Is lactaid working for you?? It doesn't seem to be working for me but maybe I am not taking enough.


When I remember to take it! LOL sometimes I forget 🤭

quick advice on the Hair loss issue... if you are interested in extensions etc then have a look at Evawigs.com ... I've dealt with major hair loss from alopecia for years and love the wigs I get from them... but hopefully the issue resolves itself for you!

what good soy options have you found?

The best soy option is NowSports chocolate Soy Protein. You can get it off Amazon and it is pretty cheap in comparison to other options. Also RedCon1 makes MRE lite which is all animal-based protein (not whey, but actually like... meat). They are more expensive, however.

Oh, and even though I had a real sweet tooth before surgery, I get tired of sweet things now.
Hope that will be me. I could do without regular food and eat sweets all day.

And it does work, I used to be a real Sweet-Toother, made great cakes , Cookies and pies, had to taste-test each to make sure they were fit for human consumption, after all. Now I have NO DESIRE, in truth the very thought repulses ME. Who would have thought that? Not me if you had asked me a year ago. And now I am 9 months past and down 120 pounds, getting close to leaving Plus Sizes forever and I started out a BIG GIRL! But Big MAMA has left the building and a REBORN CUTIE-PIE has arrived, and I have found "MYSELF" under my Fat Shell and now the World🌏can see it too!

The post surgery heart burn.... I’m a year out and still take my daily tablet for heartburn, dr did mention it, but I was overly optimistic that the weight loss would get rid of it.

the daily Vitamins, for the rest of my life, I really notice if I forget for a day or two. The neck when you are losing weight can look a bit loose, fine now! But for a month or so looked really odd....think fat barstard from Austin Powers lols

But I will take all of this for how amazing I feel, I have so much more energy, and enjoy seeing myself in the mirror. Wish I’d done it earlier!

Please do not listen to all the huge problems have physically. People love to share those but thousands of people do not have any physical issues from recovering from surgery to keeping things down. I find people with no issues tend to stay quiet. You are doing this for quality of life. You are saving your life. Of course there is tons of doubt you are normal but if you stay on current path you know what you get. Take a chance for a fighting chance!

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
