Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Heather and I had RNY on 11/18/13. I am looking to connect with other African American women who had RNY. Any takers?

So happy to meet other AA women who have had RNY! I have noticed there are more AA women who have had the sleeve done vs RNY. Can we all post our location and stats such as HW, SW, GW and CW? I will go first...

I am a slow loser and it's frustrating me to no end. My doc says I should focus on 64oz of Water per day and 60-90g of Protein. Any tips on how to get all my water and protein in daily? I will be 8 weeks on Monday. :-(

9 months to get to 135 then it took 6 months to get the 6 lbs off. I'm hoping for 5 more pounds before I totally level off.
