Everything Bagel Chicken Dip

I have been loving the everything bagel pretzels as a snack even though I shouldn’t be eating them.So I love petite, sweet peppers, and I have decided to use those instead as my chips.

I blended the following with a fork:

3/4 a brick of cream cheese, 1 can of chicken (drained), 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire, and 4 tablespoons of everything bagel seasoning mix.

This is creamy and savory…with the sweetness of the peppers…I am so excited to have this for lunch.

Blessings.

Crown

I am beginning a Couch to 5K program this morning. I am certain this will kill me. The old me.

I am excited for the future with this program, and the paths it will open for me.

I am not a runner. Never have been. But I want to get back in the habit of exercising. I know that my body isn’t going to like it at first…maybe never…but it will be good for my mind, body and soul.

What things do you do to stay in the healthy mindset? How are your New Year goals going this January?

Blessings!

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.

Queen

Being a large woman for the majority of my life, Queen’s “Fat Bottom Girls” is almost an anthem for me.  I feel empowered when I hear this song or I should say when I sing along with this song.

This cartoon caption made me giggle. What song is your anthem or inspiration?

Blessings!

Knees

So after a 115 pound weight loss:

Apparently per my rheumatologist I am no longer bone on bone with my knees!  I am to take it easy with exercise, and to build up the muscle around my knees, but for the most part, I can start doing things I want to do as long as my body allows it.

Dancing, yoga, jogging—really anything I want to try.

2 Years ago yesterday…was my gastric sleeve surgery and while I am not at my lowest weight I am no where near my heaviest! I have had some regain but no guilt. I am so very grateful for my path here.

So…blessings today and always!
