Hi Roz, hope all is well with you!

There are so many boards to post to so I think that is why you don't see much going on here. Even the main boards have been pretty quiet lately.

People just get busy and need to prioritize their time.

I hope that you are staying the course and continue to be successful.

Over 100 lbs lost! and 13 lbs below goal weight!

Topic: Hi Lightweights!!!!!

I'm so sad! Only a couple posts since I stopped in a few months ago. I completely understand though. I stopped posting because there were only a few responded.

The LW Board was what kept be going when I was in the losing stage. I couldn't have done it if I hadn't of posted every day.

There were so many posters back then who supported me and gave me advice along the way. I'm still friends on FB with some of them.


God is walking with me every step of the way. Because of HIM this is possible!!

You have probably learned what protein coffee is by now. I received a message yesterday that someone was asking a question. I quit posting here because i wasn't getting any responses.

Protein coffee is a cup of coffee with protein powder added. You must mix the protein powder with a liquid such as water, creamer, half & half, milk, etc. If you add the powder to the hot liquid, it will clump. You can also make iced coffee.

Hope this helps.

The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.

Hey Jeff,

Are you local to St Louis? I live in South City and I'm two years out of my DS. Welcome back to the boards and I hope you continue to improve from your stokes.

Dear Friends,
I looked up this site again after much time because I had been in and out of the hospital from a series of strokes for the past year and a half. My WLS numbers still look fine and I only have a slight speech problem and some tics. You LW's are great people and I hope to hear from you. Oh and I have CRS or I Cant Remember Stuff. Anyway I didn't realize it's been so long.... Your friend, Jeff
