Have a question relating to Colombia surgeons. I found out the other day that the daughter-in-law of a friend of mine is going to be flying to Colombia (don't know which city) next week for apparently a revision from an unsuccessful RNY a few years ago

Now that we're less than 5 months from the re-set date, do we know for certain that it is going to still be taking place in October?

This article supposedly encompasses the latest in medical studies on the subject, but frankly, no new surprises here. I guess though you co

I was reading this list of world cities/countries that have the most/least, etc. of different aspects. Sadly, the only place the U.S. (or any U.S. city) held on the list was "most food consumed" of all nations. Check out this factoid (which is actual

Interesting .. I knew she recently had V.S.G., but didn't know several years earlier she had another type of WLS .. The article calls that one "Gastric Bypass", which would seem to indicate RNY, but then it goes on to say she decided to have "the band

Here's the latest ... I was stunned to learn that less than 35 years ago, NO state even had a 15% obesity rate .. Many states now have significantly over TWICE that level ..

A vow (and bet) made on NYs by a newly-married couple turned out beautifully for both of them (sorry about all the ads in the article, btw):

Wow .. Saw this on Dr. P.'s show earlier today .. The brother of this sibling pair has lost over 400 lbs. and then regained it all + more .. My heart really goes out for both of them ..

He took off the fat and put on some (extra) muscle. Looks great now. Here's how he did it (sorry for having to run the "gauntlet of ad

I too notice she has been putting on weight recently (hosting a food show probably didn't help, either ) .. Glad to see she is taking steps

Ran across this interesting article today .. What a story .. Sidiebie has been on (and off) diets since the age of SIX ... Also suffered from Bulimia .. She made the decision a couple of years or so ago to have V.S.G., as well as wrote her autobio.

WOW .. After losing 420 lbs. (and plastics) she is BEAUTIFUL .. Quite the success story and very happy for her ...

Just goes to show how supportive spouses can help each other reach their goals during their journey together (although I didn't particularly care for the dig @ WLS taken near the end of the article - i.e. "did it w/o gastric bypass surgery"

Amazing transformation, although I wish they wouldn't have taken a dig at WLS near the end of the article (i.e. "did it without gastric bypass surgery"

Just got notice of this brand new med supposedly for weight loss. First time I'm seen an injectable form of weight loss drug, too (it comes in a "pen", similar to insulin for diabetics) .. Looks like this one works on the body's "hunger hormone" leve

Wow. This is a really sad story. Lorenzen, despite his unusual size for a quarterback (260 or so lbs.), had a record-setting career in college football and later went on to play for a couple of NFL teams. After time, his weight started going higher
