Well hello there

Just a quick update to let everybody know I’m still alive and kicking. Haven’t tried any new or exciting recipes lately but I do want to do some posts/product reviews about some food I found that is delish. I’m also going to make some banana protein mini muffins later today (probably today) from The World According to Eggface. I’ll let ya’ll know how they come out.

The first edition of the newsletter is almost done. If you haven’t subscribed and want to, there’s still time. I promise I won’t spam you. Most editions will be once a month, but there may occasionally be twice a month at the very most. I’m also looking for folks that want to contribute recipes or their own success stories. If there’s a specific topic you guys want to see covered, hit me up in comments or email, I’ll make it happen.

On the 18th, I’ll be two months out on my surgery. I’ll try to remember to do a post that day with an update and my thoughts. So far, however, I’ve lost 20 pounds post surgery. It’s hard for me not to compare myself to others who had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy around the same time I did and have lost more weight, but I stop and remind myself that I have never been able to lose 20 pounds in less than two months ever in my life. It helps to remind myself we’re all individuals, with our own individual metabolisms, too.

So, keep on rocking on you guys and I’ll get those other posts up soon.



I’m starting a monthly/occasionally bi-monthly newsletter. The newsletter itself will be weight loss surgery centered, with a focus on the VSG since that’s what I had. There’s a link to it in the side bar, but if you are interested in subscribing, you can click this link:
