Starbucks swap-a-roo

I’m envious of you protein drinking chicks (and dudes of course) out there, so I am trying to get my creativity on with the infamous pre and post op necessity!

I have been sick lately, just achy and congested, chapped face, etc…looking super hot…LOL…so I haven’t been eating a whole hell of a lot lately. 

Today when I got home from work I thought I would have a shake to get my protein up, and I decided on a Mint Chocolate “Frappacino”. 


I bought myself this fancy double lined cup from the Buxs before Christmas, and I must tell you, I love it.  It comes with this fancy straw and a “sealed” lid.  The shake recipe:

Libby’s Mint Chocolate “Frappacino”

8 oz. Skim Milk

1 scoop Click

1 scoop Mint Chocolate Bariatric Fusion or SEI Ultimate Chocolate Chip Mint

A decent size squirt of Smuckers Sugar Free Chocolate Sundae Syrup

5-6 ice cubes

It turned out very creamy, and quite good.  I topped mine off with a little whippage and a bit more SF Chocolate syrup that didn’t really want to come out of the bottle too well…


I’m off to sit under a quilt and sip my shake…Happy Wednesday Friends!


  1. Sounds delish! I am all about anything that includes Click and I love the cup. Will Starbucks refill it?

  2. Not sure if they will...hmmm...they should for the amount of $$ I drop there weekly! Isn't Click the best?!

  3. Sounds awesome Libby. I love mint and chocolate. I just might have to make this.

The ugly truth

The truth is...I'm in recovery. The other truth is emotionally, I'm a disaster.

I haven't written in here because the truth is, losing libby was originally about weight loss surgery and how much weight I've weight I lost. In the past few months, more emotionally damning crap has happened to me, my family, my parent(s), my brother, and many people in my ever shrinking circle.

I am an addict.
I am well educated.
I live in the suburbs.
I have a child.
I have serious mental health issues.

I tell you all of the ugly in an attempt to hold myself accountable for the things I have done, the things I have put my family through, and most important...what I have done to myself.

If you would have told me five years ago or so that I would be unemployed, filing for disability, and doing medication assisted treatment for addiction...I would have laughed in your face and said you were crazy.

The truth is, like many other Americans, I'm not the only one.

How did this…

Much a blog about nothing…

So I haven’t written in a while.  Losing Libby hasn’t lost in about a year now.  Haven’t really gained either, but regardless, life definitely happened.  I recently watched the beautiful Eggy on the Ricki Lake Show.  She embodies what most of us feel post gastric bypass.  That there is still this obese person even if your not as obese as you once were.  It was a good wake up call to me, proving that my job of losing weight is not over, nor will it ever be probably. I’m getting older and I can feel it.  I feel old sometimes.  Kind of like, who is this 75 year old woman kind of old.  I need to move my ass more.  So the next phase of Losing Libby is going to be about losing my bad attitude about exercise.  God help me.
Hello my friends now from the other side. The sober side that is... This is going to be long. And in parts so I apologize now but I think it's important to get the whole story. I had wls in July 2009. My highest weight was 398 lbs and I remember praying that I wouldn't go over 400... That or maybe my scale didn't. Either way I could not see a 4. Or regardless of a moderately successful career, higher education, and steady boyfriend (now husband) I would have rather killed myself. Looking back at that statement I should have known then that troubles lie ahead. I weighed 180 lbs when I graduated from high school in 2000. I was well liked. Fairly smart. I was actually the fricken homecoming queen and not out of sympathy BC I was the fat girl that got picked on as a kid, but truly bc I was popular and well liked. To this day the hometown still likes me... But truth be told I never liked me. I went away to college and ate. A lot. I was introduced to Wegmans Pittsford. The …
