Of the listed surgical processes in the articles above, I only know of one person who has had one of these done.  A few years ago, a friend decided on the lap-band surgery. It was definitely tough for her to adjust to at first. The tiny amount of food her body was now constricted to made it so that she could only eat a handful of cereal (like Apple Jacks) in an 11-hour stretch.  Over time, she went from her starting weight of  around 330 pounds to a size 4 (and I think around 110 pounds). She was very happy with the results!

It’s interesting to see though that taste buds seem to get altered in the process.

What are your thoughts? Have you or anyone you know had one of these procedures done?  Can you confirm that taste buds do seem to change?

Have a great day everyone!

You can help. Malaysia Mystery

If you have some spare time, you can help in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane – from wherever you may be located.   It’s very simple. You log on to the site, click on a satellite picture of the provided map,  and then tag if you see: an oil slick, a raft, plane wreckage, or “other”.   It doesn’t take long (you can view one map in about 10 seconds), so even if you only have 10 minutes to spare, it will help.

I give up. And you should too. What should we give up?  Taking to heart any set advice from the media and/or medical association.  Pretty extreme statement right ? Well, hear me out.  I am annoyed – and I’m sure … Continue reading
