    Friends- Can We Really Keep Them?

    I think it's a part of this process, and the evolution of us as people. I am attempting to hang on the things in my friends that attract me to them at their core, but I am very upfront about my lifestyle changes. I guess I remember that I changed, they didn't. Although I accept everyone where they are, and hope for the same.
  9. Looking Good! and no dating expert here...you don't want my advise, I assure you!
  10. Mine, too was blood pressure. I was happily taking off of one of my bp medications.

    Eating Too Fast, Meal Times

    I am 4 days into pureed foods and am learning to slow down the hard way. Being a big guy, I an SOOO accustomed to "inhaling" mass quantities of food. Ohhhh no more!! I was in pain quite a bit this weekend all because I was eating too fast. I am learning which foods do and do not agree with me and today it took me 30-40 minutes to eat 2 ounces of food this afternoon. I mist admit, it was my most satisfying meal yet. It was baby shrimp. I am gonna eat them for a few more days as I figure out this new "eating deal". My sleeve is schooling my big ass, trust me!!
  17. Oh I figured out full!!! 2-3 Ounces and I can feel my sleeve saying"No"!! It screamed at me yesterday! LOL What's really odd is the ability to put it down and walk away.
