Howdy All,

Been a bit absent other than a few posts here and there. Down another two pounds and although my weight loss seems to be slowing now, I am still down another 6 lbs from last months totals. Slow but steady which suits me just fine.

1/day ASA's (Not good for us now)

Fenofibrate - Taken off back in Oct 2016 when diet improved.

Xenical - So happy that one is gone

Ramipril -

Hi all,

I am now 6 weeks post op and feeling fine. Yesterday I had my 6 week followup and 1st Post Op Class where we discussed Nutritian and Behaviors after Surgery. It was nice to sit with other folks that were more or less at the same stag

So now that I am 5 weeks post op, all is well except for the two primary incision sites. Somehow they got infected on me and because of that I made a quick trip to see the Nurse Practitioner yesterday morning to check it out. They have been leaking

Hi all, today was a good day in terms of tooting and a couple of almost undetectable BMs. Lol. By that I mean very small but hey..its progress. I went to Cabella's Ottawa for my day walk today and then walked the block this evening with my Wife and our

Was asked the question but thought I would post on the main forum since my predecessors did the same, I found it really helped me prepare for the days after surgery. Just remember out bodies all act differently.

Hi All, 

Just a little update on my journey.  I am 3 days into the Optifast Diet now, have to admit it's going better than I thought.  This stuff really does suppress my hunger.   I purchased Vanilla only because I was lucky enough to try one b

Hi All,

Couldn't find a specific place to say hello with my first post so I apologize if I landed in the wrong forum.  Being it's an Ontario forum I thought this was the place.  Mods feel free to move it if there is a "new Members" area.
