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.

Weekend Update

Well, I've not been doing as good with the water as I wanted yesterday, so today I will have to re-double my efforts.  As soon as it is out of sight, its out of mind.

Missed posting yesterday, I spend the day collecting up and doing crafty things for a friends coming baby shower!  She is having twins. One boy One Girl. It's going to be amazing!!!  I'll have to post some pictures once we are done with all the decorations. 

I ate well yesterday, and I'm planning on another good one today.  There is the last of the Christmas eggnog left that is going into my coffee this morning.  Other than that, I need to hit the grocery store for a few things for this week.  More veg, and I think that I get some cooking done tonight for the weeks lunches.  Turkey meatloaf and some other things. I have time to get that done and get the kitchen clean afterwards. Nothing is more annoying then starting the week with a sink full of dishes that need cleaning on Monday after work.  Bleck!  Mondays are tough enough.

There is lots of cleaning and sorting to get done as well.  Seems like its going to be a very domestic Sunday for me.

Weigh in Saturday: 260.6
Weigh in Sunday: 259.2

Sheesh, I'm bouncing around a lot. I think that this is due to two things.  1. water intake, and 2. period coming on.  That does seem to keep me bloated up for sure.  Ah hormones. 

However, I've been doing some thinking on the end of the year coming.  Hard to believe its come and gone this quickly.  I'm excited for my Month end post, as well as for my 3 month sleeversary (Jan 15).   I can't believe its still under 3 months from surgery.   Crazy!


  1. Wow! Almost 3 months! You've done such a great job over the holidays--and looks like you've lost a little more even with that time of the month coming up. :-) I agree about prepping for the work week...luckily I have a week of working at home (still healing) but will need to get back into that routine next weekend. Have a super day!

    1. Thanks Karen!! Yep... I need to add back in some food tracking again... Got to keep the protein up! :D

  2. I've never thought of using eggnog for creamer. It sounds good. I'll have to try it. I ended up buying eggnog Dec. 26 because I realized I hadn't bought any for my family. :)

    1. Totally yummy...maybe TOO yummy!! :)
