Crossing the Baltimore Color Run 5K Together!

Crossing the Baltimore Color Run 5K Together!

We did it! After a few months of nerves, excitement, encouragement, doubts and outfit planning- we made it to the Baltimore Color Run together! Among thousands of walkers and runners, we crossed the finish line damp from rain, colored with powder and wearing smiles from ear to ear. Diana – For me personally, I never dreamed that I would enter any event that involved me running! That was just not a thought in my head, but it … Read entire article »

Go Ahead, Sign Up for Bariatric Surgery Today!

It’s important to learn about the process, before beginning the process! What does that mean? It means that once you have committed yourself to the bariatric/weight loss surgery process you do just that, commit! I equate the bariatric process to that of having your first child. While you are pregnant, family and friends will tell you how much your life is going to change. Yes, we know life will change, and it’s not a good decision … Read entire article »

After Weight Loss Surgery I See Myself in a Totally Different Light

After Weight Loss Surgery I See Myself in a Totally Different Light

By now, I am sure you have seen my most recent photo. I have to be honest, I really liked the pictures. That is saying a lot when it comes to me. I could dodge a camera quicker than you can imagine. In my last blog, I referred to steps as a Chinese ancient torture device. Well, the camera was just as offensive! Anytime I saw a picture of myself I would pick out each … Read entire article »

The Little Black Dress: Reaching My Goal After Bariatric Surgery

The Little Black Dress: Reaching My Goal After Bariatric Surgery

The month of May was a great month. My son graduated from high school with many honors. I was very proud! I wanted so badly to wear “that little black dress”. I bought this particular little black dress six years ago. It didn’t fit at the time, but the price was right. I was just drawn to this dress. At that time, I was wearing a size 24/26, and this dress was an 18. We were … Read entire article »

Since having bariatric surgery on January 19, 2012,  I would like to tell you a few of the awesome new things I can do: First, I can cross my legs. WOW!

A Personal Decision: Choosing to Undergo Bariatric Surgery

A Personal Decision: Choosing to Undergo Bariatric Surgery

For as long as I can remember, I have always thought of myself as “fat.” I have really grown to dislike that word. Even in college, when I was 155 pounds, I still felt bigger than all of my peers. I have never considered myself attractive because of my weight. Because I felt embarrassed of my size, I knew that I had to be the “best” mom and the “best” wife. Being kind to others has … Read entire article »

The Evolution of Liver Transplantation

End-stage liver disease is best treated by a liver transplant, a renowned gastroenterologist said at yesterday’s Sinai Hospital Department of Medicine Grand Rounds. Paul Y. Kwo, M.D., is an associate professor of medicine and the medical director of liver transplantation in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Indiana University. His talk at Sinai was made possible by the Ellen Wasserman Lectureship. The good news, according to Dr. Kwo, is that the increased use of the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) gives more weight to disease severity than the patient’s time on the wait list. At Indiana University, the median wait time for a liver transplant is 1.6 months versus 11.3 months nationwide, and the adult survival rate for the organ recipients is at 90.04 percent. Physicians are “inching our way” … Read entire article »
