  1. Ride a Roller Coaster with my kid's without being so stressed that the lap bar will not close.
  2. From the time I started it now has been almost six months so far and my surgery is expected to be the first week of February. There are a lot of steps that need to be taken. There are mandatory classes, a Psychological evaluation, exercise classes and nutrition classes. There are tests that need to be taken. It is a process to see if you can loose the weight on your own. Hang in there It will all come together.
  3. My insurance also required this. I had to go to my primary doctor once a month, then my primary had to fax forms to my surgeon's office and then they sent those forms on to my insurance company.

I am looking for something like a protein shake at breakfast so many ounces of broth at lunch and so many at dinner. Does anyone have any thoughts or guidelines to go by.

    help..started protein shakes yesterday

    You might try almond milk. It does not have a lot of protein, but it tastes good.
  8. I am using Six Star Pro Nutrition, whey protein elite series triple chocolate. It has 30 grams of protein per scoop and 170 calories. I bought it at Walmart. It has a good taste.If you use skim milk or Almond milk it really punches up the flavor.
  9. My doctor is requiring me to lose 14 pounds before I can have surgery. I have lost seven pounds so and my nurse says if I do not loose the other seven by the end of February I will have to do a liquid diet. Have any of you had to do a liquid diet before your surgery? If you did, what was it and do you have any suggestions on what to do to to loose the weight before surgery.
