Most of you who are active these days may not recognize me. I haven't been on for a long time because of some wicked long hours at work and I do skate in the morning before work.

I am 5 years out today and I will tell all of you who are pre-op

I was thinking of everyone tonight and thought I'd drop in to say hi. I've been working some wicked long hours and training early in the morning before work.

I'm looking for a new job that doesn't suck the life out of me. If I find one, I'll be

I know I haven't been on very much. Truthfully, I have been settling into our new home, another new job (long story, but a good thing), and a whole lot of skate training.

But, four years ago today, I walked into a hospital in San Bernardino,

I know I just responded to a post with this info, but thought I'd share for anyone out there looking for a little recipe inspiration. It is a list I created when DH & I were co-leading the support group in CA. Now we need to find one near our new home.

I have noticed a few threads with people asking for recipe ideas. I created this list back when Mike B (DH) & I co-led our support group back in CA. I will copy it below just as I handed it out. Sometimes you will need to make modifications, but you ca

Several months ago, an OH staff member emailed my husband and me and asked if we would write an article about being a married couple who both have had WLS. She saved the article for now because of Valentine's day. I received an email this morning to le

This may have already been posted and it is possible that I missed it. Costco has $5.00 off of premier protein, a cookies & cream powder (I haven't tried it), and several vitamins on sale through the 24th.

Well, my third year anniversary came and went without a post. There was a good reason, I was moving into our new home that weekend. The date was 9/13, three years, no regrets.

So, now that I have a spare moment, here is an update. I am dealing

Well, since I signed in to post and didn't see one, I thought I'd get it started. Warning, it may take me a while to respond, if notifications work.

After a whole lot of searching, and one house we had to back out of due to inspection issues, it looks like we found something. The kitchen is amazing, and I am looking forward to being able to cook like I normally do again. Eating properly has been a

I usually post on the VSG forum, but I need a little help.  DH (Mike B) and I are further out and at goal, and we want to keep it that way. We have participated in, and co-led (for the past year) a support group since we were pre-op. Now, we are in Aur

Mike B and I are headed to Tahoe (about 8 hours away) for a competition I am skating in. I have three programs to skate. One that I am most looking forward to is a new one that has a football theme. Those who have read my posts during football season k

Hi Everyone, Mike B and I have been MIA for a while, but for a good reason. We have spent the last couple of months downsizing our stuff and getting our home ready for sale. We are planning on moving to Colorado this summer if we can sell our house, fi
