I occasionally use Premier. I am not a fan of chocolate, however I believe the vanilla tastes like the creamy part of rice pudding, and is much better cold than room temperature. The thing with Proteins, is you'll have to see what flavor your palate likes the best. They are a good deal.

I buy the vanilla. They are very sweet. The first few weeks after my surgery I had to gag them down but now I am fine with them. (4 months out) 30 grams each... Can't beat that.

I bought strawberry but haven't tried the other flavors. Sam's club carries 3 and I'll be buying a couple more cases pretty soon. I like the strawberry but I'd like to taste the others.

Premier Pro Tien isn't on my approved Protein Shake list. I can only have pure whey or soy isolate not any blends. Is Premier a blend is that why I can't have it?

Yes, it is a blend. But it's on the list my nutritionist gives. She says it's very popular too. This goes to show, every provider is different.

How much were they at Sam's club? They were on sale for $19.99 at costco.

I had my blood work done last week so now I'm waiting for my call to start my pre op diet :) Premier Protein was on my list the nutritionist gave me for post op Protein ideas!! I'm in New Brunswick canada :) I've been trying a few shakes and I find if you blend them with ice for a min in the blender it's amazing

      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!
