    I've had Pinot Noir, Reisling & Zinfandel, but the empty calories are the bigger concern for me, so yesterday opted for CrystalLight. But I agree once in a while it's okay.

    I did not ask my dr, but I've been cautious and waited to add things while at home (we're traveling), rather than "toad froth" on a trip.

    Let me know how you work things out.l Just curious!
    Toad froth!!!!!!! I cannot stop lolling HAAAAAAA :-)

    I do have one problem with you. I hesitate to bring it up but here goes. I lose a pound and you lose a kilo. That is not fair! Good job kid.
    HAHA, I think you're doing good Phil :-)

Now almost 3 months post-op, I find I can enjoy a glass, sometimes 2 but that's it. This is coming from a person who could drink up to a bottle of wine by myself on a weekend night. My tastes also changed from red (cabernet) to white (chardonnay) as red still gives me heartburn. Also, I used to drink beer too occasionally but I cannot even touch it now as the carbonation is painful. I used to drink at least a glass or two of wine a night and now I have a glass or two on the weekends occasionally. Believe it or not, the surgery has helped lessen my craving for it which is a good thing.
    That's interesting Tracey as i would usually choose red, in fact i would choose a dry martini but I think those days may be gone!! it will be interesting to see if my tastes change :-)

    Always a good plan Dutchie, I am currently into smoked salmon and scallops because I care about them a lot! Don't you find that now you choose the very nicest food and put it on the nicest serving dish. We can't fit much in so we must have the best! How is Morroco? The food? It must be pretty good :-)

    Just be really careful, because you can't drink like you used to. Or like anyone else you are hanging around with. I've learned that lesson. Sticking to the one drink rule is probably a really good idea.
    Absolutely Sraebaur, never a good look to be falling around drunk! Plus we can make drinks last these days :-)

    I nursed a screwdriver about 2 1/2 months post op as we were celebrating after work one night. I was fine. I have drank since then. No issues whatsoever. I do avoid fizzy drinks, though.

    I can't lie I had my surgery on Dec 6th this year & I had a couple shots of tequila on Christmas and a few more on New years eve. I have had a glass of wine here and there too. I stay away from juice & bubbles though.

    Thanks for asking!
    The food here is sooo good!
    Eating out is wonderful, all those beautiful tajines en couscous dishes, and the herbs!
    OMG... to die for.
    I love it here!

    I only don't care for the bread.
    They only use white flour and that is something I don't wabt to eat anymore...
    So, I bake my own bread, with wholeweat breadmixes I brought with me.
    Please note: after months of reading I decided I wanted to be more active here and I want to write more. But please bear in mind, that English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications. I am doing the best I can!

    Hi!
    I had my first sip of a margarita at Christmas. I say "sip" because that was all I needed to find out it didn't feel very good. The sip burned in my little stomach. So, I guess I'm not ready but, I WILL try again in the spring when we are out on the back patio and the urge hits for something delicious to take the edge off. Just take a sip and see if it's ok for you. I think everyone is so different.

    I enjoyed my spirits socially pre-op and wondered how this was going to work for me after WLS. I had a lemon drop martini for my birthday in December (5 months out) and just sipped it. It did not settle great so my hubby finished it for me. Since then, I have tried a couple of other drinks in moderation where again, I would sip and my hubby would finish. I enjoy just going out now. I love to dress up where I used to not really care. I try to "do" things when we go out and not just sit around with people eating and drinking. It has been fun to do new things!!

    LOL! Moderation in everything dear Pam :-) I have had an odd sip over the holiday and I probably won't bother again for months but i do appreciate a good glass of wine or a dry martini. Mind you the martini may be out for life now!!!!
