I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs,
the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

July Recap 2015

Not much happened in July except more of the same bs. 
Me complaining about weight gain, job shit etc. 

Aug 1 I decided to get my poop in a scoop and stop effing about. 

Back on food diary
Protein is king
Carbs last
More water

In what has been on of the most stressful weeks of my life this last year... I managed to lose 5 lbs, write two finals, learn my new job and work full time on my old job, and manage the last week of work with the woman at work that has been basically bullying me. (She is a contractor that was terminated (not for the reason I wanted, but still a win)).

Anyway, stopping the self denial and crappy attitude has demo straightens that I'm NOT faulty. I an NOT broken
I CAN lose weight when I do the right stuff. 

Boom. Truth hurts. My attitude is the problem.

Ug... Those famous words....

Wish in one hand, piss in the other. See which one fills up first.

I wish...

That I hated food and only ate because I needed to. 
That I didn't think about food all the time.
That there was something else in my life that made me feel as good as eating.

June Recap 2015


Job bullshit came to a head this last week. 
My new boss was demoted, and I've been wondering what will happen to me. 
This morning I was offered a new position in another department, which I think will suit me a lot better. Phew!

Been trying to get more water in, middling success. 
Exercise is getting better, squats are going up in weight and I'm starting to feel strong again. 
Food.... Still snacking when I'm not hungry, but I'm slowly reigning it in. 

Wrote my midterms, passed. 
Just pounding away at my courses and pushing through.
