Signing off ... Visit the archives

I'm happy & journey continues.
When I started this blog on August 5, 2006, I never thought it would still be around in 2014. In blog years, this thing is a dinosaur! 

As you may have noticed, there hasn't been any new blog posts for several months -- but I was a bad blogger and didn't actually tell you that I was going to take a break from regular updates. So I'll tell you now. I'm taking a break. 

I'm 6.5 years out from my RNY weight loss surgery and I am a success in maintaining my new found healthy lifestyle. I owe my success in large part to this blog. It has made me accountable to myself and my readers, but also it has allowed me to meet so many amazing people who rally together in the WLS community to support and cheer on one another. 

As you know (from the post below this one), I have written a book about my experiences in the weight loss surgery community. Journey to a Healthier Me: A travel guide to physical & emotional well-being after weight loss surgery is on sale at Amazon and some local bookstores - or so I've been told. I hope you buy a copy and tell me what you think. (If you want an autographed copy, just let me know and we can make that happen!)

Even though I don't plan to write more updates here, I will continue to maintain the site and let the archives stand as-is. There is a ton of information, research, resources, and my fair share of ramblings here for you to browse through. Check the list of links on the right column for some of the most popular blog posts. And don't forget to visit the Recipe Index - lots of great yumminess there! If you're a WLS Support Group Leader, please visit the page with topic ideas and links to resources. 

I'm always available by email, feel free to reach out to me anytime. 

For those who might be interested in following my quest for creative inspiration, I invite you to check out my newly-revived blog called {CREATE}. It's a work in progress, but it should be fun. 

If I can leave you with one piece of advice it is this: Celebrate your victories! No matter how big or how small the goals might be, take time to pat yourself on the back for them all - reward yourself! And whenever you achieve a goal, set a new one. And lastly, make a list of your WOW Moments. 

Enjoy your journey to better health. Stop along the way and enjoy the good life and don't get too bogged down in set backs, hurdles, or sharp curves ... just keep moving and you'll be a great success!

  1. I love your blog. Thanks for writing it. I had my RNY shortly after you did. I still refer people here for information.
