• A Girl Needs Options: Protein

    August 29, 2019 by

    One vital part of the pre-op and post-op diet when having any bariatric procedure is protein. It can get old real quick if you only have a couple options!

  • Today Is A Good Day For A Good Day

    August 21, 2019 by

    Self care comes in many different forms. The cheapest and easiest – ME TIME! Life is busy, draining, exciting, and downright crazy sometimes.

    I’ve only waited for this day for a year and a half…and it finally came! I didn’t sleep a wink the night before surgery. I was ready {check out the cheesy smile}! I registered with the hospital at 8:30 am and went to the waiting room on the surgery floor. It was only a couple… Read more

    August 20, 2019 by

    Well, I am about a week into this blogging thing and let me just say…it ain’t easy. Yes, I did research. Yes, I knew it would not just create itself. But prior to starting I had this well-laid plan and had a list of literally like 300 topics that I figured I would just type… Read more
