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.

Desk Drawer and things

The fabulous Miss Lori at I Just Ate My Willpower had a fun task for us this morning!  What does your desk drawer look like!   Weeeee!

Of course, I'm moving desks on Friday, so this is substantially better then usual in terms of amount and organization.
  • Oatmeal packets
  • Blue lid - Natural Peanut butter
  • Pink lid - tuna
  • Zip lock - Big Train Chai Latte protein powder
  • Small silver lid - V8
  • Large silver lid - Zero Calorie Orange fizzy water drink
  • Tampons
  • Halloween decorations
Pretty unexciting mix all in!

Weigh in this morning was considerably better.  251.8.  Much better then the last few days, but this month is going to be a near zero bust. Its not a GAIN, so I can't be too unhappy.  

Tonight is yoga, I don't want to go already, which is a clear sign that I should! ha! 

The House was inspected yesterday, there are no major issues that came from it - so our realtor said - they typically hear about it right away if there is.  So we are proceeding.  March 29 is the clear out date, so we need to find a place asap to rent while we look for a new home.  Starting that today!!

Three days and counting to the new job starts. Things are starting to get uncomfortable. Everyone is sad and not shy about telling me how big a hole I'm going to leave, and how much they love working with me.  Ouch.

If only they had been as proactive about keeping me here... 

Anyway, its hard, because, I really HATE letting people down and have been in a self-deprecating spiral as I tell people they will find someone as good, it won't be an issue, etc. etc. blah. 

They aren'tha! I said it. 

I'm awesome, I worked twice as hard for half the pay, ate twice the sh*t sandwiches from the grumpy people I work with, smiled and kept going.  I really care about doing an excellent job, on top of being a great funny entertaining person to be around. So, they are sad for a reason, but they want to blame me and that's the hard part for me not to internalize.


  1. Love your attitude about your old co-workers! :) Awesome sauce!

    1. how many calories are in awesomesauce? perhaps this is the reason I've been in a big stall for Feb? teehee!!

  2. DO NOT INTERNALIZE their outpouring of boo-hoo-ey-ness! You did an awesome job and they didn't appreciate until now. Too late! It's nice to know that you will be missed so just take it as a compliment, hold your head high and say thanks, I will miss you all too, but thank goodness for social media, we can stay "in touch" and let it go!!

    1. Yes! Working on this one. Smile - Thank you - I'll be down a floor, drop in and see me anytime and... see you on LinkedIn.

      :D teehee!
