So I'm several years out from VSG. I lost a lot but never met my true goal; however I'm happy. I'm now having significant issues with reflux and facing the possibility of needing surgical intervention which I've been advised would be revision to RnY. Has anyone gone through this?? Will I lose more?? How much different will my life change??

Except for every once in awhile, I don't like to cook either! Where I live (out in the sticks) we don't have many grocery store options and the ones we do have a lot of locally "staple" prepackaged meals and almost none that I can find that I like. I know I could find somethings at a Trader Joes or Whole Foods Market but we don't have any close by. They are hours away. I used to live close to both of those stores and loved them. It's great that you have been able to make it all work for you without having to cook or plan!

Great idea! Maybe I can drag my sister or brother with me. I might try to order online and pick up the groceries. I just learned there is a store locally that does online ordering but it's a little ways away. I am pretty picky when to comes to selecting my meats and produce so not sure if I could order online all the time.

Hi Janet. I have not had weight loss surgery yet. It is my goal to make that happen this year-the sooner the better. You are right. I know that I need to change my habits, without a doubt. For meal planning, I am going to try that Paprika app recommended by White Dove. (If I can get someone to help me start it up!)

What an encouraging and insightful post! (Ive been sick for bit and had a death in the family so apologies for my delay in responding.) I very much appreciate all of your tips. I have not had the surgery yet and have set some personal goals for myself. I am very committed to changing my life this year and I am taking in all I can and learning from you and others who post on the message boards.I am very thankful for the support!

I just looked the Paprika app up. I would definitely have to get someone to help me set that up as I am not real great with adding app's and stuff like that. Computer challenged! This sounds like another good solution. I agree, walking into the grocery store without a plan is a mess! Thanks for the tip.

I just found out there is one grocery store locally that does let you order online and pick it up. It is a little further away but would save me money and from temptation. I also like your idea of teaming up wth someone and doing each others shopping but I really don't know anyone around here too well.
Oh my, that sounds delicious. Will definitely try it.
My chia seeds might be a little old; I'll try a new bag and see if that helps.
