One thing I’ve discovered about myself since having Bariatric Surgery is that I can no longer trust my tongue. Things that I use to love, I now hate. Things I used to hate I now love.
Every year it gets better and they grow bigger!
We were going to an engagement party and of course I wanted to be cute. It was the start of fall the weather was nice, why not?
You attract the energy that you give off. Spread good vibes. Think positively and enjoy life. I never thought fashion would be a thing for me. Especially after losing 95 pounds. But all I do is crave new style, new flare, new fabrics, and sex appeal since becoming this new me. This bawdy is giving…

Of the various options for weight loss surgery, I chose to undergo the Sleeve Gastrectomy. I first heard about weight loss surgery after the birth of my oldest son back in 2004. I watched his godmother transform from 400+ pounds to like 180 something over the course of a year and half. She has managed…
Date night is suppose to be exciting and full of fun. Thrilling to say the less for those who enjoy adventure. I have always been a little iffy about going on dates because… well it was always a struggle trying to find something to wear, or doing my hair, or trying to find comfortable shoes….
