    Re: post-op struggle - asking for hubby

    So glad you updated, and he's gotten a bit sorted out. I struggled (still struggle) with nausea and some vomiting (well, toad-froth vs food). But only when I eat too quickly, or too much.

    Yes, a world where pumpkin pie isn't a vegetable seems wrong. In the South, Banana Pudding ('Nanner puddin' is noted as a vegetable choice on menus, lol.)

    Anyone with that much going on, especially when they were going for a change (positive one), would be stressed and maybe a little depressed.

    Re: Best tool in your weight loss?
