My name is Karen and I am a 22 year old, college graduate with my BA in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. At age 18 I visited my bariatric surgeon for the first time. My BMI was 62, I had acid reflux and was pre diabetic. I had gastric bypass surgery on September 17, 2007 3 weeks after I turned 20 years old. I have lost over 170lbs and my BMI is now 30. This blogs purpose is to give all bariatric patients WLS friendly recipes that are delicious, healthy and simple.
