    Lee, not yet. But I have a consultation in early August with a cosmetic surgeon / aesthetician (spelling?) to see what my options are. Mostly, I just want my younger neck and jawline back. :)

    Re: Drinking cold fluids

    I drink a lot more water when it's warm, even hot.

    But after losing 100 pounds, I'm pretty cold-natured now. Don't need to be cooled off. Just warmed up. :)

    I can DEFINITELY eat more than 3-4 ounces! (I'm nearly 5 years post-op.) Remember, I'm the one who eats 9-10-11 servings daily of veggies and fruits.

    I didn't write a Fourth Surgiversary post -- a LOT was going on last year, and I just didn't have time / energy / focus to do one.
