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.

Tired Bunny/One bad thing

Last night I was in bed with the lights off at 9:30pm. That is unheard of for me, as I am typically a night owl.

However, I'm pretty darn busy right now, I had a hard weights session last night, and top off all that with the monster amount of cleaning and running around - I think it was a well deserved night off.

One bad thing: Old habits die hard. 

I was out at the walmart getting a new doormat, and thought that I would go and get a tiny small ice cream, but inside I already knew that I was going to get a pint. And that I was going to eat that pint all by myself.

As if.

So I got home, told myself a bunch of lies about how good I've been and how I'm only going to eat a little bit. Then I sat down on the couch with the spoon - and tried to eat it all. I couldn't. Gandalf the Sleeve Wizard did his job and stopped me.  So, all I did was make myself sick, and barfing ice cream is really so so nasty, so nasty. 

Mission accomplished ...  in terms of negative reinforcement. I have the remainder of that pint in the freezer and honestly, the flavor is not appealing anymore.

Weigh in this morning; 251.4 - holding steady.

On a good note - we had our house listed last night and there are 4 viewing booked for today, 2 for Thursday and one for Friday already.  WOOT!  Sell Sell Sell.


  1. I've had a few of those ice cream episodes myself. Negative reinforcement is a powerful tool!

    1. yep. That the the sleeve are helping for sure. Have to kick this ice cream love to the curb!

  2. I havent had any issues with ice cream. I try to keep it to a 1/2 cup when I do have it tho. Glad you are holding steady weight wise! Good luck with the house!

    1. yep, if I can keep it to a little cup I'm good, but free ranging access to pints is my secret kryptonite. Ug.

      Keeping on... keeping on!
