my name is jude.  this blog will tell the story of my weight loss surgery, and chronicle my post-op progress.

i will post very scary and embarrassing things.  numbers. pictures. measurements. they will make you say omg.  god knows, i’ve been saying omg about them for years.

i will swear. you have been warned.

i will take pictures of my meals and post recipes so that you can see what and how much i’m eating after surgery.  seeing these types of blog posts helped me a great deal when i was learning about wls.

i will ramble on about my day to day stuff, ad nauseum. the joys and the oys, as they say.

i will try to reinforce that weight loss surgery is nothing to be ashamed of.  it is not an easy way out,  or a magical solution.  by having surgery, i’m being given a tool for weight loss. but the onus is on me to make wise decisions regarding my food and exercise, for the rest of my life.  the tool is only as effective as i choose to use it.

i feel like i’ve been given a clean slate.  i’m very optimistic.

  • I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
