Hi folks! I am 16.5 months post-RNY and have done really well with getting in my cardio (mostly walking and swimming) 5-6 days per week since surgery. In February of this year I had to have an abdominal hysterectomy and in May I had PS (TT, BL), both o

Hi folks!

I usually drink Syntrax Nectar protein powder shakes (Cappuccino, Roadside Lemonade, Fuzzy Navel, Ice Tea) and RTD vanilla Premier Protein shakes on the go. I need to replenish my stash of unflavored protein powder and the Syntrax Nec

I am 4 weeks out from an abdominoplasty and this was my first week back working in the office. That adds about an hour of commuting on either end and lots more walking just to get anywhere in our large building. I am trying to keep my walking and lifti

I keep trying different types of jerky to take as snacks when I am out and don't want to depend on finding something on plan. I've found that alot of them have significant amounts of added sugar and are very high in sodium. That said, I like that they

Hi folks,

I had an extended abdominoplasty and extended mastopexy on May 18 and overall I am healing well. My incisions look great, except my belly button is still a bit crusty and the bottom of the abdominal incision is somewhat scabby. Other

Just thought I'd start us out today, weekenders! It is rainy and almost cool here, but I've been up, had my coffee and run a few errands already. Nothing really on the agenda other than maybe going through some drawers and packing up the last of the co

Hi folks,

I am 8 days postop from an extended mastopexy and extended abdominoplasty and am healing well. The PS put in 4 drains, L & R breast and L & R abdomen. The L breast came out at 3 days and the R breast and ab at 6 days. He wants to leav

Writing from my new home, my power-lift recliner. It certainly has been easier to get in and out of by myself without twisting my abs. I may move back to the bed this weekend but it has been a real key to easing my home recovery!

I had an exten

I didn't get much sleep last night with all the noise and nurse checks but I feel pretty well considering I am just one day out. I don't have too much pain as long as I am still but getting up and down really hurts. I got my catheter out early this mor

Today was my surgery and things went well. I am going for my first walk in a few minutes and I'll check with more details in the morning.

Morning folks! My PS is scheduled for this Friday and I am starting to feel anxious about it. I am having an extended mastopexy and extended abdominoplasty done with Douglas Forman, and I trust his skills, so that isn't what I am nervous about. What I

I had a RNY 2/28/17 and have lost more than half of my body weight, So much has changed for me, my health and fitness are better than they've been in 30 years, and I feel like I've been given a new life! I've spent almost all of my adult life being MO/
