I have Celestial blueberry tea that's really good. I forgot about it. I think I will have some now! I have trouble in the evenings wanting something non stop.

A watched pot never boils ... our USPS at it's finest

LMAO ! ! ! I'm waiting on an order of Mederma from skinwest.com, and my bare minerals make-up from ebay.

Our USPS is ridiculous here. . . I can't stand our carrier. But, hopefully, everything will get here this week sometime.:shocked4:

I've heard that Prefer-on, which you can get at Walgreens, works as well if not better than Mederma

I LOVE LOVE LOVE bareminerals. Did you know you can order it from Ulta.com too? It's the same price as QVC and a lot of times they offer free shipping.

Our USPS isn't much better -- Bob had a change of adress in when we separated -- he put in another one just last week -- his mail is going from my the sender to (our) address to his (old) address and then back to our address again ... he finally went to the PO -- the problem was the first change of address was still in effect and the second one didn't cancel out the first one ... duh!

All my stuff came in today.

I decided to try the Fuzzy Navel flavor first, and I must say that's not bad at all, and taste pretty good. I bet it would be good blended with a little ice for some texture, or a slushie type drink. I'm just not a fan of super cold stuff. Not gritty, it mixed well in 16oz of Water. It's not too sweet either. It doesn't have a "baby formula, Protein mix smell".

1.5 scoops

34.5 grams of Protein

For me I love the Premier Protein Drink. I get my at costco and love them. But, as I have read everyone has something they like or don't like. The Premier has some pretty great Protein Bars to that I have with me when I am busy--they are handy and nice to have around. They don't taste like cardboard like some Protein bars do and the calories aren't bad. The "Twisted" bars are about 190 calories and 15 grams of protein. And not everyone has a Costco to shop at either.

The "Twisted bar" is made by Premier and they are at costco and they are with all the Protien bars. They come in a box with 3 flavors. They cost about $20.00 per box.

I'm lucky in that regard, I've got my choice of a Costco or Sam's both within about 4 miles from my house. Sam's is closer so I generally go there; sometimes I travel to Costco. DF won't go to Costco with me, though, as it's always too crowded for his liking.

I have been asked if you can find Premier Protein on line and the answer is YES. Just look up Premier Protein and there are a lot of sites that sell this product on line. Make sure you check out more than one site because they do differ in price and you want to find the best deal you can.

Take Care,

Lemon Tea flavor is not that tasty. I can't put my finger on why it tastes weird, but I'm determined to drink it. It mixed well with Water, and is not gritty. I wouldn't recommend this one to anyone. I love iced tea, so I was hoping this would be a good fit for me.

I'm just disappointed in the flavoring of this one.

Would it help to add some splenda? Or may mix the lemon and iced tea together for a lemony-tea?

Did you buy sample sizes?

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

      4. FluffyChix

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. )I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
