Hi Gwen, I hope you are healing well, relaxing as much as possible, and taking your meds for comfort.

Every time I watch it now, I spend a lot of time talking to, and/or screaming at the TV. The excuses, the whining, the crying, and the excuses are just too, too much.

I know that these are people who are super morbidly obese, and that they g

I did it!  Ten months after my surgery I made it to my goal weight and couldn't be more excited!  Along with that excitement comes fear and trepidation about going on maintenance. Maintenance is more difficult than losing

Hello VSG friends!  Last night, my husband and I were walking home from dinner, when I miss the curb with my right toe and slammed my head into the concrete on the sidewalk.  Hubby called the paramedics and they came with

My hubby and I went to the mall tonight to find outfits for a fund raiser we're going to tomorrow night.  While I was trying on dresses and pants, I was amazed at the difference in sizes from one maker to another.  Everyt

Went in today for my 7 month appointment and everything went really, really well.  My weight was 147.5, 2.5 pounds under my doctor's goal for me, but 12.5 pounds from my goal. He was very happy with my lab work also.  My cholesterol is way down, from a

I've been watching the new show Skin Tight since the beginning, and it's making me so mad that the one PS keeps saying that the best way to lose weight is through diet and exercise.  He says that they do so much better, w

My little dog and I went for a long walk today, and it felt so good to walk right on by the bench I used to sit on while waiting for my back pain to go away.  Then, I would either find another bench or find a tree to lea

Today was a good day for my eating and my exercise, so I thought I would post about it.

Yesterday was my 4 month check up with my VSG surgeon.  I got to the office at 9:55, 5 minutes before my appointment time and signed in.  The office was fairly full, but most of the people were called in pretty quickly. I was the only one waiting till

This is a momentous day for me! I am no longer OBESE, I'm overweight! I don't even remember the last time I was just overweight. It must have been when my son was born 34 years ago. I'm wearing a size 14: something els

I'm 10 weeks out now, and am having my first "head hunger" day. I keep looking in the refrigerator, even though I'm not at all hungry, and it's scaring me. Maybe I need to get moving, even though I've already walked 4 miles today at Disneyland. This

Now that it's been two months since surgery, I was so looking forward to starting the next phase of my diet. The soft food phase was getting monotonous, and I was ready to add so much more. My surgeon's office no longer has a nutritionist. She left

Before my surgery, my blood pressure was on the high end of normal, even with blood pressure meds. It was usually about 140/85. I'm now 2 months post-op from VSG, and with my BP gradually going down, I went to the doctor's office to have it checked.

Today is the day that I have had it with my surgeon's office. I'm 9 weeks post op, and should be starting on the next phase of my diet. My husband and I were looking forward to a meeting with the nutritionist today to explain what comes next. We had

Only 4.9 pounds to go before I'm no longer obese, just overweight.  I honestly can't remember the last time I was this this weight or lower.  My kids much have been in elementary school, and they are now 36 and 33.

This is an exciting time!

I'm in the last two weeks of my soft protein stage, and have been waking up in the morning with leg cramps.  My nutritionist told me to drink coconut water to help prevent them, but have no idea

I decided to try on some clothes tonight, to see if they still fit 4 weeks after surgery.  The jeans that I wore only 6 weeks ago are so big that I can get them on and off with unbuttoning or unzipping them.  It's so exciting to see how fast this new t

I'm 24 days out from surgery and saw my PCP today for an ear problem.  She took my blood pressure and said that I may need to go off my blood pressure medication very soon.  I've been on this same medication for over 20 years, and thought it would be a
