I am getting things together for my trip to Mexico. I will be staying a few days in San Diego before heading home.

I've packed some peppermint tea bags in case of nausea, but wondering if I can use my pink packets of sweet and low or saccharin?

I've read about a lot of artificial sweetners after surgery but can't find anything on Saccharin?

Anyone still use this??

If you like it, use it. Previous studies linking it to cancer have been debunked.

Thank you! I just wasn't sure how my new stomach would react. I've used it for years, so it wouldn't be new..

Everything I've read says it's ok. Couldn't hurt to ask your nutritionist?

Have you tried Splenda? I can't imagine liking saccharin! I know some people must or they wouldn't still sell so much of it...but that's a mystery to my taste buds:)

Yes, I've tried splenda and don't like it. I guess its what you're used to, I've used sweet and low in my coffee and saccharin in my tea for 40+ years!! I was sure hoping I could continue with it, I definitely don't like unsweetend coffee or tea!!

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
