Thanks. I'm pretty confident I'll need to keep up the shakes, but I wanted to see if there was another way available. The problem with me is that the sugar-free products- all the syrups, packets, etc. - taste really awful. Sickly sweet and fake. I never liked them pre-op and now that I'm so newly out of surgery, everything tastes weird still. They're even sweeter than usual. I have been drinking some watered down crystal lite that is agreeing with me, but I haven't yet found a protein shake I wanted to finish.
Temporarily holding on losing more because I'm gaining! Pregnant with my first baby (a boy!) due June 2013, after two rounds of IVF. SO GRATEFUL!
