    Who's In Need Of A Mentor?

    Hi Rina, Yea I feel your pain with computer, believe I did receive it. Still amazed how they handle procedure over there. I'll try to answer all your questions, yea over here it's totally different. We don't use kg here we use lbs, I did take vitamins at start. Here they start you off with liquid diet for 3 weeks, switch to soft mushy food next stage, into solid food again. How do they handle fills? How often? Here it's every 3 months in-between mostly, depends on Dr. Protein shakes are way to start off. I used to purchase a large container of dry protein powder, flavored & un flavored. In mornings have a protein shake, use skim milk,I did. I tell everyone look for flavors you enjoy for mix. The un flavored mix with juices. To change it up. For soft mushy, basically anything you can mush with fork easily qualifies. Gotta stop breads. Another thing is don't drink while eating, in fact they tell everyone no fluids 1/2 he before & after eating. I was and still am not a healthy eater, I didn't follow my guidelines. I just found ways to prepare foods I enjoyed that got me fat, in a way I could eat them again, just smarter. I found using crackers, such as triscuits in substitution of breads. Some things still are unable to eat. Don't worry we'll find your zone. Email me at slvrnblk77@aol.com . Direct contact for me faster than me checking forum. Sure I missed few questions, tell me what I missed I'll fill in blanks :-)

    G'day Tina... Thought I'd give my Aussie accent a whirl. ..lol. ..so let's see... when did you have it done? My personal opinion, why would you put a tool into somebody and not tell them how to use it? May as well given a loaded gun to a kid and said here play with this. o_O. Well I can tell you from personal experience, can't quit smoking and diet at same time. One the withdrawal will make you attack sugar more, hence no loss. And the stress will make your cravings worse.. do you know the amount of c.c.' s band holds, and amount in presently?
