How did I miss this? I am here, living in Grandville and also sleeved by GHP!

Well Howdy neighbor (Jenison here). Have you been to the Monday night surgical peer support group at GHP? IF not, why not? Monday 5-6pm, great group!

Well, I think I got a sheet once about it but never thought about it again. And now I just joined the Gazelle Sports training group to train for the River Bank Run. I want to do the 5k and they train Monday and Wednesday night! I'll think about it for after May 14th!

Hi Susanne,

I just looked at your blog and I am also on the liquid Calcium from costco. I can't swallow those pills either!!! They make me wanna gag. I am also taking GNC's Solotron chewable Multi-Vitamin wafer's (berry flavored) that are pretty good. Any negatives about the Multi liquid? I was going to try it but decided to wait. Good Luck on the 5K!!!!! You should be sooooo proud of yourself :)

Thanks for stopping by my ramblings :-)

I actually like the liquid multi, it tastes like a condensed juice -- but then I was always a huge fan of multi Vitamin juices that are available in many European countries.

I think the nutritional profile of the liquid is better than most "non-pills". I mean, the big fat pills are big fat because they were full of stuff, sometimes 1000x the recommended value. I noticed with lots of gummies, they are not even 100%. Well, the liquid is better than that.

You can try and dump it in some flavored Water, I like to mix Trop50 Blueberry with Water as my beverage (not a fan of Crystal Lite and the like) and I can put it in there too. But even if I take a shot of it, it's fine.

Oh, and the trick! Shot glass of multi and then the Calcium in the same glass. That way, you don't have as much calcium stuck to the walls of the glass, it slides off and less clean up :-)

Awesome..thanks!!! I will have to give it a try when I go back to costco. Anything to make my life a little easier I'm all for... :)

I know this post is a little old, but I wanted to add my two cents. I was sleeved on November 22, 2010 by Dr. James PIlkington in alma.

Deakay: I recently found some Protein bars with 30 grams of Protein at the Sam's Club in Saginaw. I've never been to a costco, but it would be nice to have one in the area.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
