Ok.....no hiding from the truth.......in the "old days," if I cheated (myself) and went off my eating plan, I didn't tell anyone and I fooled myself into thinking that if I didn't say it, it didn't happen.....NO MORE!!!

I ate potato chips and a

I got my lazy self back to the gym 5 weeks ago and have been very diligent about getting there 3 or 4 times a week and spending at least an hour....mixing up cardio and resistance.....coming home tired but feeling good about myself. I know that putting

Once a month I treat myself to a massage....my not so guilty pleasure. So, tonight as I was laying there on the table, I realized that I could feel my ribs AND my hip bones............woo hoo......and when I got home and headed for the shower, I also r

Has anyone else experienced this? I have a really nasty cold (glad I got the flu shot in November or else I think this would be worse) and have been sneezing and blowing my nose til the poor thing is ready to fall off. I've been careful to get in extra

Well....I finally got myself to the gym!!! Did the treadmill because I want to work up to other machines "slowly"......actually, just didn't want to overdo things my first time out. I did 40 minutes at 2.8 miles (keep in

Hi All.....

I was at a party on Saturday and someone I hadn't seen in a few months came over and gushed about how good I'm looking (as you all can imagine....that felt good!) and she asked me if I've been having fun shopping for new clothes. I

It's going to be a busy weekend for all of us and I just want to take this opportunity to wish all of my OH family the best of everything for the holidays and the coming year.

All of you are my lifeline and have helped me through some interesti

Every year I make a ton of chocolate candies for friends and relatives and making sure I have something as an impromptu gift. I like to give packages to the people who I do business with and to people who do business with me. Generally, I make around 1

It's my new favorite "snack." I met with my nutritionist today and we discussed beef jerky....she's in favor of it. I never liked it before, but now all of a sudden it's my fave. I've been making my own because that way I know exactly what's in it and

That would never have happened pre-VSG. I had an appointment this morning and got halfway there when I realized that I hadn't eaten anything. Sometimes I forget lunch too because I'm just not hungry or even still full from breakfast.

Good thing

I have a temperamental knee and walking any great distance is sometimes difficult. I'm not a gym person even though I keep saying I'll go, I always find some reason not to do so.

A few weeks ago I rearranged my closet into sections - what fits now, what will fit in 5-10 pounds and what will fit down the road.

I'm getting crazed.....my doctor assures me that this will only last a few weeks longer, but it doesn't seem to be slowing down........I've upped my biotin, increased my protein and cut down the times I brush my hair in a day, yet I'm still shedding at

Six weeks ago I put on a pair of capri pants that I haven't worn in years.....got them on, but could barely breathe.....I stuck it out and wore them anyway because even though they were tight they eased up a bit after a while.....but the waist was stil

Does anyone take it as a supplement? Any results? Any bad reviews? I'm just curious.

I'm losing slowly.....NOT complaining and not trying to lose 10 pounds a week, but I was wondering if that could speed things up just a little.
