Baptist Bariatric Center is leading in quality care receiving multiple Center of Excellence designations. Last month, Jeffrey Friedman, M.D., bariatric surgeon, was recognized as a Center of Excellence surgeon for providing high quality bariatric patient care and proven surgical outcomes.
In 2007, the Baptist Bariatric Center was the first weight-loss surgery program in northwest
Florida to be recognized by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric surgery as a Center of Excellence. In addition, J. David Nye, M.D., bariatric surgeon, was granted the same honor.
A Center of Excellence designation further recognizes that Baptist Health Care is meeting the
highest standards in bariatric patient care – a key factor in the patient decision process.

-Just a reminder that my one year bandiversary is two weeks from today. My goal is to be at 120 pounds lost by then. And I will do it! I go for my 1 year follow up appointment a week from today, so not so secretly, I want to be at 120 pounds down by then. That is my stretch goal!
-I know some of you are struggling with water consumption. I like to make a little game out of my water drinking, and aim for 120 ounces a day. I buy the 20 ounce bottles from Walmart...and this makes it easier for my math challenged brain. I bring just one to work with me and refill it at the fountain. Once I finish one bottle, I get my little sharpie out and make a tick mark. I like to have 5 tick marks by the time I go home, which leaves only water bottle left to drink when I get there. Here is my bottle so far for today.
I think I will save my shameless product placements for the next post! Hope everyone is having a wonderful hump day!
And HELLO to all my new followers! Followers are the blog equivalent to...no...I can't post it. Everything I was thinking of involved the word climax....and as a lady...I must refrain.
LOL..but you get the point! Thank you for reading, and commenting, and emailing. It means more to me than you know!
I like your water game and your peep toe shoes...very cute! I am gonna have to make the trip down to FL. so we can hang out...I need a mini vaca anyway so why not there!ReplyDelete
I love ya girl. Your posts always make me smile. HUGSReplyDelete
Love the shoes :) I think the photo shoot idea sounds awesome - go for it! I should say Happy Bandiversary now - since I will be otherwise indisposed that day =:)ReplyDelete
Love the water idea!!! I'm def going to try that!! You have only 6 lbs to your 120 goal! You can do it!!! AMAZING!ReplyDelete
The water bottle idea is great. I've been thinking of putting rubber bands or something around mine as I polish a bottle off, but then I'd have to carry the bands around with me. This would probably work better....ReplyDelete
Thanks for the idea, I'm going to contemplate it for a while ;)
Way to step away from the Sunkist! Love the tuck-and-roll stuff. The water bottle idea is awesome, thanks for the tip. Have a good day!ReplyDelete
I think that water idea is BRILLIANT! I can promise you that I will be theiving that idea!! :DReplyDelete
WOW...a year. How amazing! :) and almost 120 down? WOW...that is soooo inspiring. I am so so so so excited and happy for you! (and heck, I am excited for myself as well! although I dont have a date yet..)
Needed the laugh ~ thanks ~ you always crack me up!! ;-)ReplyDelete
i think your surgeon is a little hottie!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Well done Amy.. You beat the sunkist.. it's doesnt own you anymore.. lol.. But truely, Well done.. I wish I had that willpower, when things are thrown in my face..ReplyDelete
I love your water idea.. I'm going to try that today.
Missed your blogging sweet thang
Great idea Amy , I'll just have to do that.Love the shoes.ReplyDelete
you are a smart cookie. love the water bottle idea. (and the rubber band one posted above).ReplyDelete
love the pic....i have a tattoo on my foot too. my daughter's name in hebrew with pixie dust...
Ames, you are so cute and how did I know there would be a star tat on you SOMEWHERE? Cause my shanny bug has one on each of her feet too!! I do sort of the same thing with my water, but instead of the yucky fountain water we have in my building, I refill from the Brita pitcher I purchased and keep in the office fridge! I LOVE the mental picture of Tracey tucking and rolling to snatch the Sunkist from your hands..too funny. Keep up the inspiration, I'll be counting down to your 120 with you...YOU CAN DO IT!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the chuckle. I love reading your blog. Goal of 120lbs. piece of cake for you girl! Love the water bottle idea, I definately need to get more water in each day. Good Luck to you.ReplyDelete
How exciting with the bandiversary approaching! You have done an aweseome job in 12 months, good on you! Thanks for following my blog too, appreciate it :)ReplyDelete
Pah! Why can't my doc look like that!!! He's a cutie.ReplyDelete
Wow - one year coming up already and you are so totally going to reach that goal you set. I just know it.
Dang - meant to say love the new blog layout too. Sunshine and rays - just like you. xxxReplyDelete
Amy! I hope you reach your goal for your 1 year how exciting :) I can't wait to do Budoir photos!! I wasn't able to do them before my wedding, but you better believe I will do them before I pop out a few children!ReplyDelete
chug chug chug WATER!
I love those shoes, any shoe shoeing a hing of toe is sexy!ReplyDelete
A photo shoot would be an awesome reward. that is one of mine for goal time....a makeover and a photo shoot (i'd even consider doing some semi naked ones too). Also, I apologise for using the term Food Porn in past posts...never dreamt that someone would imagine fruit sex! LOL....love the new layout!
Love the new background! I too refill water bottles at work! Keep up the great work and I know you'll reach your 120lb goal!ReplyDelete
Amy, you never cease to amaze me how funny you can be!! I so wish I could meet you some day!! But alas, I live on the far side of the States from you, & no one I blog with lives close to me!ReplyDelete
Good thinking with the water game! :) I got a cute new water bottle for Christmas (one with a straw because I can't run and open a water bottle with a twist lid) and try to fill it as many times as I can in a day. I can't draw on it so I'll have to think of some other way to keep track.ReplyDelete
Love the shoes... and you two fun-sized ladies :D
Okay, I had all these comments I was going to post but now that I got through reading everyone else's, I forgot...LOL! Are you sure you are older than me :).ReplyDelete
Glad you like the shoes, peep toes are my fav heels!
I would love to do a boudoir shoot, after my plastics work (it ain't pretty down there right now). I always wanted to take my photography business into the boudoir realm but it just isn't very popular here...in Vegas I think I'll have a chance :).
As for your 120 goal in 1 year, you will make it NO issues!
Omg the glam pin up shots! I might have to copy that. I absolutely love the look of that era and want to buy a huge coffee table book of those shots. The guy in Ark who did my flower tat on my shoulder loved it too and he had 3 coffee table books. They were awesome!ReplyDelete
You would look so good in that, I'm so excited for you. So if you can't tell I'm like 2 wks behind on reading. I'm going to catch upon yours RIGHT NOW! look out for old old comments!
