Some OH members like to use their blog to track the entire process from pre-op to after surgery including their daily life changes.  Others like to take a picture of their food and portion sizes and add favorite recipes.  Some like to blog about their major milestones and non-scale victories (NSVs) while check in once a month for measurements and weigh-ins.  Your blog is here for you to utilize on your journey in whatever way works best for you!
