I just got a phone call that after three months of waiting, my insurance company has approved my panniculectomy. I'm over the moon happy but torn as to when to have this done. I just met my deductible for the year with an ER visit last month. So if I d

Two weeks ago I posted about my kidney problems. I was pretty worried. I had gone to the hospital thinking I might have appendicitis. It ended up being a ruptured ovarian cyst but they discovered cysts on my kidneys and mentioned polycystic kidney dise

I've had a really rough few days.  Not WLS related, but just in general. I'd been having some abdominal pain and, afraid it was my appendix, I went to the ER. They found a ruptured ovarian cyst, so painful but not a big deal. However, when doing the CT

My WL surgeon doesn't do WLS any more. His clinic still does follow ups, but they are 4 hours away. I don't really want to drive 4 hours and take a day or two off work to see a nurse or PA. So, I had my 2 year blood test done and evaluated by my PCP. M

Hi! I'm so very ready for this weekend! Headed to Jackson, Wy for a soccer tournament but we are also going to float down the Snake River through Grand Teton National Park. I haven't done that in probably 25 years!

I've realized recently that I often eat because it is "time to eat" instead of actually needing to eat. I'm curios, how often do some of you other folks in maintenance eat? Do you make sure you eat 3 or 4 times a day or do you eat when you feel like yo

I live in central Wyoming and am hoping to get a tummy tuck and breast lift before the end of the year. Can anyone recommend a good surgeon in the SLC or Denver areas?  I got a quote in Wyoming, but I'm assuming it will be less in a city.

I had a great weekend and I hope you all did too. My son had a music concert. The YouTube video isn't up yet, but if you'd like to check out one of his previous concerts you can google him. "Forrest Dike TNT" was last years spring concert. He was 8.

Good morning! I'm so thankful it is almost Friday! What a stressful week this has been after my relaxing vacation. I've lost one of the three pounds I gained in Vegas!

B: yogurt and granola, and then I had part of a dark chocolate pecan turtle.

so my husband and I were out of town for 6 days, 4 in Vegas. I was worried, but I did really well. Twice I was over full and was worried it was going to come up. I ate sugar and carbs, but in moderation. No more than usual. The only thing that was very

I didn't do as well yesterday. I ended up having to take my mother in law to the doctor so I didn't get to eat the lunch I had planned. I was feeling it...if I don't eat frequently enough I start to feel kind of weak...so I ended up eating the only thi

Good morning! I stuck to my plan yesterday and didn't have a single bite that wasn't part of a meal. My plan says no snacking and I still struggle with that daily. But, tomorrow we leave and Thursday we'll be in Vegas and I've lost 4 of the 7 pounds I

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I did! I was careful, didn't snack and made good choices, or had very small portions of the not so good choices. I'm thankful that I'm actually down a couple pounds because my hubby and I are headed to Vegas

Hi All!  It is a cold, snowy day here in Wyoming.  We are supposed to get at least a foot of snow by tomorrow night, but at this rate, I'm thinking it will be more than that.  I'm thankful we aren't planning on going anywhere!

B: leftover roast

Good morning! I'm pleased to say I actually exercised yesterday and today. It feels good to do something positive. I ate cake, and too much of it, on Saturday, but I was a super good eater on Sunday. I've found that when I cut out the carbs that I get

Good morning! I'm maintaining well, but I'd like to shed 5 lbs before we head to Vegas in 2 weeks. My eating is on track, so I guess I need to exercise. I just have a really hard time getting up at 4:30 to do it.

Good morning! I'm feeling good! I was a good eater yesterday and I'm taking it one day at a time. Maintaining is difficult!
