    The Premier Protein shakes I bought at Meijer were sold in 4 packs, not bulk. It's worth a shot if you have a Meijer near you Walmart does not sell them. Samples are not too expensive and worth it to find what you like

    You can do this! Stay strong and keep chugging. I love Syntrax Nectar brand protein powders. Also, Premier Protein shakes are good. I found them at Meijer in the weight loss section but I know a lot of people buy them at Sams Club. Your tastes may change after surgery so I wouldn't buy a lot of anything before surgery. Get samples if possible. I buy from mybariatricpantry.com. Good luck!

    Puree protein ideas anyone?

    Stalls are normal, especially at the 3 week mark. Almost everyone has a stall at 3 weeks. You can research 3 week stall and come up with tons of threads I feel you are doing am excellent job! Keep up the good work and that stall will end soon. You should be careful with carbs, though. They can cause a stall. GNC sells protein pudding that tastes pretty good or get unflavored Unjury protein powder and add to anything you puree.

    Where Are My April 2012 Sleevers?

    Sleeved April 20th 2012. SW 242.2, CW 150.0 so down 92.2lbs so far! I'm anxious to hit the 100lbs mark but my weight loss has slowed down quite a bit. I still have trouble with dense meats, especially chicken, but I don't regret a thing!! Congrats to all of us for our success!!
  10. i am almost 10 months out. i cannot eat most chicken, ice cream, most breads. those things will typically send me running to the bathroom. i eat a lot of greek yogurt and that includes the frozen variety. it tastes good and has a lot of protein. early on i didn't have a desire for sweets. however, i do want sweets at times now, but i have a lot more control than pre-op. sometimes sugar will make my stomach hurt. good luck!

    i would absolutely do it again. it's hard to get used to eating so little. your brain has to catch up to your body. it was worth any pain or adjustments. i had my surgery april 20th 2012 and have lost 87lbs so far. no regrets

  14. Here is a link to read an article from NPR about how having a little extra fat could help a person live longer. I thought it was a very intersting read and wanted to share. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/01/02/168437030/research-a-little-extra-fat-may-help-you-live-longer

    you should definitely tell your pcp to make sure he/he will still provide care after surgery. your pcp can refuse care since you are going to mexico.
  19. i've been lucky to have really only had one stall and it only lasted 2 weeks

    gains can be caused by many things. too many carbs, salty foods can make you retain water, your period and sometimes our bodies just freak out because of the changes. don't worry too much. just keep an eye on your intake and watch the carbs

    caffeine is ok if you can limit it. i'd steer clear of carbonated drinks though. they hurt my stomach and are not good for your sleeve. i very seldom drink caffeine just because i don't want to be addicted again.
  23. exercise is something we need to do. however, i have not been a faithful exerciser and i've lost 72lbs in almost 6 months. i still need to lose another 30lbs but my weight loss hasn't stopped yet.
