Things I can do now, that I could not do before losing weight

At the beginning of July I had a great time camping with my daughter and husband. I was able to haul the gear, set up the tent by myself, enjoy canoeing on the lake- not to mention, I actually fit comfortably in my sleeping bag!

All things that would have been difficult, embarrassing or impossible before I lost the weight.

Enjoying my coffee (with protein of course) our first morning in camp

Dinner for my daughter and I on the first night

Splitting kindling with my rubbish little hand axe

I am very vain - had daughter take this picture in the morning so that I could see how my hair looked!



  1. It looks like you had a great time!

  2. Looks like at blast! The food looks great, and i'm impressed you could even swing that big 'ol axe!!! Love camping!

  3. Congratulations! I will never be a camper, but since my sleeve surgery I am able to enjoy hiking like never before. Sadly, I will always want an actual bed at the end of the day. Happy rest of your life to YOU!

  4. HI!!!!! I can not tell you how glad I am to find your blog! I am three weeks out from having had the VSG done. I'm looking for others who've had the surgery done. Congrats on the camping trip (although I see this was a couple months ago lol)

  5. OMG! Your blog has been very encouraging and I am looking forward to my VSG! I just wish I could move you to NC to show me how you made all those wonderful dishes. I guess I will try to follow your recipes! :-) Congratulations on your healthful journey!

  6. Hi I just found your blog on the weight lose site , and really like it. I'm having surgery in Victoria Dec 6 2011 and have started a blog as well, I love your recipes and will be back to use them when I can eat again

  7. You look wonderful!!!!!!!! :)

  9. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me dinner because I stumbled upon it for him...
    lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this issue here on your blog.
