Was wondering about the difficulty of revising from VSG to RNY? Will the Dr. do it? Will my insurance accept it? I've been experiencing GERD a lot lately along with a constant dry cough. While it is and has been annoying I was not too concerned about i

I noticed that some turn to WW's as a way to maintain, or even lose more weight. I was thinking of doing it myself but how does WW work with our new caloric adjustment? When on WW's before WLS I could eat about 1800 calories a day and lose 2 lbs a week

Ok, you have an hour at the gym. Best exercise for losing weight and body fat? Weight training? Cardio? Circuit Training? Fitness class. Spinning? Swimming? What's the best overall training exercise?

What's the dealio with "Sugar-Free" products? I like to buy Sugar-Free iced coffee. Usually I go to DD's and get it with just half&half and then put either Splenda or Stevia/Truvia which I usually carry around with me.  At McDonald's they have

With the VSG it is very hard to binge cheat! I mean think about it? Before when I cheated with pizza I could eat a whole pie! Now, I can only eat a small slice and that with the crust cut off! Befo

Anyone have a mantra, phrase, routine, health thought, etc they use when they are about to make a wrong decision as far as eating?

It's no joke! I guess many develop this after a lot of weight lost. My father was diabetic and had high blood sugar, I have non-diabetic low blood sugar. (hypoglycemic) At least it teaches you how

Had surgery in August 2014. Although I was ALWAYS told to chew very thoroughly, this is now just getting through to my thick head! If you chew everything very thoroughly not only will it stave off

Probably been discussed before has anyone investigated "Intermittent Fasting"? I tried it and I found that not eating after 6:00pm and then again not until after 10:00 the next morning works for me.

It means I work out in the morning around 5:4

I like that fact that she never gives up-she is a fighter and she continues to talk about and use her struggles to help others. I wish her all the best!

Does anyone have a fitbit? How well do they work? Can you buy another and perhaps cheaper brand that also works as well? Is it really worth it and is it accurate? For now I post my ca
