  1. Thank you......I think I need to start tracking my protein intake, I will call the dietician at the surgeons office. I am probably not getting enough protein to keep my blood sugar stable. I have lost 10% of my initial weight. This is the most weight I have ever lost so I guess it comes with some manageable side effects.
  2. Hi Bob, wow, you have some very impressive weight loss, that is awesome to see your success.
  3. Thanks Jen, I need to get an app to track my intake....yesterday I had a major hypoglycemic episode, fortunately I was with my girlfriend, who is an RN, and she gave me fruit juice and chocolate milk. I got kind of sweaty a few minutes ago too. My weight loss did restart and as of today I am down about 37# since June 25.
  4. Are you getting ready for the Fair???
  5. Hi Geoff, Thank you very much....I like your name of Res Ipsa.....been there done that ! Ed
  6. Hi, I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy on June 25th. Initially I lost about 30# in the first few weeks but I am now not losing anymore weight even though I am taking in less than 1,200 calories a day. The surgeons nurse pratitioner and the nutritionest told me I was not drinking enough water and not eating enough protein. I am going to start a food log. Does anyone have any experience with this issue ? Thank You, Ed
  7. Thank you. Unfortunately the only time I get to see these unique horses is during the NYS Fair which is the last week in August
