I would think he would get you some roses instead this year. You'll be able to have regular strawberries in a few weeks, so you have that to look forward to.

That’s a nice thought but I don’t like flowers. Such a waste of money lol

Fair enough, but chocolate covered strawberries are a waste of a perfectly good strawberry.

Good for you. You're looking at the long range benefits of sticking with the program as opposed to rationalizing how to go around it. That strawberry will taste much better next year.

why not a healthy sub? :) I say "healthy" cuz um, depends who you're asking! ;) Why not get some of the low carb strawberry Greek yogurt (on your plan) and add a squeeze of sugar free Hershey's chocolate Syrup to it? :)

I would get my HEB Plain Greek Yogurt and Walden Farms Strawberry pancake Syrup and the SF Hershey's and go to town with "dessert"! :) And say, better living through chemistry as I shoveled it down my piehole. :)

That sounds good. But i refuse to go to the grocery store again. While the bastards are freshly dipping strawberries right when you walk in. We don’t have a HEB here...where do you live? In the south?

Next year you can have one. And you will look fantastic and feel better than you have years I bet.

Think of that!

Yes exactly. Thank you. But it felt good to whine about this to people that get it :)

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
