6 weeks out- 1st fresh tomato caveat

Today's lunch: 4 small slices fresh mozzarella, chopped fresh basil, one peeled farmer's market tomato.

I was able to finish half of this, and the tomato, though delicious, isn't sitting well. Now I know why people wait 3 months before trying salad. Next time I do this, it'll be with canned tomato.

  1. Hi. I see you haven't posted in a while. I hope you are doing well. I have one more week to go on soft solids and your posts are a lifesaver! Thanks so much for posting. Take care!

  2. Hi there,
    I know you posted this a while back... but I used to have mozerella and tomato as a snack a lot, prior to surgery, but also tried it at a couple months out - and it was super uncomfortable. (I have the vertical sleeve gastrectomy) The key for me now, (I am 8 months post-op) is to cut the pieces very small (of both the tomato and moz) and CHEW CHEW CHEW!!! I have had it now in between, and as long as the pieces are small enough, and I chew really well - I'm good! Sometimes I screw up, and still take too big of a bite, or don't chew it enough - but it was a yummy enough thing to try again at further out - so maybe it will work this way for you too. :-)

  3. Hi Donna, I just found your blog through another one I Follow, and I am now Following you too!!

    I had Lap Band Surgery on 11/19/09 and I have lost 59 lbs. I wish that the Sleeve had been available to me when I had my Surgery, as I would have chose it instead....

  4. Gastric Sleeve Mexico:
    Going through a gastric sleeve mexico surgery poses some risks that must be considered first. Much like any other major surgery, there are risks that come along with it. Some of the potential gastric sleeve risks and complications include cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
