  1. 16 months : 100 gr at a time

    Hello friends!

    Those busy last weeks didn't let me much time to read you or post, but I'm still there thinking about you all!

    My weight is still going down little by little, currently losing 100gr per week. It's one pound per month, not much and I can see that even if I walk a lot (10 km per day for 3 days this week) it doesn't really change the result at the end. Because there's a few weeks here and there where I lose nothing at all so one pound per month is the average ...
  2. Swelling going down! transition time!

    I've been back from my long trip (+13h flight with one stop over) 9 days ago and I can see that finally my legs are getting better, the swelling is going down.
    But my fingers are still puffy for some reason.

    I've been drinking a lot to help with the water retention but it's the first time it takes so long to go away. And I did take my usual supplements so I'm not sure why this time is different. Probably just getting older..

    My scale is also smiling. One month ...
  3. 15 months: last vacation before the big move

    We came back from Australia yesterday at 5 AM, so we are all pretty jet lagged and tired, and I'm very puffy after the long flights.
    Our trip was great, we got a lot done but also had a lovely time with our dear friends.

    It was great also to be able to find lovely food and cook a few meals from scratch that I can't cook in Taiwan because I can't find the ingredients or if I can once a year it's imported and just crazy expensive. So we had lots of veggies (arugula, spinach, ...
  4. 14 months: is it over?

    I know my surgeon said I could lose easily until 18 months out but for the past weeks I see for the first time a "floating" pound coming on and off and I think that my weight is trying to stabilize. Before my weight would never go up (unless I was taking a medication) so I notice something new here.

    My hubby keeps on telling me I look great and don't need to lose more weight, I really want a buffer or at least be out of the wood (on the BMI side). Not the case right now, ...
  5. Taking turmeric to help with tendonitis

    Since we can't take NSAIDs post-op, I decided to try something else that wouldn't affect my stomach.

    I did read a lot in the past years about Ayurvedic "healing". I have a friend who goes to India several times a year to do Ayurvedic retreats, it's all about massages, diet, meditation and taking some important supplements. She has several health issues and it seems to help her a lot.

    Turmeric is used a lot in India to help with inflammation.
    I've been ...
