Having been around OH since 2008 I have seen the demise of not just this board but several of them to oblivion. FB did not help either. OH used to have several conventions a year and for several of those one of the conventions was in Texas, Dallas or Houston. Those were educational and some great socializing.
FWI: I/we are 60 miles or so S/SE of Dallas.
I live outside Austin in the Hill Country. We should meet up!

I'm back and hopefully we can resurrect the Texas forum. I'm in Houston and back on the journey again. I had the lap band in 2008 and lost about 40 lbs but it just didn't work for me....lots of complications. After a couple of years of filling and unfilling, I did not like the band. I finally had it removed when I had to have gall bladder surgery in 2015. Fast forward to today, I gained the 40 back plus 13 more lbs. I've been considering the sleeve but I think I will actually "try" eating healthier and actually "do" some exercising. At my age (50), my goal is to loose 51 lbs by my July 15th bday (as a present to me).
I was on the forum before and found lots of positve people that are still in the struggle to take control of their life and their health. Best wishes and good luck to you all.

Wow what does someone have to do to motivate people to post. Back forever ago all these forums used to be so active. Ok so I'm here let's get to posting. I'm outside of Houston looking for other to get to know support groups etc. Come one people let's get this thing moving. Put the kettle bells down push away from the protein shakes and communicate!!
