I'm usually OK if I walk or b

Add ice to Optifast. Experiment with sugar free syrups, extracts, Crystal Light, coffee granules, etc., to add favor. Use blender.

Hi guys!

I can hardly believe I'm 11 weeks out today; how did the time go by so quickly?

I was really pleased when I got on the scale this morning to discover I am 233.2 Lbs now. I'm down 70.8 Lbs since starting Optifast! I can hardly

Woohoo! I weighed 233.2 Lbs this morning.  I'm down 70.8 Lbs now!  It's almost impossible for me to believe I weighed 304 Lbs a few short months ago, and now I'm 233.2!!!  Only 3.2 more Lbs to go a...

I'm so excited! I signed up for the Great Cycle Challenge, Canada, and pledged to ride 75 km in the month of June to help raise money to fight cancer in children.

I hope it won't rain every day in June, lol.

Hi guys. When I logged in just now, Firefox gave me a log in warning, accompanied by an icon showing a lock with a line crossed through it. It said, "Not a secure connection; your log in details can be viewed by others". Did anyone else get that ?</

Since starting back on purees yesterday, I've noticed that when I'm almost finished my meal, I will hiccup, once. Is that my body's cue to stop eating, lol? I've decided it is, but is that crazy of me, lol?

So far, no pain after eating, thank

So, I am feeling like crap. I spent the entire day at the ER. I thought it was just my asthma, and after almost 8 hours in the ER, found out I have pneumonia. So now I'm on antibiotics and hopefully they will work to clear things up.

Good morning!

I was told (at my one month post op appt) to add skim milk powder to my soups, etc., to up the protein content. So I bought some, but don't know whether or not it's even worth it.

One serving size is 4 tbsp, and has 13 g
