Never thought I'd say this, but I have grown to hate shopping.  I have had to buy a few things because nothing fits anymore.  Am pretty much out of the plus size stores now and have no clue of where to shop and what will fit me well.  Have to try every

I am 4 1/2 months out of being sleeved and down 80lbs.

So I just got kind of a stern email from the nurse at TWH post follow up ... apparently the dieticians are not happy with people using Patch vitamins.  This is what they said.  

 

"Patch vitamins were not recommended by our team.

Pulled a muscle in my back. Seeing the chiropractor is helping and he says 4 more treatments I should be back to normal. Tylenol is doing nada for the pain ... so missing my ibuprofen! Using ice packs constantly.

Anyone in the Toronto area have recommendations for good gyms or personal trainers?

I have heard horror stories about trainers who don't understand bariatric surgery/diets and who give people a

So hopefully this isn't TMI but here goes ... had a regular BM last night, nothing exceptional. About an hour later, terrible diarrhea. Didn't feel overly full or sick or nauseous, it was just urgent. Wondering if I had too much soup or to eat/drink in

Nervous and excited and tired out.

Down 21lbs on Optifast. Thought I'd treat myself to a maid service to get the place spick and span before the hospital and they didn't show. So I did a quick tidy and cleaned the bathroom and will change out t
