    Re: Startbucks

    I like the skinny mocha. But it’s pretty syrupery, so I get one less pump of the skinny mocha mix.
    At home or work I just use premier protein carmel or vanilla.

    Re: Concerned

    I am 8 days post op. I am still having some abdominal pain, but i had a hiatal hernia repair. But it’s getting better each day. But don’t regret having the surgery. Getting up and walking has helped.
