    Do you go to Dr. Turnquest for any follow-up? From what I understand, there's not much except blood work - and I get that done every six months anyway. . .

    Just trying to cover all my bases. . . getting super nervous about all of this. . .Thanks so much for the tout!

    I would like the name of that doctor. I am having my procedure in Mexico due to costs and no insurance.

    My surgery went well. I really had little pain and the gas was tolerable. Dr. Almamzo's clinic is in a strip mall, which at first was off-putting to some people. I have lived in the developing world for years, So was not uncomfortable. I can tell you that it is very clean and the nurses are great. I feel good, was able to work half-day today. I am tired but no pain.

    Hope your surgery went well. I was wondering if you would mind letting me know how your experience went. I am having surgery in Sept and I need peace of mind.

Hi all,
I haven't been on here for about a year and a half. I've maintained my goal weight, up until this year. 2016 has not been my year. I have gained about 12 lbs back,(stress eating).

Things have started to settle back down, so I have started watching what I eat and trying to walk every day. I know that I can knock this off by the

Venting: People and what they say

by MissSparkie on 10-23-2013 at 03:40 PM
I at the beginning of the year I started out being a size 20@ 235 lbs. Now I am a size 10/12 @150. People are starting to tell my husband that I am sickly looking and that I need to stop losing and gain some weight back. Even at work & church they are starting to tell me the same thing.

I've got where I can not hold my tongue anymore and for the lady's I pull out my tags, for the men & ladies I have

Mowing the Lawn

Can anyone tell me how long it was before they were able to start mowing their yards? We have an acre, which I mow with a push mower. I know that I will probaly pay someone to mow it the first week but wondering for how long.

Back to work after one week??

Has any one went back to work one week after having surgery? How did it go?
I will need to go back to work, six days after surgery. I am kind of unsure how that will be. I do have a desk job.
