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.

Christmas dinner

Not your traditional meal for us two, but it was very tasty.

Aged New York strip (local grass ranged!)
Roasted Beets
Steamed Asparagus

Mine was the smaller steak (other half is in the fridge for tomorrow) and of that, there was a large bit of fat on the edge was cut off for the dog. So the portion was about half. The dog enjoyed that Christmas meat snack! I will have stinky red pee! LOL.

Nothing like beets and asparagus to remind us that we are what we eat!

Weigh in this morning: 259.8

Another day in the 250's!! Merry Christmas too me!


  1. your weight loss journey has gone really well...hey looks like a great holiday dinner to me! Have a wonderful holiday

  2. Looks yummy! Congrats on being in the 250s! You have made some awesome progress. :)

    1. Thanks Linda! It was a really nice change from the overeating that I would typically indulge in for a holiday. Any old excuse to overstuff.

      The 250's is a mental landmark for sure. I'm struggling right now, but its good. Movement, challenge, its all progress! :)
