About Me

  • Biography
    Like many others, I've been overweight almost my entire life. I looked into gastric bypass back around 2010 but my insurance didn't cover it. Now, years later, my current insurance covers the procedure and I'm sooooo ready for it!

  1. Finally caved and bought some BariatricPal stuff from the store to try during my post-op liquid phase. Ended up ordering:

    • BariatricPal Protein Soup - Chicken Bouillon
    • Celebrate Meal Replacement Shakes - Tomato Soup / 5 Single Serve Packs
    • Celebrate Meal Replacement Shakes - Cinnamon Roll / 5 Single Serve Packs
    • BariatricPal Protein Smoothie - Aloha Mango 
    • BariatricPal Protein Soup - Broccoli and Cheddar 
    • BariatricPal Protein Soup - Cream Of Chicken 

    Wanted something different sweetness wise for shakes, and have been missing a bit of savory so hopefully these soups/broths are good! 

    Also have my surgery clearance appointment with my primary doc today after work, so excited! I did my pre-op testing at the hospital last Saturday, and called them on Tuesday morning to make sure that they had sent my results to my primary doc for this appointment. Still crazy to think the surgery is next Friday :)

      Wow, you're so close!! How exciting! I plan on buying some of the same lol. I want the soup variety pack and I'm dying to try the Aloha Mango smoothies--they sound so yummy! Let me know what you think when you try them. :) I've got to admit that some of the hot chocolate is also on my list ;)

      I'll give my taste reviews for sure! Yeah the aloha mango one had some good reviews, so I figured I'd give it a go. And I have an electric kettle that will make having the hot liquids easy and mess free :) Great for making my decaf instant coffee for my shakes, too.

      The chicken noodle is yummy!!! Also, the hot chocolate is good too. If you are a coffee drinker I can share something with you. Make your coffee add the Hot Chocolate drink and whisk. YUM YUM Plus you get protein in it. A win-win in my book. Good Luck and keep us in the know.
