    I'm not sexually active, but it seems to me that position would be more important than timing.

    For what it's worth, all my friends are big drinkers. Social events are always boozy. I was a bit unsure how my first social gathering post-surgery would go being the only sober person and... I still had a great night! I sat on fizzy Water with fresh lime all night, felt like I was having a "fancy drink" because bubbles, and I honestly didn't miss the alcohol. Friends got drunk around me, and I laughed along with them.
    So the dry route isn't a terrible one.

    I'd stick to a Virgin Mary. Looks and tastes like a Bloody Mary, with none of the transfer addiction/dumping/hangover risks. But of course, you do you.

    "The old-fashioned way -- by eating less and moving more." It's true (albeit incomplete).

    Have you tried Torani or Da Vinci sugar-free syrups? They come in a lot of yummy flavors.

    I have 2 additions to my list!
    It finally occurred to me today: my heels aren't cracking anymore. Sure, I'm not a dainty-sandal or slingback-kitten-heel person in any way, but even still - my feet are looking good! No more cracks so big you could go spelunking.
    And second: I've become a morning person and can't oversleep. I used to be a night owl, and would easily sleep ten hours if allowed, and that sleep wouldn't be quality because of my terrible breathing (undiagnosed, but I know I had sleep apnea). Now that I breathe normally, I can get by on a lot less sleep, even WITH my cat waking me up multiple times during the night. I wake up at dawn and... I like it!

    FutureSylph got a reaction from SleeveDiva2022 in Surgery on Wednesday. Scared, 2nd thoughts   
    Freaking out a bit? Entirely normal. It's a big decision, and only you can make it for yourself. Do consider, though, that most people who regret having WLS shortly after the surgery are singing a much different tune a few weeks later as their bodies adjust and the weight comes off. Good luck!

    You know, it's so strange how the docs vary so wildly on what and when to eat certain foods. My doc says no salads till 6 months out. So naturally I crave them.

    I had rny on 3/1. I’m eating everything. Just got the ok to eat raw veggies and I couldn’t wait to have a salad. Somethings are too much for me - like grilled chicken (too tough) and seafood - but most things I’m handling well. Still staying away from the bad foods tho. Soups still go down a lot easier and better.
