Melting Mama

I've become hooked this week on reading other blogs related to surgical weight loss. There's an abundance of them out there, and each has its own merits. Take Melting Mama, for example.

The site's owner, Beth, is a Bostonian about my age who once topped the scales at more than 300 pounds. What I love most about her blog is its snarky tone. She's had a slew of complications since WLS, and she doesn't shy away from them. I appreciate that about her, because as I've said, this journey isn't all peaches and roses -- and I think more people need to be aware of the risks associated with it.

So, take a sec and check out Melting Mama, and then click back here and tell me what you think.

ChocoPerfection? I'm sweet, edible, melting, and, uh.... fibrous?

Nice blog Tonya!

Melting Mama ~ You left out the fact that you don't cause gastric distress. :0)

I read her almost daily as she is the only post weight loss surgery blogger who posts photos of her kids as much, okay I think I still have her beat, as I do of my daughter. It is nice to see someone else out there who doesn't define themselves soley by their surgery. We all have lives and family, it is nice to read about how this surgery affects those aspects of our lives, not just our weight and food intake. She is also honest about how her life isn't (and this surgery) all roses and butterflies. That is refreshing!
