Patient Spotlight: Maggy

Me alone now

It has been awhile since we had a nice dose of motivation on here. And what better way to kick of the holiday season than with a patient spotlight story of someone who transformed her life?!

Maggy puts it best when she says, “One of the best things to come of this is that I’m now in a position to help other people.”

Weight loss surgery does not happen in a vacuum. You will make life long friendships with your team at WeightWise and the people you confide in at support group. They will help pull you through hard times and you will help lift them up and motivate others toward their goals.

Since we are on the brink of a difficult few months of weight loss (or weight loss maintenance) during the holiday season, I hope you find some motivation in our Patient Spotlight with Maggy’s story.

Roasted Chicken Legs

chicken

Sometimes a full turkey is just too much. Using chicken legs or turkey legs in place of an entire bird is a great option for smaller families that don’t need such a large portion. Another benefit of using just the legs instead of the whole bird is that you don’t need to spend hours watching the oven and basting the turkey. This is a great way to make a smaller portion and save you time to spend with your family instead of in the kitchen!

Enjoy this recipe for roasted chicken legs this year.

Slow Cooker Asian Pork

It has been a busy week at the clinic. It is great to be busy, but cooking dinner after a long day is not as great. So when going through my recipe binder looking for slow cooker recipes- I sadly became aware about how many non-chili slow cooker recipes I have (very few). So I set out to not only try out a few new recipes but to use different kinds of protein in the slow cooker. To get out of my rut, I chose to make a slow cooker asian pork recipe.

Chicken is very common in my slow cooker. I opted this time to use a pork tenderloin for this slow cooker asian pork which turned out amazing. When looking for new slow cooker recipes, I typically look for one with a good protein and seasonings. Anything other ingredients, I can easily modify to be low carb and bariatric friendly.
