I am so frustrated with trying to find a protein drink I can tolerate! I have tried premier protein, synthrax nectar and another one but I can’t remember the name.

Had my appointment yesterday and they said I've lost 22% of my excess weight! woo hoo!

I am having the worst luck with multivitamins! I have tried the Flintstones chewables, the generic brand, Centrum Flavor Bursts chewable and Centrum Woman's Multivitamin.

Well I survived! Surgery was a lot worse then I thought it was going to be. I never had surgery before. First the IV in my right hand wasn't working so while I was under they put a new IV in my l

So I had my surgery Tuesday, September 19th and the doctor said everything went great. I was supposed to get discharged yesterday but I was having a lot of trouble drinking fluids and my pain levels were between 7-9. I was finally able to get discharge
