I'm not in the 290's anymore, but I started at 291 just a few months ago so I hope its okay that I've joined in on the thread. It's just that I know about that # all too well and it resonated with me
Of course it's ok for you to join! We'll just call you Hope (as in, you are giving us some hope) Congrats on your loss!!!

I just tried a Vegan Smart shake this morning. It's not bottled but you can make it in a shaker with cold water (and, e-hem, a shot of Cool Brew iced coffee concentrate if you're me) and it's fast and tasty. It was hard to find one that wasn't soy based (I have a hang up about soy) and they sponsor a few of my friends in their triathlete training so I'm happy to throw business their way. It's low in Points and the carbs are manageable (I'm diabetic) - I can even add PB2 and have a piece of fruit with it. So we shall see
