I love my Airfryer. It’s a kitchen tool that takes away so much effort! I have a double basket one so I can cook different items, different temperatures and times but the smart little gadget will make sure they are ready at the same time!

Sneezing after gastric surgery….. ouch!
Oh no one warned me. I wish I knew. That’s sneezing would be so burning painful after surgery too. It started with a sniffle, grew to full on sneeze.

Weightloss with surgery?
So I’m often asked if I could have lost the weight without the surgery. Without a doubt yes! IF I had known what I know now. I had Bypass surgery so what they did was take a small egg sized slice from the top of my stomach, route some intestine to it to create andContinue reading “Weightloss with surgery?”
This journey is still a struggle. From knowing I’ll never be able to eat a full size meal to surgery problems and hair loss, there are pitfalls I wish I’d known prior to going through with it.

Eeek, honest RNY post.
Off to see my new Bariatric surgeon who has been assisting me in the UK, Leeds, with the post operative issues I’ve been having. To say I’m nervous is an understatement.
