Get some sippy cups w no spill proof lids. Another good thing is to get sf Jello sf Popsicles and other clear stuff. At my preop class they told us everything to get and it will make ya feel better.

Get yourself a couple pretty plates child size like corning ware salad plates. Crystal light it will still count as a Water. I get the packets cause it just ads to a 16.9 oz.bottle. I'm starting to buy my tomorrow. Walmart. has sugar free muscle milk 100 calories 4 pack. I bought it to try and LOVE it!!! 15 grams Protein. Good luck!

I bought my muscle milk at Walmart, 4 pack for $5.98. I just bought 10 packs for $59.80. That's 40 bottles. If you have a Vitamin Shoppe near you they sell individual bottles if you want to try it. Syntex NectarNectar isolate is also good. Plus if you buy what they sell and don't like it you can return itit. For those of you that don't know, isolate means it will desolve better.

oh and my but said we can drink sugar free carnation instant Breakfast for your Protein Shake. Another drink (hard to find) is Special K Protein packets pink lemonade flavor. My daughter-in-law said she orders them from Amazon.com

Hello all! I had my appointment today with the surgeon. He agreed to complete my surgery, but is making me be smoke free for two months! He scheduled me for surgery 12/20. Glad to report I have not smoked in 3 days. It's been hell, but I'm doing it! Congrats to everyone who is in Nov. Good luck to you all!

Good luck. You can do it!!! I've been smoke free for 25 years. :) so I know it's not easy. Take the money you save for every pack of cigs you would havehave bought and take a little vacation with that money next year. Good luck again.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
