  1. Check out eBay Tammy. As of right now, there are 3 sellers showing: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Spectravite+Women's+Gummies&_sacat=0
  2. Welcome to a fellow Brit. (but I now live i the US). Thing are a little quiet on the forum but hopefully that will all change when they get on top of the covid virus.
  3. If it's any help to others, aversion to plain water early post-op isn't unusual. Other than a cup of tea with milk first thing, plain water (usually with a slice or two of lemon) or sugar free Crystal Light is all I drink now.
  4. Congratulations on maintaining your weightloss Velma - truly, you are looking amazing. Just goes to show: mature women can look hot in jeans p.s. Love your furbaby too ...
  5. Welcome to Thinner Times Mandie! Tell us a little bit about yourself. Have you had bariatric surgery or are you looking into having it?
  6. Welcome to Thinner Times Sandra! I was pretty sore for a few days after my gastric bypass but I also had hernias repaired at the same time and came home with drains. Best advice I can give is that when you get home from hospital, you take little walks around the house/yard at regular intervals and keep up with your fluids.
  7. A warm welcome to Thinner Times Rashell and congratulations on dropping 51lb - that's excellent! Yep! It's pretty common to see a fluctuation in your weight during your period cycle. Just keep doing what you're doing.
  8. Susan, Check with the hospital where you had your surgery or call your local primary care's office. They should be able to give you the information you want.
  9. I haven't had any issues like that - it sounds scary. I'd recommend you have it checked out with your primary care provider sooner rather than later.
  10. Welcome to the losers bench hairteaser! The pain will ease but it often helps to do some gentle, slow, hip rocking movements.

    Welcome to Thinner Times Grace. What you're feeling is not unusual but WLS will work provided you stick with the programme.
  12. If you knuckle down now and stick to your liquid diet to the letter for the last 5 days, you should be OK.
  13. I didn't have a gastric sleeve but the best advice I can offer is to try warm drinks - whether it's in your mind or not, something like fat free (or low fat) broth should help. Early out, I found that more satisfying. Walmart stocks College Inn Fat Free & Lower Sodium Chicken Stock - that's the best tasting I could find and at just 5 calories per cup, it's not going to derail your weight loss.
  14. Hi there, not very computer literate but would love to discuss this new lifestyle I'm on with others that are going through it. Is this like texting?

      I guess it is like texting but I'm not totally positive - we already have a messaging feature (top right of this page) so I'm scratching my head a little as to what this feature is all about.  

      The whole forum was revamped not long ago and like you, I'm not terribly computer literate either.

      It's terribly quiet here but we can thank the corona virus for that - hopefully things will start to pick up again.
