I think I've mentioned this before, but I go to a local WLS support group that's hosted by a healthcare organization that's not the one I had surgery with. The support group is open to all and I'm grateful to take advantage of it. The healthcare orga

Your PCP should be able to keep on top of ordering lab work for you.

The subject line sort of says it all.

I've been having acid issues and I've got a follow-up with my surgeon scheduled for Oct 16th. This seems like an on-going thing at this point for me and I know that the most plausible fix action is RNY.

I've been going to my local weight loss surgery support group for the last year(ish) and, tonight, I'm leading the group meeting and giving a presentation on "Cooking Post-Op." I'm typing up my notes now, because I'm good at procrastinating like that.<

My whole body is sore today from yesterday's run, but I'm still feeling super proud of myself for doing all seven miles, and doing it like it was no big deal. Hopefully tomorrow's run will be a piece of cake as a result, since it's "only" 3.1!

I saw that Quest had a new bar flavor, so I ordered a box to try it out. Maple Waffle - yum!

Happy weekend! I've got parkrun this morning - a free local 5k (it's a worldwide thing, super awesome) and then Lance and I are going to spend the day at the movies. We're seeing Mission Impossible, Equalizer, and Ant-Man.

QOTD: Do y

After injuring myself on Saturday, I think I'm going to try to run again today. Woo! I can't wait. I'm scheduled for 5 miles, so we'll see what happens. Then, later today, I'm meeting up with a friend from my WLS support group to give her some unus
