Roasted Greek Mushroom Salad is a healthy Greek mushroom salad that will delight your taste buds. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.

It is funny, I started off my “starting over new in an old apartment” changes, the first change was getting rid the old furniture. I realized that old furniture were reminders of my past, all the pain I had gone through. In a way, me being afraid to move on.

Well, in this process now that the new furniture is here, I can not explain it, but I really feel like a huge weight was lifted from me. I feel a positive force around me. With that said, I come to realize, I don’t like my body. I always think I am smaller than what I am. I do diet all the time, but my weight yo yo’s so bad.

I had to go to my doctor for a checkup and I saw I had gained weight, which I knew because I been under a lot of stress, between my parents health, daily stress from life, and I think I got dumped again, that is another story, let just say it was over I think before it started, I like a relationship, he wants just fun. so that put an end to that relationship. So, I expected to see again.

During the visit, I asked, which surprised me as the words came out my mouth, “what is the deal with the bariatric program we have?” My doctor and I talked, and in a way, I do qualify. I eat healthily, believe it or not. Many of the sweets I make on here, I take to work, I actually do not eat them. Well, I am always on a diet. I cut out fast foods. I don’t like pop or soda as most say, I drink tons of water, lemon water mostly. I do everything I possibly can, but I have the hardest time, no matter what I do, losing weight. I have done everything from protein diets, which work, but then stops, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Curves, oh I could go on with diets I been on.

At one time  my problem was I was losing weight for everyone but me, finally I realized I want to lose weight for me. I need help, I want to see what a bariatrics thinks is best for me. I am ready, I want to do this for me. I want to like my body. I love to do a YouTube cooking thing, but I am afraid because I am not a size 2.
Rupaul has a quote:

It is true, it took me 6 years to overcome an abusive marriage, and have the confidence I have now. Maybe the reason I am having issues finding someone is because I simply do not love myself fully, meaning my body. So I made the first step, I asked for the consult.
