I was taking a shower tonight and accidentally poked myself in the belly. Feeling something hard, I felt a wisp of worry that maybe I'd developed a tumor or something, so I felt around a little more.

Wow, so much has happened since I last posted, not sure where to start!  Had my post-RNY 8-mo check-up on Thursday.

All labs are great & I've lost all my excess weight. MY NUT  wants me to add more calorie-dense food so I don't go any lower.

Today I jogged 2 miles, a major milestone for me!  I don't even care who heard or saw me whoop & do happy dance on the trail! After that I walked another 2 miles just because it was fun to do  

Then I got my husband to go out and play frisbee f

I'm officially down 100 lbs (from the date I started my pre-WLS liquid diet).  Whoooeee!

Last weekend I attended my nephew's graduation, which was held outside in full sun in 90+ degree heat (in the South, so lots of humidity too). While I was

About a month ago (i.e. about 5 months post-surgery) I started having problems with waking up painfully dry in my eyes & sinuses and witha sore throat.  I couldn't figure out why until I had to look in my CPAP's user manual for another reason; right th

Last Fall, I designed an outdoor fire pit/patio, had the supplies delivered, and then quickly discovered I wasn't going to be able to do it.  I could barely unload a few blocks for the retaining wall before I realized I simply could not carry them.  I

I'm about 4 months post-op and in truth am doing so well I'm a little embarrassed to say this, but I figured that if anyone would "get it" it would be the folks on this site.

I MISS FOOD.

Although I'm able to eat just fine, there is a l

This NSV may be lost on the gentlemen of the group -- today I had to remove the last of my bra extenders!  Whoopee!

Also, today I realized that my size 3X belt needs to have a new hole punched in it; this time to make it smaller rather than lar

Hi there!  Today I saw a post for "home made Quest bars" and that got me thinking that maybe I can find  a good source for making appetizing foods using protein powder.  Not complicated stuff like waffles, just easy-to-make snack, protein bars, or even

VitaFiber IMO (isomalto-oligosaccharide) and FiberYum syrups and powders are now available at reasonable prices thru Amazon.  Have any of you tried these products?  Did they upset your stomach?
