    Re: Confession Time!

    So what you're saying is you're not only a WLS superstar, you're also a saint. I would have beat those kids to death. Good thing I'm not a teacher... and neither are you now. Happy retirement to you!...

    Re: Pre-Op FAIL

    Whine away! We're here to listen and offer support/sympathy. I didn't have to do a pre-OP diet, and I don't know that I would have been able to handle it if I had to.

  5. Re: Have you had luck with a weight loss journal?

    I do not track. Like you, I hate it. I tried, but I found it tedious, and not always accurate. If I have fast food, that's pretty easy, but home cooked meals were more of a guessing game, and I'm...

    Re: Daily Meds after Surgery

    According to my doctor, you should not take time released medications after the sleeve. Make sure to ask about this if any of your medications are time released.

    Re: What works for me

    No, it absolutely won't work for everyone as we all have to find our own way that works. I've had to make adjustments, too as things change. It's not as easy to keep off as before, so I have to be a...

    What works for me

    You guys know I'm basically a human garbage disposal. I never intended to give up eating the foods I want/crave when I had WLS, so I didn't. I didn't know I was going to end up craving junk more...

    Dutch, here's the ingredients. It's a light flavor and not at all overwhelming. I'm not typically a fan of flavored waters, but these are really good.
