  1. Happy 34th Birthday JNikki!

  2. Hello I am from Southern California. I am drinking "Premier Protein" form Costco they care 30 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar and the rest of the goodie stuff...with 160 calories. I am not on a liquid diet just yet, they haven't put me on one...I am on a high protein no carb diet., with one meal a day. ADVICE DON'T BE NERVOUS! THIS IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU.

  5. :yikes:I am having Lap Band surgery on 1/21/09! :crying: This is my first post. I'm new to the lapbandtalk thing, Please bear with me. any tips are greatly appreciated.Although I have a good support system I'm really doing this on my own. I've noticed that even the most Supportive friends & family are still a little jealous & weary of what kind of person you will be after the weight loss...:::tt1::: very frustrating. I had P.A.T's today & med. clearance. I have anxiety & panic disorder BUT PUSHED MYSELF to go alone. It wasn't bad... I quit smoking 12/23/08,i will quit eating on 1/20/09 & I suppose I can't drink alcohol 4 a while either! :sneaky:The price we pay for being thin!!!:wink: Any tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks! Talk 2 u all soon!
