Protein shake a day

My new resolution is to try to have a shake a day, or at least some sort of solid protein (ex. protein bar, shake, no carbs…)

Today’s shake was this creation, and I must say, I love it.

Protein shake of the day:
Lime Berry Cream Shake

1 c. skim milk (or water, soy whateves)
1 scoop vanilla fusion (or whatever protein powder you like)
1/4 c. frozen berry blend
1 tsp. of SF lime jello mix
1 tbsp. of SF cheesecake mix
1 package of true lime (or fresh lime zest if you are fancy)
ice cubes galore

Splenda or whatever you use to sweeten it up a touch

blend, top with SF whip cream if you like (or whatever you choose!) 

This one is tart, but so good.  It masks all taste of protein in my opinion. 

In other news, today the mister and I went to the Buffalo Soup-fest.  It was delicious and filled with tasty tasty soups.  Most of them were of the low-carb type even!  I tried a lentil one, a vicychoisse (??), Dijon Carmelized Onion, Polish Sausage and Kraut, Zuppa Toscana, and of course, Chicken Wing.  I could have tried to pack more in, but it got so crowded in there, we bailed.  Nice turn out I thought though! 

Anywho – happy shaking :)


  1. mmm, that sounds yummy!! I should try this, I definitely need more protein in my diet.

  2. Nice!!! :) I wish I knew bout that soup event! I love soup!

    Take care,

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.
