Well, these unending complications are frustrating...I am still on the blood thinners(Warfarin) and should be for the next 6 months. I have to get blood tests done once a week and I just got a list from my PCP that should have come from the Surgeon's office when he prescribed the blood thinners.... The list is all types of food high in Vitamin K that I need to stay away from eating since they cause the blood thinners to not work as well.... Maybe this is why she can't get me therapeutic( INR between 2-3) and I am still so at risk for more blood clots. It is hard not to get FED UP. But I love the feeling that the sleeve gives me, I feel Normal, for lack of a better word. I feel like I am not a food addict, but I can eat what I want... just small amounts. I don't carve sugar anymore... which is way weird for me to get used to. I hope it continues... and I hope I keep losing weight and feeling healthier... each day. Fingers Crossed!

Well, as I mentioned before I am not loving sweet anymore...so I don't really want my greek yogurts as much. I found and tried these Greek yogurt dips and I love them. I eat them with carrots or celery, or with Special K Cracker chips as a treat. The protein level is high and the calories are low. Most of the protein products are sweet, my shakes, my Greek yogurts, etc. It is nice to find something savory for a change. The dip is available in French Onion, Vegetable and Herb, Cucumber Dill, and Roasted Red Pepper.
