Uh-oh, of course I knew you were joking. So was I, but the worst thing to do is explain a misconnect.* One of us was on the uptown bus while the other was on the crosstown.

* But I will anyway. You meant that you'd be the bitchy one, right? I put it on him to be the bitchy one banished to a motel until he gets over it. See? Nothing so sad as a failed jest.

Yes, yes. I definitely would be the bitchy one. After 35 years, hubby knows when to keep quiet. (Also a joke--truth, but joke.) I love forums, but always worry something I say will be misconstrued because there's no way to gather visual cues or because (worse) my mind thinks faster than I type and I left out a crucial word or two. I'll be fine once I figure out the bus schedule.

Cute.

I know what you mean about the visual and auditory cues, but I pretty much stopped worrying about that long ago. Much of what I write is to keep myself entertained during (durian)? the tedium of typing.

We've been getting along so nicely, so let's not worry about an occasional miscue. I think we know that, no matter what, no harm was intended.

@@songsmith --

P.S. 35 years? A grown-up! It's so nice to find you. Not that a great many of us don't go in for WLS.

Yep. I'm a grup. I wish I'd had WLS years ago. I never thought my insurance would cover it, so didn't look too hard into things.

Check into the ones that the doctors office sells. We have the same surgeon and I used the ones made special for the office. The vanilla is outstanding and the chocolate Peanut Butter isn't bad either. When you go to your preop nutrition class they will let you sample them. Also they are very reasonably priced.

You know, I meant to buy some while there last week and completely spaced it. I'll make my way back and get a small sample. Oh, wait. I'll wait till the class. Thanks for the head's up. (Better to sample for free and not spend money on something I may not like. Still need to try the remaining Unjury flavors. Just because I didn't like one doesn't mean I won't like the others.)

CAREFUL!!! The Bolthouse Farms ones are super high in carbs. The vanilla one has 29g carbs (28g sugar) and only 16g of Protein in 200 calories and that's for 8 fl oz. The bottles are almost 16oz so that's 400 calories, 56g sugar and 32g Protein if you drink the whole bottle.

I have purchased Protein bars from our very own BariatricPal Store and they sent me 4 samples of single serve Syntrax nectar. By the way their prices are better than the previous place mentioned in this post.

I HATED Unjury - nasty tasting, and even trying to choke it down, it made me throw up it was so foul tasting to me. I gave it several tries, but something is definitely off as far as I was concerned. Even the smell makes me gag.

Thanks!! Sometimes I just forget to read all the info. I already threw the bottle away.

Sorry, have to laugh! I think we've all been there, done that with Protein shakes!

The tastes of Protein shakes and powders are so subjective, like BLERDgirl said! Sometimes I recommend various ones to people, but I also include a warning that my tastes might be different than theirs…and also that their tastes may change after surgery so don’t stock up too much when you’re still pre-op!

The only real strategy is to keep trying. Do your best to try to get samples and to buy small amounts so you don’t end up wasting too much!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
