No Dough Pizza!

I am posting this from the library since my computer is on the fritz, so no picture of this yummy goodness so you will just have to try it.  Since my surgery I can not have most types of breads and doughs.  A friend sent this recipes to me and though its not the kind of pizza you would pick up with your hands, it is sooo good, AND it makes the pizza craving go away!  It is both bariatric and diabetic friendly, only one ingredient is not a protein, yet it is yummy, and ooey gooey goodness for ANYONE to enjoy!


1 package cream cheese (room temp)
2 eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (I used a roasted red pepper blend)
pizza sauce
1 package shredded cheese
your favorite pizza toppings (I used turkey pepperoni and turkey sausage)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cream cheese, eggs, garlic, and parm cheese together until cream cheese is well blended.  Pour into greased 9x13 baking pan.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  It should now almost resemble tofu.

Put sauce, cheese, and any toppings on now baked cheese mixture.  Bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Let sit for a minute and enjoy!

This whole recipe is nothing but protein and would be great for you bariatric patients.  I am one month out and it went down great!  Hope everyone enjoys it!

Back to Work

I went back to work Monday.  I must say even though it was a bit of a rough day, I am so glad to be back.  Boredom had set in and taken completely over my life.  While I was down I not only got all of my thank you cards done, but my Christmas cards are done, AND I started to crochet a blanket! lol
Tuesday went much better.  Not so much pain and a bit more energy.  I think I just needed to get back in the swing of things.  Still sticking to small things like a protein shake or pudding cup at work.  I am so scared of getting sick at work.  I would be so embarrassed if that happened.
I am also down to 394! Its hard for me to think of myself 111 pounds heavier than I am now, but the reality is that I WAS! I have come so far and have so much farther to go.  I cant wait to see myself in one year!
