  1. A Year Without a Turkey Trot

    I got the bad news on Friday that I couldn't run my annual Turkey Trot this year due to dental surgery I had. I was so disappointed and at first I wasn't sure why. Then I realized running is part of the "new me." I started running before surgery, but it's been an important part of becoming a healthy person.

    Here's what I wrote about it on my blog, Down the Scale:

  2. Time to Get Mindful Again

    With the food holidays fast approaching, it's time to get mindful about eating. After I inhaled a cookie yesterday and felt horrible, I wrote a blog post about it and what I need to do the next few months.

    No matter how far out you are from surgery, I think it's essential to always be aware of what and WHY you're eating. Here's my latest post:

  3. Really, No One Watches You in Boot Camp

    I used to hate group exercise classes before surgery, but now I'm getting used to them again. Here's my latest post about doing my first boot camp since surgery:

    Do you feel better about exercising after surgery?

    Take care,

  4. Best Mother's Day Gift

    I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day! One of my favorite gifts are handmade cards from my children. My daughter wrote a wonderful poem in which she called me a runner. I'm so happy my children see me as a healthy person! Here's the whole poem on my Instagram account:

  5. Faster than a Slug!

    From my Down the Scale Instagram account:

    As I was making my way home on this morning's run, I jumped over a slug who was just moseying along. My run was slow, but the slug reminded me that any run is better than none! #gastricsleeve #willrunforcoffee #lifeaftervsg #running #downthescale #fasterthanaslug

    The cartoon I posted is there and also on my Facebook page:
