good luck on your journey and you will know when you are full, it only takes about 3 or 4 bites. You will just chew your food up so good it takes a little longer. Before surgery I just got where I'd sit at the kitchen table for all meals without tv, cell phone or tablet.. So that I could focus on my food and it really helped me slow down and think about what I was doing.

An alternative to eating nuts.

by Hopefuljourney on 02-18-2014 at 07:10 PM
Have any of you tried these? They are my new favorite snack. I mix them with my oven roasted almonds so that I am not consuming as much fat and calories but I am still getting the protein. The chickpeas taste great and I like the spice flavor and crunch.

Stomach bug and sleeve

by Hopefuljourney on 02-06-2014 at 03:03 PM
I was slammed with a stomach bug last night. For 5 hours anything that went in came right back up. I was getting really nervous because I could not keep any water down. My husband called our surgeon and within 2 minutes he called back. He suggested ice chips and to monitor if it lasted more than 24 hours. I am so thankful for my surgeon. What a wonderful, caring person. The ice chips were a godsend. I was able to chew on those and keep them down. I have no interest in eating today but the water

Adding to my repetiore

by Hopefuljourney on 01-05-2014 at 05:43 PM
I went snowshoeing today! I had never tried it before but I tromped through the woods, walking up and down hills. I loved it. I was out in the fresh air. I was working out and didn't feel like it. My fitbit had me taking 6000+ steps and climbing 12 flights of stairs. Before the winter I was outside everyday walking and hiking. Since the snow fell and the below freezing temps I have been at the gym, walking on the hamster wheel. Ugh, I hate it. I am so excited about the rest of the winter. I am recruiting

Had my first negative comment.

by Hopefuljourney on 12-01-2013 at 09:08 PM
I have been very open about my surgery. If someone asks how I lost weight I tell them. Even people who come up to me in the grocery store because they hear me talking to my husband or a friend. I tell them, "I had gastric sleeve in July" I do not post on FB about my weight loss, however, so there are many people that don't know I had surgery.

I recently joined a weight loss group on FB that has many of my singing friends. We post daily to support each other and share thoughts

Boy was I nervous!

by Hopefuljourney on 09-20-2013 at 07:23 AM
My husband got his sleeve yesterday and although I had no nerves for my own surgery two months ago, sitting on the other side of the gurney was a real nail biter. Just watching him being wheeled away just made my heart skip a beat. Seeing him in recovery made me breathe easier but only for a few moments since I had to leave him in recovery for several more hours because the hospital inexplicably had no room for him. Our surgeon assured me at 10pm last night that he would be well cared for staying
