I'm not getting any work done!!  I check all my applicable forums several times a day and have now noticed I comment A LOT!!  But the good thing is that I can't eat and be on the computer at the same time and all these tips, posts and suggestions are keeping me honest!!  Finally drinking all my water and switched to a high protein diet!!

 

So maybe this is finally a healthy addiction???  Except for the messy house!

I'm pretty much addicted to them as well!  But that's not a bad thing - it keeps me focused on my weight, weight loss, and health!

Addicted here as well!  It's on in the background all day while I "work".

Addicted.  I check them throughout out the day... and comment on anything interesting.  Better than eating, I say...

I'm raising my hand! 

I, too, spend a good amount of time reading forums, replying where I can.  OH is such an amazing place for support, ideas, information, etc. 

Today marks one week and a day since I saw my surgeon and discussed VSG.  Since then, I've been logging all my food in a notebook, saw the Nurse Navigator (she supplied me with a very cool WLS binder), attended a support group meeting and had my first therapist appointment. 

As for the scale, I've lost 9 pounds since the Dr. weighed me last Wednesday.  My body WANTS to lose weight, it's my head that says "let her eat cake!"  I'm working on that with my therapist.  That crazy b***ch that lives in my head who wants to eat bread and cake needs to chill out!

Congratulations on the weight loss! I think being on here before your surgery is a great key to being successful!

Unfortunately, that crazy ***** will be with you after surgery as well.... wish they could yank her out when they did the surgery as well!

I've been on daily since before surgery and I'm almost two years out... Sometimes the boards are too quiet ;) I don't post a lot, but I love reading all the questions and updates.

Guilty as charged... 

I used to try and go read other boards because this one is sometimes too quiet... I'm glad to see more posts, so I have more to read... the other boards are harder to navigate than this one imho.
