I used to cook for 20 people (there were/are only 3 of us). And I used to eat for 15 of those imaginary people. So leftovers were not too much of a problem. I could snack on them between meals so they disappeared quickly.

However, now I cannot

I've been SSMO for the last 10 years. Although I still worked full time, I couldn't walk (also due to an illness, but my weight was a big part of the reason). My husband, unfortunately, was/is an enabler. And he loves me more than anything. As much as

Merry Christmas all! Today I wish everyone a happy day. Yesterday, I grazed for the first time since July. I logged this morning what I could remember. (I owned it) and realized that even though it was way over the top, it ws still far less than I coul

Well, I made it through the parts and am intact physically and mentally.

Some parts were great and some parts were terrible and some parts were just weird.

For those of you that are familiar with the situation, you may want to skip the

First (The HAPPY one): I had a MAJOR NSV today. My DH and I went shopping today, took the dog to be groomed and dropped off all the C

As most of you know, I've been stuck for the better part of the last 3 weeks in a stall. Due to everyone on OH sharing that plateaus happen and that they are inevitable, I was able to take it in stride and instead of feeling like giving up and "what's

Happy happy Friday everyone! Well… the scale finally moved again this morning. 401! It was like my body was saying… nope… uh uh, not going below 400… not gonna happen. But this morning, I got on the scale and voila! I was down 2 pounds. My goal

I've done some research, but would like personal experiences and opinions. My carb intake bounces between 20 and 45 for the day. I'm concerned that I'm bouncing myself in and out Ketosis. I have read that below 30 per day is the sweet spot, but some da

Good morning VSG'ers. Our regulars are probably sleeping in so I'll get us started for today.

I got a reprieve on the Sunday Crab boil. We have postponed until Monday, so today is more cleaning, dusting, vacuuming and organizing. It’s embarra

I have always been a big fan of bacon. A true believer in that bacon makes everything better. (not a surprise how I got where I was, eh?) Tonight I cooked some bacon to use a slice in a recipe and let the family have BLT's. I was gonna snag a tiny litt

Hello all,

I had my VSG last Friday and don't see my NUT until Friday, but I wanted an answer today and Google wasn't offering up an answer.

Hello all,

I go for my VSG tomorrow morning. It occurred to me that I might have a problem getting in and out of my waterbed. What do you veterans think? Getting in won't be a problem, but I roll out on my stomach getting out. Am I going to be
