Mmmm, gummy bears...

My general doc said to me last year (or longer), you should consider adding a daily multi-vitamin, it can't hurt. I did ask if it wouldn't hurt, would it help because I HATE pills of any sort. Always have and always will - even pre-band. She said that she thought I could get benefit from it and whatever I didn't need my body would flush out. (Doc translation to normal person speak: You're getting old. Take a multi-vitamin. *sigh*)

I did think about it various times. Thought about chewables, but when I asked about the yummy kid kind she said she preferred me taking an adult one intended for woman. Grrrrrr. She said there are multiple liquid ones out there. Uh, have you tried those? They make me want to barf. And yes, I am a whiner, but reality is if I can't stand it or it's going to make me feel like I'm going to barf, I'm going to take it all of 3-5 times max.

The other week I was at Sam's and what did I spy? Gummy vitamins---bear shaped vitamin yumminess for kids. But wait! There next to them FOR ADULTS. Well, what made these different then other ones? Let's just say they are D-LISH!!!!!

And while some people may be deterred by the 50 cals per daily pack, not me. I have faithfully eaten my pack every day and it even gives me a candy fix as an added bonus, which works for me somehow. I might not be the best barometer for these in regard to the band since I don't have much if any fluid in my band (.2 whenever the heck I was last in), but I have zero problems with them.

All hail the gummy bear vitamin!

I take a gummy vitamin with my daughter every morning! I don't have any problems either with my band. But I will definitely look for the adult version next time I'm at BJ's. I like you, I can't take nasty vitamins. And definitely not chewables, I don't like the chalky taste.

I was religiously taking my chewable vitamins and calcium every night until one night my hubby said that they made my breath smell weird....doesn't make for much of a romantic moment!!! Anyway I have found that I have slowed down now. I need to get back into my routine. Maybe I will switch to morning.

Hi Lisa,
thanks for stopping by my blog. I tried to find your email, but I can't because blogspot tells me it's not available.

I am really interested in pursuing the LapBand. I've tried everything, and haven't been successful thus far. Some people have advised me against it saying that what will it do for me thatIi can't do for myself? But I haven't been able to so far, so what will change?

Anyway, I'm going to a seminar on the 17th. I'll try to ask as many questions as I can then.

yup, I saw these in WalMart the other day too and wanted to give them a try. So glad you found something that works for you!
