It's been three weeks since my bariatric sleeve surgery and it's time for some humorous updates. You wouldn't think it but pureed food can be tasty. NeiR: Automata won't let me save. I've lost enough weight to be able to do things I haven't been able to do in a while.

I'm two weeks out from my bariatric surgery so let's talk about transitioning from my liquid-only diet to my pureed diet. I'm talking bananas, mashed potatoes, baby food and more. A sweet high-school bacon bit memory. I was on narcotics in the hospital and saw things I'll never see again. Enjoy!

Yay 200 episodes! (Finally!)
