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.

Happy Valentines Everyone!!

I have a date with the Husbeast tonight to go and see DIE HARD 4!!!!!  A good day to die harder or whatever.  25 years ago the first movie came out... damn that made me feel OLD. 

Weigh In this morning - 252.6  :)

Happily heading back down from my stress-ball week.  I'm feeling significantly better, still a little nervous.  I should be getting a written offer this Friday!!

But, for now I have other things to focus on. Chiefly, house selling.  Our realtor called and said the market has taken off and we need to get ready for our house to get listed next week, Wednesday. This Sunday we are having two people come through for a pre-opening viewing (yay!).  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a very quick sale. She is even re-doing the comps and pricing because what we thought would be good 3 weeks ago is too low now.  Great news for us!

So evenings this week are just pounding my way through all the little chores...changing light bulbs, cleaning stuff, polishing the glass wear, dusting, packing boxes, organizing the drawers and cupboards, etc, etc, etc.

Okay.  Time to get to work. My blogging has fallen off this month - I need to get back on it.

and for you singles out there.... here is your gift from me! 


  1. OOOOH good luck tomorrow on the offer! And on a totally different and unrelated note, I am just staring at your weights for the last few weeks and thinking, OMG I was so totally there, RIGHT where you are. I plateaued for what felt like forever in my 4th month post-op and I ended up losing -2 pounds for the entire MONTH! And it was event the month of Feb because I was also sleeved in Oct. (of 2010) and I was PISSED about it (maybe I still am, he he...) Anyway just wanted to say DO NOT GIVE UP, this too shall pass and you will continue to lose. Hang in there!

    1. YES!!! Thank you for this!!!

      It has been REALLY frustrating for the last 13 days, but yes... keeping on keeping on. This is a race that I'm going to win. Feb is a terrible month anyway. :)

  3. Here, here! February is officially half over now, though, so things should be looking up. Have a wonderful day tomorrow and good luck on your "viewing"!
