My First Year Supplementation

Bariatric Advantage

Most WLS patients commonly use supplements from Bariatric Advantage during pre-op and throughout the first few years after surgery. The items I highly used in my first 3 years are the Multi-Vitamins, Calcium Chews, Chewable Iron, and B12.  I am planning to restart BA and interested in trying the Chewable FloraVantage Probiotic and FloraVantage Control Probiotic.

All of the products posted are all items I purchased and use. I do NOT get paid for product mentions by the companies.

The Most Amazing Thing

Not a Quick Fix

My First Year After WLS

Picture on the left was taken on the day before my surgery, April 2010 at 315lbs. Picture on the right was taken in July 2011 at 190lbs.  In the following years I plateaued. Then slowly pick up a few pounds. That lead me to do a podcast to help me reflect on my 1st year progress, hold myself accountable, and put me back on track while giving others a platform to share, support, and motivate each other. Our journey and experiences will inform those who are considering WLS too.

No BS. I am Hooked on RX Bars

A few months back, I saw RXBar on Instagram a lot. I decided to try them out and now I am hooked. It has a chewy fruit texture to it, so be ready to have it stick to your teeth a bit, but 1 bar is quite filling for me.  I love Blueberry, Mixed Berry, and Maple & Sea Salt. If you'd like to try them too, links are below the video.  Let me know what you think of them.
