Hey everyone.  After being AWOL for a while, I got back on here about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and man am I glad that I did.  My weight was creeping back up, and I knew I needed to get back on track.  I've just about lost the extra weight that had crept back o

I'm very happy to say that I've had a positive influence on two people who are now going to get WLS because of me.

One is a guy I work with that I've known for a long time.  He's obviously seen my journey, and how successful I've been.  We've t

Hi everyone.  It's been a while since I posted, and I've gotten off the wagon.  Time to make some changes before things get too bad.

Back in April, I hit my low weight of 190, and I stayed in the low 190's for the next three months.  But in Jul

I had my TT on July 11th, and everything has went really well.  My drains came out after less than two weeks, and since then, I've accumulated some fluid.  The last time I saw my surgeon, he tapped on me for a while, saw the ripples, and told me that I

After my RNY, I received a card that I was supposed to show at restaurants, which explained that I had weight loss surgery, a much lower volume, and to request that they let me order off of the kid's menu.  I carried it for a while, but even when I was

Hey everyone.  Ever since my surgery, I've been taking the generic Prilosec capsule.  This last time that I got my refills, the pharmacy filled it with Prilosec OTC tablets instead.  The box says delayed release, so it sent up red flags.

This morning, I weighed in at 189.1!  This is my new low point after surgery, and honestly, I don't want to lose anymore.  Fortunately, my wife and daughter are preparing me a Father's Day feast for tomorrow (with my guidance and blessing, of course),

Hey everyone.  I had my gall bladder removed on April 1st, and since then, I've occasionally had some stomach issues.  What happens is that I get this this strong pain across my stomach, kind of like a major cramp.  It goes all the way across my abs.

Last night, we took our daughter to Comerica Park to see the Detroit Tigers.  What's a ballgame without snacks, right?  Well, I was quite surprised to see that they offered Pork Rind Nachos!  Basically pork rinds covered with cheese, sour cream, green

Today marks my 18 month surgiversary. It still ranks as one of the best decisions I ever made. My only regret is that I waited so long to do it.

I'm almost 18 months out, and having my surgery was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I am fortunate that I had no complications, and by following my instructions, I surpassed my surgeon's expectations.  In the last year and a half, I

I just got back from having my gallbladder out, and everything went perfectly.  My doctor, who also did my RNY, said that it was definitely inflamed, and that I had been through some attacks.  I hadn't had a major attack from it, but it looks lit it wo

I visited a plastic surgeon a couple of weeks ago, and I got the call that I was approved by my insurance.  I was hoping that the 360 degree lift (not sure of the actual name) would be approved, but insurance said that would be cosmetic.  Instead, they

Hi everyone,

I have another question about gallbladder surgery.  I was rescheduled to April 1st.  My surgeon said I'd need to recover for a long weekend, and then I'd be fine.  Which I'm sure will be true for "normal" activity, but I am plannin

So on my regular labs, I got a call that said my liver enzymes were high and I had to go and see my family doctor to make sure it's not liver disease.  They were able to "squeeze me in" 3 weeks later, and when I saw her, she rolled her eyes and said, "
