Roasted Veggie Mania

I just roasted a big pan of vegetables.  Saturday is Farmer's Market day, and I wanted to roast what was left over from last week. Basically a couple onions and bell peppers. I added a few things from this week as well, including a whole bulb of garlic (stinky but delish) and a leek. Random? Yes. Delicious? Most definitely yes.

I used Wegman’s Basting Oil to coat my veggies with.  A little bit goes a long way, and makes all the difference.  It is a great product.  I feel lucky to live near Wegman’s, but am sure jealous of all you guys that have Trader Joe’s near you. 

Anywho some food porn for your Saturday:

Don’t mind my ghetto baking sheets.  If you’re invited to my wedding – you can guess why I registered for new ones!

I kicked my bottle of basting oil so I decided to make my own since I have my Aerogarden working overtime:

I got this nifty bottle at Ikea and have never used it.  I chopped up a crap load of lemon basil, Genovese basil, oregano, and thyme.   Added a bit of chopped garlic and used a combo of EVOO and canola oil.  Not too shabby looking eh??  New Aero with 4 kinds of basil.  Nice. 

These look tasty eh?  Oh…don’t mind the stevia packet.

You ask – Libby…how do you have time to be roasting vegetables and cleaning fruit, and playing 39487329852 hours of Farmville on Facebook? (BTW – Add me if you haven’t!)

This guy is the best guy.  I attempted to sneak up on my soon to be husband sorting out our laundry, but he caught me and said, “What are you trying to put a picture of me doing laundry up on your blog!?”  Damn…foiled again.  He’s a keeper ladies!

So that’s my Saturday so far.  I have to finish up the wedding invites today, and clean, but other than that it is Farmville and maybe hitting up the GYM.  I would like to get rolling back on the Couch to 5K program that I started around Christmas time and now it is April.  Holy hell when did April get here??


Anywho one last picture.  This is my niece Taelor Jean:

She’s sassy and cute and well… I love her!  The end!

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 …
