ASMBS: Female Sexlife Better after WLS

On June 29, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

As many of you know, the ASMBS had their Annual Convention in Las Vegas last week and now the journals are starting to pour out a ton of information from that meeting.  I’ve been slacking of late, but I’m going to start putting in the things that they’ve churned out from the meeting as it directly relates to the WLS community.  Maybe not nutrition-wise, but still.

A post my father wouldn’t want to read, I’m sure..

ASMBS: Family support helps weight loss

As many of you know, the ASMBS had their Annual Convention in Las Vegas last week and now the journals are starting to pour out a ton of information from that meeting.  I’ve been slacking of late, but I’m going to start putting in the things that they’ve churned out from the meeting as it directly relates to the WLS community.  Maybe not nutrition-wise, but still.

I don’t think it will come as any surprise that support is critical — no matter where you get it.

A reminder to check out your surgeon…

I REALLY hate it when stories like this come up as a reminder, but there is yet another one.

Boston?

On June 24, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

Would you be interested in a Boston WLS event run by MM and yours truly in late 2011?

If so, please go here and fill out the form.  While it looks like you’re buying a ticket for an event?  You aren’t.  It’s simply a poll.

This is not a guarantee, but simply a question as to whether people would come.  It’s still in the “do we want to do this?” stage.  If there’s enough interest to cover costs, then we will proceed.  But we’ve got to get enough peeps saying “YES!” before we commit vast amounts of time, money, resources to something that no one will want to come to.  Neither of us take failure or rejection particularly well.  Type A’s, we are.

So would you come?

Wonder Iron?

I keep referencing this from the Iron Disorders Institute, and I am simply wanting to put this here so I can find it more readily and to close out one of my 43 tabs currently open in the 7 windows.  Hey, this is how my brain works!
