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.

I've been rock'n and roll'n at the office and at home. Lots of projects on the go, not time to stop.

Weight is doing good - I'm in the early part of the month "stall" where I be-bop around in the same pound range for a week or more.

Weighed in at 252.2 today. Still, I'm very pleased and trusting my sleeve, Gandalf to do his job.  He is, but I'm doing my part too!

Water has been a problem these last couple of days, so I'm going to concentrate on that today and this weekend.

I have my second interview later this morning. I woke up at 3am and was wide awake until 6am...got another 40 min of sleep after that, and then it was up shower, dress, and eat.  I've thought about it, prepped for it. Now I just have to do it.

Last night I even managed to get in a 45min walk.
