Yup, I'm going there. The gas is still a challenge for me, as I completely ignored the eating plan for the past 3.5 years. The gas situation was getting way out of hand and I finally decided to reign it in.

I try to get in a hour or more of exercise 3 to 5 times per week mostly for mental health and basic conditioning. I'm contemplating going to the gym now but it's late and I don't actually need to workout to keep thin. Now in my fourth year post WLS (DS

The Bill Murray movie shows a guys that relives each day with no consequences for what he does. After deliberating killing himself by electrocution, jumping off a building, speeding off cliff etc, he finally gives up being a jerk and becomes a decent g
