The key to success in any weight loss journey is not depriving yourself a treat. I had a sweet tooth and cheesecake sounded good at the moment but when I looked up the calorie counts for a single slice of Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake I quickly resigned that thought. A single slice of cheesecake contains 707 calories, 29g of saturated fat, 425 mg of sodium and 62 g of carbohydrates.
I stumbled upon this Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries that hit the spot.
- Beat cream cheese, stevia, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth; spoon into a piping bag or a resealable bag with a corner snipped.
- Fill cavities of cored strawberries with the cream cheese mixture. Dip filled side of strawberries in the crushed unsalted nuts (optional).

THE STRUGGLE ENDS WHEN GRATITUDE BEGINS!!! Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. Life happened about 7 years after lap-band surgery and I regained weight. While in my opinion, I looked OK I felt REALLY bad. My response was to have weight loss revision surgery specifically, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery performed on October 3, 2016. This surgery involves removing 80% of your stomach. That may not be your thing but it’s what helped me! Cheers to 2 years and 93 pounds down.
In my 2 Year “Surgiversary” video, I talk about the Top 4 lifestyle changes made in the past year that helped me to not only maintain my weight loss but to lose an additional 5.4 pounds.
Athleisure is a trend I am celebrating. Since losing 93 pounds after undergoing weight-loss surgery there is no better feeling than rocking a pair of sweatpants in public. I love vibing in a design all my own.
