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…

the report is in

I had my six week check up yesterday, and everything looks good he said. The incision pain is best case, a small tear where the sewed me back up, the worst case, a hernia. He said it is too soon to tell, and chances are that it will just heal up on its own in about a month. I am down 32 lbs since surgery, for a grand total of 54 lbs. DA-UHM! I am feeling pretty good of course, just this occasional pain BLOWS.

In other news, I have to go back to work on Wednesday. Blargh! I am pretty much not looking forward to this, but alas, time to go back to working for the man. I wonder how much has changed? Should be entertaining no doubt.

My beautiful friend Jenn is getting married tomorrow, so I better straighten my 'fro out and get moving, cuz I am the official page turner for the pianist. Later kids ;)

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.
