Has anyone chosen to do martial arts over a gym membership? If so, what type of martial art did you take and do you still enjoy it? I can't seem to get motivated for the gym but taking a class sounds like fun especially if I can get my hubby on board!<

I just had my 6 month post op appointment (a little over due but hey, it happens)

My high cholesterol is on its way down, my hypothyroid syndrome is improving, my high blood pressure is non existent, my sleep apnea is getting better, my sugar l

sitting here at St.joe’s waiting for my follow up. Can’t believe it’s been 5 months since my surgery.

I’m in the waiting room so come by and visit!

I've been absent minded lately. When is the support group meeting at St' Joe's held in Hamilton? I remember it's on a Tuesday.

I was in Treasure Hunt this past weekend and they have a great summer sale on. All pants (incl. jeans) are $5.00, all shorts and shirts are $3.00 (except for GAP, Banana Republic or Old Navy stuff) I kept reading the signs because I thought it was a mi

Hi all

I am 4 months post VSG and this morning at 3am I woke up with the most severe back pain. I actually cried out it was so sudden. It's now 930am and I still can't walk straight. Any ideas out there? I'm wondering gallbladder?

Hi everyone,

Been away for a little bit. I've been pulling my hair out as to why I have stalled completely. I first stalled at the 3 week mark then things started moving again. Now I am in another stall where I can't seem to get down past 226lb

For all of yous that struggle to get your protein in on a daily basis. I've been doing a little research with help from Google.

I found a recipe for Chocolate chip cookie dough protein balls (5.4g of protein per ball) 5 ingredients total. So he

So I bought myself a full length mirror the other week. I'm not sure what prompted me but I knew I needed it. I haven't seen my reflection in quite some time. Well I got home and installed it (one of those over the door type so it wasn't rocket science

So here I sit as my hubby drives us to his niece’s wedding reception. I am so freaked out about what I can and can’t have that I made a protein shake to come with me.

I know there will be lots of my past favorites laid out before me, prosc

Hi all,

well im one week + 4 days post op. I can now get out of bed or off the couch without having to get my hubby to help me. I no longer wince in pain when I move. Been to see the NP and all is well. She’s now added vitamin B to my reperto


Squishy_in_the_middle posted a discussion topic 9 months ago

ah home. My creature comforts around me ( not forgetting to mention my husband, love you honey) so for the most part I’m feeling ok. When I get laying down I can’t get up again without yelling out in pain (enter husband here to help pull me up) one

Surgery was the easy part (at least I didn’t feel it). dr Gmora decided to go with the sleeve on me as my stomach was nestled in behind my rib cage. I’m ok with that. So now the hard part. I can seldom get comfortable, I can’t pee on my own, taki

Just thinking ahead here. Once I get to the puree stage of food, would eating baby food be easier to digest than trying to take itsy bitsy bites of other food? Has anyone else tried this? I'm curious to find out your thoughts..

I was told by the pre- op nurse that nail polish is generally not allowed in the OR room but it's up to the individual anesthesiologist. Why would that be?

So I'm sitting here at work doing my thing when I look at my desk and I just found this oddly funny. I'm used to having something on my desk to nibble on during the afternoon hours. Today I have the choice of a decaf coffee, water or beef broth. My sha

Ok peeps I really need your help here. I am on day one yes I said day one and on my third shake. I have one more to go tonight. Problem is I can’t keep them down! I am sooo nauseated by them that I can barely choke them down. And if I do, they come r


Squishy_in_the_middle posted a discussion topic 9 months, 3 weeks ago

for those of you that have or are going through the opti phase, how did you manage your shakes and work? Did you pre make them or take a blender with you? I am thinking about this as I finish my very first shake and type this question out.


Squishy_in_the_middle posted a discussion topic 9 months, 4 weeks ago

WHOOT WHOOT! I’m booked for March 17th at St. Joes in Hamilton. Start the 3 weeks of opti on Thursday

So I called the booking clerk again on Friday, left a message again, and waited yet again. Today I got my long awaited phone call to confirm my meet and greet with Dr. Hong. I couldn't be more excited! Has anyone dealt with Dr. Hong out of St. Joeseph'

A thought just occurred to me as I wait patiently for my phone call to meet the surgeon appointment. What happens if you are declined? Who gets the horrendous privilege of letting us know that tidbit of bad news?

Thus far, I am a green light go

Omg! Omg! Omg!

i think I’m in shock. I met with the internist this morning. She went through all my medications, health history and then told me that that I have the green light to meet the surgeon!

I was driving home from my appoint
