Hey all! Ive been MIA, because school is crazy. I'm in a full time internship and in 17 credits of classes. It's stressful, but worth it. For those of you who remember a bit of my story, you know I dropped out after getting a 0.0 GPA one semester. Just

Has anyone tried the new Equate Protein shakes? 160 cal, 30 grams of protein, $2 cheaper than premier.

I want to try them, but I have a strange emotional loyalty to premier. But if they taste the same...

Brrr. Like many, I have turned into a permanent snowman. From my fingers to my toes, I am always always frozen. To the point that it's honestly uncomfortable.

Anyway, I'm looking for some good tips to stay warm. Right now the only things get

So my loss for the past few months average around 10 pounds per month. This month however I lost a massive 17 pounds (so far). I'm so happy about that bc I'm officially at a "healthy" BMI.

but is that much of a loss normal this far out? I'm so

Hey all, hope your holiday season has been lovely.

So the past few days I've been very burp-y. I've also had very mild nausea and discomfort while drinking. Does this sound like the start of an ulcer? Nothing? Maybe something?

Hey all,

As a heads up: this is going to be about poop.

So when I go to the bathroom most of the time it's just a normal experience. But, every once in a while it is most definitly not.

While going, typically after a short peri

Hello All,

Before surgery, I would fast one day a week for religious reasons. I'm wondering if it would be okay to incorporate that back into my life. Would it be alright, do you think, if I do it on a day where I limit my activity and increase

Hooray! My birthday was Monday and I was torn between getting an instant pot or a nice food processor as my gift. Woke up Monday morning to see Amazon having a one day 30% off sale for the instant pot. So it was decided! It just arrived so I'm excited

Hey everyone!

Hey All,

Just wondering what opinions y'all have on protein shakes? I've seen several people here say that their surgeon wanted them off them asap.

My surgeon's staff actually recommends a protein shake daily (or almost daily) for the

Hey all. Lately I've been getting fairly light headed when ever I stand up. I don't see black or anything, but my vision blurs and I feel a bit like I'm floating and spinning at the same time. It passed fairly quickly, so not super annoying. Does this

As of today not only have I lost a whopping 100 pounds, I also hit "one"derland. My guess is that it will jump back into the low 200's at points throughout the week, but I saw the number so I'm counting it!

I now have 50lbs for my doctors goal
