Tasty but complete multi vitamin



Recommended Posts

That's great! I am delighted to hear when people have a relationship with doctors that is positive. Best of luck!

I got samples of Celebrate Vitamins and a lot of their chewable vitamins contain coconut. Which I am SEVERELY allergic. So, those are a no. I contacted Bariatric Advantage but cannot seem to get them to contact me back for a complete ingredients list (which I cannot find on their site) and samples. So, I am not buying Vitamins that are that expensive without knowing some things. So Flinstones might be my only choice <_<

In my nutrition class we were offered the choice of buying all of our vitamins from Nasobal, they make the B12 nasal spray but also make chewable vitamins and they are covered by some insurance plans making the out of pocket cost lower that most other places. It may be something to look into or talk to your doctor/nutritionist about, I have no idea about ingredients though so you would have to make sure it worked for you.

You are welcome guys :) I was scared to order something without trying it and from my previous surgery I already know that I like and tolerate Celebrate very well so decided to stick with what I know..I may try the package from Nasobal later on in my recovery though. If either of you get it, let me know what you think!

I'm very interested in this thread. I am 2 months out an the only issue I am having is with Vitamins. Someone please help.. I dnt want to get sick or loose my hair! :(

I have tried Bariatric Advantage an I have tried Celebrate, both times I have tried it made sure to put something on tummy an within 15 minutes I was throwing up:(

I need a Vitamin I can keep down! So far only thing I have been able to take is the flinstone gummys, but I'm worried that it's not enough of what I need. Also if ppl are taking the flinstone Gummy are they taking anything else to? Please help... I'm trying to get in a routine an I'm having a very hard time

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
