I was very thin the first 21 years of my life. I simply ate my way to 287. I work hard to keep the weight off but wonder if it is easier for me because I wasn't an obese child?

My surgeon is not the one who gave me my eating plan. He was just my surgeon but one thing he said was, never,ever chew gum. If you accidentally swallow you will see me again. I don't chew gum because in nurses trading my instructor pulled aside and as

  • I see a lot of posts about 'snacks' reminds me of when I was on a diet. All I could think about was 'what and how much can I eat on this 1000 calorie diet. My mind was obsessed about when to eat,what to eat. It will be 14 years in Sept since I h

I wish there was a nice way to tell someone they are eating too much and bad choices ? I see people eating things early post op that I wouldn't eat 13 years post op. Or do I just shut up?

I live in a cabin near the Mississippi River in the summer and have a grill and stove top but no oven. I had never heard of an air fryer until a post here yesturday, I really miss an oven, would this be something worthwhile ?

I was researching this as it's painful and have tried everything over the counter. One article was lack of vitamin D. Any other long term vets have this?

I live in a Texas retirement community in the winter. It's so sad what is going on here. I was activity director for the past 3 years but got burned out this year. We have a club house with tables and folding chairs. They are now planning a big BBQ to
