OMG. I went to GNC yesterday looking for Isopure Water. Well, the guy basically told me it's gross and they don't have anything else in their store. So, he sent me to Vitamin World. I found a Protein water (70cal, 15 G protein) called proteinO2. The sales lady assured me it tastes good. I bought two bottles, one of each flavor they had. I opened the grape one a few minutes ago, and it is seriously the NASTIEST thing I have ever consumed! Stay far away from the protein waters!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I just got back from my post op 2 week appointment which is the first appointment I've had after surgery. I only lost 10 pounds but the doctor says that's good for my beginning body weight and not to worry it's different for everybody so I won't be worried I know it wasn't cheating so it is what it is I'm going to be happy with the 10 pound loss.concerning the blood pressure issues they took me off my blood pressure medicine today. My beginning blood pressure was 144 over 88 and today it was 118 over 62.they told me it could be the blood pressure that was making me a little weak or dizzy because I seem to be well hydrated. I will have to monitor my blood pressure daily as I have been doing for the last two weeks.

ive heard similar about the waters. i ordered my Isopure 0 carb Protein powders off Amazon. so far dutch chocolate (had for lunch today) and Cookies n cream have been delicious. Just mix with Water. Going to order strawberry next.

quick question for everyone, and it may sound silly. with halloween coming up is there any kind of candy we can eat?

Peek, great job on losing the 10 pounds! That's excellent! Glad they took you off your blood pressure medicine. How does it feel to ALREADY have your blood pressure be more normal and not high?!

I had Isopure in Orange, purple bottle and the pineapple orange. Try are not too bad. I did not have a problem drinking them. They are expensive but worth the Protein. Give it a try if you don't like them GNC allowed you to return them

Thanks! I'll have to go back and give them a whirl.

On my scale, I was down 13.8 yesterday. I didnt have to do a pre-op diet, except for full liquids the day before, so I'm sure a lot of that was Water weight. We will see what my official loss is on Thursday when I go to my first post-op appointment!

Peek!! Congrats on the weight loss!!????

Everyone I am doing 100 percent better. I'm drinking Poweraide and it seemed to do the trick. I took my pressure earlier and it was in normal range it's located in an earlier post.

Congrats to everyone who has had their surgeries for everyone whose to come I want to motivate and encourage you. As you read our post you'll see that everyday is not great but everyday is a new day at a new way of living. It takes getting use to but I can assure you it is all worth it. Getting off of weight related medications makes it really worth it! The end result makes it all worth it.????

Okay just got my times...I have to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 7:30 am and surgery should be between 9:30 and 10. I am sooooo nervous. I'm worried that since my BMI is over 50 I will have complications.... I've had many surgeries and have never been this nervous. Amazingly though, the one person in my life that I thought would be the least supportive has stepped up and has been amazing. I hate to ask but I have 2 requests...can I get some words of encouragement and maybe a funny one liner for a smile. Sorry that I'm rambling...nerves.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
