  1. 8-Month Post-Sleeve Gastrectomy

    The good news is that I'm calm and collected despite a jump up on the scale this week. I finally started my "moon" on Sunday! It was a week over due. So I am hoping it's water gain and next week I will know if Christmas indulging has made a permanent stay on my thighs. Needless to say this past week I start each day with the goal of cutting down on non essential carb loaded foods, like granola or cherry Garcia or pecan pralines. Let's just say that sugar cravings have been getting the ...
  2. Bad mood and just feeling craby 🦀 😶

    I'm just in a funk. I don't know how to get out of it.

    I can't seem to get it together! I was doing great for a few days trying to get back on a routine.

    Yesterday I decided to go get a mani pedi before going to the gym to workout, the nail spa is near gym, but it backfired. I just wanted polish removed and cuticles trimmed and cleaned. It took forever and the guy cut me too close in two fingers (which are still hurting.) I just wanted my nails to breath for a while ...

  3. Idling/Boredom

    Okay gang, just keeping it real.

    As I am waiting to hear from new job prospects, idling and boredom are getting the best of me!

    I had a cup of coffee and found an old bag of mini biscotti in the pantry; I told myself I could have three and next thing I know I was reaching for the last one. There were only six, but still! Self-control was out to lunch.

    I am not beating myself about the biscotti, but then about an hour or two later I ate two beef sticks ...
  4. 7-Month Post-Op update

    Hola from Guate!

    I'm heading home tomorrow after spending two and half glorious weeks in my natal land. It was five years since I was here last, but it feels so much like home. Last time I was here I gained like 10lbs, this time I actually lost a few.

    I had a few "O.ops" eating moments when I had forgotten completely about my surgery and those alarms in my gut just started going off when something just didn't feel right. I ate lots of hearty "caldos" ...
  5. 6-Month Surgery Post-op (plus 10 days)

    I can't believe its been a minute since I last posted, life has a funny way of prioritizing daily routines, and while I do feel some sort of way about not being here to support those new in this journey and old friends, there is a sense of relief that life has normalized with this "new normal" way of life after Gastric Sleeve Surgery for me.

    I have had a busy last busy last month to say the least, but my health and well being have had first priority, that's definitely a ...
