FS thinks I need to add a bio, so here goes. My name is Rhonda and I am an antique junkie, thus my FS handle. I am a 64 year old mother to one awesome son and grandma to 3 perfect grandkids. I grew up shuttling back and forth between the farm and the city depending on whether I was living with my momma or my grandparents. Kind of had the best of both worlds. Got married very young (16) to my Mr. Wonderful and never looked back! It's been almost 50 years and I love him more than ever. For the first 30 some years we lived in the city and visited the country relatives as often as possible and in 2000 we moved back to the farm. We are both now retired, tho there is always work on the farm, at least for the hubby! I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have lost and regained countless hundreds of pounds. I am now at an age where the extra weight is limiting me from doing the things I want to do. So it has to go, and go for good! Low carb is the only way I can lose weight and not feel like I am starving to death, so that is the WOE I am going with.
In August of 2015 I opted for a VSG, I had been working toward this for a little over a year. I have lost large amounts of weight in the past and always ended up regaining it. I am hoping this weight loss surgery will be the tool I need to lose the rest of the weight and keep it off. I will still stick with a low carb lifestyle as I know the surgery is just a tool and I still need to be in control of my WOE. Best of luck to all of us, God bless us every one! Rhonda

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I'm not weighing in the month of February either, but only because we are traveling and no access to a scale. Otherwise I know I would not have the will power to stay off of them! I am going thru withdrawal and it hasn't even been a week yet!

First Day Here
Logging all your food is so important. It can be shocking how quickly the carbs and calories add up!

I sooooo wish there was access to an indoor pool within a reasonable distance! I live on a farm out in the sticks, which is great, but not always the handiest.
