There's a lot of debate on the acidity thing. Honestly it comes down to how you tolerate it. I was allowed Decaf coffee as well right away if I wanted it. Generally the concern with coffee is with the caffeine. It can act as a diuretic and since the early days can be so difficult to get fluids down they don’t want you peeing anymore than you need to! But again, there are a lot of arguments to the diuretic side of caffeine. From personal experience the only issue I had was transitioning back to regular coffee from decaf. I am much more sensitive to getting caffeine jitters since surgery. I had to do ¾ decaf to ¼ regular for a while, then went to ½ and ½, and up from there. I’m a year out and actually thinking of going back to half and half because I love my coffee but it doesn’t love me back so 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)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
