Wanted to drop a line, halleauh! it great to see some real local Sparks. Been with it for a few months now and it's slow going but getting some great moral support so hang in there. 3531 days ago
Good for you for trying this before turning to gastric bypass! You're right - it's easier than most people think. Once you realize your actual caloric intake, it makes it easier to switch and make healthier decisions. Not that I don't *want* those chips and salsa with lunch! :) Welcome on board! jenn. 3534 days ago
Welcome to Gastric Bypass! I am pre-op and I'm doing the same thing you are doing. Go to my spark page and read my story that I started on Jan. 4, 2007. You will find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we'll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
