My selfies need less headroom. My husband would be disappointed in this framing.

The Health Centered Life

I have struggled with my weight and relationship with food all my life. At the time of my gastric bypass surgery in 2006, I was 360, and my frame just couldn't take it any more. I lost 210 pounds, but have been plagued with complications, resulting in a nearly fatal illness in 2010. What I have learned about health, nutrition, and the art of being happy in the past three years is nothing short of amazing. Each and every day is a blessing, even when it is a struggle.

I was thinking about you this morning and wondering how things are going. Then I started imagining you as owning your very own vegan cafe and wondering just what you would do to get to that point. And then I started thinking that you should take all of your blogs with recipes and compile them into a funny and delicious-making recipe book to give out to all your friends and relatives at the holidays. See, my mind just runs like that.

Anyway, I hope things are going well. I'm in a bit of a pensive place, avoiding SP and all the mind-numbing obsessiveness it can foster. But I had to pop in and tell you about my imaginary career path I envisioned for you today. LOL. Take care, my friend!

Good morning, and thank you for the flowers goodie the other day! Goodie for goodies, I say! (Or, I would say, if I were a nerd...oh, wait, I am!). I hope you're having a great week and that things are looking up for you!

Have you been in the kitchen lately creating new and delightful things? I thought I'd read about a possible food blog from the Amazing Mind of Amanda. Is that up as a separate site? I haven't done diddly squat on my web site for months. Geez.

OK, to work! Hope you have a great day!
