(Okay, admit it, you read the topic and thought, "But Gwen, you never shut up!")

I need advice.

At my local farmers market there is a vendor. I like her well enough and I've enjoyed buying the things she makes over the years. I'm a

I feel ridiculous asking this question, like it's some key facet of existence I've managed to remain ignorant of.

How the heck do you deal with leg hair when you can't do it yourself?

My leg hair has gotten long and due to my skin t

Hey all. I made a post to the plastics forum to ask questions about medial thigh lift. If you have experience with this, would you mind heading over there and given me some input? THANK YOU!

Okay people... please talk to me about the thigh lift. It's funny - my next surgery us the upper body lift and breast lift and I'm not worried about it at all. But for some reason I'm getting fearful of my thigh lift which isn't even until November!

I figured that this deserved its own post instead of being buried in the daily meal thread.

This morning I weighed myself. I try to do this first thing in the morning after using the bathroom and before I shower, eat, drink, or clothe myself.

I should have asked my surgeon but I forgot since he said my belly button was looking the way it should.

So.... how long before my belly button stops looking gross? My instructions are to clean it, bacitracin it twice a day and I loosely tape

I’m now nine days post-op and I think my brain is finally functional again. I’ve been weaning myself off my painkillers and the benefits are real, yo. I’m not sure if I over medicated for fear of pain getting away from me or if I medicated approp

Tomorrow is my big day. Today I'm going to see Wonder Woman! Then, after dinner, I'll be heading to a hotel close to the hospital I'll be in. I'm doing liquids today to make sure that my stomach/bowels will be happy post-op. And yogurt for antibiot

I'm having a lower body lift and brachioplasty on Monday.

What help can I expect to need? I plan to spend most of my time in one of those anti gravity lawn chairs. Will I need help standing up? What is the best way for a person to help me

Woke up feeling great! Then I started talking and started coughing :P But I feel great otherwise! Yay!

I'm hoping to finally get to the farmers market this morning to say hi to my friends there. I can't really buy anything since I'm not p

I'm feeling MUCH better today. Yay rah! Tomorrow I'll feel even better - can't wait!

Today is my last chance for fitness classes until July 28th, so I'm planning on going at least to Tai Chi. I'll evaluate whether I feel up to staying for

I ended up doing my last meal yesterday as a yogurt instead of a protein shake. I realized that I'm going to need to eat yogurt post-op due to the antibiotic, so I needed to make sure I found a variety that I could eat and that I like. I opted for th

Prior to VSG I'd seen a lot of posts about what to take to the hospital, so I never needed to ask. But I haven't seen information about this for plastic surgery!

I was thinking I'd just take:

chapstick
iPhone

Good morning! It's a rainy Wednesday here. I'm getting ready to head off to fitness classes and then I get to read for the rest of the day! Well, read and cook dinner and put away laundry. But mainly I'll be reading.

I slept horribly last night due to pain from a weird head thing so I ended up opting not to run this morning. I'll do some yoga after I post this.

Today should be a good day - but busy considering I'm on vacation! I've got a lunch date and
