I've been AWOL and it's come clear I need the support OH has provided as it has helped me stay on track in all aspects of my life.

I don't know why but about a month ago I slumped into a bit of a rut. My life has just started looking up and I w

Good morning everyone, it's early and I've got to be out the door by 7 so hopefully it's ok I start this off this morning.

 

I had a fabulous weekend, I'd say 50% of the time I ate like I would at home and the other 50%, not so much. I

Mobility has always been an issue, at least for the past few years. I had a work related injury that has permanently damaged my lower back. The heavier I got the less I was able to move, I've lived in pain for so many years that it is normal to me. I'v

This may come as deep but I'm putting it out there anyways....

Tomorrow I begin day 1 of my testimony in 5 day trial. I'm stressed beyond stressed. 

A year and a half ago during the pre trial, I had 2 very bad coping mechanisms that got

Hello everyone!

I haven't posted in this section as up until 2 weeks ago, I believed I would be having the RNY. As I was coming to in recovery I could hear the nurses talking and that's when I discovered I received the VSG instead. I remember h

Hello everyone 

I'm still in hospital. I am to be discharged tomorrow, despite not being able to maintain my fluid intake. everything I put in creates such pain in the upper abdomen. for the first couple days I assumed it was just the gas, I've

First off, thanks to all for your good lucks and best wishes. 

Going into surgery I was excited, not overly nervous. my surgery was to begin at 7:45am. I was walked into the O.R at about 8:45am. as I laid there, I had met most of the surgery te

I can't believe in less then 24 hours I'll be in surgery! 

What seemed like only a dream will be reality before I know it.

As I was making my breakfast optifast I realized I'm actually going to miss it. The simplicity of not having to t

Today is my daughters 14th birthday and I remember we had a party planned with all her favorite foods and my famous ice cream cake that I've always made for as long as I can remember. When I found out in October that my surgery was several months soone

Hello everyone, 

This morning I had my final appointment before surgery, via computer, the coolest part was how a doctor 4 hours away was able to listen to my heart and hear me breath via a stethoscope the nurse with me had...really technology

I've been reading post after post from every forum for days and I've only read of one other person having to be on OPTIFAST for more then the average 2/3 weeks.

Hello everyone!

I was wondering if anyone in the Toronto area can recommend any reasonable hotels within a couple of km from St. Michaels hospital? 

Thanks in advance!
