  1. Thanks
  2. how do you cook your fish & what kind? I have an air fryer on the way, I thought it would be better & can make smaller batches easier
  3. if I knew I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself & saved more money, but it was fun at the time!
  4. usually do chocolate & do the banana cream & caramel for a change. don't like the vanilla & strawberry, usually love strawberry & vanilla but not in the premier shakes.
  5. I am seeing a primary care doctor, usually every 3 to 4 months. he is the doctor that orders my blood work. can you tell me what blood work he should be ordering? I am not seeing the surgeon that did my bypass due to insurance reasons. is there anything special he should order? other test? Thanks
  6. I have ordered them from wal mart. I order choc, banana cream & caramel, they will have them at your front door in less than a week.
  7. try warm chicken or beef broth
  8. point, you can get crispy foods without frying in oil. high carb, depends on what you start with. spraying with oil, was told to use olive oil which is good for you. you can cook things like vegie tots & cauliflower tots & get them crispy is what I have been told & read. you still have to watch what you cook & eat from them. I don't eat breaded chicken or fish.
  9. I used a timer also just after surgery, it helped a lot. you can drink broth, I never really liked till after. I drank my water(flavored) at room temperature or warm, my pouch didn't like cold to start with.
  10. do any of you cook with 1? what kind? do you like it?
  11. my insurance will not pay for anything labeled bariatric not even the yearly visits. will not pay for blood work if it has weight loss or bariatric in the coding. see if they can code it another way.
  12. I am 14 months out also (12-28-15) and I am starting with a therapist tomorrow. I think my hunger & eating problems are somewhat like yours. I understand the urge to eat all the time, if you find a fix let me know. the only help I have found so far is to stay busy outside the house. I have no problem getting in plenty of fluids. I usually only drink coffee & flavored water. I use the sugar free flavorings for water, mix it 1/2 gallon at a time & put in bottles or the stainless cups.
  13. 1.5 Years ago my stomach would sometimes rub the steering wheel in my truck. yesterday I had to take 2 dogs to the vet, coming home I noticed both on my lap standing between me & the steering wheel. 1 was a 12 pound Yorkie & other was a 11.5 Yorkie/ Miniature Schnauzer cros
  14. get your ins. carrier to send you in writing what is needed. mine told me that a 6 month supervised diet wasn't required, this changed when I had done everything else. Good luck.
  15. I cooked 2lbs in a 6qt slow cooker last Friday. gave 2 qts away & I am still eating them. brings a new meaning to eating leftovers. should have frozen some of them, still have a quart to go. I do miss having corn bread with them.
