  1. I love it!! Thanks for all your information!

  2. No no, thank you for stopping by and having a look! Now go tell all your friends, family, pets, friends of your pets etc… all about us :-)


  3. Told all my friends, family and the dog ( although I have to admit he didn’t seem to be as excited to find your site as I was lol). Keep up the great work. LOVE the videos. Cracks me up and provides great info to boot!


  4. I say you sit the dog in front of the screen and each time you hit the play button on our show you give the little bugger a steak. I’m sure in no time he’ll be as excited about the show as the rest of the community. Not to mention he’ll be getting that much needed protein :-)

    Thanks for the comment!!


  5. You are so right about needing peer support. I know for myself people who don’t really know about WLS can’t relate to my new life style. Some feel I have made a huge mistake others and my favorite term OH you took the easy way out. I have made so many good friend from across the country via the internet that now we try and get a week end get together once a year and its so much fun..
    Again I am starting to sound like a broken record Keep Up The GREAT work,


  6. Hey Star,

    I’m Mike and I am the producer/editor/camera jockey on the show, as well as Toni’s husband. I am sure one of the girls will be on here in the morning to say hi. But since I was just finishing up editing and checked the site, I wanted to say thanks for your enthusiasm and numerous comments on the videos. It’s great to know when our crazy antics connect with the audience and put a smile on their faces.

    Thanks again,


  7. Heya Michele, Felicia and Star! Thanks SO much for the feedback! Toni, Mike and I have such a great time doing this (well.. Mike has ALL the work to do after the camera stops … so he might not be having as much of a great time as I am!) Please be sure to check in on our upcoming episodes.. More great info, recipes and comedy! And I am sure we will be having a ‘bloopers’ episode soon.. Toni and I provide SOOOO much good footage for one of those.. LOL

  8. Are you kidding? I spend a good part of my time editing laughing at you and Toni’s antics!! Plus I have this weird sickness where I like sitting in dark rooms editing video…. it’s a disease I tell ya!

    Mike (who is about to put the finishing touches on show 5)

  9. Incredible job guys!!! I didn’t know it was posted or I would have been here sooner. Super episode! Thanks so much for making me part of it and I’m looking forward to many more to come. You guys were a pleasure to work with!
    Many blessings, Yvonne

    Thanks so much for such a wonderful comment. It’s comments like yours that keep us putting in the needed hours to produce these shows. And a huge thanks for sending the link off to your friends about us. The more folks we have here the better chance we have at drumming up some needed sponsor support for the show.

    And speaking of sponsors, if you really want to help us out please visit and use our coupon code of BTV to order 2 cans of Click. The code gives you free shipping and a free blender bottle, and it gives us a chance to show the sponsor the value of being a part of the show.

    Thanks again!!
