  1. Just some Observations/Experiences

    I never really thought of it like that...meat replacing protein shakes. I just love meat!! hahaha I still drink the shakes and just bought my first jug of protein powder to make my own.
  2. Just some Observations/Experiences

    I am feeling fine. I haven't had any bad days so I consider myself lucky. I had to walk down 6 flights of stairs a few days ago due to elevators being out and BOY are my leg muscles sore!!! ;o) Looking forward to getting in the gym and getting strong again.
  3. I am almost at my 6 weeks since surgery. I've had three episodes of near upchucking due to one too many bites. ;o) I find that I get full very fast when I eat meat. Then, I ran out of the Prilosec the Doc prescribed and thought phooey, I don't need it since I experienced no issues with heartburn. And then I a refill was picked up and I'm back on it. I've also resumed regular coffee (or people may die..hahaha) ;o) I'm so used to making a lot of food and my freezer is filling up fast. I am not going back to diet sodas, although I miss my diet Dew. Drinking a lot of Crystal Light type of stuff, unsweet tea and diet tea. 51 lbs down so far...oh, I almost forgot. I tried a salad, which I was craving since I had, the effects!! Think I'm good to not having salad again for a while. hahaha Any pointers, tips or advice will be well received!! Gary
