It's been around for almost a year. It's a spin off forum from lapbandtalk.com

I'm an active member there as well. It's easier to navigate than OH, and it was a lifesaver for me through my recovery.

Yeah, I was wondering if anyone else here used it and if it was as good at providing information as this website is. Nobody ever recommends visiting it so I was unsure. Thanks so much!

I'm there also with the same username.
It doesn't seem to be quite as active as this site but there are great people and posts there too.
Tiffykins is one of my favs!

I am over there as well. Its a nice site, easy to get around. You can't have too much information and support, and what you can't find in one place the other usually has.

I like how when you post there, it bumps the thread to the top.

you can do that here too, you have to set you individual preference though, so just because you have it set to show the most recently replied to-- it might not do that on other people's browsers.

To set it to bump the most recently replied to thread up to the top, click on the My OH tab and along the side where the links are, go to the very bottom where it says "settings" and click it. Then you should be taken to a page about your profile settings and you'll see a tab that says "message board". Click that, and then you can edit your signature and just below that is the section you want: "Default View Preference". Just click the bubble next to "topics with most recent posts first" and TADA!

the sign in area is at the very top- in the right hand corner. Actually, it's the Login in area but there's a link there that says "sign up"

I'm also on there and it is a lot easier to navigate and I like how things are posted by topics..I wish they would do that here under each surgical forum.

Thanks for posting...I just checked out their recipe thread and they had good information. One woman only cooks with farm fed bison...and she posted to links to obtain the bison. Interesting...lower  in fat....I will check that out.

thanks
