what is a blog? and how to make a comment !


I am so thrilled  to have a blog. 

A blog is a web log or online interactive journal or diary for sharing photos and information. 

I have been wanting one for quite some time. A few weeks ago I visited my son, Brent, in Savannah and he helped me get it going. I’m so glad my children know more about computers than I do. I didn't  grow up in the computer age and know practically nothing about them. But I am teachable…I think! With Millie and Brent’s help, I am learning as I go along, and I am amazed even at myself.

My son, Brent, designs logos and other graphics, he created the logo “miles to go”.    Some of the photos on the blog came from my daughter Millie, she is a professional photographer.  You can find their website and blogs at under “Commercial Break” at the side of this page.

I would also appreciate your feedback. You can contact me by email, ask questions or share your concerns. If I don’t’ know the answer, I will find it in my library, internet, or I will contact Dr. Miles' office for the answer. We will learn together! So let me hear from you!

This blog is my gift to you.

…here’s how easy it is to respond…

Contact: if you wish to make a contact, it will come directly to my e-mail address. You will find this option under the “navigation” section at the top of the page, on the side. Just fill out the info and clink “submit”.

Thanks so much for your support…so let me know you’re out there, what you think and that you are reading along.

I don’t know how I have never come across your site, but it is awesome! I am also 6 years out; started at 274; however, I never got to goal (150) and gained about 30 lbs. It seems this is where my weight wanted to reset at but not where I want to be. I have been 205 for a year and a half now and don’t know how to lose this. In the last 2 months I have stayed away from all sugar, pasta, rice, bread, eating protein first then veggies. I did sit down to look at how I got into this mess and it was grazing and not exercising. The only thing left to help is exercise more but due to a back injury I haven’t done much, so I’m thinking once that in incorporated it should start to move again. Any suggestions on what else I am not doing right. By viewing your site I do believe I am was over eating. I don’t feel like I have been, but I eat quite a bit more then you. My meat portions are closer to 3 or 4 oz. ounces depending on what the meat is. I purchased small bowls to pack my lunch in and when it gone I’m done. I am better at what I consume for a snack now. Others have recommended the 5 day pouch test but I don’t think that is necessary since I do fill quickly; and the carb monster is not a problem. I think my pouch I just fine. I just hadn’t been paying attention until a few months back. I get in about 1/2 gal of fluids in per day; I still struggle to get more in. I think I am doing everything right at this point, but just want to be sure. I am too embarrassed to see my surgeon; I feel like a failure and really wanted to go to him once this started to move again. I still try to get in at least one protein shake a day. Is there anything else you thing I should be doing?? I really appreciate any advice you would like to give.

Thanks Susan M
