  1. I just found this online this morning:
  2. i'm on a mission now to find moon cheese, lol! i'm a big fan of laughing cow cheese on a Newman's Own protein pretzel, carrot chips or gluten free pretzel thins.
  3. hmm, it's kind of worrisome that being two weeks post-op you're eating ice cream and potatoes sugar and starch/carbs are not good... does your surgeon's office have a nutritionist you can speak to? I was still drinking Isopure, Bariatric Advantage and eating only green yogurt/cottage cheese at two weeks out. Don't rush!
  4. Hello, all... Just bought a box of these, not a huge fan, and would prefer not to eat a whole box if I don't like them... Is anyone a fan? Will sell to you for half price ($13) plus shipping...

    I've been on 4 different lines, and Celebrity is my all-time favorite! Norwegian is very nice but Celebrity is my favorite. I'd go on either again.
  6. Thanks! It comes in black and white too, but i already wear to much black LOL thank you Thanks! It's a shame that I don't have a long mirror at home. I have to take these kinds of pics in my office bathroom and hope no one walks in and sees me LOL!
  7. Knit collared tee and miracle leggings from Eloquii... working on losing his baby bump, would like to be down 55 pounds!!!
  8. You can do this!! I am on the same journey right now, as long as your mindset is in the right place just take it one day at a time!!!
  9. Back at it again... Head is on straight, goals are in sight, I'm taking it one day at a time!!

  10. One huge issue is that my folks are living in our house. Have been since 2013. Planning to move out in January 2017. My father is a sweet-a-holic... He used to be a very bad alcoholic, but now with AA, a support system and cake, he's sober 4 years. But having that cake in my house, it just weighs on my mind... I don't eat it, but I feel like I make bad choices because I'm cooking for 5 instead of cooking for just myself, which was when I was the most successful... Thanks for all the kind words of wisdom. I will take the "one day at a time" approach and get back on my routine.
  11. Yes, I know about the 5DPT quite well, thank you, Tom!
  12. It took me a few months to get back to "normal" workout mode. I would get so lightheaded and dizzy. Make sure you have something in your stomach when you workout, keep your sugar up but not high/spiking, and drink lots of water! you'll do awesome. good luck
  13. You will do awesome! (by this time you probably already have!) Update when you can
  14. Being sick during this process is no fun. Call your surgeon's office and let them know you are sick and what do they recommend for you... If you can, I'd stick to tea, hot broth, and your protein shakes. They may give you other suggestions based on your progress in the pre-op process... Personally, I had shakes for months leading up to it to get used to it. So my liver was less fatty than if I had started liquids only 10-14 days pre-op. I don't know what your diet has been like. Basically, call your doctor and double check. They may give you approval to have some greek yogurt or cottage cheese. Good luck! And feel well soon!
