Hello from Old Forge, NY! I first fell in love with this magical part of the Adirondack Park in February 2008. Six years ago, Pat proposed to me while standing on a bridge over the Moose River. Five years ago, we were married in town and danced the night away alongside that same river. I … Continue reading Summertime

I know that it's been a while since I've checked in. Mostly it's because things have been pretty status quo and I feel weird writing the same things repeatedly. I am still losing weight at a steady clip! The end. We bought a fancy scale that also measures muscle mass, water, bone density and calculates … Continue reading Weighing in
Before I begin, has anyone watched Shrill on Hulu? I had NO CLUE that the morning after pill is only effective for women who weigh less than 175lbs! Guys, that is a pretty major piece of info that should be out there. Don't you think? Anyway! Let's talk a little about self esteem. It's been … Continue reading Get it girl!
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Pat and I adopted a puppy last week! Maisy is 25 lbs of pure love ...with a dash of mischief. Does this relate to sleeve surgery? Is this just a ploy to spam you all with puppy pictures? Well, yes... but follow along! I … Continue reading Puppy Fever
The other morning, I took a wide tooth comb to my head in the shower. As I was combing conditioner through my hair, I noticed more than the usual one or two strands left on the comb. I felt the slightest twinge of panic, followed by a quick mental run down of how much protein … Continue reading Standstill
This past Monday, I had a three month follow up appointment at Dr. Kurian’s office. Her NP (Nurse Practitioner), Jessica basically handled this appointment. I got to the office with a few minutes to spare. Since the actual month marker is this upcoming Sunday, I didn't even look at the scale. When Jennifer told me … Continue reading Three months in…
Today marks two months since surgery. To be perfectly honest, I have been dreading the self imposed weigh in. A few not so flattering things you should know about me: I am a perfectionist. I am my own worst critic. I am competitive. (Pat will not play board games with me!) By going public about … Continue reading Pobody’s nerfect
I hope everyone has been having a good holiday season. It's been really nice to spend time with friends and family, sleep in and watch a ton of Netflix. Since so many people are home for the holidays, it's meant eating at restaurants a bunch. I'm still navigating those waters with trepidation. It's hard. Even … Continue reading Dining out
I should officially be fired from blogging. Sorry about that. This is why I never kept a diary or a journal as a kid. Writing this over my lunch break at work. The guilt is real people. Things have been humming along. I had a one month follow up appointment on December 3rd. At that … Continue reading World’s Worst Blogger
Luckily, I'm right smack in the middle of mushy / puréed foods, so Thanksgiving was not too difficult to navigate. My in laws and my parents live about 25 minutes from each other, so Pat and I like to split this holiday. This year, we had dinner at my in laws' house. My mother in … Continue reading Thanksgiving
