The BariQueen

The title Bari-Queen does not come easy, so you can trust I know what I’m talking about here. I understand the struggles that is drinking and eating constantly, but never at the same time, and definitely not grazing. I understand the thrill of being taken off that daily pillbox of meds. I understand the pure satisfaction that comes with finding the perfect protein shake. I understand the feeling of accomplishment that follows making a high protein, low carb, low sugar meal that anyone else would ever dare to eat and actually — gasp— enjoy. I understand the excitement of a new size. I understand the life change that happens with bariatric surgery and how it is not easy, but so worth taking on the challenge.
