    I was flying home from vacation the other day and bought a whole roasted chicken so-cal salad for $8. Took three bites and threw the whole thing away. I knew I wouldn't be able to eat much of it but was craving it. Oh well. lol.

    This forum is part of my education and "retraining" my brain. I start with a local support group next week that meets at the hospital . I'm not sure what to expect but thought it could be a piece of building a network of support. Many thanks to all of you on the forum that take the time to post.

    I sometimes wonder how much research folks do prior to choosing the surgery.

    I did not have a psych eval (but have been on the crazy train since birth); however, I did know that this was a lifetime change that I CHOSE to make. My health is better to an extraordinary degree. I have exxtremely supportive "ologists" (all 7 of them) and because my multiple chronic health issues are sooo much better post surgery, I am willing and grateful to live this way the rest of my life.

    That said, I am scale obsessed....but y'all are incredibly supportive of every one's unique walk on this journey.
    Why is smoking pot an unreasonable question? Some state's it's legal and there's also MMJ

    Surprised the leader didn't tell the person to put the donuts back in his/her car! Insane.

    I guess I don't see an issue with this - it's up to us to not eat them right? If there were spouses there then ok let them have it. I guess I am coming from the perspective of personal responsibility from an addict and alcoholic viewpoint. (recovering now since 2001 but still....) I get asked once in awhile why I go to bars and the simple reply is because I am not dead... I still have a social life and enjoy live music. A year after I got sober was my class reunion and one of my closest friends got on my nerves making sure I didn't drink lol I finally told her if I wanted to drink no one could stop me and if I didn't want to drink no one could make me. Same with donuts or any other foods.
