I just want to clear up one thing right here, right now blogoverse...I am NOT averse to doing Pouch Parties outside of Maryland. I get messages from folks saying how they'd love to have this experience but they don't live in MD. Well, here's a tip: if you're willing to get enough folks together to have a party...I could come to you! I'm crazy like that! Hit me up! It may be a real possibility.
I thought I'd give my little spiel on why this is so important to me. Pre-op I hated to cook. My children and I did the carry-out, pizza night, carry-out schedule. Imagine my surprise post-op that I actually like to cook! Am interested in nutrition! I spend hours reading labels, comparing nutritional stats, finding the very best ingredients, the most beneficial recipes, not only for myself but because I don't want anyone out there who has had WLS to feel like they'll never eat well again! I truly believe I've been given this gift to share it with other people.
So seriously...if you're interested in having a party and you're willing to help make it happen...let me know...it may not be impossible.
