Start Here

Welcome to, a little blog I created to chronicle my adventures in weight-loss surgery. It’s a lot like a Harry Potter novel, except with fewer house elves and more discussions of laparoscopic procedures.

If you’d like to read the entire blog, start with my first post and move forward. It’s all good stuff and many of the entries are quite short.

Before getting too deep into the blog, though, check out my Nicknames page so you know who’s who and what’s what. Also, here’s a heads up: I like to use footnotes (Footnote 1).

If you don’t want to start at the beginning, I understand. You probably have better things to do, and I’m only slightly offended. I mean, it’s not like I put a lot of work into this or anything (Footnote 2). No, really, if you insist on skipping through, here’s a quick guide of some of my favorite and most meaningful posts:

Other interesting things

1. I told you I like to use footnotes.
2. I speak three languages: English, sarcasm, and guilt trip.
