  1. Lightbulb moment

    I've been struggling lately, after my recent blog posts anyone who's read them will know I've been scratching my head as to where I'm going wrong.
    Last night I was looking for recipes, menu ideas, that kind of thing when I came across a thread from a long time ago where the poster talked of being very hungry all the time. "That's just like me" I thought. I have been grazing a lot and the reason I've been grazing is because I never felt full and felt hungry all the darn time. I'd ...
  2. Tis the season!!

    So, I have been so busy I have not had much time to get on here, but I wanted to drop in and give updates.

    I am 2 1/2 months out from surgery and I am seeing the changes now. Before I knew in my head that there were changes, but when I looked in the mirror all I saw was the old fat self. Luckily my husband has been very generous at helping with that. He sends me texts periodically of pictures of me from years ago that I didnít even know he had with a side by side pic of the new me. ...
  3. I'm going wrong somewhere....

    Yesterday I had my monthly check up at my surgeons. The physician's assistant took my blood pressure and weight and saw that I am 1.4lbs up from last month.

  4. 24 days Post Op

    Well, it's done!! Went into the hospital at 5:30 am on a Monday and left at 5pm on Tuesday. In that short span of time, I can already tell my life has changed dramatically and for the better. I went into surgery weighing 354 and went to my two week follow-up weighing 332. Now I know things will not be that drastic all this time, but it sure is a positive feeling to know things are heading in the right direction!!

    Recovery was not too big of a deal and things went fairly smooth other ...
  5. Left Scratching My Head

    A BIG thank you to everyone who responded and/or viewed this latest post (Update - Fluid Intake: 11/29/2017). After much consideration regarding this current situation, I am left scratching my head in wonder as to how I managed to get myself into such a predicament in the first place. I thought I was consuming adequate amounts of fluids, but after conversing with my wife about the events of yesterday, it was then that I realized I wasn't consuming the right amounts of liquids.

    I ...
