It's about time

I had Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery in August of 2009. I went from 355 lbs. to 175 lbs., but I have put nearly 75 of that back on. I'm trying again, joined a gym, and am tracking my food. Here's hoping I can get 50 of that off again.

Awesome! Let's be accountable! Ok, what you can do for me is help keep me mentally/emotionally accountable...making sure I am doing all the supportive things for myself instead of sabbotaging and spiraling. For example...I have a weigh-in this a.m. (I am sure you gathered that from my blog:O)) and I do not want to spiral afterward if it isn't a 'good' weigh-in. I need support like that!

As for the lbs lost...funny you should ask. Last week I went on the message boards and posted the same question. You have to go to edit your page...I'm trying to remember...ok I've got it...just went back through the process myself. Ok once you click edit my page go over to the left and click on 1 of your pics that currently show up on your pg (not gallery pics). Click on that once and a window will open saying upload a photo on left and on right or choose a photo from your gallery. Right under that phrase is "also choose from our success gallery" click on that and there you go!

Whew! i think I just broke out in a sweat emoticon
