I want to wear fun clothes and not pick clothes that just fit.
I want to have energy to do anything I want.
I want to be healthy, and not worry about di... Read more

I'm talking about the friend of a distant cousin's neighbor's school chum.
It goes like this:

Well, this didn't count as cardio, but it sure felt like a workout!

I recently attended a WLS support session.
The room was filled with of all kinds of people. Some were still trying to decide to have the surgery, some had their WLS years ago, and some were at every... Read more
I'm taking a break from my WLS blogs because I'm tired and feeling guilty for feeling so selfish.

If you've done something, or neglected to do something, that ... Read more

The first thing that I "cooked" after WLS was baked ricotta.
Lasagna has got to be my favorite food, so when this was a suggestion of something easy to eat, I was quite pleased.
