  1. So sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your sister's story, along with your own. It's tragic for all in your family and hopefully the kind words of those who respond lend some small comfort to you.

    Dry Brushing

    It also removed dead skin cells and is good for the lymphatic system. I learned to use straight strokes, not circular, always brush toward the heart. My skin feels better (softer), not sure if it will look better.
  3. Wow! So incredible! Congrats and enjoy living!!
  4. Speculoos is purchased at Trader Joes, I'm not sure where else. I just mentioned Biscoff cookie spread in another thread, it's pretty much the same thing. Super sinfully yummy. Not on our prescribed eating plan, for sure!

    Dry Brushing

    Has anyone experimented or have knowledge of "dry brushing" to help with skin elasticity/cellulite? I have some, but not terrible, loose skin and would like to avoid surgery, if possible. I've read that "dry brushing" can help and it's certainly easy and inexpensive. The question is, is it effective?
  6. Every stage of liquid (pre and post) was bad unless you enjoy the shakes. I was excited once I was able to start experimenting with food, even purée.

    I KNEW IT! :p

    I grew up immune to the lure of Oreos, because I don't like chocolate. Then they came out with the Golden Oreos and I understood the attraction. And may I mention another great transformation? Biscoff Cookies (thank you Delta) now has a cookie butter spread. Smooth or crunchy! It is divine!

    My very first soft food was a puréed deviled egg. It was delicious!

    Tummy tuck today!

    Looking great, BTB! In another month, you'll be used to yet another new normal.

    Best and worst "compliments"

    I've had absolute strangers compliment me several times, so they don't know I've lost weight, just that I look pretty, happy, etc. it's odd, but the most flattering of all. And I like when my dry cleaner says "Hi, Slim!"

    Fitness and sleeping

    It's a simple blood test. Easy to check. Hope you can figure it out!
  12. You are doing great and look fabulous, my dear. Keep it up!
  13. There are some of the funniest, awful, hysterical, gut wrenching reviews on Amazon for Haribo sugar free gummy bears. I laughed so hard I cried. http://www.amazon.com/Haribo-Gummy-Candy-Sugarless-5-Pound/product-reviews/B000EVQWKC

    Would you do it again?

    Absolutely no regrets!
