Quick  update although I am sore overall not as bad as I thought. Still it is my calves that hurt the most but was up this morning at 4:30 to go to the gym with my son. I swim in the light walk and continue to stretch. At this point cannot imagine doing another but you never know right!!!

Topic: RE: Micronized Creatine Anyone?

What are you trying to do with creatine? Just curious. I dont know about creapure or micronized creatine, but I know that creatine will help your muscles store water and give some a little more strength and appearance of bigger muscles. However, the scale will move, so thats tough on a lot of people.

I've also heard that once you stop taking it, the change in size is converted to fat. I dont know how true that is, though

nuts are the best   something that does not taste like a shake   i think my body does not digest them well bc i see pieces in TMI toilet. 

Being dehydrated only a cup or two can sow up as fatigue - make sure you are suprt hydrated BEFORE exercising    When all you can do is sip sip sip it takes a long time to replenish that fluid. 

Sounds like you r doing great!!!!

Any of you guys ever taken Creapure or another Micronized Creatine?  Interested in other people's experiences if so!  Thanks!

Ran my 1st Marathon today. Still hard to wrap my mind around that...

As I crossed the finish line arms raised with my 15 year old son Evan and 14 year old daughter Abby I cried tears of joy, pride and gratitude for choosing WLS and giving me a chance for a healthier life!!!! At 350 then and 205 now this would not have been possible!!!I highly doubt I will run another....still ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

Yours in WLS,
