Physically, I'm half the woman I used to be, but as a result of my journey with gastric bypass surgery I've gained a lot. I'm Julia, and this blog is about the miles I've traveled in transforming my body, soul, and spirit while shedding more than 160 of the 300-plus pounds I carried before surgery.
I'll share my personal experiences of restoring my health and changing my lifestyle, and I'll offer spiritual encouragement, social and emotional tools, nutritious recipes, health information, and more. I've had a few challenges along the way, but through all the struggles I've grown stronger and regained my health and my life. I had my surgery on Easter Monday, 2006, which I call my personal resurrection day. Because of my transformation, I now look forward to many more "miles to go", and I invite you to travel with me on the road to a happier, healthier lifestyle...yes you can...I just did!

After bariatric surgery, it's important to get in lots of nutritious foods, but it's hard to eat enough protein and vegetables to meet our nutritional needs. We all know about protein shakes, supplements, and powders, but what about those healthy vegetables?
I've discovered a great way to add more nutrition into my day with Amazing Grass Green Superfood Powder. Along with taking vitamins and protein supplements, Green Superfood is loaded with nutrition and it makes a great addition to a protein shake.
Now before you decide you don't want to drink anything that has the word "grass" in it...you should try it. It it amazingly good and it comes in original, berry, and chocolate flavors. (And we all know that you can never go wrong with chocolate.) It doesn't have a vitaminy or grassy taste at all.
My basic recipe also includes protein powder and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Click here or check the "Protien Shake Recipe" section for more "amazing" recipes to get you started.
Amazing Grass Green Superfood can be purchased at The Vitamin Shop or your local health food store.
