2012 - 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.

2017 - I'm preop for the Duodenal Switch procedure for my sleeve to help me get to goal weight....and to fix another hiatal hernia.

Alls well!

Poop happened this morning. Feeling good. I think that its just my body adjusting to the small amount of food that I've been eating.

I have my list and spreadsheet and its hilarious to see that I used to consume more before 11am then I do in an entire day now.

Correlation much.... maybe?! :)

my body is sore and tired, I do have a bit of arthritis and its starting to act up now that I've been off the anti-inflams for 2 weeks.  Its not nice, but next Monday is my 2 week follow up and I'll just have to wait for them to tell me when I can get back on them.

I'm actually anticipating that my arthritis is going to be considerable less painful without an extra 100lbs bearing down on it everyday. 

My mouth is feeling like carpet. Not eating anything/chewing anything is leaving my tongue all fuzzy. Time to break out the toothbrush then go and watch some Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. LOL  Fat girl porn.


  1. Hi! Glad I found your blog, as I also have arthritis, and will be hopefully having gastric bypass in a few months. (My insurance doesn't cover the sleeve so it wasn't an option.) Your progress is so impressive! Have a great week.

  2. Hi Karen! I'm heading to your blog right now! Gratz on the surgery option.

    Sadly, my surgery wasn't covered by insurance.... so it was a major discussion with me and the hubby to find and spend that much money on something like this.

    But we haven't regretted it. He is so happy to see me happy. Can't wait to follow your progress too.
