    Congrats on your progress. How are you coming along. At 2.5 years out, I'm finding the hardest part is maintaining but I continue to work hard. I can now eat more at least a small saucer of food. I have to strive to make good choices. I've worked too hard to get to this point. Just sending you words of encouragement. I tell myself that eating the junk food does not make me nearly as happy as being healthy feels.

    Good luck on your journey im sure you have worked real hard too. Best of luck on your success

Hello everyone!!!
I just wanted to share my excitement for life! My decision to have the VSG procedure began a few months ago late one night while searching on internet for weight loss supplements. I thought to myself, “You can keep taking pills to lose weight, but how long does that does?” I am 38, married, with three out of four kids that are active in every sport possible. I have tried every diet possible as far back as the “Cabbage soup diet” …lol! But needless to say once I made up my mind to make my first appointment with my surgeon and found out that my insurance covers the procedure 100%..... It was final……. There no turning back now.

Hey everyone!!
While surfing the internet last night I found these protien shakes I thought it was a pretty good deal and also a good price for the amount of drinks you get. but anyways here is the wbsite: HOMECARENUTRITION.COM

I ordered the Healthy Shot 24 gram Protien Supplement Beverage Cranberry/Grape 24/2.5fl oz for $48.20 w/free shipping.

Mine will be here by Tuesday just in time.
