    All of my December sleevers...

    Hang in there....I've been the same weight for about 10 days .. wait, let me rephrase that...I haven't lost anything in 10 days, in fact the scale says I've gained 2 lbs.... crazy and frustrating...

    Quest Protein Bars?

    Never mind! I just went to the Quest website and found the cookie dough flavor -- it's new. AND I found that you can order individual bars -- not as cheap as ordering the box of 12 of one flavor but worth it to me to get what I know I like.

    Quest Protein Bars?

    This morning I had half the Cinnamon Roll..... yep, just like everyone says, it was very good...I think that is my favorite so far. I wish the company would allow you to choose the flavors that you want for the variety box. That way you'd never get tired of one flavor. I didn't see a Quest cookie dough flavor...where to you find it?

    Quest Protein Bars?

    I had the Peanut Butter and Jelly for lunch today.... VERY good. It really did taste a lot like peanut butter and jelly!
  5. There was no question in my mind which was a better choice for me. The lap band just was something I was not comfortable with...I did not like the idea of relying on a foreign object that needed adjustments, tweaking, removal, replacement, etc. When I read about the gastric sleeve I immediately started seriously considering weight loss surgery. It is straightforward and it is for life....no ambiguous adjustments or band failure.... I wish you the best with whatever decision you make!

    56 lbs is great! Are you on prescription Vit D? I've been on it on and off for a few years I can never keep mine up to a normal level.

    When did u stip crushing ur meds?

    Maybe I should have! I think I skipped all my meds for a few days after surgery and then just went straight into taking them.... for the first month or so I spaced them out during the day and evening. My doc never said one way or the other..

    Ladies - Your Thoughts?

    Ok, I have noticed more and more that I'm attracted to bald men. I'm talking about the guys who are going bald and say the hell with it and shave it all. The head shape has a lot to do with it I think. And another thing, the bald men who act like they KNOW they look good ( or at least are not self conscious about it) are even more sexy. And yes, I actually had already decided that you looked great before you even asked! ~Dana

    How many oz are you eating?

    If I'm in a rush I can drink my 12oz Protein shake in a matter of 10-15 minutes. My guidelines specified that liquids /protein shakes will NOT stretch sleeves but I've often wondered if he left mine a little too big.... Solid protein is different....If I push it I can probably eat 3-4oz but that would make me uncomfortable... I'm usually at my limit with dense protein at about 2 - 3oz... Ground beef and fish are the easiest for me. chicken a little harder and I find pork uncomfortable with just a few bites..

    All of my December sleevers...

    Surgery 12/21 Day of Surgery: 271 Current Weight: 239 -32 lbs Trying not to be disappointed and frustrated because I am behind most people in stats. But hey, 32 lbs is 32 lbs right? As long as I keep losing I feel ok. My fear is that I will STOP losing...
