Just an update from my September 2016 post.  

I have a hiatal hernia and GERD.  I've gained 11 pounds since my January 2016 visit to the surgeon.   Nutritionist gave me a new GERD meal plan which eliminates coffee (both caffeinated and decaf).

A little bio info: I am female, 5'6", 47 years of age with a high weight of 275 lbs.  This morning, I weighed in at 171 lbs and I have been taking in 1600-1700 calories daily.  My goal weight is 160 lbs. and I had the DEXA scan to see if I am on point

As a birthday present to myself, I am having a DEXA scan on Monday.  I want to know my body's composition and find my ideal weight range.

Right now, I am in maintenance.  My body seems to like 165-170 pounds.  My original goal is 160 pounds so
