    just a little encouragement

    As someone who is just a few days away from getting her surgery date, I really needed to hear this! Thank you! You look amazing and I'm so glad you feel amazing too! I hope to check out your YT channel!

    Food processor vs Mini blender

    I purchased a little 3 cup food processor so I’m hoping I’ll have the counter space for it, at least through the purée stage. I think I’m going to be using my mini blender a ton! I actually bought the 3 year protection plan for the blender since it’ll be used so much, ha!

    Popsicle Molds

    I thought I’d see how they do with the walmart water powder packs. I like the idea of the sugar-free Hawaiian Punch or kool-aid!

    Food processor vs Mini blender

    Thanks so much! I didn’t even think about the hot food. I just bought a food processor. 😀
  6. For the puréed food stage did y’all use a food processor or a blender? I have a mini blender with a 20 oz cup that I was thinking would work but I’m second-guessing myself now. Thanks!

    Popsicle Molds

    Thank you, I will give those molds a try! I'm glad you reminded me to put protein powder with the pudding pops & popsicles. I'm such a newbie that I may not have thought of that. 🤭

    Popsicle Molds

    If you use popsicle molds, what are your favorite ones? I'm overwhelmed by the choices on Amazon! I was hoping to find one that will make the typical Popsicle brand popsicle shape but I'm not having much luck so far. I'd like to make my own because I don't really care for the sugar-free Popsicles. I'm also hoping to make pudding pops if anyone has a hint on a good way to make those!

    ms.sss legs evolution

    Awesome!!! I have a friend who I meet online several years ago who said she wanted to be a "sunshine girl". Her grandma would call ladies who had a thigh gap "sunshine girls" because you could see the sun shining between their thighs, ha! So you are definitely a sunshine girl now!!!

    Good surgeon in the north Alabama area?

    My cousin had surgery with Dr. Todd Foreman at Alabama Surgical Associates in Huntsville. She said he did a wonderful job & he's very to the point. She does feel like he could've provided her with more guidance though. He seems to have good reviews online. Good luck with everything!
  11. Has anyone had surgery with Dr. David Diaz or Meridian Surgical Group located in Carmel, Indiana? I'd love to know your experience. I've only seen him during the initial consultation and I should be getting my surgery date soon. I was very impressed so I'm hoping that'll still be the case come time for surgery & post-care! Thanks!

    I'm grew up in Athens so hello former neighbor! I'll ask my cousin where she had hers done. She lived in Athens at the time.

    Nausea from protein shakes/powder

    OK, I feel silly. It just hit me that as soon as my doc upped my diabetes medication is the same time I started trying the protein shakes. I'm going back to my regular amount of medication so I'll try the shakes again in a few days. Hopefully that'll do the trick!

    I haven't tried that but I certainly will! Thank you!

    Nausea from protein shakes/powder

    Even though I've been experiencing nausea, I can say that the self-made shakes are so much better tasting than the ready-to-drink ones in my opinion.
