  1. I have an answer....and mine works. I have asthma and the primary side effect of my emergency inhaler is leg cramps. Drinking water does help, but I still get them. I also have bum knees and they seem to cause cramps too. The thing I have found that works like a charm is pickle juice. Take a spoonful or two of pickle juice and within five minutes the cramps are gone! I was told apple cider vinegar works too, but I haven't tried it.
  2. Hi Marty, Thanks and nice to meet you too!!
  3. Dara, Thanks. I will definitely let you all know when we know. I haven't even told my mom yet!
  4. Dara, Awwwwww, darn. Okay, 7 years ago I split with the hubby, an abusive sort I am glad to be away from. I put my resume online and got a job offer here. GULP. Big move for this Tennessee gal who had no family here and only one friend, an ex-sailor I had been pen pals with for a few years. Well, I leaped feet first and moved out here (drove actually....that is a story in and of itself) and finally met my pen pal. Love at first sight? No, but it wasn't hate either. We were just really great friends. He helped me a lot and I helped him too. He was my buddy through the surgery and h
  5. Dara!! Congrats on the goal gal!! You look great! The wedding? Mine! No date set yet.
  6. Yes, yes, it is me, back again. Don't faint Bridget! Before surgery I drank 1-2 diet Mountain Dews per day (down from only the Lord knows how many). The rest of the time I drank water. After surgery I did pretty good, no desire for the cokes.....till I was about 9 months out. That is when I went home for a short visit. I took a bottle of water for the airplane, but it only lasted as far as the stopover in Denver....and I still had to get to Nashville. Ended up getting a diet coke, only because I still can't drink plain water and they had no Propel. Handled it well, but then, I let th
  7. Thanks Nancy! It felt so good too, I didn't think it would feel that great, but it did!
  8. Good grief, I am supposed to know if I am coming or going?? Why didn't anyone tell me this before???? Rats!!!
  9. Lisa, Oh, hon, that made my YEAR!!! I loved making him squirm! Dara, Yep, doing great, sorry to have gotten lost like that! I have missed all of you!
  10. Kim, So sorry I missed your birthday. Hope it was the best ever!!
  11. Hi Snubby, If you weren't feeling apprehensive we would worry about you. We all went through it. Just think how much better you will feel 3 months down the road. I was so ready to cancel my surgery about 5 times before I went in, but I didn't do it. Mine was 1 year, 2 weeks and 150 pounds ago. Do I regret it? NO WAY!
  12. Umm, a little birdie (named Bridget) said that ya'll were freaking out over where I was. I am soooooooo sorry to have dropped off the face of the earth like that! I been a tad bit busy. The company I work for sold back the end of June, so I have new bosses. With the job I have the brunt of the work of closing out the old company and starting up the new company fell to me. Joy, Joy. So, for July and August I don't think that there were very many weeks (if any) that I worked less than 60 hours. Eeks! The last two months I have been busy trying to get all the web work I do on the side
  13. DFoster, The commercials were the worst. But I will tell you what worked for me. It was a two-step solution, but it continues to work. First as I was getting ready to take a shower I looked at myself in the full-length mirror and said "if food has gotten me to be this way, then it is NOT MY FRIEND". Second, when a commercial would come on for food on the tv, I would ask myself, "Does it EVER taste as good as the commercials make it look??" The answer was always a resounding "NO". Within a week the commercials did nothing to me. Like I said, this worked for me. It may work for you, i
  14. Okay, that could cause it, but I am not diabetic. Blood sugar levels, hmm, mine are usually on the low side. Something to keep in mind though!
  15. Pam, Yep, I is really stubborn when I wanna be. Thanks for the prayers!
