Healthy Candy Corn!!

Tis the season - for candy!
So many sweet treats in the 'fun size' - but when you jump on the scale - not so fun.   Here's a list  (from  of some of the favorite 'fun size' candies and their calorie count.  It may be low but remember - when they are little pieces we end up eating more.  I can easily inhale 4 little Snickers and few Kit-Kats in less than 30-minutes.  (dont judge).

So..... check this out...  a cute healthy way to enjoy the holiday and not pack on the lbs or calories.
(big love to for this cute fruit cocktail).  For an even healthier version - try (greek) yogurt instead of the whipped cream.  

Be sure to share some of your healthy holiday recipes with me - i will repost here and give you mad love!

Cookie for one!

Sometimes you just want ONE cookie.  
I know some of you think I'm crazy - but hear me out.  
When you are trying to lose weight - a bag of cookies in the house is dangerous!  For me - I cant just eat one.  I sneak a few more.  and a few more.  and then maybe one more after that.  
So I found this recipe on line (Melissa at No2Pencil)  for ONE COOKIE in a cup.  
It was easy, delish and satisfying.  I'm not saying I didn't want another cookie later - lol!   But I didnt have a bag to dig into - so its win win!  

Anyway - here is the recipe and some pictures I took along the way.  

So Yummy!  Enjoy!

I've always wanted to do this!

These jeans are size 18.  
Before I had weight loss surgery - they fit me pretty tight.  
Even with Spanx underneath.  
I should have been wearing a size 20.  

Now in wearing a size 14 of the same brand (Old Navy Rock Star) and they are getting loose around the waist and booty!  Sweet!  Hello size 12 - I'm coming for ya!  

I have already lost 65-lbs thanks to weight loss surgery with Beverly Hills Physicians.  
I had the gastric sleeve, click here for the details - but they take about 80-percent of your stomach out.  So I'm not hungry and I get full fast. These jeans don't lie!!  

If you are thinking about weight loss surgery - if you have questions about finance and the procedure... you should come to the seminar/open house.  It's happening May 10th at the Rancho Cucamonga offices.  
Meet me, meet Dr Misra and find out which procedure is right for you.  And if you've had something done before and it didn't work - they do revisions too.  
I hope you an make it - I'd love to meet you.  Call 1-800-788-1-4-1-6 to reserve your spot.

it fits. #smallvictories

When I was heavier - one of the things I missed the most was wearing some jewelry.  Like this beautiful bangle bracelet my parents gave me when i graduated from college in 1987.
Well, I found it in an jewelry box and cant believe it!  it fits - with room to spare.
 #happy #smallvictories  #grateful
Thank you Beverly Hills Physicians

no really. i'm stuffed.

I talk all the time about how I'm not hungry anymore.  Not as much as i used to be before I had weight loss surgery with Beverly Hills Physicians.  I had the gastric sleeve procedure.  Dr Misra removes 80-percent of my stomach.  That part also happens to house the hormone that triggers hunger - So while I'm eating less, I'm just not as hungry.   

This is a typical meal for me.  This is a southwest chicken dish (from Fresh & Easy) and some steamed asparagus.  After a few (carefully chewed) bites - I'm full.  Really.  I'm STUFFED!   
So of course I have a lot of leftovers in the fridge.. lol!  
(This piece of chicken can last 3-4 days for me)  I'm a cheap date now... lol!  
And trust me when I say I used to tear this chicken up before the surgery!  I mean - seriously!  
I would eat ALL of mine and start looking at my husbands from across the table.  lol  (you gonna eat that?)
