So, yesterday, I went to the market to shop for groceries. I woke up late and needed to get there before we went on an outing, so I didn't eat before I left. As I was shopping, I noticed that I was...

crysharris wrote Boxing Day Sad: Poor little Peanut 6 months, 3 weeks ago

So, I had to put my kitten down today. He had FeLV and went from a happy, frolicking, snuggly, and energetic kitten to deathly ill in 10 days. I'm shocked and saddened. My kids are sad. This isn't ...

I did search the forums before asking this, but I didn't get a satisfactory answer.

I'm a milk drinker and three times since surgery, I have tried to drink a cup of Horizon Organic 2% Lactose Free milk and each time, I've become nauseated. Now,

crysharris wrote weight updates... 7 months, 1 week ago

I know weighing myself daily isn't helpful but I'm obsessive about it. It feels so destructive.

I've got to trust the process and physiology. This is something I didn't do with my LapBand. I...

I knew it was going to happen and I thought I was prepared for it. I made my dinner this evening and stopped when I'd had enough. I'm in the lucky group that burps or hiccups when I've had enough. ...
