    I don't know why these spammers suddenly have a hard on for this site. It has not been an issue until that last few months. The first 2+ years I was on here was no spam. Ugh..
  2. Re: Considering Sleeve Surgery Next Week -- terrified and don't know whether to do it.

    Re: What do you consider snacking?

    If I only ate 3 meals a day I would wither away to nothing. I eat 5-6 times a day because I still eat pretty small portions. :)

    Re: worried about getting liquids in!

    PS Ann....I wear socks to bed unless I get hot. I love my feet to be warm. My hubby has always made fun of me for it. :)
