I've been wearing size 20W stretch leggings from Walmart. They were feeling a bit big, so I went looking for 18s. Well, they don't have them, only 16/18. I went ahead and bought them, figuring they would definitely be too small but I will get into t

I hope nobody minds I started this today. I'm up particularly early, so thought I'd add my 2 cents before work today! Supposed to hit 93F today here in mid-Missouri...and so summer is officially here! A new batch of campers arrived yesterday, so ano

I just experienced the most surreal thing last night. I was at a birthday celebration dinner with 10 other people. For the first time in my adult life, I was the SMALLEST person over 18 at the table! Someone else posted recently about looking to see

OMG! I made it...I'm still in shock 3 hours later. As of this morning two huge milestones: Onederland for the first time in 35 years, and 100 pounds lost since surgery. I swear I stood in the shower and cried. I am so happy I had this surgery. Th

I am getting so antsy! I'm only 5 pounds away from 2 big milestones--losing 100 pounds since surgery, AND finally making it to Onederland (199 lbs). I'm also 30 pounds away from my initial goal. I'm happy with my progress, but I swear it seems these

Yesterday was such a great day! I've posted in the VSG menu thread that I was having a big reveal of my weight loss to my extended family that was unplanned, due to us coming together yesterday for my great-uncle's funeral. Aside from the sad reason

Today I had my 6-month follow up appointment with my surgeon. I really tried to get to 90 lbs lost before seeing him, but it wasn't meant to be. However, he was ecstatic with my progress and everything I have been doing. I wasn't sure how receptive

My whole life I have been a coffee fiend. I loved coffee. I lived for coffee. Everyone in my life knew to stay away until I'd had my coffee. Then...dun dun dun...VSG surgery, and my taste buds went kaflooey!

Not for savory things, just swee

It seems like every week or so, I have a day where I just don't feel like eating. (I know, shock, I never thought I'd see the day either lol.)

My question: Is it that awful if I just don't eat that day? It's probably only 1-3 days a month, b

Went out to dinner tonight with my sister and BIL, and my sister's BFF, her daughter and mother. I hadn't seen the mother in about 30 years. Anyway, at some point early on I made a comment about how cool it was that all 3 of us fitting on one side of

Today it's been 5 months since my surgery, and I'm so mad at myself right now. I went to get my normal Low Carb Thickburger at Hardee's for lunch and dinner. I had a 2 for $5 coupon for the regular burgers so I just ordered them without buns. Got ho
