Funny story had a "phone friend" someone I never met but talked to all the time for work related issues, anyway one day after I watched a marathon of some show on discovery or some Chanel about weight loss surgery and a nursing home type place specializing in the morbidly obese who can't walk on their own.  Anyway she mentioned she was gone for all those weeks due to bypass surgery.  I said oh how much weight have you lost.... Uncomfortable pause she said a number and then after I hung up I realized it was a coronary bypass not gastric!  Oops!  I called her back and apologized and explained my morbid obesity mArathon.

The vomiting is common for people who try to eat like they did before the procedure.  Diarrhea would be a complication of the shortened go tract.  For people who have had colon resection so short bowel syndrome is a common problem, so I imagine a smaller stomach would be similar

I know several people who've had a variety of weight loss surgery options.  For the most part those who kept eating like they did before the surgery stayed morbidly obese- they had some loss- maybe 50 lbs but after that it stalled and they didn't look like they had surgery at all.

there were 2 who followed the rules of eating strictly and lost a lot of weight and kept it off.  they were never really ideal but did get out of the morbid to just obese.

I have Sirius / Xm and they are having a special until June 2nd all inactive radios are active again until then.  They usually do this around Memorial Day to get people to re subscribe 

 http://www.siriusxm.com/

 I subscribe to the car and also Internet and phone apps.  I pay for all access so for the whole year it's 250 which for me is a great deal, because I listen to Sirius Xm over 12 hours a day home and work and gym.  I don't have satellite or cable TV because I have the radios .

The bill number to repeal is the same as the bill that reinstated it all those years ago.

I'm from Nebraska and Ernie Chambers and he's done some great things for his constituents for decades.  Being a black atheist in a conservative state, he has won reelection with ease, because he isn't afraid of speaking the truth

I just saw this article 

The funeral procession of about 100 cars was being escorted by a uniformed traffic escort on their way to to Forest Lawn Cemetery where Sandra Louise Behn-Capel was to be buried. According to her daughter, Rachel Behn-Humphrey, the officer said the procession was traveling too slow.

It is just too sad that because so many of those women who were assaulted were minority and trying to break into the business, he was able to get away with it for so long because they were afraid to report it.  

Seemed to me it wasn't until the white women started speaking up the others were then taken seriously

I took my first test in the 70s so I imagine laws have changed.  

I did find articles that show laws vary state to state, but did find this article on the lack of respect

I had a boss who had a severe egg allergy and she freaked anytime someone had mYonaisse near her food, but even as the owner of the company she didn't ban us from having egg salad or mayo on our sandwiches

Well, a baby's gotta do what a baby's gotta do and they can't typically schedule a c-section if they don't like the look of the vaginal secretions they're about to encounter on their way into the world.

But after they're here...

I'm sure you're right about certain bacteria being necessary and helpful. I think that is confirmed science.  I just imagined a baby nursing from sweat glands and it was a most unpleasant thought.

 

Yea sucking sweat is disgusting, but the way it actually happens is the mom secretions so unnoticed go from glands to tit.  I just now wonder if antipersperant should be discontinued for women who nurse.

What about the vaginal secretions from a normal birth, but it is what makes us healthy and puts those healthy bacteria into the body

This article from Jan of this year shows that some kids were cured of their peanut allergy with probiotic therapy.  

I believe a lot of our current allergic reactions has a lot to do with our general environment and chemical additives in so many foods, and even GMO and pesticides.

the study showed children born by c section have less healthy gut bacteria, and children bottle fed too miss out on the important bacteria they would get from moms sweat glands.  

 

Banning something from someone's school due to a few kids allergies isn't right.    What about shellfish allergies?  I have a coworker whose husband accidentally kissed her after he ate some shrimp and luckily she had her epi pen.

I thought there were some reports of this feud with both these jerks having been going on for quite sometime, and possible police reports and stalking complaints by Apperson against Zimmerman

Congrats to your nephew!  Best wishes for him to achieve that goal, but if he doesn't fuel his workouts he could easily get injured or sick and then unable to compete. 

I think nut butters would be a great way to add some healthy calories and fat.  Peanut butter sandwiches , peanut butter added to chocolate milk, or a protein powder with whole milk

nut butter on apples.  

Whole milk in abundance, chocolate milk is a great post workout recovery drink.

i'll bet all of those fires were set by young black drug addicts, right?

I was married to a firefighter for 26 years.  My oldest daughter is engaged to a firefighter who is now on disability for firefighting related injuries.  

The topic of this thread is about a town in flames.  I posted that link just to show that firefighters are just as likely as a police officer [to die] in the line of duty. 

Firefighters are much less likely than police officers are to kill people though. They've got that goin' for 'em.

True.  I remember back in the 80s the fire department started uniforms to look less like police because it wasn't uncommon for firefighters being shot at when responding to scenes
