By |2018-12-27T13:31:32-04:00November 17th, 2018|Life After Weight Loss, Product Reviews|0 Comments

It's time for a product review! This month we're going to be talking about the Hair, Skin and Nail Formula from BariLife. Because, I am an honest WLS Blogger; I'll admit that I am remiss in getting this review published. As usual, you have great intentions, then life happens and other things sort of take priority. This product review as slated for October. But, I was suddenly dealing with the passing of [...]

If you follow me on social media networks like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter you probably already know about the Obesity Rebel Challenge. If you don’t follow me on social media, you should, follow the link I just gave you and take care of that. But I want to take a moment out of the Sex Love and Obesity blog series to talk to you about the Obesity Rebel Challenge, why it is important to me [...]

Turn Your Food Journal Into A Food Prep Tool

By |2018-04-15T19:55:53-04:00April 15th, 2018|Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|0 Comments

In last week's blog, Food Journaling Adds Accountability and Success to Weight Loss we talked about your food journal, why it is important and how to get started with MyFitnessPal, the food journal that I recommend to my clients. This week, I want to talk a little bit more about how your food journal can also be your food prep tool. I cannot say this enough. Plan and prep, plan and prep, plan and prep. Planning [...]

Food Journaling Adds Accountability and Success to Weight Loss

By |2018-04-08T10:27:52-04:00April 8th, 2018|Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|0 Comments

“My favorite thing to do is fill out my food journal and track my calories and macronutrients.” I’ve never heard those words come out of a client’s mouth. Let’s start with a basic understanding that nobody likes to keep food journals. They are tedious, time-consuming, and the action in and of itself makes us mindful and accountable for what we are putting into our bodies and let’s face it, while accountability is something many of [...]

We Will Always Have Disney Paris

By |2016-10-15T11:32:48-04:00October 15th, 2016|My Story, Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss, Weight Bias|0 Comments

... We will always have Paris! There is a famous line from a famous movie of which I have never seen: “We’ll always have Paris.” From what I understand it’s a line used in parting as the lead character realizes that the end of their romance is over and he fondly consoles her by reminding her that they will always have good memories. Obviously since I am quoting this movie, I will have [...]

So it’s mid-September. Half Marathon season has officially begun and I have completed two of the eleven half marathons that I have scheduled for this season. One might think that with the experience of having over thirty half marathons under my belt I wouldn’t get nervous about running a half marathon anymore. But if you made that assumption you’d be dead wrong. Let me tell you why… When you run as much as I do, [...]

My Top 5 Favorite Bari Life Protein Bars

By |2016-08-19T19:47:45-04:00August 19th, 2016|My Story, Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss, Product Reviews|0 Comments

So I have had the opportunity to taste several of Bari Life’s protein bars in the last couple of months as they were kind enough to send me a care package of products to try out so that I could tell you all what I think about them. You know me,  am pretty transparent and I tend to be really honest, I won’t tell you that something tastes good if I think it tastes nasty. [...]

Suivez-moi à Paris pour mon prochain demi-marathon

By |2016-08-14T10:10:23-04:00August 14th, 2016|My Story, Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|0 Comments

25 years ago I had the opportunity to go to Paris.  I had taken several years of French classes at the high school level and two of my favorite teachers were leading a group of their students on a 14 day educational trip to France. Traveling internationally was something my Father dreamed of doing but other than the travel that his service in the war afforded him he never really had the opportunity to do [...]

Social Media and YOU – Silence Speaks Louder Than Words

By |2014-02-26T22:15:57-04:00February 26th, 2014|Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|1 Comment

Do you know what my biggest gripe about being a blogger in the WLS and Weight Loss community is? I’m a tell-it-like-it-is sort of girl, so I’m not afraid to come out and say this… I dislike the lack of support. I’m not the only one; I talk to fellow bloggers often who say the same things. Who are disappointed by the responses that they get from within this community. I won’t call attention to [...]
