It's a little early to send wishes for a Happy New Year, but I'm on the computer now.

I was nervous going in to the follow up appointment with my surgeon, but it was all worth it.  They have improved their information so much since I was there 4 years ago.  I was given a booklet they now present to patient

Tomorrow is my appointment at my surgeon's office.  I've not been there in 4 years.  My PCP does labs each year so I've kept up with that.  I want to get back on track and get this excess weight off.  I put off making an

I found 2 recipe sites that have great recipes.  I've printed several and plan to make some of them tomorrow.  They are:

I've had a great deal of stress the past few months.   DH was hospitalized for 2 weeks then in rehab for 2 more weeks.  He is doing well now and I'm very thankful for that.  I was hoping to retire for good, and I didn't w

In the beginning (8 years ago) I stopped drinking 30 minutes before eating a meal and didn't drink for 30 minutes afterwards.  I still wait 30 minutes after a meal because it makes sense that the food would be washed out

My Do Over is going well with a small loss of mind this afternoon.  We attended my great niece's birthday party.  I used lettuce on my burger instead of a bun.  I've tried the lettuce 3 times and I really don't like it.

My RNY was done 7/8/2008.  I wish I could say I lost all the excess weight and I have never regained any of the lost pounds, but......that's not the case.

I lost 70 lbs. but s

It's been a roller coaster ride the past 3 weeks.  DH was transferred to rehab last Thursday and the first few days were rocky.  Finally, Wednesday he turned the corner and is improving each day.  He did have a stroke and

My eating has improved greatly this week.  I bought a special little notebook to write down my food choices, record my weight and make notes about what happened each day.  I want to start posting in Roz's message, but this week I'm working  on eating s

My RNY was 7/8/2008.  I was given instructions for eating for the first 2 weeks, then 4 weeks and after 5 months.  I'm sure I read these instructions at the time, but when I pulled them out to review today, it was if I wa

I weighed this morning and saw a 1.8 lb. loss for the week.  I switched from Weight Watcher meetings to their online program.  It's much cheaper but gives me access to all their info

Nearly 8 years ago I had RNY so why am I WW member?  One would think that having RNY is a pretty drastic measure to take to lose weight.  I have no regrets about the surgery.  I have

I've been working for a tax preparer since the end of January.  Yesterday was my last day.  I never want to see a W-2 or 1099 ever again.  When I interviewed, the owner said there would be "some" Saturdays.  I worked ever

DH has knee replacement surgery today so I was at the hospital from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.  I did plan my food rather than make bad choices.  I drank an Organic Muscle Milk on the way, had a Corozonas for a morning sna

I've been trying to keep carbs 50 or less and have done well eating at home.  Saturday we were invited to a Hawaiian Luau.  That worked out much better than I anticipated.  There was the pork along with shrimp and beef ka

I'm nearly 7 years out so I should have this eating down, but apparently I don't.  During one of my post-op visits, the dietician told me I should have a minimum of 130 good carbs daily just for the brain to function.  Th

I take Fiber Gummies daily and sometimes use vitamin gummies.  Is there any reason why I shouldn't use the chewies?  Seems like I read recently they shouldn't be used by WLS patients.  Most of the time I use Centrum vitamins and double the dosage on th
