costco has Premier Protein Shakes. You may also want to check out Wal-Mart.

There's a good health food store in Asheville and I'm sure they have single pack Protein powders if you want to try something. Or just a healthy salad bar that will have good options for healthy foods to choose from. Our coop here is expensive but I have so little that it works out. Have a safe trip -- so sorry about your Mom. Sending best wishes. And don't forget that you have to take are if YOU, too. Sometimes it's hard to choose ourselves first but that's the healthy thing to do. Like the oxygen mask first on you then the one you're with. If you need a beautiful place to walk around there are many to choose from there.

There is LOTS and LOTS of things in Asheville. Go to builtmore house if you have time. You will do just fine. Keep your head in it!

The botanical gardens in Asheville is phenomenal if you get the chance. If you have a time crunch the Biltmore is a must.

Sorry I don't know of any hotels there that would be inexpensive.

There is a Trader Joes downtown. The Asheville Mall on tunnel road has old navy and a GNC. I'm pretty sure there is a vitamine shoppe too. One of my new fave places to eat is Moe's bbq near builtmore, not to be confused with Moe's cantina. Good luck, Asheville is a fairly large city so you should be able to find everything you need.

There are tons of things to do. The Orange Peel is great if there is a show you wanna see, go to Chimney Rock if you have time, it's about 45 mins out of the city. Builtmore is good, but expensive. Even just walking around downtown is fun.

Good luck Sara

Sorry for the reason. Health food stores. GNC Vitamin? Even grocery or longs, cvs have some options. I Bring Protein Bars when I travel. My band gets a little testy with flying but calms down...hoping you have fridge for yogurt or something that you can get there

Keep us posted and blessings

Asheville is a really cool town! Lots of things to do, pretty area, artsy (if you're into that) and there's always the Biltmore. I live a little over an hour from there and get there as often as I can. Hope your trip went well!

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      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.
