    Re: Got Shame?

    I was sick and tired of being overweight. I had tried every diet under the sun. Yes, they worked for a while but I could never sustain them and the weight piled back on. It's a similar story to many...

    Hi There

    I never drank a lot prior to surgery and afterwards cut it out all together. I tried a couple of small glasses of wine but they hit me hard and fast and I didn't really like the feeling....

    Re: no soda or straw?

    There is a lot of information to try and absorb before and after surgery.
    Take it slowly. Ask lots of questions of your surgeon. Make a list as you think of things as you think of them and take it...

    Re: Once again - weird weight observation

    Hi Annie

    I'm not sure that there is an "ideal" weight but I think that there is definitely a range where we are "happy".
    I fluctuate within a range of 2-3 kilos and I'm ok with that. I would...

    Re: I've fallen off trak

    Yep, now is the time to do something about your eating habits - before it gets overwhelming.
    As has been mentioned - back to basics.
    Do you keep an account of your food intake? Do you weigh and...

    Hi And welcome.

    You certainly should enjoy your retirement. Do as much as you want to when you want to.

    Yes, I do wonder what our new "normal" will be.

    Hi elllie

    It's difficult times that's for sure.

    I don't think that you should beat yourself up too much about the small weight gain.
    Good on you for running - not my thing at all.

    Hi Kathy
    I'm glad to hear that things are going well for you.

    Hi Polly.
    The whole eating/drinking thing does take a little bit of time to get used to.
    As Annie said above, stop drinking 30 mins before you are going to eat and don't drink for 30 mins...

    Hi and welcome

    Meat is difficult to start with. I found fish (fresh or tinned), shellfish, prawns and chicken the easiest. Minced beef was ok too. But only really small amounts. I still find...

    Hello everyone.

    It's very quiet on the forum and I totally understand why.
    We have other things to think about at the moment.

    Re: Hey!

    Hi and Welcome.

    Best not to be around hospitals at the moment so a postponement is a good thing.

    When it happens it will have definitely been worth the wait.

    All the best.
