  1. I'm glad you had such a good time @BurgundyBoy and yes you're lucky. It's nice to communicate with people who can understand my struggles. I'll be OK as long as my family is fine. And I'm doing my best to offer them the support that they need. I wish you and yours the best...
  2. Thank you @BurgundyBoy I really appreciate the support. That's why I came back to TT. I hope you had a nice vacation
  3. Beautiful Comparison pictures Trish The difference is remarkable, and you look so happy!!!!
  4. Thank you @Dunndeal I will give your system a try. It just might jumpstart my weight loss. As you know, I'm an ovo lacto vegetarian. Meat, chicken and fish are not an option for me. I'm allergic to soy. I read of vegan members who had great results after WLS. Thank you for your encouragement. It definitely gives me hope
  5. Thank you for posting this link @Dunndeal It moved me deeply
  6. @Aussie H hi!! Just checking in on you. I hope your recovery is well underway. How are you feeling?
  7. Hmmmm... Poor saggy sad boobs? I think that describes 90 percent of females after WLS. Unfortunately...
  8. Thanks for the update @Trish13 I'm so glad you're on the mend!! It's wonderful to see the weight go down and to wear smaller sizes. I'm sure, once you've off the TPN you'll see even more weight loss. The closer you get to meet your protein requirements, the better off you'll be. And the more results you'll get. I learned it the hard way. Oh and the less hairloss you'll experience. Soon,the difficult beginning will only be a bad memory and you'll be happy with better health and improved body image
  9. @Trish1967 Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words!!! That picture speaks a thousand words. It is to die for!!!!! Soooo soooo sweet I'm officially in love. I'm happy you have him in your life. He's your love bundle. Xoxo
  10. Hi @NerdyLady Ayran is basically watered down and salted yogurt. My family drinks it a lot in summer. It comes in full fat or fat free versions. Laban is yogurt as everyone knows it. There are fat free, low fat and full fat versions. Labneh is drained yogurt. Traditionally, housewives will let the yogurt drain in a bag that they sew. Today it's much easier to buy it in the supermarket. Jen is right though it is lightly salted so that it doesn't turn sour. It has a thicker consistency than Greek yogurt and it is usually eaten with olive oil, olives and....bread or crackers. We a
  11. @Trish1967 You look radiant. Your weight loss is really showing. Your eyes look bigger. Hurray for shorter hair!!!
  12. Hi again @Trish1967.. Your post is a testimony to your level of empathy. Yes it truly is harrowing to watch loved ones suffer. Especially when you are so helpless. But to be the one going through the ordeal and worrying about other's feelings?! Bravo my friend you just got the highest scores on the EQ test. I'm happy you have a caring and loving husband to accompany you on your journey in life. It is a blessing. I'm sorry you both have to face adversity. My heartfelt wishes for total remission and a carefree future As for grandchildren, I'll have to wait. All my kids are stil
  13. I'm glad you're familiar with both dairies. I personally love labneh and I usually have it for breakfast. Or I'll have yogurt with cucumbers. I'm also glad your hung yogurt turned out to be OK. For a wetter consistency remove it earlier from the cloth. It should be just fine. I really love interior design. Maybe I should consider hiring your designer??
  14. Thx for the update Jen I'm glad you're finally settled in and tested the waters around you. Really, pink walls? I love pink but not on my walls.... A big apartment is more housework, but I'm sure it'll be easy to have a cleaning lady come over if you're too busy at university. My mom used to make Greek yogurt. But you don't have to. Look in the supermarket for something called labneh. It should be cheap. It's strained unflavored yogurt. There are fat free, light and full fat versions. They exist in many brands. Laban is yogurt and labneh is what I just said. Good luck find
  15. Hi @NerdyLady I traveled extensively in my life, but never to Latin America. It is one of my next destinations once I get over paying college fees for my children. Here it is unheard of to have your kids pay for their education. So the heavy burden is on the parents. And we still have a few years to go. Pfffffft...... I so long for vacations but now is not the time. Pre Colombian civilisations are soooo interesting. I'd love to visit. Your aunt is so right. When you live in a place surrounded by so many dangers you develop a detached attitude. A sort of "what will be will be" mindset
