Thanks very much for your kind comment. Things are going very well indeed, one year + after my RYNGB op. Part of a peer support group at St. Joe's and doing some orientation talks to prospects. Weight at 205, would like to break 200 but not important medically, as everything is great in that respect.

Welcome home Peetie...fellow teacher...fellow Canadian!!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for.
Take care....and keep in touch!
