    I just seen your message.
    No worries i have some issues going on and i wasn't gonna make it. Sucks when you (me) don't drive.
    Hope your hubby is fine.
    And i would love to meet later on.
    Ohhh i have my appointment Sep 11 with my neurologist im praying they will find a cure for my dizziness.
  2. Hi Denise. Sorry I couldn't meet up with you when I was in Bakersfield. We have lots of family there and with the baby shower and visiting family, it just didn't work out. Baby will be here in Oct. so maybe ther. My husband had to have surgery this past Wed. And we hope to go home tomorrow.
    I haven't posted in a while. Not sure about my weight. Haven't seen a scale in 2weeks. I've got about 25 lbs to get to my goal. I think it's going to be the hardest lbs yet. But slow and steady will be my goal. I hope to reach it by my 1 year surgeriversary.

    Hello...my name is Angel...I read on the forum regarding dizziness and saw that you had great exercises for vertigo. Can I possibly get a copy. I just started suffering from vertigo. Thanks so much!
  5. Hi Jules. I'm doing great and feeling better than I have in YEARS! I'm so excited to have lost over 55lbs in less than 5 months. I love all the compliments I'm getting as I'm sure you are too. Your new picture looks great. I need to post a new one too. Congrats on your progress. You're getting so close to goal!

My hubby,daughter and I rode bicycles across the Golden Gate Bridge for my 63rd birthday!

ONEderland this morning!

by Flipflops on 03-30-2014 at 01:43 PM
I'm over the moon this morning. I finally got to ONEderland!!! I've been on the verge for a week now. I think my body didn't like leaving the 200's and was hanging on till the end.

Thanks for all the encouragement friends!

Has anyone tried this?

I just purchased a package of Bob's Red Mill High Protein TVP (textured vegetable protein). 12g protein, 7g carbs, 80 cal in 1/4 cup. Has anyone tried this and how did you use it?

Tomorrow I will be 3 weeks out from surgery. Every since the scopolamine patch came off about 4 days after surgery, I get very dizzy when rolling over at night and sitting up in bed. I don't have the symptoms during the day. Dr. said it is common and will go away. Nurse said to make sure I drink all my water, which I am really trying to do.
Has anyone else experienced this?
