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.

We have 2 full price offers on the house today.  HURRAY!!!   Houses in our area were going fast - we knew that, but we didn't know HOW fast.  So we are going to sign off on one of them today and get this party started.  Looks like we will be moving by the 28th of March.  OMG!

HURRAY!!!!!  and ... jeeze already!!!  haha

Last night I went and joined a beginners yoga class. It was hard, I have very inflexible feet and ankles, so that makes it tough, but... I liked it and I have a 10 class pass to use over the next 3 months.  So yoga will be done.

Scale was up this morning, 252.2lbs.

I had dinner (3/4 of an Amy's veggie lasagna) at 9pm last night. I should have had a protein shake and went to bed, but I'm not making really good decisions right now. I need to remedy this.  Have any of you ever heard of Decision Fatigue

I know that I have this....my job is making 1,000 decisions an hour, being a wife is all about decisions, the house, the food, the dog, the car, the cleaning, what we are doing, when it needs doing, how its going to be done.  My Husbeast is a wonderful man, but he isn't great at getting anything done and decided. Thats my job.  *sigh* 

Decision Fatigue is basically research showing that the more decision you make in the day (even little easy ones), the harder decisions are to make further along (even the easy ones!).  Its a big reason why I make poor choices at night (so think I), and why the decisions about me and my health tended to be poor... because I was so far down the priority list.  Which, I'm working on changing that too.

Anyway - that's my little psa today.  Its some interesting stuff.


  1. OMG I so have this...there are times when I have to make a decision I'm like I can't do it...just can't do it! I remember buying a brand new house and thinking how much fun it would be to pick everything out...we got to the point where we were picking out grout and I lost it...started crying and just couldn't pick out a stupid grout color...now this totally makes sense.

  2. Thats super fast on the house congrats! I am a slow decision maker. I eventually get there but it takes me a minute. Keep up the good work! The weight will be gone again soon!

  3. CONGRATS on the house offer!!! Keep on working on putting YOURSELF at the top of the list, it is worth it. Hang in there!

  4. I'm fascinated by this decision fatigue. I'm going to look into it.

    I'm so excited you started yoga! I used to practice a lot years ago and I loved what it did for my life at the time. One of my goals is to get down 50 lbs so I get back to it like I used to. Yoga will be so good for your feet and ankles too. It hurts in the beginning, but as your feet start to loosen and become stronger, it makes the rest of your body stronger. I hope you love it!
