Hey FireFly... We just barely missed each other there in Mexicali. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet, but I'm so happy to hear you're back home and on the sleeved side! Sounds like you're feeling very similar to the way I was feeling at first. Still a bit chilly here and there, but a nice pair of socks seems to help. :smile:

How is your weightloss so far, and how is your tummy? I hope all is well! Did you meet all the nice people that were there whilst you were there? I met a few that came in the day before you, from Washington State and Canada, nice people. It was a pleasant experience for me, overall. Hope it was for you too!

Best! :001_rolleyes::biggrin0:

I have lost 10 pounds as of yesterday. I am making an effort not to get addicted to the scale. Trying for just once a week weighing.

My tummy isn't bad. The site of the where the drain was is sore but the others are not. I can sleep on either side so I'm happy enough.

Met some nice people. A man from the Pacific North West, a woman from Canada and 2 ladies from Tennessee (I think).

I'm doing fine. Sounds like you are too. I'm anxious to get to the mushie food though. Clear is pure torture. I didn't think it would be a big deal to have only clear but it IS!!!!!

I liked Sobe Lifewater from Target, many various flavors to try, and it contains some Vitamins. If you hit it lucky you'll catch a sale, 50 cents each, 20 ounce bottles! I still drink it as my primary liquid, I load up my pantry when it is on sale. At least it provides some flavor variety, zero calorie, not too sweet, no aspartame (it uses stevia), and you get the benefit of some vitamins.

No benefit to me by the way, if you buy it. I just like it.

Thanks. I'll give it a try. Right now I'm drinking a bottle of Propel. It has some sugar but not a lot. It was on the approved list from Dr. Aceves.

That Sobe Lifewater is a LIFE saver, for sure. Last I saw at Target it was $1 a bottle, a pretty good deal... They also have it at costco now, and it's pretty cheap, comes in a case of like 12 or something? Anyways, I started drinking it before the surgery, and I like most of them. Some more than others, but like you said, they are a great choice and pretty darn healthy.
