  1. Exciting news

    @ktallon Wishing you the best; I sure hope this is the beginning of "much better".
  2. Changing bra sizes as the pounds drop

    Wait...your hubs is a bra couturier?
  3. Changing bra sizes as the pounds drop

    It IS disheartening. My breasts, butt and legs are all but disappearing. What I WANT to get rid of, my belly, is apparently the last to go. Sigh.
  4. Please give me some tough love.

    @NerdyToothpick I'll skirt the question whether a mini bear claw is or is not an inherently bad thing. My advice is just to remember something I read once (can't remember where): "Honey, this is only a moment. It's not the rest of your life!"
  5. My internal medicine guy said: reduce the size of your portions, eat more slowly, and eat more often (if you're not eating six times a day already). Both will help prevent a large amount of food getting into your intestine at once (which sparks the reactive hypoglycemia). Works for me.
  6. No words

    The Cleveland Clinic is generally very good; I hope you can work it out. A second opinion really sounds like the way to go. I sure hope your luck changes soon.
  7. Good to hear this, as I am at about this number of calories.
  8. Stressed!

    Hi Cynrey, how awful. I don't know what the right answer is; this happens. Three of us had surgery on the same day and had the same hospital room. I had no problems. Roommate two had no problems. Roommate three had two more surgeries before she was able to start recovering. No one can make this decision for you, but most surgeries go well. I wish you luck with your decision and I'll be thinking of you and your friend. I hope she begins to recover soon!
  9. Fun milestone

    How exciting, @Gretta! Enjoy.
  10. Sounds like my first mountain hike in Austria. My neck was gritty with salt crystals from my dried-up sweat. It was amazing to realize I’d done something like that. I still have the photo of myself with the town waaaaaay down in the valley. Congrats! If you do something like this again, let me suggest one of those electrolyte drinks, even diluted. Plain water washes the electrolytes out of your body. I learned this the hard way....
  11. NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    You are just so friggin CUTE!
  12. Tracking intake

    I use it a lot, but haven't felt the need. So far everything I need is in the basic version.
  13. Forum changes

    Hi Tom, what do you mean by lack of activity?
