  1. I like diet lemon Snapple tea!
  2. I couldn't eat canned refried beans because it was so salty. So, I cooked dried pinto beans and added no sugar salsa and pureed it and then added fat free grated cheese. Yum! I also drink sugar free Carnation Instant breakfast and add instant milk for added protein. That has always tasted good to me.
  3. Hope you do well!!
  4. YUM....all those recipes sound so good! Thanks!
  5. I had surgery 2 weeks ago. I have been on anti-depressants for years. For some reason I wasn't given my anti-depressants in the hospital. I have had horrible anxiety! I am getting a little better everyday. Is this normal??

  14. I was here last year waiting for my A1C test (I'm diabetic) to come down to 7 or below. Well, that hasn't happened. The surgeon I was going to use will not do surgery until that number comes down. I decided to call the Medical University of south Carolina. The surgeon said he would absolutley do the surgery!! I am sooo excited! I have completed all the paperwork and all the medical tests. Now i am waiting for the insurance approval. As soon as I get thet then I will be given a surgery date.
