  1. So I am day 3 - post op and experiencing many of the same hurdles so many have posted that had surgery before me... but instead of focusing on those hurdles, I thought it would be nice to lighten the mood a little and see how people will respond to the following prompt: What is or was your goal outfit? I think (well... strike that - I know) that I am a little weird in that I don’t have a goal outfit in mind. I thought that I would pick one out before I went in for the big event, but the more I thought about it, it just felt strange to pick out and purchase smaller clothing and honestly I didn’t want the side glances from other people in the store when I purchased a dress that didn’t fall into the three T’s: Tent, Tablecloth, Tapestry. So instead, I decided that my goal outfit will be a kayak. A true kayak - not one of the open ones. When I can get in and out and paddle an entire day without falling dead of exhaustion and perhaps catch a couple fish - - -I will call it GOAL!!! How about you? What is or was your goal outfit?

    Honestly, I feel like the gif below. I am in a constant state of Hangry. I am with you @MissSmartyPants I can not stand protein powders/ready make shakes. Gag. I've been able to choke down Fairlife, but I am not sure how much longer. So not looking forward to drinking any more... I am also not fond of artificial sweeteners and for some reason they taste even more sweet recently - if that makes sense?! I with you! We all have the same surg date! 2/22... ONLY 6 MORE DAYS TO GO!
  4. Thank you for posting this. It is really reassuring to hear of long term results, especially those with hypothyroidism. I plan on making a chart and plan this weekend to help me after surgery.
