From time to time I have a tickle in my throat that leads to coughing. This occurs especially sometimes after I have eaten? It's been 5 1/2 years since I had my VSG. I'm not sure but I'm assuming its symptoms are part of GERD? I never really thought I

Appear to be back on track after a disastrous two months!!! Getting in my 10,000 steps at work. Going to gym 4 days a week for resistance training and more cardio. But even better it appears that I have my eating back under reasonable control, low-carb

Does anyone watch 600 lb life and actually get hungry? I do! So now I know I'm sick!! Food should repulse me as I watch it, but there I am

Gained .02 lbs-not too bad. Not an eventual week in any way other than just off routine. JETS actually beat the Giants and LSU won! Kind of in funk with this

Not a good week. Was stressed and anxious over bills, did not stick to my program but I need to be accountable. The scale does not lie! Did well pretty much o

Lowest I've been since 1997! I usually weigh in with clothes and footwear on. Was really sick last week. One night after an episode, with just my jam

I had VSG on August 26,2014 (5 years ago) and for the first 6 months to about 2 years I lost weight pretty regularly up to 100 lbs. I'm not complaining, the tool did what it was suppose to do, but it w

Is it just me or does there seem to be less chatter and discussion on this forum? I used to come to here for a pick me up and therapeutic relief. Used to be newbies asking questions, veterans giving suggestions and just others relating their journey. T

Hey guys,

Last week 251.2

This week 248.7

Almost forgot to weigh in! knowing I would be accountable helped me stick to a plan. Back under 250 lbs again! Hopefully eventually I will get under my low of 247 lbs

Hey guys, figured I would come to the men's sight. Usually I post on the General Forum but perhaps I need more insight from a man's point of view and I like how you guys have weigh-ins and hold yourself accountable. My high weight was about 350 lbs, at

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

I hear you!! Before at 1800 calories a day I could 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?

Just wondering? Had the VSG August 2014. My high was about 350 lbs. After about a year I was down to 247 lbs and really thought I could at the very least get to 225lbs which I would of been happy with since I have always played sports and when young wa

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

I had VSG 8/14/14. I haven't really had a large regain, I mean I have gained weight back and forth-my lowest was 245 lbs and my highest 262 since I lost weight by surgery two years ago but I usuall
