RIght now I am heading down the bariatric surgery trail. I am in the pre-approval process where you lose weight traditionally. Not quite sure why since this is not the same as the low carb pre-surgery weight loss for liver shrinkage.

Seems ironic. need to lose weight to prove to insurance companies that you have tried and failed to lose weight (or 'enough' weight) conventionally - need to lose weight I guess to show that you can be compliant with post-op new regimen.

Anyway - I am spending more time on the electronic board specific to the practice I am working with - so I am pretty much a sparkpeople occassional lurker.

I can appreciate that! My fitbit syncs, so that's helpful, and i use just a good old fashioned notebook to keep a food journal without calorie tracking. I'm just kind of curious to see how many people are still actually around: it says we have ~130 members, but there's ~10 (probably being generous with that number) who i see regular activity from. Continuing with my curiosity, are there are challenges or topics that would interest you, or would you rather to just continue to be a "silent" member? emoticon
And thank you for taking the time to reply!

I hardly ever go on Sparkpeople anymore. Not quite sure why... probably because I use a different tracker on my phone and that always bugs me that I can't 'synch' them.

Kotzebue here... I actually changed jobs in town in order to have access to a gym. Now I just need to show up.

Welcome. Hope your weather is as beautiful as ours here in Fairbanks.

Hi! I'm a teacher in the Lower Yukon School District, currently living in a tiny village on the west coast, a little south of Nome. I've been out here for a year and a half now, and have been struggling with my weight my entire life. Last year I took off 20 or so pounds living out here, but I must have become a better cook, as this year I put it all back on. I'm hoping to get back on track and more focused this summer, and make next year my most successful one yet. A big part of that is going to be getting back to being active on Spark People, as I think it was a big part of my previous success. Glad to be here!!
