  1. anyone eat/use pork rinds or low carb taco shells?
  2. I use something similar from wal mart also, but I will still miss a dose. usually 1 time a week. if I miss a dose I usually try to make it up. if I miss a dose at night I will take it the next morning, then take that morning dose at noon.
  3. daily routine, I split my vitamins up 1/2 in the morning, 3 hours later I take iron, then at night I take the other 1/2 of my vitamins. the question for those of you who do this when you miss or forget a dose do you take the missed dose when you find it or take the 1s you should be taking? do you try to make it up? I haven't heard of a short term time limit such as you have to get them in 24 hours. I will try to get them in the next day.
  4. mine was high before surgery( glimpremide, metformin & Lantus) so far it has just went to normal with no drugs. before surgery, the surgeon told me that I might want to keep Glucose tablets on hand, I have not needed them so far at over 1 year out.
  5. I had localized callouses(?) 1 on each ball of my feet. I had fitted inserts & still had problems before surgery. after gastric bypass I still wear the inserts part of the time (30 to 50%) & they are just about gone at 1 year out. if I am on my feet a lot the inserts still feel good.
  6. Thanks
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. thanks
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. try warm chicken or beef broth
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
