My dad passed last Wednesday. We buried him Sunday. Needless to say I’m stressed out. We sat Shiva for two days. We are Reformed Jews, it was up to my mom. Usually it’s seven days. Food everywhere and I could not eat anything. Last night we had C

Despite what others say about me. Meaning coworkers and family. They all say I’m too thin. My doctor says I’m good. No more diabetes, high blood pressure, and now after another sleep study; no more sleep apnea. I’ve reached my goals. I feel great

All my blood work came back fine except for my Copper level. I take a multi (Natures Way Alive! Women's Energy) with 2mg Copper included but it's still low. So now I'm taking 2mg Copper supplement with a meal.

Could this just be a fluke? I'm

Hi everyone! I'm finally at my goal! Hard work and determination. I'm going to London UK this Wednesday and had a few questions. I may have caught a bug, or something I ate didn't agree with me. The bacon, I don't know. Can I take maybe half of an Imo

i tried a new food today. Backstory: back in the day, like the 1980s, I lived in Cleveland Hts, OH, and there was this little soul food place called Mama's Boy. They had the best wings and fresh cut fries, in a box, called "Fun in a Box". Now, they hav

Almost seven months out. Is chewing gum bad? I found the most natural versions at Whole Foods. It's called Spry. It's very dangerous if a dog eats this.

Yes, sugar free popsicles are crack on a stick!

Yesterday, my BF and I went to Cheesecake Factory for a late lunch. I had shrimp spring rolls (2) and small salad. It really tasted awful to me, manager took it off my bill. Contained two skimpy slivers of shrimp, veggies in the roll, not fried. Peanut

Bought a brand new pair of GAP jeans, at Clothes Mentor (resale shop), tags still attached. Size 10! Whoopeeeee!

Also bra shopping at Victoria's Secret, never in my wildest dreams I though anything could fit me there. I was measured and fitted.

I really need clothes. Everything is hanging off of me and I need to wear a belt. I went to WalMart today to see what I could find. Looking for a pair of jean capris. Picked out a 15 and 12. Juniors usually run smaller. Tried the 12 first, way too big

I love sugar free Jello. It filled me up pre RNY. I just had some today and experienced pain. That horrible feeling when you get when eating too fast or too much. Is this normal?

Has anyone taken probiotics? There are loads of choices. Some are time released and I don't know if that works with RNY. What should I be looking for in a probiotic? I am on a daily maintenance 50mg of doxy once a day not related to surgery. I know i

For the next few days I'm on thicker liquids. I managed to drink about five ounces of plain low fat Kefir this morning. Lunchtime I had a little bit of thinned low fat cottage blenderized with skim milk. Everything still tastes sweet, even the Kefir. I
