    Default Garbage

    This site has become total garbage. All of the regulars have left and been replaced by bots it seems. Such a shame as it was so good for the first 5 years I was here.

    I am not a robot. I agree. It is time for a regular reunion. After my surgery in October of 2017 I relied on their suggestions on a daily basis. The best to all during these difficult times. We all have challenges in our lives but coming together to help each other with our weight loss is special. Helping total strangers says a lot about character. Maybe the old timer regulars can check in and say hello?

    HI hope you are all well. I agree, not been much on lately. I do check in to see whats happening. I would love all the 'oldies' to come back and post as they/you are all amazing and inspirational. At the moment I am trying to get back on track as this lock down has been no good for me. TG my gym has been open and I have been able to go and train and have PT otherwise I think i would have gained loads of weight. I hope you all have lovely celebrations over the next few weeks and would love to see you all in the new year. stay safe.

    You are totally right. It's turned into a waste of time. People reposting stuff from 2012. I don't get what happened. I think there are only maybe 4 of us "old timers" left!!

    I come back every few days and have a say if there is anything relevant to comment on - but most of it is just garbage as Katrina said.

    Good to know that there are still a few of us that keep an eye on the forum :-)

    I'm glad to see some of you are still around. Remember the good ol days when regulars were posting every single day? I felt like we had our own little family... if a bit dysfunctional I miss it. I hope you guys keeping popping in.

    I'd hate to let this site go because people still come here for help and guidance. I think we need to start posting and creating threads.

    I've just started my journey (surgery was Nov. 23rd). I can learn a lot from you guys and would hate to see you go. I don't check in everyday but when I do, I don't see much. I've had questions and I search the site for relevance but everything I see is from 7 and 8 years ago. I believed signing up on the website would be a good thing for me and I still do. I'm having MAJOR problems with reflux that I can barely get any food down. If any of you had that problem and overcame it, I would sure love to hear from you!

    I had problems with acid reflux too. My surgeon actually scheduled me for a conversion to gastric bypass but my insurance did not agree. Around two months post op my reflux is mostly under control. I take 40 mg Protonix twice a day. I found eating a small soft food every 2 - 3 hours helped. I have just started eating a regular diet and learning what my stomach can tolerate. This whole surgery is a daily learning process. I wonder if what I am going through is normal or how am I doing. I believe I am having my first stall. I haven't had a lot of luck with this forum and anybody answering my posts.
