happy Thursday!

Silly questions, is the Chike protein coffee decaf? (I don’t believe it is based off of what I’ve read). Since we shouldn’t have caffeine - and it makes me feel crazy - I’m looking for something similar. I can drink a g

its time to get me that food scale! I don't fully trust my eyes.

Is there one, not too expensive, that can communicate with MFP?

So, I haven't gone to the doctor yet, but for quite some time I have been feeling blah. Tired, always tired. Now, yes I work 2 jobs and I just moved. However, I think it cold be a slight deficiency of Vitamin D?

I do not take vitamins, Last tim

I have had an arm lift done already that I took out a loan for. They were my worst disgust. I am extremely happy. Finally paid that loan off also. I can't ever take a loan like that again and I certainly don't have the cash. Budgeting isn't in the pict

Well, yesterday marks my official 4 years since I had VSG. At (almost 25 years old then) it was the best decision I have ever made. I have zero regrets - even with a regain and semi currently struggling all around right now.

I was born a 10lb b

So my coworker was like "I want cake". And I said "me too!". Well my boss was on her way out just now to get her lunch and she asked if we wanted anything. My co worker said she wanted a cookie or crumb cake and asked if I wanted too. I said 'no'. I di

Long story short {to backtrack}, I have been having what I call 'gas pain attacks' which is similar painful attacks like gallstone attacks. Which I don't have a gallbladder - got that removed March 2013 after my VSG. I started having them after this su

So, to back track quickly, my lowest weight since VSG 12/2012 (highest weight 326) was 180 about 2 years out. I was one of those who just ate the world after a while, because my stomach can tolerate it. Welp, I got up to 222. I was around 219-220 for a

So, I have heard numerous things about this. Is it okay to mix premier protein shake in iced coffee (obviously decaf!)? Some don't dare to, and others are like, YEAH! Uh, what??

So, I am one of those who has gained 40-ish lbs since the lowest. Highest was 326, lowest was 180. Regain was to 222, current is 216 (BOOM).

Today it was hailing in Jersey. Because mother nature is a freak. So, it was time to rip out the 'tall

So, a few times I have had these "gas pain" attacks as I call it. 

I feel a pressure build up in my solar plexus, and I just know its coming. It feels like my insides are being squeezed like an orange, I cant breath. I feel like I need to curl

So, I have heard many different things - even from different nutritionists!

Does a shake count? Since you add in water / almond milk?

Does decaf hot tea count?

Does decaf coffee count?

Obviously water counts

   Well, even though I am the sucker who had a regain since WLS - (which I am down 4lbs by the way) - This morning I had an NSV and I haven't had this in a while.

My highest weight ever was 327 in my early 20's. I was 307 the day of surgery, 3

So Monday I woke up with some 'gas pain' in my chest. I took a tums and sipped water. Normally, it helps me burp and it goes away. Well not that day. I vomited the tums and water and immediately had what felt like a Gallbladder attack (when you have ga

Not sure who read my previous post of basically saying 'wah wah I gained a lot'. I did gain. I knew what was happening. Life had me wrapped up. Not using it as an excuse. I have no excuse. Its all me. I got this. (BTW, I am down 3lbs even while being s

Well, its been a super long time and much has happened in those months! All fantastic, except the 1 bad. GAIN.

I had VSG 12/2012. I started at 307 morning of surgery. I got to my lowest about a year or so ago, to 180! YES 180. Today? 218. WHAT.

I know nothing really about this AdvoCare shindig. I am going along with a friend to Philly on Saturday for some seminar. She is into it - which is great, she has 3 kids - youngest is almost 6 months old. She has come so far and been successful with it

Any good recommendations for stretch mark creams or oils? I had my bat wings cut off in December (and they are fabulous!) but I have some stretch marks - I know they don't ever go away but would like to see if they can be helped.

Thanks!

Just random - but are there any good recommendations for stretch mark creams/oils?
