Hi Everyone,

No menu post yet today so I'll kick it off! Julia has already been awake for 6 hours by now LOL!

QOTD: If you could be one person for one day, and then revert back to being yourself, who would you be?

I would be J

Hello RNY friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done more than lurk here, so here I am. I’ve been battling some regain for the past year or so (year 5 post surgery) and I guess I use the word battle loosely since I’ve been bitching about i

Hi there WLS friends!

I had a total "aha" moment during spin class last night, and then two things happened on OH today that made me think it's time to start a thread. I think all too often we are all caught up in the number on the scale or th

Hi WLS friends,

This is sort of a weird topic, but it's come to the forefront after last night's Oscar duet between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Literally, every single news outlet today made it seem like they must be MADLY in love because th

You guys, Iceland was magical.

I honestly had never really had it super high on my list of places to visit, and we chose it because Kris' sister (who ended up CANCELING on us a week prior) really wanted to see the Northern Lights. And tickets

So today’s menu post got me thinking...and Jim (GreatEight) pointed out that the menu thread has a subculture of mayonnaise haters! (Personally I see more mushroom haters but since he’s a mayo hater, he aligns with his brethren lol)

It got

So I am confused as to how scales can determine your fat vs. water vs. bone, but many say they can. I just have a regular scale. BUT, I saw on the Today Show this morning, for folks in the US, they have an incredible deal on one of those scales for $

Good morning and happy new year, everyone!

I was super spoiled at Christmas and got all sorts of kitchen and cooking gadgets and stuff. The kids got me a cupcake maker. Yep, it's like a waffle maker but makes cupcakes. Cupcakes are their fav

Unofficially, when someone is five years out from surgery, they are considered a veteran (vet) on this site. When I started this journey five years ago, I had no idea what was ahead of me.

If you take one thing away from this post, it’s that

Hi fellow WLSers. I'm curious...what is something you never imagined you could do, and now you can?

It can be as minor as "wrap a normal sized towel around my body" or as major as "skydive".

I know I had no idea how trapped I was in

I am curious...have any of you inspired anyone else to lose weight or have WLS?

When I was in the first year of weight loss, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone in the world who was struggling with their weight to have WLS.

What is your best menu hack so you can have a version of a favorite food from back in the day, but with a new high protein option whose macros fit your plan?

I used to LOVE Chipotle burrito bowls. I love all Mexican food. Pre-surgery, I would

Let me preface this preachy post by saying I am asking you to do what I am advising, and not what I did. Because what I did was stupid.

I had RNY in December 2013. 4 years and 4 months ago. I was the poster child for WLS that first year. I

It was four years ago that I joined OH, as I searched the interwebs for any and all information that I could find on weight loss surgery. I was 36 years old and 351 lbs. While I didn’t have health problems (YET), I was tired. Tired of waking up an

So I was at physical therapy today for a hip alignment issue that was causing pain in my lower back. It was my first time seeing this particular gal, and after she used a heating pad and had me do the exercises, she started massaging and kneading my l

Hi everyone,

When I had RNY at 5'4", age 36, 351 lbs in December 2013, I was apparently delusional and didn't think I was going to have loose skin (!!!). I got down to 160 lbs (my personal goal; surgeon didn't give me one) and my skin was atro

Hi fellow weight loss strugglers,

My boyfriend's son is a little chunky and eats eats eats until the plate is empty.  He often eats past the point of being full, and says, "but it tastes so good!".  I see a lot of me in him, which makes me sad,

I don’t even know where to start.  Tomorrow marks my three year surgiversary and on the one hand, it feels like it’s been 100 years since I was SMO (super morbidly obese) while on the other hand, it seems like yesterday.   I was very active on the board
